Noam Schalit on Wednesday said that he was "worried" that his son would not be freed by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's government. "This feels pressing," Schalit told Army Radio from his protest tent across from the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem. "It is worrying that the government will be replaced and the issue of Gilad will pass on to the next government." Noam also thanked the family of missing Israeli airman Ron Arad for their support, saying, "There's no one like the Arads, who can understand what we're going through and tell us what we should do or what we ought to do that they hadn't done."
