Noam Shalit doubts Hamas claims that Gilad wasn't tortured in captivity
Noam Shalit, father of recently released Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit, said on Thursday that claims his son was not tortured during his time in Hamas captivity should be taken "with a grain of salt."

"Gilad went through harsh things, at least in the first period (of his captivity). It is correct that after that, after that first period, the way he was treated improved," the older Shalit said at a press conference. Gilad Shalit was freed on Tuesday after over five years in Hamas captivity in exchange for over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.

Earlier Thursday, the newspaper Al-Hayat reported that Zuhair Al-Qaisi, leader of the Popular Resistance Committees, the organization that captured Gilad, said the IDF soldier was not subject to any emotional or physical torture during his period in custody.

"He had access to radio and television. We took care of him, his physical and mental health. He was not given over to any emotional or physical torture. He was lightly injured in the course of his capture, and he received the necessary medical care and completely healed," said Al-Qaisi.

2. A terrorist organization abducts Gilad Shalit and denies Red Cross access to him
Clearly, Hamas' denial of the Red Cross' repeated requests to observe Gilad Shalit's treatment demonstrate that Hamas had something to hide. If anyone thinks that Hamas treated an Israeli humanely, they are clearly a self-deluded fool.
