Kayid al-Rol, a senior official of the People’s Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said Thursday that the Palestinian people stand behind their “right” to kidnap Israeli civilians and claimed the 16 year old high school students are “Israeli soldiers,” the Hebrew-language Ynet website reported.
The website also reported that Jibril Rajoub, a ranking Fatah official who is considered close to Abu Mazen, said the “only language Israeli understand is kidnapping.” The PA official said that while he does not support the kidnapping of civilians, it is the only way Palestinians can free their prisoners in Israeli jails.
Of course, Rajoub forgot to mention that the Palestinians in Israeli jails are suspected and convicted terrorists. But that’s a small fact.
