Hamas has castigated Twitter for closing its account, an action that it said “exposes the ‘unprofessional’ policy of the latest, and the total ‘bias’ to the Israeli occupation and real terrorism in the world,” according to the terrorist organization’s website.
Of course, Hamas says Israel is a terrorist organization, while Hamas, in its own words, is on a “humanitarian mission.”
Its charter calls for the destruction of Israel, so if that is its “humanitarian mission,” it has good company with Iran. But if that is the case, why is Mahmoud Abbas trying to bring Hamas back into a unity government with his Fatah party? After all, Abbas wants to make peace with Israel.
And if Hamas wants to destroy Israel, and Abbas wants to join up with Hamas, why is U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry calling Abbas a “peace partner”?
It is probably all part of a Zionist plot aimed at mocking Hamas, which said “Twitter seems subordinated to the American- pro-Israel organizations supporting terror against Palestinian people.”
Hamas is against the Kerry-sponsored talks, so everything Kerry must be a part of plot to prevent Hamas from “exposing Israel’s terror against Palestinian people.” Abbas probably is probably taking orders from President Obama to compromise Hamas’ principles.
But Hamas is optimistic it can succeed without Twitter.
“The big success we achieved in reflecting the real bright image of the Palestinian Resistance to the world pushed the terrorist entity ‘Israel’ and its allies towards the repeated suspension of our accounts on the social networks.
“ Twitter should understand that al-Qassam Brigades will never surrender and will keep exposing the real terrorism of Israel to the world and nobody can prevent us from practicing media activism on social networks because we believe along with millions of free people around the world in right to freedom of speech and expression.”
How can you Tweet that in 140 characters? Simple. “Hamas on humanitarian mission for state of suicide bombers.
