Mother of Kidnapped Soldier

This photograph of the mother of the kidnapped IDF soldier Omar Savaeid was taken in front of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in 2002. At the time, it was assumed that the three soldiers kidnapped then, were still alive.The protest was carried out in order to pressure the Israeli government to act more forcefully in order to obtain the release or information about the soldiers which were kidnapped by the Hezbollah in Lebanon.Today, when I think of this photograph, I cannot stop thinking about Karnit - my cousin's daughter whose husband Udi is one of the kidnapped soldiers in Lebanon now. Posted by Picasa
