2 more Israelis are prisoners of Hamas in Gaza strip

It turns out there've been 2 more Israelis who were taken hostage by Hamas in Gaza, and the AP Wire still refuses to call the gang terrorists:
Two Israeli citizens are being held in the Gaza Strip, at least one of them by the Hamas militant group, Israeli authorities said Thursday.

The announcement, made after months of secrecy, raised memories of the case of Gilad Schalit, an Israeli soldier captured by Hamas in a cross-border raid and released five years later in a prisoner swap, or the deadly kidnappings of three Israeli teens by Hamas militants in the West Bank last summer.

But Thursday’s news was not accompanied by the nationwide panic that occurred with the previous two cases — perhaps because the two missing Israelis were not violently captured but also a reflection of a tense but quiet working relationship that has emerged between Israel and Hamas since a devastating war a year ago.

Avraham Mangisto, an Israeli of Ethiopian descent in his late 20s, “independently” crossed the border fence into the Gaza Strip on Sept. 7 last year, nearly two weeks after the end of the Israel-Gaza war, said the Israeli defence body responsible for Palestinian civilian affairs. It gave no further details of why he crossed into the Palestinian territory.

The Co-ordinator of Government Activities in the Territories said the second Israeli citizen being held in Gaza is a Bedouin Arab man from Israel’s Negev desert. Officials refused to say how long he has been held in Gaza or how he got there. They also would not say which group had him in custody.
Now they've even taken a man of black background prisoner? This is awful. And it's all because the government doesn't show the courage to raid Gaza by ground that this was able to happen.
