Gilad was freed on Succot. Gilad by definition is the East Bank of the Jordan River. Psalm 108 is the prophetic psalm about the consolidation of Messiah's reign. Let Gilad's Shalit's release be a reminder of G-d's Covenant with Abraham whose boundaries are more in line with the Mandate of Palestine which extends to the Euphrates River and includes the Gilad. Also the word Shalit reminds of us Josephs redemption and his appointment as a Shalit, a ruler of the Egyptians.

Case Study: How Mainstream Media Whitewash Terror
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
U.S. headlines on Gaza missile attacks Saturday often made it appear that "militants" simply are responding to Israeli defensive measures. The violence began last Wednesday with a missile attack on southern Israel, but most American media implied that Israel's counterterrorist retaliation was a provocation for Saturday's multiple terrorist attacks on major urban centers.
One of the most blatant biased versions was printed in the Denver Post, which headlined, "Israel launches Gaza airstrikes; Palestinians Reply with Rockets." If the reader went past the headline, he then could discover that an Israeli spokesman "said the first attack specifically targeted a cell responsible for a Wednesday rocket attack that exploded deep inside Israel."
The New York Times, which takes one of the most extreme positions against Israel, headlined Saturday, "Israeli Drone Strike Kills Militants in Southern Gaza." The headline offered no hint that the IDF was responding to Wednesday's missile attack.
In its first paragraph, the Times made it appear that Gaza terrorists were responding to Israeli strikes and not the other way around.
"An Israeli drone strike killed five Palestinian militants at an Islamic Jihad training site in southern Gaza on Saturday…and Gaza militants fired salvos of rockets at southern Israel after Islamic Jihad pledged that it would respond forcefully to the Israeli airstrike," according to the report.
The same article highlighted a picture of a Gaza morgue and did not show any photographs of the damage and injuries in Ashkelon, Ashdod and other Israeli urban areas. The journalists mentioned that "several rockets struck in and around the Israeli port city of Ashdod and …other rockets fell in open areas.
It also took pains to report that Hamas "has made efforts to enforce a ceasefire since the last round of cross-border airstrikes and rocket attacks in August"although Hamas has taken responsibility for missile and mortar shell attacks since then.
Towards the end of the report, the Times told its readers that Israel responded to a Wednesday rocket attack.
The Washington Post also featured a picture of a Gaza Arab reportedly wounded in the IDF aerial strikes and also initially indicated that terrorists were responding to Israeli counterterrorist measures.
" Israeli aircraft struck at Palestinian militants on Saturday who responded with a volley of rockets which rained on southern Israeli towns, Israeli and Palestinian officials said," the newspaper reported.
It then quoted an Israeli military spokesman that Israel was responding to a rocket attack, which the report pointed out, "caused no casualties."
It followed with the Saturday attacks by the IDF that killed "people," not even labeling them as militants let alone terrorists. Israeli injuries were barely noted and only after the article continued, "After the first airstrike, militants in Gaza fired over 20 rockets at southern Israel."
At the time, it was not known that one civilian Israeli who had been wounded actually suffered more serious injuries than originally reported. He later died.
Reuters headlined its report by stating, "Israel Bombs Militant Base, Gazan Rockets Fall," again implying that Israel started the violence.
The second paragraph admitted that the IDF aerial strike "followed a Palestinian cross-border rocket launch this week which the Israelis blamed on Islamic Jihad."
The Associated Press also featured the picture of an Islamic Jihad "militant" being carried at a morgue, omitting any visual evidence of damage and injuries in southern Israel.
Even after the death of the Israel was reported, Bloomberg News headlined, "Israel Airstrikes on Gaza Strip Kill Nine in Worst Fighting in Two Months," not noting the death of the Israeli civilian until the end of the lead sentence.

5. Freed Terrorists Visit Temple Mount
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
A group of 15 terrorists Israel freed two weeks ago for kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit visited the Temple Mount and the grave of Faisal al-Husseini, a former Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) leader.
The terrorists, who were pictured at the Temple Mount on an Islamic website, laid a wreath at a monument to al-Faisal, who died of a heart attack in 2001 but is considered a "martyr."
He once stated, "We may lose or win [tactically] but our eyes will continue to aspire to the strategic goal, namely, to Palestine from the river to the sea.
"If we agree to declare our state over what is now only 22 percent of Palestine, meaning the West Bank and Gaza -- our ultimate goal is [still] the liberation of all historical Palestine from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] sea, even if this means that the conflict will last for another thousand years or for many generations."
The terrorists visiting his grave on the Temple Mount were freed in the deal that that included 1,027 terrorists, many sentenced to multiple life in terms in jail.
The first group of 477 was released two weeks ago and the others are to be free within six weeks, although several Cabinet ministers want the terrorists to stay in jail if Gaza terrorists continue to attack Israel.
Many of them were "deported" to Gaza and foreign countries, but others were allowed to return to Jerusalem.
The same day the terrorists were released, several of them incited for terror and called for more kidnappings of Israeli soldiers as bargaining chips for the release of other Arabs remaining in Israeli jails. One of these is Marwan Barghouti, serving five life terms for planning and organizing terrorist attacks that killed dozens of Israelis.
