About a year before Guy Ben-Simon was born, his parents attended the Tel Aviv rally where Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated.

Even before the prisoner swap agreement was wrapped up, Hamas began boasting of its victory and vowing to kidnap more Israeli soldiers. The Gilad Shalit abduction is proving a profitable enterprise for the Islamic terror group that controls Gaza.
