Freedom



"And even when I was in the car, I thought at first 'They are moving me again', and I thought maybe they're handing me on to new kidnappers, but then as we got deeper and deeper into Gaza City, I really began at last to believe that maybe we were finishing it.

When they let me out of the car, there were gunmen around and so on and I thought, 'No, no these are more kidnappers', but then I saw [BBC reporter] Fayed Abu Shammala who I'd worked with for three years and the most fantastic moment, and I really only then, only then believed it was over."

Great news and great victory for Hamas

really good thing to hear

I'm waiting for the SYRIAN GOVT to say that they had a hand in releasing the hostage..
