Thousands of young people demonstrated on Thursday for the release of kidnapped soldiers Ehud Goldwasser, Eldad Regev and Gilad Shalit. Members of the youth group "Aharai" organized a march and a protest in a show of solidary with the captured soldiers' family and friends, who joined them for the culminating demonstration. Shlomo Goldwasser, the father of kidnapped soldier Ehud Goldwasser, addressed the crowd of youths, who will begin their term of army service next year, saying: "I look at you, and I know you, too, have worth. We must rely on you, and you too must have confidence that from wherever you are sent, they will also bring you back." "Our sons must be brought home at any cost," said Zvi Regev, the father of Eldad Regev. "I am asking the Prime Minister: enough with words and declarations. The time has come to take action and bring our sons home. We are celebrating the holiday of freedom, but they have no freedom."
