Today (Sunday), in light of recent developments with Hamas, parents of the late and missing IDF Lieutenant Hadar Goldin made a special statement.

Lea and Simha Goldin announced that they intend to petition the Israeli Supreme Court against the government’s policy on the issue of prisoners of war and those missing in action. The family is demanding that the bodies of terrorists be held, as well as a change in the conditions of Hamas prisoners.

“Instead of placing effective pressure, the Israeli government is winking at Hamas,” Simha stated. “The government isn’t standing its ground but surrendering. Netanyahu- be a ‘protective edge’ against Hamas. An Israeli surrender to all the humanitarian demands and the continuation of the ‘summer camps’ in the prisons is absurd.”

“Every other government charges a heavy price from terror organizations holding captive soldiers,” Lea Goldin added. “Instead of charging a price, the Israeli government is sending hundreds of (supply) trucks into Gaza every day.”

As reported last week by JOL, the Goldins urged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to demand information about the fate of the missing Israelis in response to the humanitarian requests on the Palestinian side.
