Before Gilad Shalit was turned over to Israel, he was forced to do an interview Egyptian reporter, Shahira Amin. There isn’t a transcript, but YnetNews says Shalit was asked about his “medical condition,” to which he replied “I don’t feel so well from the whole affair.” The question asked in English and answered in Hebrew by Gilad, was translated back into Arabic as “I feel good.”
Ynet reports that Gilad was forced to do the interview with Amin. She said she did not know he was forced into it. The publication characterized the questions as “insensitive,” and “crude.”
Amin’s crude interview with Shalit Tuesday morning featured heavy pro-Egyptian and pro-Palestinian propaganda. Through the interview, the anchorwoman attempted to prompt Shalit to praise Egypt for its role in arranging the prisoner exchange…
…it appeared that Amin was virtually abusing Shalit, moments after he was brought to Egypt from Gaza.
Shalit was having trouble breathing during the interview and looked exhausted and confused, yet Amin kept on presenting him with questions, many of them absurd and ridiculous.
See a video here of the interview. Maybe you can get it to work. I cannot. The instructions are in Hebrew (I think). G-d bless Gilad and his family. May they finally have some measure of peace, may he regain his strength and mental health, and may Hamas rockets not have the ability to reach the Shalit home.
