Arab Pal Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh

Call the WAHHHHmbulance

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - In his first public comments since Israel began its Gaza Strip offensive, Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Friday that Israel cannot "hijack" his government through retaliatory measures meant to win the freedom of a kidnapped soldier.

Though Haniyeh did not directly address Israel's demand that Hamas-linked militants hand over Cpl. Gilad Shalit, 19, he implied that the government would not trade him for eight Cabinet ministers and 56 other Hamas officials arrested Thursday. [...]

However, Haniyeh did say he was working hard to end the five-day-old crisis.

Well, doah! Those Israeli troops poised at the border ready to fry your ass finally caught your attention that hundreds of rockets fired into Israel and the kidnapping of Shalit from inside of Israel is not acceptable.
Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz called for leaders who have influence on the Hamas government to exert immediate pressure on it to release Shalit.

"The quicker this is done the better it will be. If the soldier will be returned and the Qassam (rocket) fire will be halted, we will also return our soldiers to their bases," Peretz was quoted as saying in the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot. [...]

Haniyeh said he was in contact with Arab, Muslim and European leaders to try to resolve the crisis, "but this Israeli military escalation complicates matters and makes it more difficult."

Israel is making this difficult? Naw, couldn't have a thing to do with acts of war against Israel in the first place.

These are not the Jews you expected, eh?
