STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON MEETING WITH PARENTS OF KIDNAPPED ISRAELI SOLDIERS

“Today I met with the families of Cpl. Gilad Shalit, Sgt. Udi Goldwasser, and Sgt. Eldad Regev, three soldiers who were kidnapped last summer and have yet to be returned to their families in Israel. I want to clearly and unambiguously add my name to those demanding that the terrorist captors release these three men unconditionally.  I also hope concerned human beings around the world will join me in calling for the enforcement of United Nations Security Council resolution 1701, which calls for the unconditional release of Udi Goldwasser and Eldad Regev. The families told me today how desperate they are for a sign of life. I want them to get that sign and soon after see them reunited with their loved ones.”
