(NEWS) Thousands Gather To Mark Gilad Shalit's 24th Birthday

"Family and supporters rally in Jerusalem on kidnapped soldier's 5th birthday as hostage; Sarah Netanyahu says PM is making great efforts, will meet with Schalits after return from Washington.

Thousands of people gathered in front of the Prime Minister’s house on Saturday night to mark Gilad Schalit’s 24th birthday and fifth birthday in captivity, and to pressure Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to forget Gilad when he goes to Washington next week.

'Also this year I did not buy a present, I did not bake a cake, and you will not blow out your candles,' Aviva Schalit said to the crowd. 'We are doing everything to make your wish come true, but in reality it lies in the hands of the Prime Minister who lives just across the street.'"
