Safe From Hamas, Italian Reporter Reveals Truth About Gaza

Gaza children are hurt and killed when terrorists try to do the same to Israel's children instead.

Far from the camera’s eye, Gaza’s children are injured and sometimes even die, every time Hamas terrorists misfire a missile intended to kill other children in Israel.

But operatives quickly scramble into the scene and clear away the debris from the failed launch, before international cameras are able to snap a shot of the bloody mess.

Reporters are warned and sometimes roughed up. Photographers too. They understand the deal; they’ve been through this before and they know the rules of the region.

In Syria, dozens have died.

Italian journalist Gabriele Barbati, however, swallowed his fear and waited for the opportunity to tell the truth. When he left Gaza, he took his morals along with him and posted that truth in a tweet on the Twitter social networking site.

Out of #Gaza far from #Hamas retaliation: misfired rocket killed children yday in Shati. Witness: militants rushed and cleared debris

The reference is to an alleged attack on the Al-Shati “refugee camp” and the Al-Shifa hospital in Gaza, both of which were blamed on Israel. An Iranian-made long-range Fajr rocket misfired upon launch at the Al-Shifa hospital, killing and injuring numerous civilians shortly after 5pm on July 28, including many children.

Within 30 hours, 2,395 people had re-tweeted his post and 703 had marked it a ‘favorite.’

“Thank you for telling the world the truth – please continue!” responded one person. “Tx. For truth. The NBC News reporter claimed footage of an Israeli drone attack,” wrote another.

A writer named “Ahmed” responded, “Ohhhh, children killers… you are trying your best to fabricate stories and create imaginary evidences!” Similarly, another asked “how much idf (sic) paid you to “report” this?”

Another, tagged ‘TerrorTunnel’ wrote back, ‘this sounds incredibly biased…hopefully you can provide evidence instead of tweeting to [the IDF spokesperson]”

A more cautious writer warned, “Please stay safe! Hamas isn’t confined to Gaza. & thank you for reporting the truth, you are a very brave individual.”

That last is a good point. Hamas has ‘offices’ around the world, as does the Lebanon-based Hezbollah terrorist organization, which are used for fund raising as well as various other purposes. Just as Hezbollah has taught Hamas new ways of waging war against Israel, so too it is becoming obvious that Hamas may also learn from the Shi’ite terror group how to carry out attacks abroad.

    Wow. Theres a misleading news from bbc that israel fired …

  11. Pankaj Gupta says:

    More palestian are killed by hamas than isreal

  12. The blood of innocents is always on your hands. You should have opposed evil instead of joining it. Choice was yours Meer Iqbal. My God is a good God. He will take the children to eternity in a good place. Not so you adults who allowed it.

  13. But nobody will read this.

  14. The point here, I think, is that (a) the truth is being distorted. (b) this truth does not change the morality of the equation. Both “sides” engage in informational warfare. Both sides willfully and accidentally kill civilians. Both sides attempt to portray the latter deaths as the fault of the other… Finding out that a few instances of death resulted from the collateral damages of technological mishaps does nothing to change the true nature of the conflict.

  15. DixieVangelisti says:

    A brave man. Thank GOD for that. Hamas is now executing anyone that shows discontent with them. ISIS in Iraq is doing the same thing. These men have the brains of serial killers. It’s an addiction rush.

  16. DixieVangelisti says:

    UN and the world are believing the perpetrators who habitually lie. Weird!!!! BUT YA always wins.

  17. The TRUTH!! Wake up people!!!!

    Sheila, I am a goy. I shall refrain from saying that I ‘understand’ you pain – I know in my heart of hearts that 2000 years of persecution and vile murder cannot possibly be understood. However, I do wish to say that your comment made me very sad: throwing all of us goyim into the same pot, is not fair. With Love from Cape Town – B.

  38. AskAbigail319 says:

    And check out what is happening in Libya. Extreme violence is hijacking the revolution of the people. The Islamists did not win the election and are going on a rampage,

  39. JennySmith224 says:

    oliviaantoniaevangelista1974 shut up and quit spamming! The Bible tells us ALL who owns Israel and her boundary. Israel gave up land to make the Palestine’s a home which that have not been appreciative but combative since. They deserve nothing short of total annihilation after this last round with all the tunnels and pansy ass whining and genociding their own people. Go AWAY.

  40. JennySmith224 says:

    God Bless Israel and Bibi!

  41. MeiraHertzberg says:

    Brigitte de Kroon I apologize for Sheila’s insensitivity. All Jews are not the same, all goyim are not the same. All Palestineans are not the same. . .

  42. LynnMagnuson099 says:

    THAT keeps up and Hamas will end up in the same place as the Nazis did … before an International Court. And the sooner the better. For crimes against humanity.

  43. LynnMagnuson099 says:

    Brigitte de Kroon The Righteous come in all ethnicities and all nations, and so do the wicked. We are simply human. I’m praying for the safety of Isrealis and innocent victims in Gaza as well. Praying for Peace.

