Hamas belittles “defeatist” Palestinians who criticize high civilian death toll

“In 1945, in a single day in Algeria, 45,000 Algerians died.
In a single day. It wasn’t described in Algeria’s history as forsaking the blood of the Algerians, as some defeatists are describing today the number of Martyrs as ‘trading with Palestinian blood and forsaking Palestinian blood’… We are not leading our people to execution…
We are leading them to death [OOPS!]- I mean, to confrontation.”
–[Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri]

Hamas and Fatah defend demands that Palestinians act as human shields:

Hamas:

“[Israel] has been sending tens of thousands of voice messages to citizens’ phones…asking them to evacuate their homes by a certain time…

There is no reason to be concerned by them or pay attention to them and by no means should they be heeded.”
– [Hamas Ministry of Interior spokesman's Facebook page]

Fatah:

“[Fatah] Central Committee member [Amal Hamad] said the occupation has distributed letters to citizens residing near the border area, ordering them to evacuate their homes. She emphasized that the citizens will not respond to these letters, will not leave their homes”

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik:

Hamas’ recurring demands that its civilian population remain in war zones, and Hamas’ need to justify these demands to the Palestinian people, indicate that there may be growing popular dissatisfaction with Hamas’ policy of using civilians as human shields to protect Hamas fighters and infrastructure in Gaza.

In a striking talk on Hamas TV, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri belittled the Palestinians who are counting the “number of Martyrs,” calling them “defeatists.” He argued that those “defeatists” should consider the current situation in light of the history of Algeria, which he said lost 45,000 people in one day in 1945. He then made a slip of the tongue in speaking about the population in Gaza: “We are leading them to death,” he said, then quickly corrected himself: “I mean, to confrontation.”

“The resistance (i.e., Hamas) is truly glorifying our people and our nation. We are paying a price, but we remember our brothers in Algeria, who had at least a million and half Martyrs… In 1945, in a single day in Algeria, 45,000 Algerians died. In a single day. It wasn’t described in Algeria’s history as forsaking the blood of the Algerians, as some defeatists are describing today the number of Martyrs as ‘trading with Palestinian blood and forsaking Palestinian blood’… We are not leading our people to execution as we stand by and look on. No. We are leading them to death – I mean, to confrontation.

Palestinian Media Watch’s conclusion that there is Palestinian dissatisfaction with Hamas policy is supported by findings of a poll in Gaza published yesterday by David Pollock of the Washington Institute, who reported that “70 percent of the poll respondents agreed or strongly agreed with the statement ‘Hamas should maintain a ceasefire with Israel in both Gaza and the West Bank.’” An Egyptian-brokered ceasefire was accepted by Israel yesterday for several hours, but rejected by Hamas, who continued rocket attacks.

Despite loss of life and growing opposition, Hamas continues to order civilians to stay in their homes and act as human shields, contrary to Israeli warnings to vacate the area:

dont evacuate

“An important and urgent call to our people:

In the past hours, the occupation has once again been sending tens of thousands of voice messages to citizens’ phones, especially in the border regions, requesting they evacuate their homes by a certain time.

We emphasize that these are arbitrary calls, not intended for specific people. There is no reason to be concerned by them or pay attention to them; and by no means should they be heeded. They are part of the psychological war, and their purpose is to sow confusion on the home front…

We emphasize that for eight years, the occupation has failed in its psychological war against our people and that it will fail again in view of our people’s resolve and awareness.”
–[Facebook page of Hamas Ministry of Interior spokesman Iyad Al-Buzum, July 15, 2014]

Even Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad issued a statement demanding Palestinian civilians act as human shields:

“Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad said there is real partnership, [both] on the political level and on the ground, between all organizations and national activity factions in the Gaza Strip, as they have established a joint war room since the beginning of the Israeli aggression…: [Hamad] said the occupation has distributed letters to citizens residing near the border area, ordering them to evacuate their homes. She emphasized that the citizens will not respond to these letters, will not leave their homes, and will continue to stand firm in the face of this malicious attack, until the arrogance of the occupation falls.” (Emphasis added)
–[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 12, 2014]

All week, Hamas has been encouraging civilians to defend buildings with their bodies. Palestinian Media Watch has also reported on Hamas’ policy of using civilians as human shields in previous conflicts.

