I don’t want to appear to be blaming Palestinian militants for the current impasse.  They’re clearly at best opportunists taking advantage of prevailing conditions.  The blame is entirely Israel’s and belongs to the Netanyahu government.

And if that doesn’t convince you he’s pro-terror, consider this exchange in the comments to the above post.

“there may’ve been an attempt to kidnap an IDF soldier along the lines of what happened to Gilad Shalit.”

What is different about Israeli soldiers that they are kidnapped even when they are on duty and engaged in combat whereas soldiers from every other country in the world are captured when they are taken by the enemy during combat operations?

Damn, you’re right. I can’t believe that that locution sneaks up on me every time I write about this type of incident. It’s embedded in my subconscious somehow. I’ll change it tomorrow.
