Former kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit's father Noam said Wednesday that
if he was Palestinian he would try to kidnap IDF soldiers.
Schalit, who is running for a Knesset seat with the Labor Party,
paraphrased former Labor leader Ehud Barak, who shocked many people when
he told anti-Israel activist Gideon Levy in a 1998 interview that if he
were Palestinian, he would have joined a terrorist organization.
“We also kidnapped British soldiers when we were fighting for our
freedom,” Schalit said in an interview with Channel 10, referring to
pre-state Zionist paramilitary organizations during the British mandate.
