The media has a new scapegoat on which to pin Palestinian atrocities: the so-called “Popular Resistance Committees,” a thinly disguised Hamas front group that is claiming to have kidnapped another Israeli in the West Bank: Israeli soldier held in a ‘secure place’.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - A Palestinian militant leader said Tuesday a captured Israeli soldier was being held in a “secure place,” and he claimed that his group also seized a Jewish settler in the West Bank.
The new claims came from the Popular Resistance Committees, a violent group with close ties to the Hamas-led Palestinian government. The PRC was one of three groups that participated in Sunday’s cross-border infiltration near Gaza in which militants killed two Israeli soldiers and abducted Cpl. Gilad Shalit.
“The soldier is in a secure place that the Zionists cannot reach,” PRC spokesman Mohammed Abdel Al said in the first acknowledgment by militants that Shalit was still alive.
The kidnappers have not said where Shalit is being held or released any photographs of the 19-year-old soldier.
Abdel Al also said his group had taken a Jewish settler in the West Bank hostage. Israel Radio reported the settler had been hitchhiking Monday night and failed to return home.
Meanwhile, Al-Reuters shills for Hamas leaders: Hamas says Israel threat on exiled leaders serious.
DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Exiled Hamas leaders are taking seriously Israeli threats to kill them although they were not involved in a Palestinian operation that captured an Israeli soldier, a Hamas leader in Syria said on Tuesday.
“We consider the threat serious but it does not scare us,” Mohammad Nazzal, a member of the movement’s exiled leadership, told Reuters.
“ Israel is trying to export its crisis by linking Hamas leadership in exile, especially Khaled Meshaal, to the operation … the outside leadership of Hamas had nothing to do with it,” Nazzal said.
And Associated Press continues hyping the bogus “prisoner’s document,” even as Palestinians continue murdering and kidnapping and firing rockets into Israel: Hamas-Fatah to implicitly recognize Israel.
This document does not “implicitly recognize Israel.” This is another Palestinian Big Lie, aided and abetted by a corrupt media dominated by Palestinian propagandists.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - The rival Hamas and Fatah movements agreed on a plan implicitly recognizing Israel, a top Palestinian official said Tuesday after weeks of acrimonious negotiations aiming to lift crippling international aid sanctions.
Moderate President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah has been trying to coax his Hamas rivals into endorsing the document, which calls for a Palestinian state alongside Israel, in effect recognizing the Jewish state. He has endorsed the plan as a way to end sanctions against the Hamas-led Palestinian government and pave the way to reopening peace talks with Israel.
“We have an agreement over the document,” said Ibrahim Abu Najah, coordinator of the “national dialogue” over the proposal.
