“I believe the resistance (fighters) should not be content with taking one Israeli soldier as a prisoner,” Osama Hamdan, Hamas’ representative in Lebanon,
who is close to Hamas’ political bureau chief Khaled Mashaal, told Al-Manar television in Beirut.
Mashaal’s deputy, Moussa Abu Marzouk, told AP in Damascus, “This soldier is a prisoner of war.”
This is an opportunity if ever their was one for Israel to declare all-out war, and deal with the Palestinians accordingly.
If they want to play terrorist state, then fine, let’s treat them like a terrorist state.
No one on their side is even pretending to speak out against this, which makes them all responsible.
I think it’s time for the Israelis to start sending Hamasnicks to meet their seventy-two virgins.
This is exactly what the opponents of the expulsion warned against before it happened last year.
I also believe the international community needs to keep its collective mouth shut and let Israel deal with the terrorist problem that has ballooned in her back yard due to the insistance of said community that if only Israel would leave Gaza, then things would get better, and the Palestinians could practice their right to self-determination.
As far as I’m concerned, they’ve “determined” loud and clear that they’re all for terrorism, and that they want to stay at war.
Well, so be it.
Israel just needs to make sure they fight like they should, and do a thorough job.
