The grandfather of captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit had some scathing criticism for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday. "I had hoped when Netanyahu was appointed prime minister that he would act in a different way to his predecessor, but so far he hasn't," Zvi Schalit told Channel 2. "Since he was made prime minister, I can tell you that nothing has been done. I know that we've had no sign of life in a year. Since June 2008, there's been no sign of life from Gilad." Not for the first time, Zvi said that he had asked to meet Netanyahu but had not yet received a response. "The next move is in the prime minister's hands alone. He is the authority and he is the one who can save Gilad," he added.
