    Former captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit drew and kept a journal while being held by Hamas in Gaza.

    Shalit was required to leave behind his sketches and record of his captivity when he was released, Yediot Achronot reported.

    Looking briefly at this, the “news” seems to be that Rubin admitted to what the government charged (and Krugel admitted), i.e, they planned to blow up the mosque and Issa’s office. I think few people, other than Irv’s wife, thought otherwise.

    What’s more intriguing to me, if the...
