Notice how uncomfortable and weak Gilad appears. He breathes heavily, his eyes are looking downward and his voice sounds unsure and anxious. In some instances the questions are depraved and vicious. This is Gilad Schalit’s first interview by an Egyptian journalist, Shahira Amin, while he is still in Cairo, Egypt. He is accompanied by a HAMAS interpreter. It is a cruel piece of propaganda for The Islamic Resistance Movement (HAMAS) and Egypt. Only later and after five (5) years of brutal captivity, does Gilad finally arrive safely back home in Israel to embrace his family.
