Gilad Schalit's comrades to Olmert: Don't let him return in a coffin

Gilad Schalit's army comrades, who will be discharged from the IDF in two days, sent a letter to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Sunday in which they implored him to ensure that Schalit is not returned "in a coffin." "We are being released today, but when will Gilad be released?" the soldiers wrote. "You, Mr. Olmert, very bravely agreed to negotiate with our most terrible enemies, and to free despicable murderers, just so the Goldwasser and Regev families could find peace and a grave to visit," they wrote. "But, Mr. Olmert, in a dark cellar somewhere down south your next moral obligation awaits you - and he is still alive, waiting day after day and hour after hour for his senders to redeem him. He has a face and a name and he has a father and a mother - who mustn't get him back in a coffin."
