Reward for the Next Kidnapped Israeli Soldier

Pages: 1 2

In the aftermath of the Gilad Shalit deal, in which last week Israel freed 477 security prisoners (to be followed by 550 more) for its kidnapped soldier, a prominent Saudi has called for more kidnappings.

Ynet describes Awad al-Qarni as “a famous Muslim cleric who often guests on TV shows and operates his own website.” He’s also a standard anti-Semite; asked in 2006 to explain the U.S. invasion of Iraq, he pointed to the “Jews in the American administration—I mean the Likud Jews, the extreme right wing over there…. Some of the top American officials have Israeli citizenship. Some of them were top officials in Israel….”

Al-Qarni is offering $100,000 to any Palestinian who kidnaps another Israeli soldier. He says he’s doing so in response to an ad by an Israeli family offering a similar sum for anyone who catches a terrorist who murdered their relative in 1998.

While Western minds might note a moral asymmetry between having a murderer and an ordinary soldier as the target, Al-Qarni’s Facebook post on the matter had already “received more than 1,000 likes and extensive coverage in Hamas-affiliated newspapers in Gaza.”

Al-Qarni’s offer is part of a wave of enthusiasm for the release of so many murderers in the Shalit deal. Ahmad Jabari, head of Hamas’s military wing, said Hamas would “continue to abduct Israeli soldiers and officers as long as there are Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails.” Hamas TV proclaims that abducting six more soldiers is all that’s needed. A spate of maverick, spontaneous terror attacks on the West Bank may also be connected to the triumphant mood.

    If Israel had no prisoners, there would be no talk of an exchange. If Israel took no prisoners, there couldn't be any talk of an exchange. Hamas has raised the ante. Israel is better served to see the enemy for what it is. It ultimately chooses to take no prisoners and to annihilate Israel. Preemptive action is required even if not desired. IT is obvious Israel would rather live in peace. The choice was taken from them long ago. Your enemy will not negotiate for a dead terrorist. "If it be Allah's will" spoken from a graveside in Gaza should be the closest they get to a future exchange.

    The remedy for all of this kidnaping situation lies in the fact of always "NEGOTIATING"

    However, if the Israeli governments having "cojones" (which they don't) would have
    given HAMAS 24 hours to return SHALIT sane and safe or else it would start bombing GAZA to hell, you woud have seen immediate action…
    Rest assured that, contrary to the fatalism their leaders inculcate into the morons they
    turn into suicide bombers, they value very highly their own skins

    Israel is under the international gun. During the last major conflict the French sent a warship with the an ouced intention of protecting the terrorists from the Israelis. If fact at one time the Fenchocked the surface to air missiles on Israeli aircraft. The Jews are consistently identified as the aggressors in any conflict even if it involves totally disregarding the facts. The USA needs to cut off all aid to any entity that supports terrorism.

    "offering a reward . . . . "? Yeah, well, I'd already have the boys fueling up the missile—the one with: "Al-Qarni" in black felt pen on it, . . . actually, I think, I'd have 'em fuel up a couple of back-ups, . . . just in case, he gave us the dodge on the first one.

    And should anyone ask as to why, I'd tell 'em that, with his violent rhetoric, he was constitutive of a disruptive influence in ME relations, that, in this enlightened age, that was a no-no, . . . the next one who piped up in that way, we'd drop him, too; and, if we got so many that, we had t'start up making more missiles, we'd crank up the missile factories, 24/7, . . .

    Was it Patton and his men and methods who subdued the Moslems in the Philippines and Indonesia? He put-the-fear-a-god-in-'em, and in about 2 years, in all those islands, they threw in the towel. He would butcher the lot of them, each time saving one, turning him loose, and shortly, word got around, . . .

    Such as Al-Qarni and his associates and their people, are to be ruled with an appropriately firm grip, . . . the while, we have very many who, if they had to dress out a chicken, wimply wouldn't eat fried chicken, . . .

    Of course, devout Muslims are eager to kidnap a lot more Israeli soldiers. The REWARD for kidnapping is HUGE.

    In psychological terms it is known as positive reinforcement. Rewarding behavior that is considered good and desirable. The lesson given by Israel's disgraceful leaders.

    Oh, for the wonderful, lost days of Entebbe when Israel stood tall and strong. Israel was admired and deeply respected. It is ONLY the Israel of Entebbe fame that can survive.

    To Brujo Blanco,

    You state: "During the last major conflict the French sent a warship with the an ouced intention of protecting the terrorists from the Israelis. If fact at one time the Fenchocked the surface to air missiles on Israeli aircraft."

    Could you give links to this information, titles of articles on this, etc.? This is extremely shocking if it is correct and should be widely disseminated on the internet.

    It is alarming that time after time, Western nations have taken the side of the most barbaric Muslim terrorists. Including, forcing American, European, UK and other taxpayers to finance the Muslim terrorist organization, the Palestinian Authority. The PA is also armed and given continual advanced military training by America.

    when there is supply there`ll be the demand. Israely supply of terrorists inevitably grows Arabic demand. The author himself happily greeted the gigantic exchange. The weakness made is not the cause for the complain.

    Hey Facebook, this must to be illegal. To offer a reward to kidnap anyone should be punished by the law, and to publishing it seems to me also a crime. We know the Saudi Real family as a bunch of perverted but this is frankly despicable!!!
