Israel Lifts Gag Order on Capture of 2 Israelis – an Ethiopian and a Bedouin Israeli
On Sunday I wrote about the gag order that Israel had placed on news of the capture, by Hamas, of Averu Mengistu, an Israeli Ethiopian. What is the Difference Between Gilad Shalit and Avera Mengistu? One is White the other is Black
On the Mint Press web site, where Richard Silverstein had broken the story I wrote:
TIME FOR ZIONISTS TO EAT HUMBLE PIE
Q. Why won't Hamas announce they captured an Israeli?
A. B/c it isn't true
Q. Does Israel leave only alleged 'blacks' captives?
A. Elhanan Tannenbaum, a white Ashkenazi was Hezbollah captive for over 3 years.
Harvela If his lips moved he's lying . Much like you Greenstein
KilkulOlam This gag order can be just another dilution of Silverstein. He has no proof this actually exist. He just says so. This whole article is full of anti-Israel propaganda in the usual Silverstien tradition. If he truly believes in what he writes about Mengistu.....
Let us hope that KilkulOlam has the honesty to admit he was comprehensively wrong and apologise.
Harvey Garfield, being a friend of every anti-Jewish fascist, has long ago shed every ounce of moral decency, including the ability to discern the truth.
See The Times of Israel 9.7.15. Hamas holding two Israelis hostage in Gaza for months
Since the Israeli courts have now lifted the gag order, after an application by Ha’aretz, (whose own role in this affair has been atrocious) it appears that there is a second Israeli captive. He is an Israeli Bedouin i.e. an Arab god forbid and clearly doesn’t count as a genuine citizen of Israel. We cannot expect any efforts on the Israeli government’s behalf to get him released. I mean, he’s not even Jewish!
The most disgraceful aspect of all is the utter bankruptcy and cowardice of Wikipedia which REMOVED an article on the capture of two Israelis by Hamas, because of the determination of Israeli Wikipedia to preserve their government’s censorship.
