After being held for more than 5 years by Hamas, Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit was released in exchange for more than 1000 Palestinian prisoners. This is the actual interview with Gilad Shalit on Egyptian television on the day of the prisoner exchange deal.

Islamic Thugs Exchanged for one Righteous Man


Gilad Shalit

Israel and Islamic terrorist organization Hamas have worked out a deal in kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit will be exchanged for about a thousand of murdering Islamic thugs in Israeli prisons. Frankly I cannot see this as a fair exchange because it will open wounds of injustice to the victims – dead and alive – as well as to the families of the victims.

 

On the other hand there is a huge injustice that Gilad Shalit has languished in the clutches of Islamic terrorists of Hamas. Since Israel has chosen the path of the waiting game for Shalit rather than sending in commandos for a search, rescue and destroy method, I do feel for Shalit as well. I understand that a commando raid would be a certain violent death for Shalit.

 

On the other hand there would be no dishonor in the exchange followed by a commando invasion to punish the released prisoners quite soon after their release. That punishment would by necessity have to be rapid because of the nature of Islamic terrorists disappearing like cockroaches into dark holes to hide like cowards rather than face the justice the light would expose them to.

 

In writing my thought on the Shalit/Islamic-thug transfer an email was sent representing parents of a victim of one of those thugs scheduled to be released. Pay attention and sign the petition to help in preventing some of these thugs from finding the freedom of daylight as if their thuggery was validated.

Remove Ahlam Tamimi from ‘freedom list’

REQUEST FROM ARNOLD AND FRIMET ROTH

Please pass this heartfelt request along urgently to your contacts, in particular the good people at ICJS. It’s a request to sign a petition that we created in the last few hours, online here:

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/remove-ahlam-tamimi-from-the-list-of-terrorists-to-be-f.html

Under normal circumstances, requests to sign a petition are unlikely to lead to any significant outcomes. In this case, we are hoping to do something important.

The petition asks for the removal of one specific name from the list of more than one thousand terrorists, including hundreds of convicted murderers, to be published by the government of Israel tomorrow, Sunday. That list is the basis of a transaction by which Israel will get back Gilad Shalit, held hostage by the terrorists of Hamas for more than five years. The deal involves Israel throwing open the gates of its top-security prisons and issuing wholesale pardons. My wife Frimet and I have expressed our principled objection to the deal. While others are busy trying to stop it in the courts, we are focusing our energies on one specific person, and getting her off the list.

Her name is Tamimi. An article in today’s New York Times [http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/15/world/middleeast/israel-prisoner-swap-touches-old-wounds.html] provides some background:

 

Among those is Ahlam Tamimi, a 31-year-old woman who was a key figure in the pizzeria attack. She is often described as the driver of the car that brought the suicide bomber to the Sbarro restaurant and killed 15 people. But the Roths say her role went far beyond that, to the actual planning of the attack. In interviews from prison, Ms. Tamimi, who was a journalist, has told of having brought the suicide bomber to Jerusalem and then going on Palestinian television’s afternoon broadcast to announce the news of the attack without acknowledging her involvement. “I’m not sorry for what I did,” she told an Israeli news organization in 2006. “I will get out of prison, and I refuse to recognize Israel’s existence. Discussions will only take place after Israel recognizes that this is Islamic land.”

 

Ahlam Tamimi - Islamic Terrorist

 

The Roths said their anger over the prisoner exchange was focused on Ms. Tamimi, who is being sent to Jordan. She is young, fervent and charismatic, Mr. Roth said, and proud of what she did. In a documentary on Palestinian prisoners, she was asked whether she knew how many children had been killed in the attack. She did not. When told the number was eight, she smiled.

 

There is a fuller background about the circumstances in which our daughter was murdered on the Keren Malki website: http://www.kerenmalki.org/Sbarro_Massacre.htm

And there are many articles on the web tonight showing her family and supporters celebrating her impending return to freedom and to a full and active life as a heroine and inspiration.

Time is very limited. We really only have until Sunday (16th October) to get a significant number of signatures. If we succeed, we can then put pressure on the Prime Minister’s Office and the Justice Ministry and publicize this in the media.

Even if you do not normally sign petitions, or pass them along to friends, we ask you to seriously consider signing this one. Once again, it’s online here:

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/remove-ahlam-tamimi-from-the-list-of-terrorists-to-be-f.html

Finally, allow me to mention that Keren Malki, the non-sectarian not-for-profit we created in our daughter’s memory in 2001, does very good work in our murdered daughter’s name for the benefit of families raising a special-needs child. Your support for that work will be much appreciated. More at www.kerenmalki.org

Thank you for reading this far. Together with our friends and their friends, we hope – despite the odds – to do something constructive in the face of the terrible transaction being done with the terrorists of Hamas.

Good wishes, Moadim Lesimcha, and Shavua Tov,
Arnold Roth

The Nefarious Anniversary of Gilad Shalit

Roughly five years ago from today (depending where you were vis-a-vis the International Date Line) Gilad Shalit was kidnapped from within Israel and dragged back to Gaza (Gazastan or Hamastan) to be held as a captive to be used as an exchange for over one thousand convicted Islamic terrorists in Israeli jails.

 

Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA is recognized agent of so-called Palestinian independence) signed a unity agreement to stand together as Arabs that call themselves Palestinians to form an independent Palestine being forced down the Israeli throat by powerful Western governments and Russia. To the Western world the PA has gone on the record to recognize the existence of the nation Israel, BUT not of a Jewish State. On the other hand the Palestinian media calls for the death of all Jews and the utter destruction of Israel to form an Arab State devoid of Jews from their homeland. Hamas is less subtle. Hamas simply calls for the destruction of all Jews and the destruction of Israel openly for all to read, hear and see.

