Official PA daily: Israel is exploiting kidnapping for self-interest

Op-ed by the former editor of Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Hafez Al-Barghouti:
"The Israeli right doesn't care about the lives of the kidnapped [teens]; all it cares about is the kidnapping itself, in order to market and exploit it. It [the Israeli right] is determined at all costs to resolve the problem using military means in order to prove its new policy: no freeing of prisoners, no negotiations with the PA and no halting of settlement [construction]. If the kidnappers of their own free will were to release the settlers (i.e., the three kidnapped teens) now, the Israeli right would panic, and the war carnival it is now staging would be ruined; for it is interested in escalation and entanglement, not in resolving the crisis."
