As part of the on-going, cynical use of the ‘missing‘ Jewish settler colonists, Israel’s Jewish soldiers are re-arresting those Palestinian political prisoners that Israel had freed in previous exchanges or the most recent round of so-called “peace talks” negotiated by US Secretary of State, John Kerry, in addition to any Palestinian it believes is a member of, affiliated with or sympathetic to Hamas. Hamas represents a real threat to Israel’s continued domination over Palestine because it does not cower, will not capitulate and will not relinquish the legitimate right of resistance (as affirmed by UN resolution 3013: “The struggles of peoples under colonial and alien domination and racist regimes for the implementation of their right to self-determination and independence is legitimate and in full accordance with the principles of international law.”). This is a stark contrast to the Fatah party, which seems to prefer its fat cat lifestyle and paltry crumbs from Jewish Israel’s table.
Note that these arrests occurred after the bodies were “found.”
