Firas Press quotes an interview with Hamas spokesman Abu Marzouk where he states that he no longer knows if Gilad Shalit is alive and that his safety is no longer a concern for Hamas.

In other news, Marzouk also claims that Hamas has kiilled dozens of soldiers and that Israel is hiding their deaths, in one of the many examples of Elder's First Rule of Arab Projection that is very relevant today.

This rule states that "Arabs will project their own crimes and worldviews on everyone else." The corollary is that if Arabs accuse Israel of a crime, they are invariably far more guilty of that same crime.

To give another example, Palestine Today accuses the IDF of using "human shields" in Gaza. This is laughable, as Hamas would have no compunctions about firing on its own civilians in order to hurt IDF soldiers.

In this same vein of lies for the sake of propaganda, as YNet reported,
We come across a local family in one of the buildings. Grandparents, a few young parents, some children and a few toddlers. Sitting on a rug, their legs are covered in blankets and two soldiers are standing guard nearby. "What about them?" I ask. "They're free to go if they want to, but they don't want to," said Eilon Perry, Givati's operations officer. "They informed us they would be staying in the house and we have no choice but to accept that."

The family suddenly notices the cameras, and immediately, the expression on their faces changes. "We have no food," they say in Arabic, as one of the youngsters suggests we interview him in English about their plight. Givati troops are extremely concerned about being portrayed as abusing innocent civilians. Perry points to a stack of canned goods, water bottles and other provisions. "We provided some of that and they cook and eat quite well," he said. The Palestinians seem to understand him and one of them smiles. It's a war – they had to try.
The citizens and "witnesses" themselves that are relied upon by the media are in on the game, and will anxiously seek out the media to repeat whatever the current propaganda line is. If an "eyewitness" is being quoted by name, you can be certain that they are making sure that they don't say anything that would make Hamas angry.

Back to Shalit's case, the loudest claims about Israel is that the IDF is breaking international laws in Gaza. Well, besides the laws we've already proven that Hamas is breaking constantly, there's another little one about how to treat prisoners of war, and Hamas now admits that it is ignoring that one, too.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
