While no one has been permitted to see Shalit since he was taken hostage by Hamas in a June 2006 cross-border attack in Kerem Shalom in southern Israel, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak during a meeting in Cairo on Tuesday with President Shimon Peres announced to the media that he believes that Shalit is alive and well and his ordeal will come to an end in the near future.
