Olmert: Demonstrations for Schalit's release are unhelpful

Demonstrations for the release of captured soldier Gilad Schalit do nothing to help negotiations for his return, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Friday. Speaking at Kibbutz Yifat, Olmert said: "He is being held by scum. When they see a rally of 20,000 people, what do you think - does it strengthen or weaken them?"
