Palestinian Terrorist Group Taunts Israel Over Kidnapped SoldierTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Abu Mujahed, a spokesman for the PRC (a Palestinian terrorist network which operates in the Gaza Strip), which is involved in the kidnapping of Cpl. Gilad Shalit - is taunting Israel by saying the soldier could be dead or alive. This, in spite of the fact that Israel has said military operations that began with a push into the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday would go on if Shalit was not freed.
The spokesman did not say who was holding Shalit after Sunday's raid by three militant factions an army post near the Gaza border. He set out three scenarios.Perhaps the Israelis should fire back to Abu Mujahed with three scenarios of their own:
"Possibility one: the missing soldier, for one reason or another, is dead and maybe there is a morgue available for his body or maybe there is not," Abu Mujahed said at a news conference.
"Possibility two is the soldier is still alive but is suffering a serious injury. Medication might be available or might not be available .... Possibility three is that he is fine but that a long time will pass (before he is released)."
Not very politically correct, but effective nonetheless.
- Cpl. Gilad Shalit is immediately released, and Israel will leave Gaza after it kills both exiled Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Abu Mujahed, and all of other the terrorists in Gaza.
- If Cpl. Gilad Shalit is killed, Israel will leave after it kills both exiled Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal, Abu Mujahed, and all of the other terrorists in Gaza.
- Alternatively, Israel will leave Gaza only after turning it into the world's largest dusty field with a hole in it. Medication might be available for the injured, and it might not be available. And by the way, you're advised to kepp a lookout overhead!
