"Concern for my son brought me to investigate the Islamic sources on the subject of the captives. What I read reassured me. I understood that this is a religion that relates to captives a good and equal way," said Noam Shalit, father of kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Shalit, at a press conference of Arab media that he called on Tuesday.
Still, Shalit said that "treating a captive well also includes giving information to the family about his condition after 80 days of captivity."
