Hamas threatens to kill Gilad Schalit

AS I am sure you recall, the abduction of Corporal Gilad Schalit from his post at the Gaza border last year sparked an IDF incursion into Gaza last year.
Since last year thousands of Qassam rockets have been launched into Israel from the territory, territory that was recently handed over to the Arab Palestinians.

Because of the continuous barrage of rockets, the Olmert administration is weighing its options, including an extended military campaign into the Gaza strip. In response to the mulling of options to stop the continuous assault against civilian targets, Hamas's armed wing, Izzadin a-Kassam, has threatened to kill Gilad Schalit.

Is there anyone who is still stupid enough to side with the enemies of Israel and is still so blindly racist as to think that Israel gets what it deserves? Hamas invades sovereign territory, takes a young soldier hostage, continues launching rockets into the sovereign territory, even threatens to kill the boy if the sovereign state responds, and the rest of the world says absolutely nothing. Oh, but if Israel does have to enter Gaza to stop the rockets, and Hamas kills the boy in response and Israel does what MK Katz suggests to do in response, THEN the world will have nothing but words of condemnation - for Israel.

In response to the report, MK Yisrael Katz (Likud) called on Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to declare that if Hamas harmed Schalit, PA Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and his friends in the Hamas government would be assassinated.

I wonder if after all this time he is still alive? Has there been any evidence of his living?

Talk about being the ultimate pawn, that soldier has been through hard times.

Yeah, the poor guy has had a bad deal, no doubt.

The rumor is that he is alive, the Egyptians allegedly verified that a while back.
