Hamas Terror Group Mocks Israel With Cartoon of Kidnapped Soldier Shalit (Video)

The Hamas terror group released a twisted cartoon this week depicting abducted Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit who was kidnapped on June 25, 2006.
Haaretz reported:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit out at the militant Palestinian organization Hamas on Sunday, after the group released an animated short film depicting abducted Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit, who has been captive by Hamas in Gaza for nearly four years, returning to Israel in a coffin.

The video, said Netanyahu was a reflection of “the true character of Hamas.”

“It is yet another despicable action aimed to help the Hamas leadership avoid making a decision regarding our offer for a prisoner swap deal which it has not responded to for many months,” Netanyahu added…

The three-minute animation, shown on the website of Hamas’ military wing, warns that Shalit could face the same fate as Israel Air Force navigator Ron Arad, whose whereabouts have been unknown since he bailed out of his plane over Lebanon in 1986…

The voice-over in the clip is that of Gilad Shalit, as heard in a video released by his captors last September.

In the cartoon, the soldier’s father Noam Shalit is seen walking aimlessly, before picking up a newspaper with a front-page advertisement offering a reward of $50 million for information on his son.

The advertisement is a direct reference to Israel’s offer of a $10 million reward for information about Arad.

Shalit was abducted on June 25, 2006 in a cross-border raid launched from the Gaza Strip by Palestinian militants. Hamas is demanding that Israel free 1,000 prisoners in exchange for him, but negotiations, held via a German mediator, have so far brought no result.

Here’s the Hamas video:
