Jordanian Journalist: Kidnapped Teens Are Actually Soldiers


When discussing the kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers by Hamas terrorists, a Jordanian journalist recently claimed in a talk show that “there are no children in Israel” and that the kidnapped teens are, in fact, soldiers.

The journalist, Bassam Badareen, a former head of the Jordanian bureau of the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper, further claimed that the IDF and the residents of Judea and Samaria "are experts in smuggling weapons and drugs, in spreading prostitution, and in sowing corruption among the Palestinians."

The remarks were made on the Jordanian Roya TV channel and were translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
