According to Haaretz and the Associated Press, "French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Sunday that he understood that the two Israel Defense Forces soldiers kidnapped by Hezbollah last year were alive and that negotiations for their release were being conducted via the United Nations. "

It's a year since Ehud Goldwasser, Eldad Regev and Gilad Shalit were kidnapped by Hezbollah and Hamas terrorists. There is a rally scheduled for tomorrow (July 16) calling for their release. There should be rallies in every capital in the civilized world, calling for their immediate and unconditional release.

No negotiations. Just their unconditional release. Negotiations only whet the appetite of terrorists and ultimately encourage them to murder and kidnap more people.

Meanwhile, the French have hosted "Hezbollah representatives," in the context of dealing with the government crisis in Lebanon, and supposedly are raising the issue of the abducted Israelis.

Rather than hosting Hezbollah representatives, the French, along with the rest of the civilized world, should be shunning Hezbollah and arresting anyone from Hezbollah that tries to enter.
