What lessons do we learn from today´s prisoners exchange ??


The Liberator !!!

What lessons do we learn from today´s prisoners swap ??

at least four lessons :

The first,
is that we should take another half a dozen Israeli soldiers as new-prisoners and later exchange them for the rest of our political-prisoners in Israel´s hands.
( no other method worked,so far)

The second,
Israel still insists that all those swapped prisoners
were all “terrorists” therefore , we ought to accuse
Israel in the International Criminal Court ,
for releasing terrorists back into the normal life,
(thus, the crime of “assisting to terrorism”.)

The third ,
Gilat Shalit´s mother is worth 1027 Palestinian-mothers.
Because humanity, also, has “double-standards” !!
(sometimes extreme-double-standards )

Israeli parents can now send again their children
to besiege us and to bomb us ,without hesitations ,
because Nathaniahu always brings them back home
(home to a home which is not theirs…..)
Raja Chemayel
on a happier day !!

NB :
Remember please that it is Syria that is behind Hamas !!
Not Jordan nor Egypt nor Qatar nor Saudia nor Kuwait

The US media reports: Gilad Shalit swapped for 1000 non-people

By now, Gilad Shalit is back in Israel, while around 1000 Palestinian prisoners will eventually be released from Israeli jails, then scattered to various locations from Jerusalem to Egypt to Syria, where many will live in permanent exile. While some Israelis doubt the wisdom of the prisoner swap, there can be little doubt that the state of Israel has scored a public relations victory in the United States. American coverage of the prisoner exchange has focused almost exclusively on Shalit, his family, and Jewish Israeli society’s “bittersweet” reaction to the deal.

Reports on the exchange generally did not mention the identities of the Palestinian prisoners, and if they did, they tended to only name those who had committed violence against Israelis. It is of course newsworthy that perpetrators of lethal violence against Israeli civilians are being freed, and that many Israelis are outraged about it, but the American media made no effort to contextualize the conflict propelling the violence — the word “occupation” was not mentioned once in today’s reports on the exchange. Nor was there been any description of disproportionate Israeli violence against Palestinian civilians, including by Shalit’s tank unit, or Israel’s routine kidnapping of Palestinians without charges. In reporting the first major Israel-Palestine news event since the Mavi Marmara massacre in 2010, the American media produced an entirely Shalit-centric barrage of coverage that even the Israeli Foreign Ministry could not have matched.

Here is a wrap-up of breaking and recent reports:

The New York Times’ scandal plagued Jerusalem bureau chief Ethan Bronner attempted to channel the mood of Jewish Israeli society in an October 15 report on Shalit’s scheduled release. Bronner, whose own son served in the Israeli military, wrote, “When Israelis say they view the seized soldier, Staff Sgt. Gilad Shalit, as their own son, they mean it.” Throughout Bronner’s article, he upheld the national campaign for Shalit’s release as an example of the higher value Israel places on human life, while dismissing those who think otherwise as “Palestinians and some critics of Israel.”

Today, Bronner relied on help from reporters Stephen Farrell and Fares Akram in Gaza to cover the prisoner exchange. The article mentioned the identities of exactly zero Palestinian prisoners, only describing the preparations for their return to Gaza. Similarly, the Washington Post’s coverage of the swap focused entirely on Shalit, with no mention of individual Palestinian prisoners.

CNN International’s Richard Allen Greene did not interview any Palestinians about the prisoner deal. Instead, he quoted leaders of Jewish American organizations and Israel’s ambassador to London, who claimed that “everyone [in Israel] has been touched by terrorism.” On Twitter, former CNN correspondent and current ABC “This Week” host Christiane Amampour referred to 400 of the Palestinian prisoners released in the deal as “hardcore Hamas activists.”

The Associated Press devoted a whole graf to a quote by the mother of Palestinian prisoner Abdel Latif Shkair, focusing on Shalit and his family throughout the rest of the article. Reuters did not detail the backgrounds of Palestinian prisoners in its report on the exchange, noting only that “many…going free were convicted in deadly attacks.” How many? Reuters did not say.

CBS News’s Mark Phillips named a few Palestinian prisoners, but only those who had been involved in deadly attacks on Israelis. Reporting from Tel Aviv, Philips stood next to a monument to the victims of a terror attack and declared, “Israeli cities have many — too many — monuments like the one marking a spot where 21 young people were killed by a terrorist bomb 10 years ago. The instigator of that attack is about to be set free… Some of the most hardened high-profile terrorists are not being released, and many of those who are will be sent into exile. But with a score of 1,027 to 1, the price of terror just went up.”

