Hamas: Now You See Them, Now You Don’t

Watching the news reminds me of when I was in Gaza.

I know that many people say that Israel bombs indiscriminately, but when you are on the ground there in the middle of a major operation, it is horrible. This is a picture I took of the American International School hit in Operation Cast Lead (2009). It was reported that Hamas was firing rockets from the school.

But, I’ll never forget one night, sitting in my apartment, watching television. It was warm so the patio door was left open, and I could see the building across the street from me. It was a huge house, 5 stories high, so there were tons of windows. Suddenly, enough light reflected off those windows to totally light up my flat like it was daytime. The boom I heard was so loud – I was terrified. I jumped straight into the air and came down crying – I didn’t know what was happening. It was then that I learned that Hamas had a facility about 3 blocks away and Israel had hit it. The night was subsequently quiet, so I was sure the intended target was hit.

What amazed me was the fact that this Hamas facility was so close to a “non-Hamas” neighborhood. It is not a secret and this is a common practice and I’m telling you, it’s frightening. Of course, my first thought was “Why is Israel bombing this neighborhood?” Then I was told about the Hamas facility. Yes, they do tuck their operations into residential areas and let civilians endure the consequences.

As soon as the facility was hit, there was no further bombing that night.

  1. Amazing how the world can see only what Israel does and not how Islam provokes those acts. It is all one sided and the world sees the wrong side.

  2. Neil Fanous says:

    What a thing to say, did Jews provoke nazis to gas them? You are insane.

  3. Islam is everywhere these days, it has begun its attacks everywhere. Some attacks are subtle the demand to ignore local law and obey only Sharia, so sneaky, it soon has the rest of us going to jail for blaspheming Sharia and our own law being replaced by The Sharia.

  4. Jean Bedel says:

    Muslims fight christians, jews, hindust, buddhist and at the end they fight each other, that’s how they are.

  5. Neil Fanous says:

    Israel has attacked every one of its neighbours since it was created … That’s the truth and that’s why it has so many enemies …

  6. Fatma Jaber says:

    Palestinians are Muslim and Christian and in this dispute they are on the same side. Try not to be so ignorant.

  7. Jean Bedel says:

    Maybe, but i have never seen a palestinian christian bombing himself. Did u?

  8. Fatma Jaber says:

    Do you know any Palestinians?

  9. Jean Bedel says:

    Did u ever see a christian palestinian bombing himself in the name religion? Did u?

  10. Michael Hart says:

    I do and the Christians aren’t strapping bombs to themselves… That’s the Muslims

  11. Karen Bryant says:

    Israel is honorable. Even while Gazan bombs are being dropped on them daily they are allowing food to be delivered to them.

  12. Fatma Jaber says:

    Really, Michael? Have you had a conversation with a Palestinian about this issue? If you did, then you would know the truth of the matter.

    Don’t be so ignorant. It is not doing you any good. Have some decency for humanities sake.

  13. Fatma Jaber says:

    Ignorance at its finest. Are you okay, Karen?

  14. Benzy Cohen says:

    Decency for humanities sake? Like not celebrate the kidnap and murder of three teens? Not name streets after murderers? Like that?

  15. Benzy Cohen says:

    Fatma, you never rebut what people are saying. Bring a counterpoint.

  16. Janet Kingan says:

    So what are you saying, Neil? Israel was greeted with candy and rose petals by their neighbors?

  17. Adou Abel says:

    When you shoot me at my head, why do you expect from me to shoot you at you feet…?

    If hamas launch indiscriminately, why do you want that ISRAEL does discriminately?

  18. Fatma Jaber says:

    Hi, Benzy! I hope that you are doing well.

    Yeah, I don’t argue with ignorance. However, you talked about the kidnapping and killing of three men in your last comment. I decided to share with you a video on what Corporate Media isn’t telling the world. Check out the video by clicking on the following https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=rJ3UZxWAcfw

    I am pretty sure that even this video won’t convince you because ignorance is closed minded and stubborn.

  24. Benzy Cohen says:

    You are the epitome of the pot calling the kettle black.
    Let’s talk honestly. Have you condemned the thousands of civilian murders of Muslims at the hands of other Muslims? Do you not believe that you are mandated to hate Jews?

  25. Neil crawl back into your cave * you OBVIOUSLY have no real knowledge about this subject because your comment would be quite different if you knew the whole truth. I pick sides based on ALL the information not just the pity party band wagon. I feel badly for all homeless and displaced peoples regardless of religion or culture but the Jews have been displaced for years and they have a right to defend land that was theirs 3000 years before you were born and a right to defend it. If you were shooting at me I’d shoot back.

  26. Fatma, perhaps the Christian and Muslim Palestinians are on the same side for now but as soon as this dispute is over (if it ever is) the Muslims will murder all the Christians too. Right now it’s convenient to have them on their side. Mohamed was an excellent negotiator if he had to be but as soon as he was able to exert his will and power, the bloodshed began without mercy. The rest of humanity has to expect Muslims will follow that practice.

