French President Nicolas Sarkozy expressed support for Israel in its struggle to free kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, AFP reported early Thursday morning. "France will never forget Gilad Schalit," he was quoted as saying. Speaking of the release of Ingrid Betancourt, who had been held hostage by Columbian rebels, the French president ended his address with "a message to Gilad Shalit and his parents." "We have not forgotten," he said, "France is always ready to enlist in the battle for a man held unjustly."
