Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement continues to glorify and celebrate the kidnapping of three Israeli youths last week, with postings on its official Facebook page.
One cartoon Fatah posted presented the three kidnapped Israeli teens as mice caught on three hooks on a fishing rod:
Another visual Fatah post referred to the three boys as “Three Shalits,” a reference to Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit who was kidnapped and held ransom for 5 years until Israel released 1,027 prisoners to free him.:
Text on fingers, right to left: “Three, Shalits, Long live Palestine.”
Text on palm: “Three Shalits.”
Status text: “Reactions to the ‘Three Shalits’ campaign, which has taken off in the social media networks in support of the capture of the Israeli occupation soldiers.”
