Hamas web site shows kidnap of IDF soldier

This video is in Arabic with Hebrew subtitles but it's mostly raw and obvious, so I'll translate for you what's going on and then you can watch it.

This is a short (less than a minute) video that shows the kidnapping of an IDF soldier by Hamas. You will see Ehud Barak (the current defense minister) give an order to blow up the house in which he is being held (from the air), and then you will see Rafi Reshef (a newscaster on Israel's Channel 2 television) giving notice of the soldier's death.

This video appears on the web site of Hamas' al-Qassam brigades in February 2009.

It was translated and posted by Palestinian Media Watch. What they don't tell you - but I'm sure is obvious to many of you - is that it's meant for us to think that the solder is Gilad Shalit.

The lead-in says "Zionist soldier, the IDF cannot bring you back."

Let's go to the videotape.

One is meant to get the idea is its Israel that is killing its own soldiers... not Hamas.

Is this a paliwood production?

Yes, but I think it was also meant to say that Israel had killed Shalit during Operation Cast Lead.


No. Pallywood Productions involve live characters. This was clearly staged.
