Why is Hamas spokesman Abu Zuhri sitting in a TV studio instead of being a role model to "lead our people to death"

Approximately 100 out of more than 1,000 rockets fired on Israel in the past two weeks have exploded in Gaza, the IDF reported Tuesday.

When foreign media outlets. and Haaretz, show photo-ops of children and women wounded from explosions, they won’t mention that the victims may have been hit by none other than Hamas.

Twenty percent of Gazans now are without electricity following another Hamas rocket that hit a power line Tuesday evening, two days after a rocket knocked out electricity to part of the Gaza region.

So when foreign media report that Hamas is crying that the IDF has left its poor citizens without electricity, skip it.

The Israeli government has told Israel Electric Corp.(IEC) not to try to repair the damaged power lines because of the danger of being shot at by terrorists.

Any doubts that Hamas is on a suicide mission with what The Jewish Press has termed Operation death Wish were removed by Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri. He said in an interview on Hamas’ TV network Al Aqsa TV this week, “We aren’t leading our people today to destruction. We are leading them to death.” The video with English subtitles can be seen below.

Nearly 150 rockets were aimed at Israel on Tuesday, and two of them nearly killed Palestinian Authority Arabs in Hebron. Like most of the missiles and rockets fired on the rest of Israel, they landed in open areas.

Hamas celebrates over every attack. Will they dance in the streets if one of their rockets blows up Arabs in Hebron like they wounded Bedouin in Israel on Tuesday?
American journalist Jeffrey Goldberg wrote on Bloomberg News earlier this week, “Mahmoud Abbas, the sometimes moderate, often ineffectual leader of the Palestinian Authority, just asked his rivals in Hamas a question that other bewildered people are also asking: ‘What are you trying to achieve by sending rockets?’”
Goldberg suggested that the answer, given the facts on the ground the past week, is that “Hamas is trying to get Israel to kill as many Palestinians as possible.”
He explained, “Dead Palestinians represent a crucial propaganda victory for the nihilists of Hamas. It is perverse, but true. It is also the best possible explanation for Hamas’s behavior, because Hamas has no other plausible strategic goal here.”
Goldberg didn’t have to analyze the situation to draw that conclusion. All he to do was ask Abu Zuhri.

  1. Sorry Musa, the Arabs blew their chance to see Israel living within the 1948 borders when they launched a full scale war of annihilation. You know, back in 1948. Then they blew it again in ’67, by provoking yet ANOTHER idiotic war. Five armies, and still they couldn’t pull it off. Do you get the feeling you guys might want to rethink that whole “Allah’s on our side” attitude? If he is, he’s REALLY bad at military strategy.

  8. Yah it’s kind of a God thing! His word declares a undeserved curse won’t land on the intended victim but return to the one who sent it !!! I declare the word of The Lord God of host! confusion to the enemy camps… Let the weapons against Israel fail!! Be of no effect the enemy flee In the mighty name of JESUS!! Be rooted out never to take root or bear fruit again Rebuke the enemies of Israel! Amen

  9. Unfortunately we won’t be hearing about this particular disaster on our mainstream liberal news in the U.S! I turned off NBC tonight while their propaganda message was airing for those hurt in Gaza (I’m so sorry any civilian is being hurt and killed) while completely ignoring the fact that Israel did NOT bring this on themselves!!! Maybe the Palestinians should try and run Hamas and all the other people responsible for all the hatred toward Israel out, then maybe, just maybe the bombing would stop. But our lopsided press never brings that point up, they just drag the women and children in front of the cameras to gain sympathy for what Hamas and others are doing.