One prisoner left out of the swap was Ahmad Saadat, the PFLP leader abducted by Israeli forces and sentenced in a military court to thirty years in prison for belonging to an outlawed organization after the Israeli Attorney General decided the state had insufficient evidence to try Saadat in a civilian court. Saadat, who has spent the last two years in solitary confinement without family visits — punishment for his leadership of a prisoners’ rights movement — initiated a mass hunger strike of Palestinian prisoners to demand more humane conditions in Israeli jails. Yesterday, he was transfered to a hospital due to complications from twenty days without food.

For his part, Shalit reportedly told an Egyptian interviewer today, “Hamas treated me well.”

Palestinian Resistance, Zionist Entity Prisoner Exchange


Picture from Occupied palestine.wordpress

October 18, 2011

Mideast Israel PalestiniansThe Zionist entity considers itself to have paid a “heavy price” by releasing over 1000 kidnapped Palestinians in exchange for a single terrorist soldier, a manifestation of the racist nature of Israeli society, but for every single Palestinian that remains held in Zionist prisons the Palestinians have a right to introduce the world to one thousand more Gilad Shalits.

In exchange for a single captured Israeli POW over 1000 kidnapped Palestinians will be released from Zionist occupation prisons. Although a single French man serving in the Israeli terrorist army in occupied Palestine has become a household name with a face, family and friends, Palestinian prisoners are rarely given a name or a face and their friends and family are never interviewed. The human story of Gilad Shalit and his family is well known, but the Palestinians remain anonymous by the thousands.

Most of the commentary surrounding the prisoner exchange revolves around political calculations and almost always focuses on who came out the bigger winner in this deal. Is it Israel or HAMAS? What does it mean for the “peace process”? And does it weaken or strengthen the PA? Clearly the winners are, first and foremost, the liberated Palestinians and their families. But this is also a victory for the Palestinian resistance. There will be many who point to the 1000 to 1 ratio and argue this shouldn’t’ be considered a success by the Palestinian side especially since over 5000 Palestinians will remain imprisoned in Zionist jails.

Such arguments are usually put forward by those that have opposed Palestinian resistance all along, and, for political and ideological considerations, are incapable of recognizing any of its accomplishments. The lopsided numbers are a reflection of the Palestinian reality: an unarmed, civilian population occupied by a garrison entity heavily armed by a global superpower and acting outside of any moral or legal restraints.

Aside from congratulating the Palestinian people, and their resistance forces on this milestone victory, we refuse to engage in any political evaluations of this prisoner exchange deal. Only the Palestinian resistance can make such decisions.

This is a day to celebrate the return of over 1000 Palestinian fathers, sons, mothers, daughters, brothers and sisters to their families and loved ones. But as we celebrate the freedom of the brave Palestinian men and women we must also remember that thousands of Palestinians remain in Zionist prisons. The Zionist entity considers itself to have paid a “heavy price” by releasing over 1000 kidnapped Palestinians in exchange for a single terrorist soldier, a manifestation of the racist nature of Israeli society, but for every single Palestinian that remains held in Zionist prisons the Palestinians have a right to introduce the world to one thousand more Gilad Shalits.

Thank you, Mashaal

Shalit in Egypt

Shalit in Egypt

[ 18/10/2011 – 08:45 AM ]

CAIRO, (PIC)– The captured Israeli soldier in Gaza Gilad Shalit was officially delivered to Egypt on Tuesday, a source close to the Qassam Brigades, the armed wing of Hamas, said.
He said that Shalit was transferred to Cairo in a secret and complicated operation, adding that Shalit would not be handed to Israel until all released Palestinian prisoners arrive to their designed destinations.
For his part, Hamas leader Dr. Salah Al-Bardawil told the PIC on Tuesday that no problems were facing the exchange operation and that delivering Shalit was up to the Qassam Brigades.
Meanwhile, official statistics in Gaza said that 600 journalists from 250 media outlets were given permits to cover the event.
Dr. Hassan Abu Hashish, the government’s media spokesman, told the PIC on Monday evening that the government would provide special buses for reporters to cover the event at the Rafah border terminal and at the site of the ceremony thrown in honor of the liberated prisoners in downtown Gaza.

[How can the Hamas fools fall for this? Egyptian “intelligence” is inseparable from the Mossad. Might as well give him directly to the Mossad and say that, “Hamas trusts the goodwill of the Mossad!” What fools!] ,

The European source said Shalit’s transfer to Egypt was the first stage of the Egyptian-brokered agreement hammered out between Fatah, Hamas and other Palestinian factions, in coordination with the U.S. and with Syria’s support.

