If there’s one person who can claim much of the credit for Gilat Schalit’s release it’s Gershon Baskin.
He was the first Isaeli to make contact with Hamas, only days after Gilad Schalit was abducted more than five years ago.
His tireless work ever since has led to the release of Gilad Schalit and close to 500 Palestinian prisoners overnight.
Respected radio presenter, current affairs journalist and political correspondent, Fran Kelly hosts Gershon on the agenda-setting program RN Breakfast.
