Noam Shalit, father of the kidnapped IDF Cpl. Gilad Shalit, expressed on Sunday his dissatisfaction with the government's dealing with his son's kidnapping. Shalit said he feels ignored by the Prime Minister's Office. "I called the [Prime Minister's] Office and I'm still waiting that they call me back," said Shalit. "The information I receive is minimal, and nobody cares to update us on where things stand." Regarding events such as Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's meeting with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas or the decision to release prisoners, Shalit said "I receive no information on these things." "We are disappointed. We would expect the prime minister and the government to come up with more creative solutions dealing with a crisis like this." He added that "looking at the result we have achieved nothing. Unfortunately, after six months I cannot give good news not to him nor to us."
