JERUSALEM (AP) Israeli officials harshly criticized an Egyptian television interview with soldier Gilad Schalit minutes after Hamas militants freed him in a prisoner swap Tuesday, saying the questioning was inappropriate and insensitive.
In the interview aired on Egyptian state television, a gaunt, sallow and uncomfortable looking Schalit appeared to struggle to speak at times, and his breathing was noticeably labored as he awkwardly answered questions. The footage, along with earlier Egyptian TV video showing Schalit being transferred to Egypt, were the first images seen of the soldier after more than five years in Hamas captivity.
Armed Hamas militants were in the area during the interview. One of them stood behind Schalit's chair, wearing a a black face mask, a green headband of the Qassam brigades Hamas' military wing and a video camera in his hand.

“Israeli officials harshly criticized an Egyptian television interview with soldier Gilad Schalit minutes after Hamas militants freed him...”
It was a mauling...and he WASN’T ‘free’ yet....obviously.
DAMN every one of them!
Lets keep in mind how lucky we are the fellow is still alive. Thank God Islam encourages kidnapping for profit.
“....saying the questioning was inappropriate and insensitive.”
WTF. How long has Israel been in a fight with the muzzies?
After all this time, do they still expect sensitivity from these people?
They resemble Americans.
It was outrageous
That animal in the mask is DMW. I would not be suprised if Israel takes him out before Shabat.
Therein lies the problem.
He looks awful. Where is the outrage? I bet those terrorist Israel just released looked just fine, getting 3 meals a day full medical. Just horrendous.
So, where are Amnesty International, the Red Cross, the UN and the other usual suspects???
Why is Israel shocked at anything the Arabs do?
War crimes laws only apply to those who try to adhere to them. You see, the purpose of a war crime law is the same as drawing a line in the sand. If one side crosses the line, the other side is justified in action... only thing is now-a-days, the one trying to abide by the laws are always painted as the aggressors, and the “offended” never need to quote a law to justify their actions, al they need is to claim occupation by their enemy.
Israel exchanged 1000 prisoners for this soldier? I’m just surprised they deal with terrorists like this.....we wouldn’t do this...right?
DMW? Sorry, but I don't know that abbreviation.
Schalit is skin and bones in that photo with Bibi. I hope Israel takes them all out....
Don’t do it, Gary...Harriet’s a tramp!
DMW = Dead Man Walking
Let’s hope he is.
Sorry..”DMW” = Dead Man Walking
Remind you of anything? It did me, when I saw him on the news tonight. I just can't believe what goes on. 1027 to one! It's quite a statement. How long can things bubble along like this?
It is so beyond wrong to allow/force an interview in a situation like this , especially when his captor is standing behind him with his hands near his neck .
The Egyptians should be totally ashamed of themselves.
