Saving Corporal Shalit

It’s an image that the mainstream media working hand in hand with political movements is contorting itself not to say for fear of conferring any sort of compassion on the kidnapped soldier.

Examples of scare-quotes and attempts at revision from Electronic Inthifada:
When I first heard about the Israeli soldier who was "kidnapped" by Palestinians

Calling him a "man" and not a "soldier", however, confused me a bit.
