So the kidnappers just released a video of the hostages and this is what they had to say:
"So, just want to let you know I am here and alive and give my love to my family and friends and ask to do anything you can to try to help us get out of here," he added.
"If you could apply any pressure on the local government here in Gaza and the West Bank, that would be much appreciated by Steve and myself," Wiig said.Now why would the hostage takers distribute a video in which they allowed the hostages to say to put pressure on Hamas? That makes no sense. Who can believe that this is a legitimate kidnapping in which one Palestinian group is telling the hostages to demand that action be taken against Hamas?
"We are going to exchange the Muslim female and male prisoners in American jails in return for the prisoners that we have. We are going to give you 72 hours beginning midnight tonight to take your decision," Ramattan quoted the statement as saying."
Who really thinks that Palestinians care more about American prisoners than they do about Palestinian prisoners being held in Israeli jails?
It's an absurd video and it is an even more absurd demand.
This is a PLOY to put more pressure on Hamas and I think that the puppets in Palestine are responsible.
None of it makes any sense at all. NONE OF IT.
