IDF announces -- No IDF soldiers were kidnapped

1:08 PM The IDF Spokesman has announced that after an accounting of the entire IDF army this evening, no soldiers are missing and that no soldier was kidnapped.

3 items:

1. Think of what a logistical nightmare it is to count all of the IDF soldiers.

2. Note how reputable the Palestinian News Sources are like Maan that claimed fanciful stories of of not only the soldier's abduction, but that he called the army to report he was kidnapped.

3. If G-d forbid a soldier was kidnapped, then Israel would have completely lost its deterrence against terrorists. Another 1000 terrorists would be freed for this soldier, including convicted murderer and senior Fatah leader, Marwan Bargoutti.

Thank G-d this particular nightmare is over, though for the families of the other kidnapped IDF soldiers, the night is still long.

What do you think about the female soldier that claimed she saw the kidnapping?

JAMEEL:

better a "logistics nightmare" than the real nightmare of a missing soldier. thank god all were accounted for

SIVERBER:

how about better safe than sorry

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Siverber: No idea what she saw...but her testimony was sincere enough that the IDF took her seriously (and she was questioned dozens of times yesterday)

Ditto Lion of Zion and Jameel.

Can you imagine the anguish if you saw what looked like/maybe was a kidnapping, but decided not to report it because maybe-it-wasn't-really-that-and-then-what-will-people-think-of-me. And then it turned out to BE in fact a kidnapping. How could you live with knowing that you could've prevented another family from being plunged into the Shalits' nightmare, but neglected to do so?

Thank G^d it turned out OK in this particular case.
