I don’t know about you, but I’m getting a little sick and tired of this endless talk about “negotiations” for freeing the hostages, when it is absolutely clear that Hamas has no intention of releasing them until we basically surrender and open our jails to free thousands of blood-thirsty Hamas savages, allowing them to declare themselves victorious.
To wit, Taher Nuno, advisor to the chairman of the Hamas Political Bureau on the discussion regarding a deal between Israel and Hamas: (Abu Ali Express). “First of all a ceasefire and then a deal for the exchange of prisoners and the restoration of the Gaza Strip. The main point is the cessation of aggression on the Gaza Strip and after that is realized it will be possible to talk about the rest of the details. We will first discuss a total ceasefire and not a temporary ceasefire.”
Islamic Jihad also holds Israeli hostages. Here are the words of Ziyad al- Nakhala, the secretary general of the Islamic Jihad: “We emphasize our firm position: we will not join the ‘understandings’ without a comprehensive ceasefire, the withdrawal of the occupying forces from the Strip, the guarantee of the restoration of the Strip and a clear political solution that will guarantee the rights of the Palestinian people.
Reportedly, Washington is also on the bandwagon, saying a new deal is close. According to Israeli media sources, these are the details of the “new deal,” and it’s only stage one for the release of only 35 Israeli hostages:
- 45-day ceasefire in Gaza
- a “significant” increase in humanitarian aid
- 4,000-5,000 jailed terrorists released (100-250 per Israeli hostage)
The jailed Palestinian terrorists to be released include those with “blood on their hands,” meaning they have killed Israelis.
I’m just a stupid Israeli whose grandchildren are on the front lines in this war, but it seems to me that Hamas hasn’t moved an inch, despite the fact that every day Israel is destroying their “army” and their “tunnels” and their weapons. Hundreds of terrorists have been killed or taken prisoner in Khan Yunis today and yesterday alone, an estimated two thirds of Hamas’ “army.”
So forgive me if I’m a little confused. Whoever heard of a winning army “negotiating” with the fallen enemy? Israel, where are your demands? Where are your threats? What is wrong with you that you can’t behave like the winner, even when you are winning? It’s really beginning to feel pathological.
Something else I’m sick and tired of: lies and misinformation. I’m sure you’ve heard the outcries about Israeli commandos entering a hospital in Jenin and killing three “patients.” They weren’t patients, but three wanted terrorists planning an imminent 7/10 like attack in Israel :
- Muhammad Jalamana, a commander in the military wing of Hamas in Jenin and its spokesman.
- Muhammad Ghazawi, one of the founders of the “Jenin Battalion” in the military arm of the Islamic Jihad.
- Bassel Ghazawi, an operative in the Islamic Jihad military wing in Jenin and Muhammad’s brother.
So far, 2,960 wanted persons have been arrested throughout Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley, over 1,350 of whom are associated with Hamas.
And that cemetery the IDF supposedly “desecrated?” I’m sure you’ll be shocked to learn (not) it was on top of a long terror tunnel.
That great idea to flood the tunnels with sea water? Well, turns out, it doesn’t really work. But Israel hasn’t given up, working on technologically advanced solutions to overcome the obstacles that would see Hamas floating in a real flood, (“flood” is what they called the barbaric attack on Israelis) all the way to Kingdom Come. Hope they have their bathing suits, goggles and underwater tanks. But then, it might be a bit cold, don’t you think?
While the talkers talk, our army is bombing, destroying, and taking prisoners, which is the only way we are getting our hostages back without becoming lemmings.
