Advertising Console Headlines - Former Chief of Staff Slams Politici

    Former IDF chief of staff Moshe Ya'alon criticized recent calls to broker the release of abducted IDF soldier Gilad Shalit at any price on Sunday, saying that such calls were inappropriate as previous prisoner exchanges had encouraged additional kidnappings. Ya'alon said he agreed with statements made by Foreign minister Tzipi Livni last Thursday, who caught heavy criticism for saying that it isn't possible to bring every IDF soldier home. Ya'alon added that the issue of returning Shalit must remain above politics. 12/14/08
