Photo Friday welcomes Gilad Shalit home

After he spent nearly five and a half years in Hamas captivity, we couldn’t think of any more beautiful site than Gilad Shalit about to descend the stairs to his home, his family right behind him, and their street filled with Israelis celebrating the return of their lost son. This is what answered prayer looks like, friends!

For more images of Gilad’s historic release, visit the IDF’s image gallery.

    Praise The L_ORD! I was in Israel around the time that Gilad was kidnapped and remember the intensity of the burden of prayer and intercession The L_ORD laid on me to make for Gilad. Thank you Yeshua.

    I praise God for Gilad being out of captivity and returning to his homeland (Israel). God kept him all this time. I know it must have been very difficult for him but thank the Lord he made it. Praise the Lord! I pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Israel and angels would surround youre borders and people. God Bless

    Gilad looked as if he was released from Aischwitz while the Arbas looked at they they were returning from a 5 star holiday experience. How sick can the Arabs be?

Rabbi's Commentary
Remembering the Terror of 9/11, Confronting the Terror of Today

The attacks on 9/11 were a wake-up call to the dangers of Islamist terrorism, and the swift growth of terrorist groups such as the Islamic State should wake us up to a current threat that demands not just our vigilance, but also our unity.
