Biggest Zionist cover-up since 9/11

An Israeli author is suing the family of a soldier being held by Islamic militants in the Gaza Strip, claiming he plagiarised one of her books.

Shelly Elkayam is seeking royalties earned from the sales of When the Shark and the Fish First Met, a story written by Israeli Cpl Gilad Shalit when he was 11 years old and published after his capture four years ago.

“The story that Shalit wrote was written by me,” Ms Elkayam told Israeli army radio. “I have been a literary hostage of the Shalit family for four years.”

Shalit was captured in a cross-border raid by three Islamic groups, including Hamas, in June 2006 and spirited into the Gaza Strip, the tiny coastal territory controlled by Hamas.

His schoolteacher unearthed Cpl Shalit’s childhood story after his capture, and it has since been printed in 17 editions and several different languages. Cpl Shalit’s family have acknowledged that the story was inspired by Elkayam, but claim there are key differences in the text.

Elkayam, however, claims there were only “superficial changes” from her own book When the Snake and the Mouse First Met.

“They continue to steal my book rights, which was a best-seller from the time it was published up until they published Gilad’s book,” Ms Elkayam said. “Just like it’s his right to be free, it’s my right that my rights will be protected.” More