Human shielding involves the intentional placement of innocent civilians in harms way in order to protect the lives of combatants. Hamas terrorists in the Gaza Strip incorporate human shielding into their strategy when it comes to the terror fight against Israel.

Al Qaeda Magazine Calls For Car Bomb Attacks In NY, DC, LA & Chicago “Places Flooded With People”

July 16, 2014 at 8:46 pm

 

Decimated.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The latest edition of al Qaeda‘s English-language online magazine urges its readers to attack the United States with car bombs and includes a photo of Times Square.

The terrorist organization’s magazine, Inspire, specifically mentions New York, Los Angeles, Washington and Chicago as preferred targets, WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb reported.

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Wednesday the website calls for its readers to act as “lone wolf” terrorists.

“It certainly is an issue that we will continue to stay focused on,” Bratton said. “It is a magazine that is very widely read by that world.”

The magazine also advises potential terrorists to attack places holding lots of people, CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported.

“As for the field  target for the car bomb,” the magazine advises, “you have places flooded with individuals e.g. Sports events in which tens of thousands attend, election campaigns, festivals and other gathering(s). The important thing is that you target people and not buildings.”

“This is typical of al Qaeda’s targeting, which is to kill as many people as possible,” said John Miller, the NYPD’s deputy police commissioner for intelligence.

……
Miller told CBS News the magazine edition is “one-stop shopping for an amateur terrorist.”

“What it talks about is targeting … specific places, specific targets, specific events, but it goes beyond that call, and it says, ‘and by the way, here is a simple set of instructions for a car bomb that you can make with essentially, you know, a trip to a big-box hardware store and a couple of chemicals,’” said Miller, a former CBS News senior correspondent.

Gaza: Hamas Rocket Accidentally Destroys Power Line 70K Without Power

July 13, 2014 at 7:23 pm

Karma bites.

(Arutz Sheva) –Seventy thousand Gazans from Khan Younis and Deir el-Balah were in the dark Sunday night after a Hamas rocket hit the power line that supplies electricity to those places. It’s not clear when Israel Electric Company workers will be able to repair the system, but they are apparently in no rush to do so. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has asked the IEC not to risk the lives of its employees in trying to restore power to the affected sector in Gaza, an operation that could take hours.

As Operation Protective Edge enters its seventh day, many Israelis are demanding that the country take more aggressive action against Hamas in order to put a halt to the seemingly endless missile attacks from Gaza. One suggestion that has come up numerous times – including from MKs and Ministers like Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon – is cutting off electricity to Gaza,which Israel is still supplying. The Hamas missile, which hit one of the high tension wires that move power from Israel to Gaza, apparently made that a moot point, at least partially.

The Palestinian Authority currently owes the Israel Electric Company NIS 1.5 billion ($525 million) in unpaid bills for electricity. An examination of that debt by business daily Globes shows that the relative amount owed by Gaza was NIS 220 million ($62 million).

Last month, the IEC filed a petition with the High Court demanding to be allowed to shut off electricity to the Palestinian Authority until the debt was paid – or to allow the IEC to seize customs and aid payments collected on behalf of the PA to pay off its debt. That case is still pending.

Pali irony: The PA steals electricity from the Israel Electric Company, but they don’t skimp when it comes to purchasing/building rockets to attack Israel –the same rockets that took out power for 70,000 in Gaza.

BBC: Gaza Supporters Tweet False #GazaUnderAttack Images

July 9, 2014 at 8:47 am

Deceptive social media islamic paliwood propaganda.

(Haaretz) –The BBC has warned that Palestinians in Gaza and their supporters are using false images on Twitter to garner sympathy for their cause.

Many of the images that supposedly show Gaza under bombardment over the past week are neither current nor from Gaza, the global news organization wrote.

“Some of the images are of the current situation in Gaza,” the BBC said, “but a #BBCtrending analysis has found that some date as far back as 2009 and others are from conflicts in Syria and Iraq.”
……
“Over the past week the hashtag #GazaUnderAttack has been used hundreds of thousands of times, often to distribute pictures claiming to show the effects the airstrikes.” [...]
