Gilad Schalit named Honorary Citizen of New Orleans


shalit_0710Marking the third anniversary of the kidnapping of Gilad Schalit by Hamas terrorists, the city of New Orleans declared the abducted IDF soldier an honorary citizen.¬† The move was initiated by Rabbi Uri Topolosky¬† who petitioned the City Council through Arnie Fielkow to issue a proclamation declaring Shalit an honorary citizen, as a measure of support to him and his family. “Gilad’s story is a symbol of the human element of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and must not be minimized as the global community strives to achieve peace in the Middle East,” the city council proclamation announcing the decision stated.
