Shameful Hamas: No Honor Here

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                 

Hamas now has access to Judea-Samaria being the USA and the EU recognized them as a state and they had already united as one government.  It's only taken one week and they have kidnapped 3 Israeli Jewish teenagers who attend a Yeshiva there, two 16 year olds of which one has dual citizenship with USA and Israel, and a 19 year old.  They are Gilad Shaar, 16, Naftali Frenkel 16, and Eyal Yifrach 19.  They were waiting for a ride home at night after their last class in a Yeshiva.   Israel's police and military are searching for them and the whole nation is praying for their safety.  Gilad Shalit was held by this group for over 5 years and it took the trade of 1,027 terrorists in Israel's prisons to free this one person.

""Suddenly, Hamas' cruel acts of terrorism were forgotten, their never-ending attempts to harm innocent civilians, along with the Hamas Charter, which calls for the total destruction of the state of Israel." Now, he (Netanyahu) wrote, "the international community has been given a second chance to correct its moral, diplomatic and strategic mistakes. Wall to wall condemnations of the kidnapping are called for, as well as placing responsibility on the Palestinian government, including the threat of taking physical, economic and diplomatic steps against it."
While we moan and groan over the recent episode of releasing of 5 from the USA prison for one American soldier who was breaking rules by being out of his assigned area at the time of kidnapping, we wonder about a "trade of 1,027 prisoners  for our young Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit,  who was released October 18, 2011– after being held for 5 years and 4 months, releasing mainly Palestinians and Arab-Israelis, though among the prisoners released there was also a Ukrainian prisoner, a Jordanian prisoner, and a Syrian prisoner."    For this country, to save a life is of utmost importance in their value system.  They are not people who want to take lives.  Perhaps it was time to release these particular 1,027 anyway.

 Remember, Israel does not shoot and kill anyone when captured.  They are imprisoned.  In this they differ completely from their neighbors.  Collectively, these 1027 were responsible for the murders of 569 Israelis by terrorism.  

What was bad was being forced to release  104 extreme terrorists in order to keep Fatah talking at the peace table by Kerry.  At the time, Israel had nothing but horrible murderous terrorists with a list of evil killings that they were forced to release.  In the end, Netanyahu kept back the 4th group of 26 and did not release them due to the way the peace was progressing.   I don't think Israel's government will ever do such a thing again.  We can now see the outcome of such moves.

All  day "Friday celebrations were held in Gaza and other Palestinian Authority cities. Video footage showed residents waving Hamas and PLO flags and distributing sweets, as jubilant music could be heard in the background."  This was done after finding out about the kidnappings of the 3 Jewish boys.

 The  Palestinians did the same thing when they heard about the Twin Towers falling in New York and all the deaths.  "A group of Palestinians were filmed celebrating in the street in celebration of the attacks on the World Trade Center and the deaths of Americans. Fox News reported that in Ein el-Hilweh, Lebanon's largest Palestinian refugee camp, revelers fired weapons in the air, with similar celebratory gunfire heard at the Rashidiyeh camp near the southern city of Tyre as well." 

Update: 9:38 am 6/15/14    Just found on Fatah's Facebook page:  Thanks USA and EU for rewarding Israel with such a nice neighbor.  You're just as much to blame for this as Abbas is.
