But beyond that — it seems that Shalit’s personality still remains in the dark. Over the past five years has become the kidnapped soldier to a familiar figure every house in the country, even in the world, but his personality remains an enigma. Everyone knows he was a warrior in armour, and he lives in a small settlement in the North, and he was shy boy. But what he liked to do for leisure?

Gilad did not confine himself to Israeli groups. In early life, he was cocky to watch important sports games delivered live from time zone countries distant from Israel. “He could see strange sports, Olympics, Drury. “We’re playing these tournaments PC of Winter Olympics, and he would always win.

Friends describe Gilead’s room as a typical boys, furniture motorcycle poster and Hi-Fi. “I remember we were sitting and talking.
Read us in mleil, Gilead was really upset us, “recalls Drury, smiling. “She’d walk into a room and say: ‘ he’s got a name, named Gilead. ‘”

“His mother was always fixing his clothes in the closet, so was,” adds his friend Noam Rotem, a bunch of Radio 3 and גנ”ב his window in the room turned out of the House, and we didn’t have the energy to go downstairs and out the door, we were jumping and he was mad at us.

In General, numbers, he used to spend hours in his room, even if you just sat and watched from his window at passers-by in the community. Looked at from above. “He didn’t go out a lot,” said Drury. “He was mostly at home, love the peace.”

“Gilad is a quiet and introverted person, even a cell phone he had to rush,” Rotem. “He was so shy if I sat in front of someone he didn’t know, he hadn’t looked him in the eye.”

“But he’s introspective, felt when he was there, joining bandaged. “There was something about his presence, something very relaxing without mottonot.

In high school he studied Gilad at home – the Manor kabri. He was an honors student, particularly strong in the sciences, and graduated from the Physics Department. “In the first two years of Gilad was”, shows his teacher of mathematics and physics, aa_safwat73. “He was a kid.
Bright, quiet and 12th grade, and is slightly loose rein, thankfully there is to say. He’s a little

After the children were infected in Gilad the nickname ‘ Shamu ‘ is named after a character from an old tv show, number aa_safwat73, he refused to rise. “One day someone teased him with this laughter, not evil, and Gilad had turned his pencil”, says the teacher. “I looked in astonishment and protest him.

Collected his friend Gilad, saying it was almost impossible to get him. “Was
Really hard to provoke him, “he says. “The best way was to tickle him, because he

The afternoon of Gilead during the split between meetings at the villages, especially Nahal kziv near the Observatory. The actions of the youth movements that have in the region, “the seats hazioni hanoar haoved vehalomed, he didn’t come, though each new manual tried his luck.

Remember how many times he joined us. We played mostly Taki and cards.

Running and he never stops. But there’s nothing we can do. “

On Saturday which left the base, Gilad had read books. In the locker next to his bed was always one. The last book he read before being kidnapped was the biography of Lance Armstrong, the greatest cyclist of all time. When you called, liked to catch up on sleep. “He was sleeping a lot on Saturdays”, shows his room, Yuri czerniaków. “Even when we were going in to lunch at the Club, Gilead was there on the bag and go to sleep.”

Gilad was docile and dedicated soldier. “He was very disciplined, some-one yellow not fucking boyfriend, to save time, czerniaków. “I remember, for example, the advanced training, for eight months in the army and met well
The other, had the treatment use of tanks. None of these harsh treatments
Don’t want to do-they last from morning to evening. There were two boys hiding in the bathroom, & just go there and see them crammed in the same cell. But he was so shy, he didn’t wake. He wanted what was right, but was ashamed. It’s the same “property.

When the company’s operational battalion 71, kajol as “גלב”צ “due to its similarity to Gilad Ben-Zvi, who already managed to get free. Gilad’s role in the tank gunner, and his colleagues had felt that he was a crack shot and hit well in training purposes. The first line that caught in the Kerem Shalom crossing in southern Gaza Strip, was also the last.
. From there he was to sit.

“Land in the Gaza Strip is a kind of market”, clarifies his company Alex schreibman. “It.
He came to the company’s operations, but this line straight, with all appointments and ambushes. Long stakeouts sometimes changed in his tank, and Hanan tank commander who was killed in the hijacking, was trying to keep us awake with all sorts of jokes and knowledge games. Gilad was participates less than everyone else, but with time it is opened. He was quiet at first, we didn’t know a lot about him. Would, say, ping-pong – company, Pong and knew if he plays or not. One day he just came, played, and it was really good. “

Among his friends was the first to enlist Gilead Once boarded, may loosen uniforms including
Contacts, and most see it a few times before being kidnapped. The few meetings.

Once, after his enlistment, Gilad called me when he went out Saturday and wanted me to play basketball, “recalled Rotem. “It was special because he was never initiated. Always call him. Then I tried to set him back a couple of times, but is almost always closed Saturdays. I served with Noah, and of kidnapping us to keep סינג’רו in Nabi Musa.

In terms of hiring Gilad 1A was the first act of independence, first exit bubble of mitzpe Hila. Dudu indicates that he was still a child when shnhat in on line are still immature, not yet due. “He’s a soldier who came as a child from very fair”, says Raz. “Until

With this inner peace, and I believe this is what keeps the same day. Need to think about it.
Gilad: know a tape, it is clear to him that this recording had to move something.
So now he sits in a room or cell, staring at the walls, counting the minutes and says: ‘ well, where are they? “should be very strong. But he’s stubborn enough and he said ‘ they give me. At least his things, he was convinced that the State is doing everything to bring him back. I think that’s what keeps him “.
