So during a cease-fire Hamas detonates a suicide bomb and grabs an IDF soldier and we're not supposed to call it a kidnapping? How about a "war crime?" In my 26 years of military service I always understood that a cease-fire means you stop fighting until the cease-fire is over. You don't detonate bombs, you don't fire rockets, and you don't grab your opponents. If you do, it's a violation of your oath. I'd say that "kidnapping" is too weak a word to describe what happened.Cease fire means pause in shooting at each other. They are still at war with each other, so grabbing another soldier is not a kidnapping but a capture of an enemy soldier, which may well be a breach in the cease fire.
Kidnapping sounds like the language the Israelis have been media trained to use, as talked about in my link in prior post.
