It is startling that people with ascerbic tongue harps on the sufferings of Gazan arabs due to Israeli military incursion. People forget that Israel's acts are just retaliations against Hamas raining missiles on Israel. By turning a blind eye to this
simple provocation to terrorist acts, more opportunities for brainwashing are opened up. In this case Hamas has achieved success in propagandizing their case, the utter destruction of Israel.
But here we emphasize that Hamas treat people lives cheaply and even their leaders have the mindless pomposity to declare it on the media as this spokesman did:
He said: “This attests to the character of our noble, jihad-loving people – who defend their rights and their homes with their bare chests and their blood.
“The policy of people confronting the Israeli warplanes with their bare chests in order to protect their homes has proven effective against the occupation… we in Hamas call upon our people to adopt this policy in order to protect the Palestinian homes.”
Here is a poster of the IDF emphasizing this point:
Even the UN[Ref 2] in a report said:
“In most cases, prior to the attacks, residents have been warned to leave, either via phone calls by the Israel military or by the firing of warning missiles.”
But the Hamas-led Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Interior has told residents not to pay attention to the IDF warnings[Ref 3, 4].
It is easy for low vocabulary range "experts" to even think that Palestine is a nation of Arabs, forgetting that Palestine was already partitioned in 1947, Israel was born from this partition, but the Palestinian Arabs rejected this plan.
