THE SHALIT EXPERIENCE

Source: Egyptian Police Officers Kidnapped and Sold to Islamists in Gaza

The purpose of imprisoning the officers is to pressure Egypt to remove restrictions placed on Muhammad al-Zawahiri, younger brother of Al Qaeda's top man.

According to an Egyptian source, three Egyptian police officers and one senior police official who were kidnapped by gunmen in the Sinai in February, 2011, during the rebellion against former President Hosni Mubarak, are most likely being held by Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip, Yoni Alpert’s Terror Watch reports.

The four hostages are Mohammed Mustafa Johrei, Sharif Al Adawi, Mohammed Hussein Walid Saad El-Din.

Based on information obtained by sources associated with the Egyptian security system, and which has come to the attention of the kidnapped men’s families, it appears likely that a force comprised of Bedouins and Islamist extremists kidnapped the officers close to the town of El Arish in the northern Sinai, while the officers were securing the Egyptian border with Gaza in Rafah. The same source speculate that the officers were later sold to the of Army of Islam terror organization, headed by Mumtaz Durmush.

The Army of Islam , affiliated with the Salafi movement and the Global Jihad, is based in Gaza but also operates extensively in the Sinai. The purpose of imprisoning the officers for such a long time is to pressure the Egyptian leadership to release radical Islamists from prisons in Egypt, and to remove the restrictions on the free movement of Muhammad al-Zawahiri, leader of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad and the younger brother of Al Qaeda’s top man.

Al-Zawahiri was released from an Egyptian jail in March. Since his release, he has been stating that nothing has changed after the toppling of Mubarak, and that he has no faith in the regime of Mohammed Morsi or in Egyptian democracy. He also advocates waging a religious war against the Jews and Israel.

Egyptian sources suspect that Hamas officials have known about the kidnapping and even took part in it. Among the suspects is senior Hamas commander Ayman Nofal, who served as commander of the Hamas military wing in central Gaza when he was caught by Egyptian security forces in 2008 after infiltrating into Egyptian territory and attempting to launch terrorist attacks there. Nofal escaped from Egyptian prison and fled back to Gaza Strip during last year’s upheaval in Egypt.

The Families of the kidnapped officers blame the Egyptian leadership for neglecting to investigate and seek the release of their loved ones using the new regime’s close ties with Hamas. They also condemn President Morsi, himself a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, off refusing to meet with them and shirking his responsibility for the safety of Egyptian officers.

  1. This week, at a time when one million people in Israel are targeted for hundreds of aerial attacks launched by the Gaza regime , a new Israel Advocacy Task Force has been spawned.

    The Israel Advocacy Task Force will address issues of the day that Israel has to cope with on a daily basis.

    Let’s begin with Arab education.

    Contrary to the widely publicized notion that the Palestinian Authority and UNRWA intended to incorporate Holocaust education in their schools, there has never been a plan for a Holocaust curriculum in any UNRWA or Palestinian Authority school.

    Michael Kingsley-Nyinah, director of the executive office of UNRWA said clearly: “I am writing to clarify that there is no ‘Holocaust curriculum’ as such in UNRWA schools and there are no plans to introduce one.”.

    There is, however, one aspect of the new Palestinian Authority educational system in that does deal to the Holocaust.

    In all Palestinian Authority schools, students learn from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s PHD, which he wrote 28 years ago at Moscow University entitled “The Other Side: The Secret Relations between Nazism and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement.”.

    Abbas’s thesis: the Zionist movement initiated murder of the Jews in Europe.

    The time has come to ask that everyone who funds the Palestinian Authority educational system – beginning with the US Congress – condition money to the PA on the immediate cancellation of their "holocaust curriculum".

    With the genesis of the new session of US Congress in January, The Israel Advocacy Task Force will escort experts on Palestinian Authority and UNRWA education to make presentations for staffers the Middle East Subcommittee of the US House Foreign Relations committee, in tandem with the Center for Near East Policy Research in Jerusalem, http://www.IsraelBehindTheNews, com, ;directed by investigative journalist and community organizer David Bedein.

    To that end, The Israel Advocacy Task Force is seeking sponsors to cover the cost to hire and escort the experts.

    Meanwhile, the time has come for everyone who reads this memo to contact people of influence to demand that the PA and UNRWA cease and desist from the greatest lie perpetrated against the survivors of the Nazi Horrors…applying the principle that a lie repeated often enough will become believable.

    Gotta love the quranic love fest! Every time I think I'm going to get a rest from all the entertainment they provide, something new pops up. I simply cannot get a handle on buying enough popcorn and beer for the festivities. I have to buy beer by the keg and am investing in a commercial popcorn popper.

    Oh how deliciously ironic that would be!!