  27. Fatma Jaber says:

    Hi, Tennille.

    Please show me any proof of this from the Quran or Sunnah? You have no proof. You are speaking ignorance. If you can speak about Mohammed so confidently, then please show some proof from the Quran or Sunnah. Thanks.

    P.S. Try not to be so ignorant.

  28. Fatma Jaber says:

    Tennille, hypocrisy doesn’t suit you. You clearly don’t have all the information. Please educate yourself. It will only make you a better human being. Thanks.

  29. Karen Bryant says:

    Fatma is either a troll or totally ignorant.

  30. Benzy Cohen says:

    Just don’t expect Fatma to educate you, all she has are insults.
    Fatma, what information are we missing?
    According to Islam we can only be better human beings if we convert, willingly or not. Isn’t that so?

  31. Not to mention that Christians in the PA and every other Muslim country are being persecuted. Anyone who can get out does. All of the propaganda in the world doesn’t change that stubborn fact.

  32. Fatma Jaber says:

    Hey, Benzy.

    Why haven’t you replied to my other comments? Dumbfounded?

    That is not so. Anyhow, so that you appear credible, what proof do you have from the Quran and Sunnah that says your statement of: “According to Islam we can only be better human beings if we convert, willingly or not. Isn’t that so?”

  33. Btw repeatedly calling anyone you disagree with ignorant doesn’t say much for you.

  34. Gayla Ber says:

    I’m sorry… WHAT?!

  35. Gayla Ber says:

    @Karen. Or both

  36. Fatma Jaber says:

    Robin, show your proof. What are you talking about? Christians and Muslims get along very well.

    Christianity is all over the Muslim world, so please prove to me where Christians are being persecuted in any Muslim country. Can you find proof of this going on today?

    Do you even know what the term ignorant means, Robin?

    P.S. Try not to be arrogantly ignorant. It will benefit you greatly. Thanks.

    I am neither. It seems as though you are the ignorant one though.

  40. Fatma Jaber says:

    You read that right, Gayla.

  41. Fatma Jaber says:

    You read that right, Gayla.

  42. Fatma Jaber says:

    Gayla, being mean won’t make you any better. I am not a troll and I am not ignorant.

  43. Fatma Jaber says:

    Gayla, being mean won’t make you any better. I am not a troll and I am not ignorant.

  44. Gayla Ber says:

    If you are not ignorant, why not prove it by offering counterpoint.

  45. Gayla Ber says:

    If you are not ignorant, why not prove it by offering counterpoint.

  46. Fatma Jaber says:

    Gayla, your question is not well thought out. It’s okay though, I can’t expect too much from a small minded zionist. Anyhow, how about you prove to me how I am ignorant? I am not ignorant in this matter, so you will have a tough time coming up with an argument.

  47. Jean Bedel says:

    Fatma. Muslims(boko haram) are killing poor innoncents in Nigeria, El shabab in kenya, in Mali. If Israel was a weak country, you wouldn’t give them any chance of negotiation, fortunatly they’re strong.

  48. Jean Bedel says:

    And i pray God to keep them strong. God bless Israel.

  49. Fatma Jaber says:

    Jean, Zionists are killing Christians and Muslims in Palestine as we speak.

    Don’t you know that God is just. God will be just with all people. Christians and Muslims are praying for the safety of all Palestinians. I am among them. God bless Palestine and the Palestinian people. Moreover, May God bless the Jews against zionism.

  50. Jean Bedel says:

    The current situation is politique, Israel trying to avoid the no war-no peace situation, which will be a victory for Hamas. It’s sad to see so many people dying. The difference is, they don’t fight Hamas because they are muslims.

  51. Gayla Ber says:

    If you claim you are not ignorant, then do me a favour. Cite specific examples of Israel attacking its neighbors since its “creation”.

  52. I stand with israel

  53. Marie Parker says:

    Hamas shouldn’t put their bases next to innocent people where they know it is hard for Israel to strike without causing harm to the innocent. Hey have been very patient and they warn the people to move. So maybe the PA needs to do something to help their own people. Besides the innocent people will be better off when they don’t have Islamist Radicals threatening them too.

  54. Karen Bryant says:

    Praying for Israel and innocent Arabs that are being used by Hamas and P A.

  55. Fatma Jaber says:

    Jean, you seem to have gone off on an incomprehensible tangent. What are you trying to convey? However, you are correct, it’s quite unfortunate to see many people dying.

    Anyhow, have a good day. Please read and look into this matter at a deeper level.

  56. Fatma Jaber says:

    Gayla, you avoided my question. I was right, you had a tough time coming up with an argument. Anyhow, I will give you another try. Answer my question and then I will decide on whether or not I want to do you any favors.

  57. Jean Bedel says:

    Fatma. Have a good day too, i didn’t mean to be offended but that how i see it.

  58. Fatma Jaber says:

    I can’t even blame you, Jean. You are fed misinformation in the media. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through Facebook.

    Thanks. Good-bye.
