Shalit opens Facebook page
Former captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit reportedly has opened a Facebook page. The Facebook page is not open to other social media users, according to reports. He reportedly only has a few Facebook friends, including his sister and some close friends.
His profile picture is slightly blurry.
Facebook was not in wide use when Shalit was abducted more than 5 years ago.
Meanwhile, Arab-Israeli lawmaker Ahmed Tibi said he has been receiving death threats on his Facebook wall. Tibi has filed a complaint with Knesset security. The comments included “You’ll be dead soon” and “your end is near.”
The threats come after Tibi delivered a speech in Knesset last week, criticizing fellow lawmaker Anastasia Michaeli for dumping water on Ghaleb Majadle.
