It is difficult to continue the day thinking about packingproblems after reading the morning's newspaper. The captured soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev are supposed to be "given back" by Hezbollah after exactly 2 years of captivity, July the 12th.
In exchange Israel will deliver Samir Kuntar who participated in an attack on an Israeli family in 1979, and murdered three Israelis: a 28 year-old man, his 4-year-old daughter, and an Israeli policeman; the man's 2 year-old daughter suffocated as her mother tried to quiet her crying. He was convicted in the same year, he received four life imprisonment sentences and has been in Israeli prisons ever since.
Hezbollah still doesn't want to tell the families of the abducted soldiers wether their sons are alive or not, it will be a surprise.
Karnit Goldwasser, Ehuds wife, who met Olmert yesterday told him while shaking his hand ; I've been fighting for two years, and I feel that in the end, even if I won, what has it all been for? So I can shout 'Hooray, I'm a widow'?"Her husband was only 21 years old when he got kidnapped.
Let's all pray for a miracle.
