URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/politics/article/rep_ackerman_introduces_shalit_resolution_20110622

U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-N.Y.) introduced a resolution calling for the immediate and unconditional release of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. Tuesday's resolution is Ackerman's third calling for Shalit's release. He introduced similar measures in March 2007 and June 2010 during previous Congresses. Next week will mark five years since Shalit was captured by Hamas in a cross-border raid.
