Family of Captured Israeli Soldier Opposes Lebanon War
Meanwhile, the family of one of the two captured Israeli soldiers in Lebanon has come out against the war. At a press conference in Paris, Malka Goldwasser, the mother of captured soldier Ehud Goldwasser, appealed for peace.
* Malka Goldwasser: "I am a mother, and as a mother, I don't want war. I have three sons, I want to have my three sons at home, I want to be able to raise them, I want to have grandchildren - I simply want to have a normal life. I say no to war, and I am certain that there are many Lebanese who think the same thing. The question needs to be asked of someone else - all I am, is a mother and I don't want war."
