Welcome to the new, peaceful Palestinian Gaza, where the Israelis have left and so now there is no reason for anyone to be anything but loving. From AP, :
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip “” Palestinian gunmen abducted two foreign teachers from an American school as they were driving north of Gaza City on Wednesday, witnesses said.
The foreigners were identified only as a Belgian and a Dutch. Their car was stopped by unidentified armed men who forced them into their vehicle and drove them to an unknown destination….
The kidnappings took place a day after a group of gunmen threatened to abduct foreigners if their demands to be folded into the Palestinian security services were not met. These armed men denied involvment in Wednesday’s kidnapping.
Militant groups have kidnapped foreigners in increasingly chaotic Gaza recently, usually as bargaining chips to get relatives released from Palestinian prisons, secure jobs from the Palestinian Authority or settle personal scores. The kidnappings have all been brief, and the hostages have all been released unhamred [sic].
That’s good. It would have been terrible for them to have been “hamred.”
