Celebrations were already in full swing last April:
Hamas militants painted murals of abducted Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit and missing Israel Air Force navigator Ron Arad Wednesday night in the Jabalyah refugee camp in the Gaza Strip. The graffiti portrays Shalit as he looks in 2009 next to a mock-up of how the soldier will look after another 30 years in captivity, his hair grey and his face beset by wrinkles… During a rally held four months ago to mark the 21st anniversary of the founding of Hamas, the Islamic group performed a skit where an operative dressed in an IDF uniform mimicked Shalit, portraying the soldier complaining in Hebrew about how he “misses mommy and daddy.”
That rally, which had all the feel of a primitive tribe marching into battle with the heads of prisoners on stakes, happened just a few weeks before Operation Cast Lead. The subsequent ceasefire was called prematurely so as not to disturb The One’s ascension, with Shalit still in Palestinian hands. Negotiations to free him over the next few months broke down because of Hamas:
The Saudi newspaper Al-Watan reported on Tuesday that Turkey has ceased trying to broker a deal for the release of abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit due to excessive Hamas demands, Israel Radio said. The newspaper based the report on comments by diplomatic sources. The sources were also quoted as saying that Israel’s “weakness” and lack of support for its efforts had led Turkey to pull out of the negotiations. They said Hamas’ excessive demands had also triggered Turkey’s decision to pull out of the negotiations, Al-Watan reported.
Bringing us to this filthbag:
As Israel prepares to mark the three-year anniversary of the kidnapping of IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, Ynet has learned that in Gaza the date will mark the wedding of Popular Resistance Committees (PRC) spokesman Abu Mujahid. The PRC is one of the organizations responsible for Shalit’s capture, and Abu Mujahid told Ynet he had chosen to marry on its anniversary. He said he wanted his first day as a married man to be “as blessed as the day in which the kidnapping was carried out, when Allah saw our success and victory”.
Abu Mujahid said the capture was a historic day for the Palestinian people. “I wanted my wedding day to be joyous and mark the third anniversary of the operation’s success and victory,” he said.
Linking a wedding to the kidnapping and psychological torture of teenagers – these are definitely a group of people ready to lead a state.