 

Hamas’ kidnapping of Shalit has placed Israel in the unenviable position of a decision: the release of a thousand plus convicted Islamic terrorists so Hamas will release Shalit or doom Shalit to a fate of being in the hands of Jew-Hating Muslims to keep war criminals in jail.

 

It is horrible but I cannot see Israel releasing Jew-haters to join the Palestinian cause to kill more Jews for the release of one Israeli Patriot. I know there have been earlier attempts to rescue Shalit, so it is quite amazing Hamas has kept him alive. In fact no official footage or contact has been allowed by Hamas of Gilad Shalit since roughly September 2009:

 

 

Indeed Hamas has taken to taunting the Israeli government with short videos glorifying the capture kidnapping of Gilad Shalit:

 

 

In the above YouTube video it shows two Hamas terrorists in the shadows making intimidating gestures of the freeze frame still of Shalit from the 2009 YouTube video. As the 24 second Islamic terrorist intimidation video comes to an end  computer symbolism showing the near completion of a download which when fully completed has some Arabic words fill the area followed shortly by the sound of gun fire including sounds of the rounds hit the ground.

 

Hamas pulls all this junk with nary a bit of pressure from the same Western powers forcing into existence a Jew-hating Palestine except to only verbally condemn Hamas. Hamas has become the master of playing on Western sympathies to keep the pressure off them by playing the victim to the West.

 

 

If the so-called Quartet is so willing to force the existence of a Palestinian State, then this Quartet should be willing to force the release of Gilad Shalit. Force should happen even if it means violence to as a show of support for Gilad Shalit. If the Quartet holds Hamas accountable and Hamas resists the power of the Quartet by murdering Shalit, then the Quartet should have enough balls to admit that a Hamas involvement in a Palestinian State/Government is impossible.

 

If a Hamas involvement in governing is impossible, then a joint Quartet and Israel Defense Force (IDF) overthrow of Hamas in Gaza should happen. With a combination of Quartet military forces (i.e. USA, EU, Russia & UN) involved then the staged murder scenes usually blamed on Israel or the death of Hamas human shields will carry less weight as it will be exposed just how evil an entity an Islamic terrorist organization like Hamas actually is.

 

The infrastructure that keeps services running in Gaza does not come from revenue picked up through fair taxation. Rather Gaza’s operating infrastructure is operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). The UNRWA provides above $400 million in an annual budget for Arab-Palestinians in Gaza and Judea-Samaria. In an article by Claudia Rosett written in 2009 for Forbes a very good appraisal is made about Gaza; viz., that Gaza-Hamas has two components that are currently vital for administration: UNRWA and terrorism.

 

The West already condemns terrorism although the condemnation comes with a wink when it comes to Arab terrorists with the appellation of Palestinian. If the Quartet were serious about bringing peace to the Middle East it would be incumbent to take down the UNRWA followed closely by the removal of Hamas in Gaza before the Muslim Brotherhood completely runs the show in Egypt. If or when the Muslim Brotherhood controls Egypt it will be a missed opportunity to remove Hamas from any governing equation.

 

Now don’t get me wrong. I am not a fan of the terrorists that make up the PA. Basically the PA is the globally recognized entity of Arabs that call themselves Palestinians; however the reality is the PA is made up out of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) which is an old Arab League umbrella group creation to be a thorn in the side of Israel. The biggest dog in the PLO umbrella is Fatah. The Fatah chief has served as the Chairman for the PLO and as the President of the PA.

 

Hamas is not part of the PLO umbrella. Hamas is more closely related to the Muslim Brotherhood centered in Egypt which ironically seems to be the foundation of Fatah’s original leadership. The point is though the PA has become just as corrupt as it is for the creation of a Palestinian. The corruption can be seen with all the times that the deceased Yasser Arafat refused Israel deals to establish a Palestinian State in their land of Judea and Samaria (called the West Bank by everyone that supports an idea of a Palestinian State). Because of PA corruption the Quartet and Israel can manipulate a better deal if it is a foregone conclusion to stupidly create a sovereign Palestine.

 

Frankly a PA led Palestine will probably end in a blood bath between Israel and Palestine coupled with a WWIII scenario. The existence of Hamas will make that scenario occur quicker.

 

A campaign to end Hamas for the release of Gilad Shalit should be the concerted effort of the Quartet, Israel and probably with a little money to flash – the PA. Yes, without a miracle Shalit will probably be murdered. If indeed Hamas perpetuates such a tragedy of outright murder even the face of global opposition to such an act, the determination to end Hamas will be of greater acceptance. Sealing that deal of global opposition to Hamas will be the PA to join such an anti-Hamas league. The PA would do such a deed for money to its leadership AND because the Fatah faction of the PLO-PA has some good old fashioned Arab blood revenge issues with Hamas.

 

Unfortunately if an actual Hamas-PA united stand actually happens I am fairly convinced the corrupt leadership of the PLO-PA faction will dissipate into nothingness. Hamas pushing the old guard out may actually delay the creation of a Palestinian State. However, we all know that once Hamas becomes the legitimate representation of the Arabs that call themselves Palestinians Western acceptance will eventually follow. In those days the kidnapping of one Israeli soldier will turn into the kidnapping of multiple soldiers which will probably lead to surgical strikes of the murder of multiples of Jews in rural towns and Orthodox Jewish villages.

 

Free Gilad Shalit now! Let’s make a united effort to end Hamas to prevent future Gilad Shalits.
