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 evacuate."
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,
"Every possible means" validates the use of Palestinian human shields in Islamic doctrine and theology."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."
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.
