Two months after Gil-Ad Shaer, Naftali Frenkel and Eyal Yifrah were murdered near Hebron, top Hamas official admits groups' operatives behind 'heroic' kidnap, murder of teens.

A senior Hamas religious figure admitted Wednesday that Hamas had kidnapped and murdered Gil-Ad Shaer, Naftali Frenkel and Eyal Yifrah, the three Israeli teens who disappeared June 12th only to be found dead three weeks later after a massive IDF search mission.

This is the first time any Hamas official has taken responsibility for the murder of the boys.


Hamas admits to kidnapping three Israeli teens

I'm sure the naysayers and Hamas apologists will not like the source, but is this behavior really such a stretch for Hamas? But for those of you, here's video as well:

“There are those who say that it was your brothers in the al-Qassam Brigades, who carried it out for the sake of al-Qassam members who are in jails and who sit in a hunger strike,” al-Arouri said.


Am I missing something? This doesn't quite sound like an admission to me.

How nice. Very convenient. What are scapegoats? Is scapegoating a religious ritual for Judaism? Why yes, yes it is. Integral in fact. Or, is this "news" just a Red Herring.

PS, I'm still thinking about you. Oh, and here too. Better yet, why not just Google it.

After Israel's top leadership exhaustively blamed Hamas for kidnap of 3 teens, they've now admitted killers were acting as "lone cell."

So, after Israel admits that it wasn't Hamas, we now have the Israeli press clinging onto some potential fantasy to justify their governments brutal occupation, who would have thought.

Hamas was created by Israel so I am even more disinterested in what they say as much as I am for Israeli or zionist. Only thing that matters is that we should all treat each others as human beings and not try exploit the situation to justify ones hatred for humanity and our right for freedom.

There's no outright confession there, and I thought the guys responsible were already in custody. Anyway, either way, if we're talking numbers and deaths or score etc. then Chomsky said it best:



For the past 14 years, the norm is that Israel kills more than two Palestinian children a week. The latest Israeli rampage was set of by the brutal murder of three Israeli boys from a settler community in the occupied West Bank. A month before, two Palestinian boys were shot dead in the West Bank city of Ramallah. That elicited no attention, which is understandable, since it is routine. “The institutionalised disregard for Palestinian life in the West helps explain not only why Palestinians resort to violence,” the respected Middle East analyst Mouin Rabbani reports, “but also Israel’s latest assault on the Gaza Strip.”

Another thought, if 3 people were kidnapped & killed somewhere else, it would be a simple case of convict & sentence. Israel however do things much differently: convict, sentence & blow the crap out of an entire city killing thousands. That is some weird justice right there

It's my understanding, that a tape was made. On that tape, the hostage takers spoke Hebrew.


Am I wrong?

If you watch the video with English subtitles here's what it says:


The struggle of the masses of our people has expanded to include all the territories that have been occupied, and the highlight of it was the heroic deed that was carried out by Al-Qassam Brigades - the kidnapping of 3 settlers in Hebron.

And if a non-Jewish person speaks Hebrew they will burst into flames? Sorry, it's not some super secret/sacred language that nobody else can learn... It is quite common for Palestinians to speak Hebrew as well as Arabic since many used to work in Israel, and some still do... In fact it is quite common for people in this region to speak more than one language. Many Israeli's speak English as well as Hebrew. I have a couple of Arab Israeli friends/co-workers here (A Palestinian and a Druze), and they both speak/write Arabic, English, and Hebrew fluently...

On la lighter note, how stupid does Israel think people really are? Or do they just think the uneducated middle American mega church members are stupid?

Yeah, the latter, I agree.

It's odd how they bring all the vitriol upon themselves.

No. Already denied by both sides. This video means nothing but more weak justifications for the slow slaughter of the people of Palestine. No matter how hard you try, you will not convince educated people that Israel is not the evil aggressor.

Stick to the simple church goers who support a Israel blindly because they think they're in the wrong only religiously.

I would like to read the full transcript, it appears that they may have taken different parts of different conversation topics and lumped them together to fabricate this "admission".




Sheikh Saleh al-Arouri, a senior Hamas religious figure, is heard on the video saying that he “blessed the heroic action” which was “carried out by the al-Qassam Brigades” — the armed wing of Hamas. This action, “the kidnapping to Hebron of the three settlers,” was an “operation spoken of far and wide,” al-Arouri added.

Notice how it's not a full quote?

This is not an admission until they can provide the full transcript which can be validated by people who can speak Arab.

I've seen many of the alleged quotes from Saleh al-Arouri quoted differently too, something smells fishy and it's not that tuna boat across the harbor.

They are told Genesis 12:3 means unconditional support, no matter what. Otherwise, they hate Israel, and by extension, God. They ignore Christ's choice words about the religious leadership of the day.

Clearly, that is not what Genesis 12:3 tells them to do.

I am starting to think the name YHWH, was usurped by another god, for lack of better terminology. A violent one at that. Jesus would probably agree. Same with Paul.

Watch the video with English subtitles - I transcribed them above... I'll ask my friend to confirm the translation - if it is inaccurate I'll gladly post that here with his translation of the video. I doubt it will be too far off though, as many people speak Arabic here and the media would get called out on it pretty quick.

I will have to watch the video later, but thank you for being proactive in the effort to have this looked into further. I wasn't portraying the admission to be factually false but a couple things bug me about how it was said.

The fact that both Israel and Hamas have both already denied Hamas involvement bothers me too. As others said, this might be a last ditch attempt for Israel to save some face due to the recent conflict and negative light it has brought to Israel.

Really though, who can be sure either way?

We are all being played.

Man. They really have to stop while they are behind. In the digital age you can't just say something and it be gospel anymore. When is the IDF controlled media going to understand that?

Source please?

Haaretz is often critical of Israeli actions and policies, and even Ynet has their moments - they just ran an Op-Ed saying that Hamas are not terrorists...

I know the Israeli government occasionally censors sensitive info for tactical purposes, but to say the Israeli media is run by the IDF I think is not accurate or fair...
