Israeli kidnapped and killed by terrorists Hamas claims to 'stop rocket attacks' signaled intent to murder Jews by other means

September 26, 2005

MIM: The mistaken interpretration that the declaration by Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar that the group would cease rocket attacks, to mean that Hamas was cowed by Israeli attacks, evokes the maxim that "someone who will kill you will also lie to you". As MIM predicted - Hamas's statement that they will 'cease rocket attacks' meant that they intended to step up the murder of Jews by other means-such as suicide bombings, shootings, and stabbings. The kidnapping of an Israeli from the streets of Israel has not happened in years, and is further proof that the deportation Jews in Gaza was a sign for terrorists to pursue an all out war on Jews which has been launched by massive bombardment of towns and declaring open season on Jews worldwide

"...Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar claims he has ordered an end to rocket attacks and a halt to military style celebrations in order 'to preserve the truce' in which scores of Jews were murdered and maimed.

One can only conclude that the 'end of rocket attacks' means an escalation in killing by other means..."

Jerusalem Man Kidnapped and Murdered by Hamas

Monday, September 26, 2005

It was released for publication Monday evening that an Israeli Jew from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev was kidnapped Wednesday and murdered by Arab terrorists.

The body of Sasson Nuriel was discovered Monday morning in the Arab village of Bituniya, west of Ramallah.

A gag order on the case was partially lifted Monday evening.

Nuriel, 55, owned a candy factory in the Mishor Adumim industrial zone, near Jerusalem. His murderers, it appears, were members of the Hamas terrorist organization.

Nuriel disappeared last Wednesday and his wife reported him missing to the police late that night. Police and Shabak (General Security Services) agents then carried out a search and investigation that led to the discovery of Nuriel's body Monday morning and the arrest of at least one Hamas terrorist in connection with the murder. His body showed signs of extreme violence.

The Palestinian Authority did nothing to assist Israel in its search for the kidnap-murder victim.

Nuriel's funeral is set to take place at 8 PM at the Givat Sha'ul cemetery in Jerusalem.