The deal would put the Gaza Strip under the leadership of a joint committee subordinate to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas……

Main mission of collaborators in Gaza was to find out whereabouts of Shalit

Main mission of collaborators in Gaza was to find out whereabouts of Shalit

[ 17/10/2011 – 09:21 PM ] 
GAZA, (PIC)– A security source in Gaza said that 95% of occupation’s collaborators in the Gaza Strip were tasked primarily with gathering intelligence on the whereabouts of IOF soldier Gilad Shalit who was being held captive by the resistance.

The source told al-Majd security site that most collaborators who were interrogated by the Palestinian intelligence officers in Gaza confessed that their main task was to try and find out where Shalit was held and that any collaborator who could find out his whereabouts would receive a 10 million dollar reward.
He added that that those collaborators admitted that they were each given individual tasks, but all of them were given the task of looking for Shalit.
He also said that the Shabak and Aman ordered their agents to intensify their activities during the war on Gaza at the end of 2008, expecting that the captors of Shalit might move him during the war to another place would make easy for the collaborators to find out the place where he was moved to.
The Israeli intelligence agencies used all conventional and highly advanced technical means as well as a huge reward for anyone who gives information on his whereabouts, but failed over the period five years to discover the soldier’s whereabouts.

Israeli soldiers should kill terrorists ‘in their beds’ following Shalit deal, former IDF rabbi says

17 October 2011

By Chaim Levinson, Haaretz – 17 Oct 2011

Avihai Rontzki says can understand bereaved family members who would want to avenge Palestinian prisoners released in the prisoner swap agreement, adding ‘a normal country would destroy them’

The Israel Defense Forces’ former chief Rabbi criticized a prisoner swap deal that is due to set abducted IDF soldier Gilad Shalit free, saying on Monday that Israeli soldiers should from now on “kill terrorists in their beds.”

Public debate over the Shalit swap deal has been raging in Israel ever since the Israel-Hamas agreement was revealed, with the expected release of hundreds of Palestinian terrorists who are responsible for numerous attacks on Israeli citizens.

Referring to the deal, due to take place on Tuesday, former Chief Military Rabbi Avihai Rontzki said in an interview to Arutz Sheva that IDF soldiers should no longer arrest terror suspects, instead urging them to “kill them in their beds.”

“A lot of cases shouldn’t even reach court,” Rontzki said, saying that the army should instead rely on the “wisdom of commanders and fighters.”

“When you arrive to arrest terrorists like the murderers of the Fogel family, they should just be shot, exterminated. They were terrorists that murdered people and should be killed in their beds,” the former chief IDF rabbi said.

Rontzki also referred to the possibility that family members of those killed in attacks would wish to avenge those who were released in the Shalit deal, saying: “I’m not calling for vengeance or anarchy. But it can happen.”

“Any normal country would…destroy those who seek to hurt it. The murderer who perpetrated the [2000] lynch in Ramallah, it’s inconceivable, it would bring disgust to any normal person,” Rontzki said, referring to the expected release of two Palestinians involved in the mob attack on two IDF reservists in the West Bank city.

“A country that would allow something like that needs to realize that people will rise up and do something. It’s understandable,” he added.

The former chief military rabbi also said the Shalit deal would provide a significant boost to Hamas, saying: “Terrorists don’t have tanks. Their strength comes from their fighting spirit, and Hamas got several divisions of fighters and fighting spirit today.”

Rontzki’s comments to Arutz Sheva came after a High Court session earlier Monday, which assembled to discuss petitions by bereaved families against the Shalit swap deal.

Four petitions were submitted to the court, filed by the Almagor Terror Victims Association and relatives of Israelis killed in Palestinian attacks. Judging from similar appeals in prisoner exchange deals in the past, however, the court is unlikely to intervene in what it considers a political and security issue.

During the hearing, Shvuel Schijveschuurder, a 27-year-old from Givat Shmuel who lost his parents and three of his siblings in the 2001 terror attack at the “Sbarro” restaurant in Jerusalem, yelled at Gilad Shalit’s father Noam, who came to court as a defender.

Schijveschuurder – who last week vandalized Yitzhak Rabin’s Tel Aviv memorial in protest of the Shalit deal – shouted: “Hang a black flag over your home in Mitzpe Hila, this is a day of mourning.”

PFLP warns against any harm befalling Saadat

[ 17/10/2011 – 10:37 AM ]
GAZA, (PIC)– Jamil Mizher, politburo member of the popular front for the liberation of Palestine, has held the Israeli occupation authority fully responsible for the life of the front’s detained leader Ahmed Saadat.
He said in a press release on Monday that his front would retaliate harshly if Saadat’s life was threatened. Saadat was taken to Ramle prison hospital after his health condition worsened.
He pointed out that Saadat suffered many diseases in addition to engaging in the hunger strike for 20 days.
Mizher urged for persistence in the support campaign with the Palestinian prisoners who have been waging the hunger strike to demand better incarceration conditions.
