Hundreds rally for Schalit outside European Union Parliament
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Hundreds attended a rally outside the European Union Parliament in Brussels on Thursday to show solidarity with Gilad Schalit's family, three years since the soldier's abduction.
After a human chain was formed around the building, hundreds of balloons were released.
"The fact that many non-Jewish Belgian citizens participated in the rally emphasizes the world's support for Gilad and his family," said Meir Vanchotzker, World Bnei Akiva's emissary to Belgium. "Furthermore, it is crucial to organize pro-Israeli rallies next to the European Union, since most of its members are not always Israel's biggest fans."
