Roi Kais of Ynetnews.com reports, "Hamas Interior Ministry tells
Gaza locals to stay in their homes despite Israeli phone calls,
leaflets, and the ‘knock on the roof' procedure urging them to
The "knock on the roof procedure", Israeli Air Force fires a small
round at the roof of a targeted structure signaling residents to
evacuate before the real strike.
Hamas Interior Ministry, on the other hand, issues commands for the
residents of Gaza to remain in their homes despite Israeli messages to
evacuate. Arutz Sheva reports, "The Hamas-run Palestinian Authority
Interior Ministry told Gaza residents the Israeli messages "are designed
to weaken our resolve and to sow panic and fear among us, in light of
the failures of our enemies. We call on Gaza residents not to pay
attention to these messages and not to leave their homes."
In other words, those who decide to flee their homes when Israel gives them the chance to do so, could be labeled as traitors and therefore face a fate far worse than Israeli bombs.
Hamas terrorists have learned that sacrificing their own Palestinian
people and marketing their corpses to the world media represents an
effective public relations tool.
We have all seen the pictures of Palestinians parading the bloody
corpses of women and children in front of the international press, who
then predictably report the carnage as Israeli barbarism against
civilians. What's rarely reported though are Israel's repeated efforts
warning civilians to leave the targeted area prior to an attack.
Jihad Made Simple To Understand
For those of us in the West, the calculated sacrifice of civilians is instinctively repulsive and morally reprehensible.
Comprehending the concept of Jihad is essential to understand why our ‘western values' are not compatible with Islamic Law.
Islamic law as written in Reliance Of The Traveller, o9.3 p.601 states,
"Jihad is personally obligatory for
everyone able to perform it, male or female, old or young, when the
enemy has surrounded the Muslims. For non-Muslim forces entering Muslim
lands is a weighty matter that cannot be ignored, but must be with
effort and struggle to repel them by every possible means."
Every possible means" validates the use of Palestinian human shields in Islamic doctrine and theology.
Palestinian Media Watch reports, "In a striking talk on Hamas TV,
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."
In this viral MEMRI TV video,
Egyptian TV hosts slam Hamas.
Khaled Mash'al exercising at a gym: You can see how Khaled is waging Jihad in Qatar. Mash'al eating a lavish meal: This is brother Khaled Mash'al's version of Jihad. Khaled, the Jihad is in Gaza...
Mash'al watching TV: Or, of course, he is watching
their TV channel. This is the Jihad of Khaled Mash'al and his comrades,
the honorable and great mujahideen. As they wage this sort of Jihad,
they abandon the people to get killed. If you were a real
man, you would be back in Gaza first thing tomorrow morning.
Haniya sitting next to a blond young woman: This is his Jihad,
Allah be praised... This is the greatest Jihad performed by Isamil
Haniya and his brothers in Hamas.
Talk show host Mazher Shahin says of the Hamas leadership namely Khaled Mash'al and Ismail Haniya:
You know where the border between Israel and
Palestine is. If there is a real man among you, I am willing to drive
him in my own car and at my own expense to the Gaza border. I will drop
him there and say: "Go. May Allah be with you. Gaza is there. Jihad
awaits you. Go in and show us you're a real man."
They goad people into
fighting, terrorism, and violence, under the pretext of "Jihad," while
they themselves sit at a hotel, a swimming pool, or a nudist beach,
eating a variety of dishes, marrying four wives, and driving the latest
model luxury cars. What is this?! What kind of men are you?
These Hamas leaders are quick to kill their own women and children in
the name of Allah, but are cowards fighting their Jihad from luxury
hotels outside of Gaza. This is the nature of Hamas and they bring shame
on their families, tribes, and Allah.
The Night The Lights Went Out In Gaza
In a strange case of irony a Hamas rocket landed in Kissufim and
knocked out power to 70,000 Gazans in Khan Younis and Dir Elbalach. How
sad for the Palestinian's in Gaza that Hamas can't produce their own
electricity and have to rely on Israel for one of their most basic
Even a child knows that if Israel stopped providing the Gaza Strip
with water and electricity it would be a non-lethal incentive prompting
the people of Gaza to demand Hamas to stop firing rockets at Israel.
Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu killed the idea saying the lawyers
won't permit it.
Thanks to Hamas ineptness, they knocked out their only electricity
source and did what Netanyahu refused to do for humanitarian reasons.
Meanwhile, Israel is still sending 10-15 trucks daily with food and
medicine into Gaza despite rocket attacks. A few days later Israel did
the necessary repairs and turned the electricity back on in Gaza.
Former 'Al-Quds Al-Arabi' Editor Abd Al-Bari Atwan: The Arab Leaders
Are Praying That Israel Will Get Rid Of The Palestinians Once And For
Following are excerpts from an interview with Abd Al-Bari Atwan,
former editor-in-chief of Al-Quds Al-Arabi, which aired on Mayadeen TV
on July 14, 2014:
Abd Al-Bari Atwan: "The vast majority of the countries participating
in [the Arab League] summit consider Hamas to be a terrorist
organization. These countries pray - all those foreign ministers are
praying - that Israel will manage to get rid of Hamas once and for all.
They support the Israeli planes bombing the Gaza Strip under the pretext
of getting rid of Hamas and stopping the missiles.
"Is it conceivable that such an 'urgent' meeting is convened only 7-8
days after the Israeli air raids on the Gaza Strip began?! Why did it
take them so long? The reason was that they wanted to give the Israeli
planes and tanks the opportunity to invade Gaza and destroy the
resistance. There are 18 resistance movements in Gaza. It's not only
"They took their time to allow Israel to destroy the resistance once
and for all. This meeting was summoned by Kuwait. Why didn't Palestinian
President Mahmoud Abbas summon it, and from day one? The reason is that
he does not want the Arabs to convene. He does not want them to decide
that this aggression must be stopped.
"Yitzhak Rabin once said that he hoped to wake up one day and see
Gaza had sunk into the sea. By God, the Arab regimes and leaders have
outdone Rabin in this. They would like the West Bank, the Gaza Strip,
and the entire Palestinian people to sink into the sea with no
