Skip to comments.Intentional misrepresentation of facts MSM? ( Gilad Shalit )
Posted on 10/18/2011 8:25:15 AM PDT by ventanax5
As I watch the unfolding of the Shalit exchange across multiple television news channels, including Israeli, France, CNN, BBC and UK I find the most of the reporting disconcerting. Why? The reporters are either ill informed, intentional in distorting the truth or truly ignorant. There is no other possibility. Let me clarify a point repeatedly, across almost all of these news stations regarding Shalits abduction. He was taken on 25 June 2006 by Hamas terrorist from Gaza in a cross-border raid. A Hamas terrorist group attacked a Merkava Tank Mark 3, which was guarding the security fence and an army post, both in Israeli territory. During the attack, the commander and a fellow tank member were killed. Shalit was abducted near the Kerem Shalom crossing as and was dragged under the security fence into parts unknown in Gaza. This is a critical point, Hamas terrorists illegally entered Israel and kidnapped Gilad. He was not engaged in a battle or a war and was not ever granted POW status. Why? Simple, he was kidnapped.

Does the Muslims population realize the implication that one Israeli is worth a thousand Palestinian Terrorist?
What is your analysis of the deal overall? I’m glad they finally got Shalit back, but that’s a lot of terrorists on the loose in exchange. Is there a likelihood that at least the worst ones will subsequently be targeted?
I’m happy for Shalit’s family, they did what most parents would do for their children. Objectively this is a horrible deal that should not have happened. The blame should go to the Gov and not the Shalit family.
Hopefully Mossad implanted homing chips on these muzzie terrorists for future operations.
For the saving of Gilad’s life in exchange for 1027 Muzzie terrorists there will be a new wave of terrorism that will take the lives of many other Israelis. This has happened every time Israel has played the Let’s Make A Deal game with these murderous vermin.
“For the saving of Gilads life in exchange for 1027 Muzzie terrorists”
Hussein is VERY pleased.
Thanks to you both for weighing in. It helped me to understand the situation better. It sounds like the long term fallout could be very destructive. Still, when a person such as me [softhearted] sees Shalit free at last, it’s hard to regret it. Future victims of Hamas terrorism won’t have the same luxury, sad to say.
“Hopefully Mossad implanted homing chips on these muzzie terrorists for future operations.”
And, undoubtedly, no small number of these guys cracked and is now a double-agent.
I think we will see less bombings and similar terror ops because the border walls the Israelis have put up in recent years have put the kibosh on quite a bit of it, but one way another the Muzzies will go right back to doing what they did before.
Well I pray there are fewer bombings, but your analysis is correct. The last thing Hamas et al want is peace. The very last thing. They exist only to attack Israel [and embezzle foreign aid, as a secondary task], and that is only the interim plan. We both know the desired end game. May it never come to pass.
I just read an email, which meant a lot to me. You’ve probably already seen it. I decided to cut and paste it anyway, in case someone who hasn’t read it is perusing the thread:
Your children will return to their own land. (Jeremiah 31:17)
It is a joyous day in Israel. After being held captive for five years by Hamas terrorists, kidnapped Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit was returned home today.
His freedom came at a very high cost. Israel agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners to secure liberty for Gilad.
As Israel celebrates the return of one young man kidnapped while serving his country, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza gathered to celebrate the return of their prisoners, many of whom are terrorists with the blood of innocent Israelis on their hands.
Today, we Israelis give thanks to God for Gilads return. And we also give thanks that we live in a country that is willing to make painful sacrifices to save one human life rather than a society that celebrates those who deal in death.
