(IsraelNN.com) Bedouin Sheikh Salam Hozeil of Rahat is in the middle of a campaign to bring attention to the plight of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was taken captive by Gaza terrorists three years ago. Hozeil’s latest stops, in Beit Kama and Be’er Sheva, have been plagued by threats and violence, but he is determined to continue.

The sheikh has traveled to Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to set up his tent, encourage passersby to remember Shalit, and gather signatures on a petition calling for the young soldier’s release.

The story of Hozeil’s involvement in Shalit’s cause began one year ago, when he took part in a rally for Shalit in Jerusalem. “I decided that the story is tragic, and I must take part in the rally to show my solidarity,” he explains.

It seems that every couple of weeks the controvery over Obama’s birth certificate (any by extension his legitimacy as President) rears it’s ugly head. For the record, I believe that he was born in the U.S. and is a natural born U.S. citizen. Those who claim a Certificate of Live Birth is not a Birth Certificate hold no water with me because I was born in Maryland and have a Certificate of Live Birth. My college roommate was from Ohio, and he told me that they have the same thing up there. But just today the conspiracy went mainstream.
