West Bank - Israeli forces operating in the West Bank distributed candy to Palestinians along with a note denouncing Hamas and wishing them an easy Ramadan fast, the Palestinian news agency Ma’an is reporting.

Palestinians reported on Sunday that IDF soldiers in Nablus handed out lollipops which were affixed to a note which read: “Since Hamas is making your lives bitter, here are some sweets.”

The army has been conducting sweeps all across the West Bank, including in Nablus, for the past two weeks in search of three kidnapped teenagers.

In response to the Palestinian reports, the IDF stated that it was not familiar with the incident.

Of course this won't work. It was a stupid move. The IDF should have given out candy with a simple Ramadan message- no politics. No one will decide Hamas is bad because they get a message on a candy wrapper. However, if they start seeing the IDF, Israelis, and Jews as human beings, perhaps a few hearts will be softened.

The IDF should give out steak salad and indicate that with Hamas, it may be the last decent meal you ever get.
