Sarkozy letter is delivered to Schalit family in Jerusalem

French Ambassador to Israel Christophe Bigot on Saturday delivered a letter from French President Nicolas Sarkozy to the family of captive soldier Gilad Schalit at their protest tent in Jerusalem. Saturday marks the fifth anniversary of Schalit's kidnapping by Hamas terrorists, who are holding him in the Gaza Strip.
The letter, which addresses the captive soldier directly, said, "I cannot accept that you are not permitted to have simple communications," urging his captors to allow the Red Cross to meet with him. "It is time for those responsible for your captivity make a decision and end your imprisonment," Army Radio reported.
