Saša Petricic speaks to a Canadian-Israeli Soldier


Download Flash Player to view this content.

The sidewalk outside the Israeli Prime Minister's residence is packed... cameras, reporters, friends and family of Gilad Shalit - and more than a few other Israelis inspired by the news of his impending homecoming.

It's been more than five years since Shalit was captured by Palestinian militants and dragged into Gaza. And for much of that time, this corner of Jerusalem has been the centre of a movement to pressure the Israeli government to negotiate his release.

Now, success.

Within days, the 25 year-old corporal is to be exchanged for 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in Israel's jails. The crowd here is jubilant. The passing cars noisy with their honking.

 And walking through the middle of it - a bag of groceries in one hand, his automatic rifle over one shoulder - Jay Goldberg. He's another young soldier, walking home on a day of leave from the army. He's defending Israel, but he carries a Canadian passport. Goldberg was born in Toronto, graduated from the University of Waterloo.

 I ask him, what's on his mind?

 Gilad Shalit.
