5,000 ride in solidarity with soldiers' families

"I hope that the government will pick up its pace on getting the kidnapped soldiers [Gilad Schalit, Ehud Goldwasser, and Eldad Regev] back," Schalit's father, Noam, said Saturday at a demonstration at Rosh Hanikra. "Everything's stuck, but we're not despondent," Schalit said. Saturday morning, some 5,000 bicyclists took part in a solidarity ride for the soldiers' families that ended at Rosh Hanikra.
