HA­MAS: ‘DEAD CIVIL­IANS PRIV­I­LEGED’

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

HA­MAS has been seek­ing to jus­tify the many civil­ian deaths in Gaza in order to shore up sup­port for its war.

Along­side pic­tures of dead civil­ians, a Ha­mas TV host ex­plained last week that since in Is­lam a person’s time of death is pre­de­ter­mined by Al­lah, the peo­ple who have been killed had ac­tu­ally “gained”. They will be mar­tyred in par­adise, the host said.

Mean­while, Is­raeli officials said that sev­eral Western jour­nal­ists work­ing in Gaza had been ha­rassed and threat­ened by Ha­mas for doc­u­ment­ing cases in which the ter­ror­ist group has in­volved civil­ians in war­fare against Is­rael. Ac­cord­ing to the pho­tog­ra­phers who had taken pic­tures of Ha­mas op­er­a­tives pre­par­ing to shoot rock­ets from within civil­ian struc­tures, and/or fight­ing in civil­ian cloth­ing, were then bul­lied and had their equip­ment taken away.