  44. EdnaMalkaDuskin says:

    In my opinion The UN and the reporters are terrorists. They always side with the Palestinians and portray Israel in very ugly colors. The media never bothers to show the human side of Israel and help all the anti-Semite ride the wave of hates for Jews and Israel.
    Israel is a state that preach for peace, while Islam calls to kill or convert anyone who is not Muslim. Through out history we can see that Muslims bring hates and destruction and the ones who try to stop it are being killed. As an Israeli Jew , my heart breaks for both sides. Palestinians need to get rid of Hamas and let us build trust in order to give them their state. We can live in peace, no need for hate. We all love our children and want to live them in a better world <3

  45. BobbisueJones says:

    He needs to get on every news station there is and blast this information out there

  46. IrwinGraulich says:

    This is an important article with regard to Israel’s war ethics including what to say to those accusing Israel of killing innocent civilians, non proportional responses, collective punishment and war crimes.

    http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/israeli-war-ethics/

  47. BobbisueJones says:

    The Palestinians are afraid for their lives, some have already been killed for protesting against Hamas. We need support around the world from all governments and protection for the Palestinians.I don’t believe they should have the state of Israel, but I think maybe and that is a strong maybe if they had an honest leader they would live in peace with Israel . UN needs to help get Hamas out of Gaza.

  48. EllaHamilton says:

    Menorah Living , Good idea, she can take Penelope and Javier with her…

  49. EllaHamilton says:

    Brigitte de Kroon , i totally agree with you, shame on you Sheila. you are very bad for Israel PR…shame on you!!!

  50. AnatShabo says:

    Elizabeth McFarland !!! you’re an ignorant, Learn some history before insulting people. I suggest you go to Gaza!! They will “love you” there.

  51. EstherHezghian says:

    Brigitte de Kroon , you are right, not all Goyim are the same. I don’t think she meant to include everyone. We have many many good friends and supporters who are not Jews. We love you and appreciate your understanding. We also have many Arabs who are pro Israel and they even serve in the army. We love and respect them and we pray for their safety. We should all unite to pray for peace all over the world!

    BREAKING: IDF forces in the Gaza Strip found a Hamas manual on “Urban Warfare,” which belonged to the Shuja’iya Brigade of Hamas’ military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades. The manual explains how the civilian population can be used against IDF forces and reveals that Hamas knows the IDF is committed to minimizing harm to civilians. Throughout Operation Protective Edge, Hamas has continuously used the civilian population of Gaza as human shields. The discovery of a Hamas “urban warfare” manual by IDF forces reveals that Hamas’ callous use of the Gazan population was intentional and preplanned. This Hamas urban warfare manual exposes two truths: (1) The terror group knows full well that the IDF will do what it can to limit civilian casualties. (2) The terror group exploits these efforts by using civilians as human shields against advancing IDF forces. The Manual (pictured): In a portion entitled “Limiting the Use of Weapons,” the manual explains that: The soldiers and commanders (of the IDF) must limit their use of weapons and tactics that lead to the harm and unnecessary loss of people and [destruction of] civilian facilities. It is difficult for them to get the most use out of their firearms, especially of supporting fire [e.g. artillery]. Clearly Hamas knows the IDF will limit its use of weapons in order to avoid harming civilians, including refraining from using larger firepower to support for infantry. The manual goes on to explain that the “presence of civilians are pockets of resistance” that cause three major problems for advancing troops: (1) Problems with opening fire (2) Problems in controlling the civilian population during operations and afterward (3) Assurance of supplying medical care to civilians who need it Lastly, the manual discusses the benefits for Hamas when civilian homes are destroyed: The destruction of civilian homes: This increases the hatred of the citizens towards the attackers [the IDF] and increases their gathering [support] around the city defenders (resistance forces[i.e. Hamas]). It is clear that Hamas actually desires the destruction of homes and civilian infrastructure, knowing it will increase hatred for the IDF and support their fighters. Why Shuja’iya is Important It is also of no small importance that this manual belongs to the Shuja’iya Brigade. The IDF fought a major battle in the neighborhood of Shuja’iya, which had been turned into a terrorist stronghold. The discovery of this manual suggests that the destruction in Shuja’iya was always part of Hamas’ plan.

    Elizabeth McFarland the arabs shoot their bottle rockets while israel aims their 2000 lb laser guided bombs, gift of the USSA, all because bibi can’t make them go away….talk about war crimes….

  55. IreneLetcher says:

    isn’t there a way from telling one bomb from another, or bullets, IDF should mark all bombs ,that way we know who bombed who.

  56. IreneLetcher says:

    can the I,D,F, surround the area then close them all into the middle of Gaza, is that possible, to force them to have no escape.

  57. IreneLetcher says:

    it will never be peace when they follow that evil bible the Qua-ran

  58. HélèneVolat says:

    The “new” narrative has begun. Israel was not responsible for 1900 Palestinian deaths. They died of natural causes ? One could almost hear the history revisionists talking about the concentration camps which never existed ….

  59. HélèneVolat says:

    You are abject. Get psychiatric help

  60. HélèneVolat says:

    Lynn Magnuson Seems to me that the butcher of Gaza and his thugs will end up in the International court at The Hague. And the outcome should be the same as in Nuremberg.

  61. HélèneVolat says:

    An “honest gentile reporter” …. Really ? this racist remark is telling …. Dont’ you have any decency left?

  62. HélèneVolat says:

    The revisionism of the Gaza slaughter has begun. Not only you can’t even acknowledge the obvious, that the extremist government of Israel has been slaughtering civilians but you find another false narrative to justify it. Shame on you !
