CAPTURED ISRAELI SOLDIER AMONG INJURED IN ISRAELI BLITZKRIEG

Report: Captive IDF soldier Shalit wounded in Gaza air strikes
By Haaretz Service
Army Radio reported Monday that captive Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit had been wounded in one of the IAF raids on the Gaza Strip, quoting an unnamed Hamas source as saying that the organization intended to safeguard him.

It said Hamas sources had confirmed an Egyptian television report on that Shalit, kidnapped in Israeli territory outside the Strip in June, 2006 by Hamas and other militant Palestinian groups, was injured.

But there was no word on his condition, or how he was wounded.

Vice Premier Haim Ramon told the radio Monday that while he did not know if the report were accurate, he was “convinced that from Hamas’ standpoint, Shalit is a bargaining chip which in the end will bring about the release of hundreds of Palestinian prisoners.

“Despite that,” Ramon added. “We are all concerned for his situation.”

Unnamed Israeli officials were quogted as saying that it was possible that the report represented an attempt to use psychological warfare on Israel.

    ISRAEL GOVERNMENT AND ISRAELI CITIZENS ARE PUSHING FOR A GENOCIDE OF ARABS, MUSLIMS, GAZANS AND ALL PALESTINIANS BEFORE JANUARY 20. THEY CLAIM THAT OBAMA IS A MUSLIM AND ONCE OBAMA IS IN POWER THEY (ISRAEL AND ISRAELITES) WON’T GET THE GREEN LIGHT TO KEEP KILLING MUSLIMS.

    i read in many jewish blogspots, bloggers and in the Jerusalem Post many jewish and israelis insulting Obama. They (israelis) claimed that Israeli forces need to kill all gazans and palestinians right before Jan 20 because Obama is muslim

    face it, 70% of the general Israeli population is indeed in loyal support for Israel authorities, I don’t know if Israeli citizens are like US citizens, i mean mind-controlled by education, TV and media, maybe that’s why most israeli citizens are in favor of Israel’s invasion of Gaza

    its just like here in USA. after 2001, most americans sided with Bush, even the centrist-left

    i was wondering about him, and even pondered the irony of him being innjured by the agression of his own people

    It would be nice if he put directly in the path of one of the many IDF bombing rans.

    As Shylock said … A pound of flesh.

    Yeah, the funniest thing is that just two days before this report, Hamas have said that Shalit is not in Gaza at all, and that if Israelis are trying to go into Gaza to find him, they won’t. Smart Hamas, smart…
