  1. “I featured a photo of a Hamas billboard boasting of a mystery prisoner ”

    Prisoner X. I thought that only Israel did that.

    The castaway story is bull. No one gets pulled out to sea and drifts miles away, when the local ocean currents travel north to south. http://www.waterindustry.org/New%20Projects/israel-1.htm

    My guess is that the detainee is a wayward African migrant and not a citizen.

    1. @ Figg: That’s another good diversion, but false. He’s an Israeli citizen & you can’t simply wave your hand and absolve yourselves of any responsibility for him. Or if you you’ll rightly be called racist for abandoning your African citizens.

      1. If an Israeli citizen chose to enter Gaza I don’t see why Israel should barter for his return. Maybe he doesn’t want to return. If the citizen is mentally ill, than Hamas is more cynical in holding him than Israel is racist.

        The fact that Hamas make banners proclaiming some sort of victory in capturing the this guy is pretty sick.

  2. Going on with your libels, I see. The truth, of course, is that Israel went to great lengths to free Azzam Azzam and Rafram Haddad when they were captured, and they were neither Ashkenazi, Mizrahi nor IDF. Your passion of coloring Israel black no matter what it does blinds you yet again.

    1. Rafram Haddad is a Tunisian Jew born in the island of Djerba – arrested in Libya for being an Israeli spy, he was later freed thanks to Avigdor Lieberman’s intervention. He is thus very Mizrachi. Azzam Azzam however, is an Israeli Druze – he spent 8 years in an Egyptian prison, before being freed in a prisoner exchange, accused of using women’s underwear soaked in invisible ink to pass information to the Mossad. I couldn’t make this up if I wanted to.

  3. ” Lieberman was a nightclub bouncer back in his native Moldova and is known for his hot temper and beating up teenage boys”

    How about adding some context Richard? Three boys had assaulted Lieberman’s son and Lieberman later punched one of boys in the face.

    Yup. Lieberman and Dahlan are cut from the same cloth.

    1. Just because my son has an altercation with peers doesn’t give me the right as an adult to beat the crap out of them. Especially if I’m supposed to be a responsible political leader. But no doubt among his constituency it made him a hero. You neglected to say he was arrested and charged with assault.

  4. How come that half a year later nothing is heard of this story? Neither Hamas nor any other Palestinian source doesn’t say anything? Parents and family members of the Israeli soldier don’t cry out?
