Hamas spokesman on missing Israeli soldier

Israel is searching Gaza for a missing soldier.

The IDF says Second Lt. Hadar Goldin was captured in a Hamas attack that broke the ceasefire.

Osama Hamdan is a Hamas spokesman who says he does not know what happened to Lt. Goldin. He then accused the missing soldier of killing civilians.

    On Saturday, many correspondents on CNN reported on the abduction of an Israeli soldier by Hamas. The president scolded Hamas for taking the man. As did the UN Secretary General. The Prime Minister of Israel, Netanyahu said that Israel would fight back hard in response, and 62 civilians were killed in Rafah city within hours of this incident. Hamas said they did not abduct anybody, but of course you never believe them.
    Suddenly we were told on Sunday that the soldier was not kidnapped; he was dead. And so on Sunday nobody wants to talk about it anymore. The question is, how did Israel decide or determine that this young man was dead rather than not kidnapped? Did they know this when the president of the United States was accusing Hamas for taking him?
    Did they know it when they were retaliating by hitting Rafah?
    WHy all of a sudden has CNN no interest in the story? No more reports. Shouldn't you do a follow up to explain how a kidnapped soldier turned out to be not kidnapped?

    I want all the Israelites to say something different, all I have heard in the last few weeks is Hamas hides in schools, FINE! And some UN says they have warned then 18 times
    Ok say something else, Israel is just making themselves look like barbarians and very disrespectful to Hunan race

    Why is Erin attacking Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor for the killing of Gazan civilians when it is Hamas that is responsible for their deaths for using them as human shields. Where is the US criticism of terrorist Hamas for using their civilians as human shields and for their attempted murder of Israeli civilians with every rocket they fire?
    And why don't you call Hamas, terrorists? You don't fail to identify child abusers, as child abusers.

    Why won’t anyone report on the hundreds of tucks bringing food and medical supplies that are entering Gaza supplied by Israel?

    Why won’t anyone ask where are the relief supplies are from Hamas to their own citizens of Gaza are?

    Why won’t anyone ask where relief funds and supplies are from Qatar?

    Why won’t anyone report on the fact that all of the images coming out of Gaza are being controlled by Hamas? All reporters in Gaza are being controlled by Hamas, there is no democratic reporting.

    Why won’t anyone report on the luxury living of the heads of Hamas lounging in Qatar?

    Why isn’t anyone reporting on the money stolen by the heads of Hamas to fill their personal bank accounts?

    Why isn’t anyone reporting on the growing number of rockets fired at Israel? The count is over 3,100.

    Why isn’t anyone reporting on Hamas terrorizing their own citizens of Gaza, to keep control over them?

    Why are the democratic news outlets around this world allowing their reporting to be controlled by terrorists? What happened to investigative reporting?
