Per the Jerusalem Post
Hamas posted a video of kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit on YouTube on Monday, suggesting he would be killed if a deal was not soon reached.
In the animated video, two masked men are show standing on either side of Gilad Schalit in a dark room, with one of them holding an AK-47 assault rifle. At the end of the 24-second video, gun shots are heard as the movie goes black and the words “Is the mission completed?” are seen written in Arabic.
That Hamas is depraved enough to produce and distribute such a vile video is not surprising but still should sicken anyone with a modicum of moral decency. In other words, expect more pimping for the terrorist group by the likes of Laila El-Haddad and her fellow columnists at the Guardian.
(Update, September 22: Ynet and other news sources are now reporting that Hamas has denied responsibility for the video. We’ll continue to monitor such reports, and update the story as needed.)
