MEMRI grabbed a clipof the wonderful, peace-loving Hamas MP admitting (bragging, actually) about their use of women and children as human shields.
“[The enemies of Allah] do not know that the Palestinian people have developed [methods] of death and death-seeking,” Hamas parliamentarian, Fathi Hammad said in a speech televised on Hamas’ Al-Aksa television station two weeks ago.
“For the Palestinian people, death has become an industry, at which women excel, and so do all the people living on this land. The elderly excel at this, and so do the mujahideen and the children,” Hammad said.
“This is why they have formed human shields of the women, the children, the elderly, and the mujahideen, in order to challenge the Zionist [Israel] bombing machine. It is as if they were saying to the Zionist enemy: ‘We desire death like you desire life,'” he said.
I posted recently a couple of videos of them using these exact tactics. These animals have no value for human life. They care for their women and children only as propaganda tools to use against the enemy, and the women are quite okay with it. Why? Because they are raised with the hate from the time they are small children.
It’s in their textbooks, it’s in their television, it’s in their mosques. Is it any wonder they live to die?
Israeli authorities had this to say on the matter:
In a statement on its Web site, the Israeli Foreign Ministry accused Hamas of deliberately launching rockets from areas populated with civilians; using civilian homes to shield its arms and explosives manufacturing facilities; and using civilians as human shields at places where air strikes were anticipated.
“In order to avoid civilian casualties, Israel sends warning messages before attacking terrorist targets, advising civilians to leave. Israel prefers to attack empty buildings used to manufacture rockets, even taking into consideration that the terrorists too will be warned and their lives spared,” the Foreign Ministry said.
“Hamas, on the other hand, calls on civilians to come and to protect with their bodies the precise locations they expect Israel to attack. Since they know that Israel will usually strike from the air, they send the children to the roofs to prevent the air force from targeting that building.”
Well, yeah, when you call them to let them know you’re coming, and you know they use this tactic as propaganda against you, should that not be a hint? A teensy one to quit calling them and warning them you’re coming?
This is the Hamas that our great State Department actually has to ask us the question ‘should we engage Hamas in the Peace Process?‘ Between the ignorant fools in charge in Jerusalem, and the ones in charge in Washington, is it any wonder these monsters are winning the PR war despite their horrendous tactics?
