PA libel: Israel killed the kidnappers so they couldn’t tell truth of their innocence
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Oct. 25, 2014

 
Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the official PA daily and a member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza:
     “Several days ago, a driver from Jerusalem had a normal accident, the likes of which – and worse – occur [regularly] in Tel Aviv, and can happen a thousand times in Washington, New York, London, Paris or anywhere in the world. The accident occurred when a wheel of Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi’s car swerved. The car collided with several pedestrians, causing the death of an Israeli baby. According to witnesses present on the scene, Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi shouted as the car swerved, because he was losing control of the vehicle. Yet the Israeli police shot him, killing him immediately! ... Note that the accused was killed immediately in order [to ensure] that the truth would die with him. The same thing happened when the three Israeli youths were kidnapped on June 12 [2014]… From the outset, the Netanyahu government accused two Palestinians of committing the kidnapping operation – Al- [Marwan] Al-Qawasmi and [Amer] Abu Aisheh – and when the war ended, the accused were caught, and, by coincidence, were executed immediately, so that the truth would die with them.”

Notes: Abd Al-Rahman Al-Shaloudi – On Oct. 22, 2014, Al-Shaloudi drove his car into a light-rail station in Jerusalem, killing three-month-old Israeli-American Haya Zissel-Brown and Karen Mosquera, 22, of Ecuador, and injuring 7 others. He was shot by police while attempting to flee the scene, and later died of his wounds.

Marwan Al-Qawasmi and Amer Abu Aisheh – Hamas terrorists who kidnapped and murdered three Israeli youths on June 12, 2014: Eyal Yifrach,19, Gilad Shaar,16, and Naftali Frenkel,16. The Israeli boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. The two terrorists were killed on Sept. 23, 2014 during an exchange of fire with an Israeli army force that was attempting to arrest them.
