Gaza Truce Collapses. Israeli Soldier Seized!

I was saddened, but not surprised to read that the 72 hour truce broke down, however I was shocked to read that an Israeli soldier has been seized. One hopes and prays he is released and quickly!
The situation in Gaza is, to put it mildly, of increasing concern. The use of tunnels by militants, Hamas's violent opposition to Israel's existence to name but a few, but equally the recent shelling of a school by Israeli troops, in spite of UN warnings, to name but a few, means that both sides need to be urged to halt the conflict and respect each others existence and rights!
That's the theory, the practice (especially given the desire of extremists to want victory or prolonged violence) is somewhat different
