Following are excerpts from a reenactment of the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier, which took place at a Hamas rally in Tul Karm, the West Bank, celebrating the 19th anniversary of the establishment of Hamas. The event was aired on Al-Aqsa TV on December 17, 2006.
Oh those who think the sword of Hamas will break, and who think that Hamas will be destroyed, ask the soldiers of our enemy about us. Ask Gilad Shalit about us. Ask the soldiers of our enemy about us. Ask how the soldiers were led to the border. We will emerge from all directions. We will besiege you. We will besiege and kidnap your soldiers.
