Gaza terror group accuses Israel of racism, tweeting ‘The real Israeli motto is: leave no Ashkenazi behind’. 

By Elior Levy, Itay Blumenthal |

Hamas has refused to confirm or deny Israel’s claim that it was holding two Israeli citizens captive, but had no problem to take a jab at the Israeli government and accusing it of racism in a tweet on Thursday.

“Obviously, the real Israeli motto is ‘leave no Ashkenazi man behind,'” one of Hamas’ Twitter accounts posted, seemingly pointing to the great public efforts Israel made to release IDF soldier Gilad Shalit from Hamas captivity, while the fact Avraham Mangisto from Ashkelon went into the Gaza Strip ten months ago was so far known only among the Ethiopian community.

At first, the leaders of the Israeli Ethiopians’ protest decided to keep quiet about Mangisto so as to not sabotage efforts to secure his release, but during the last demonstration, some protesters were seen wearing shirts with his name.

“We wanted to lay the groundwork gradually before the release to the media,” protest leaders told Ynet.

Even this morning, after the gag order was lifted and the news of Mangistro’s disappearance into Gaza became public, the leaders of the Israeli Ethiopians’ protest chose not to comment, honoring a request from the family.

Israel has in the past engaged in prisoner swaps with Hamas, most notably in 2011, when Gilad Shalit, a soldier abducted by militants in a cross-border raid in 2006, was released in exchange for more than 1,000 Palestinians held in Israeli jails.

Dozens of those ex-prisoners have been rounded up by Israel since, outraging Hamas, which signaled that until they were freed again it would refuse to respond to Thursday’s charge that it was holding two Israeli captives.

Israel is separately seeking the return of the remains of two soldiers killed during last year’s war with Hamas.

“There will be no talk about a prisoner swap before Israel releases all Palestinians who were re-arrested in the West Bank after they had been freed in the 2011 Shalit deal,” Mahmoud al-Zahar, a top Hamas official, told Reuters.
