A shocked world seems to be rethinking and shifting sides in a war that began with a surprise raid and massacre of babies, families, civilians, early on a holiday Sabbath morning. Suddenly those who rose up to defend and prevent the further slaughter of innocents are becoming the inhumane, even the guilty.
Before you pick a side, consider the following:
“Fathi Hamad, Hamas political bureau member and former Hamas interior minister in Gaza, said in a public address that aired on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV on July 12, 2019: “We will not die of starvation. If we die, it will be while we are killing you and cutting off your heads, Allah willing. […] There are Jews everywhere! We must attack every Jew on Planet Earth – we must slaughter and kill them, with Allah’s help […] If we die, we die – but we will die with honor, while attacking, and not while retreating! We will die while exploding and cutting the necks and legs of the Jews! We will lacerate them and tear them to pieces, Allah willing.” (quote and emphasis MEMRI)
