Hamas Cartoon Mocks Captured Israeli Soldier

Hamas TV in Gaza has broadcast a short animated
movie mocking an Israeli soldier captured by the militant Islamic
group three years ago.

Israeli media played excerpts of the movie Monday. It depicts
22-year-old Israeli Sgt. Gilad Schalit chained to a jail cell wall
pathetically pleading with a Palestinian boy to be set free.

The boy refuses, saying he has relatives in Israeli prisons.

Gaza militants captured the soldier in June 2006 after tunneling
into Israel. Two other soldiers were killed in the attack.

Schalit has not been seen since, and Hamas has prevented the Red
Cross from visiting him.

Egypt has been mediating attempts to arrange a swap of hundreds
of Palestinian prisoners for the soldier.
