Hamas Recruits ‘Suicide Donkeys’ to Fight Against Israel

It's unbelievably cruel on a variety of levels. At least adult human shields have a choice.

Hamas terrorists have pity on no one. Not their wives, not their children. Not even their donkeys.

In their latest creative attempt to attack Israelies, Gaza’s terrorist rulers are recruiting ‘suicide donkeys.’ This weekend, they sent a donkey wearing a explosive pack on a suicide mission.

Donkeys are a common method of transportation throughout Gaza, Judea and Samaria, and are also used by Arabs to transport goods from market to home. They are a common sight along the highways of Israel, particularly around the south and in the rural areas of the north and Jerusalem.

That makes the newest method of terrorism even more dangerous.

On Friday night, one poor animal was sent towards an IDF position night near the town of Rafah, straddling the Gaza border with Egypt.

Israeli soldiers, who had received prior intelligence the terrorists would attempt precisely this tactic, were forced to fire at the animal and blow him up.

It’s unbelievably cruel on a number of levels; for the animal, of course – but especially the soldiers who were forced to fire at the donkey. The visual impact is particularly traumatic and the emotional pain is almost as bad, when a young soldier is forced to shoot a donkey and then watch him explode, knowing the creature was helpless to prevent his fate at either end.

The terrorist who devised this method – which is a variant of the ‘human shield’ – is an expert at psychological warfare, someone with a psychopathological streak. If and when he is ever taken into custody, this is one who should join the list of “life without parole forever.”
