Gilad Shalit Completes Fourth Year of Hamas Captivity Hamas continues to prevent the International Red Cross from any contact with prisoner Gilad Shalit. Haaretz also reports that a Hamas “lawmaker” told a Hamas newspaper that the International Red Cross did not take the “military reality into account” when they made repeated requests to have contact with the Hamas kidnap victim. No doubt. Perhaps it is a cultural misunderstanding on the part of those who don’t approve of the segregation and psychological torture of prisoners as Hamas does.
