While you might be lead to believe that Israel is enjoying an opportunity to have a go at killing a few more innocent civilians Hamas official Salah Bardawil is claiming that 50 or the 62 Palestinians kill yesterday where members of the terrorist organisation Hamas.

“In the last rounds of confrontations, if 62 people were martyred, Fifty of the martyrs were Hamas and 12 from the people. How can Hamas reap the fruits if it pays such an expensive price?” said Hamas official Salah Bardawil in an interview with the Palestinian Baladna news outlet.

If you listen to much of the mainstream media, the Palestinians that Israel killed over the last day or so, were at home drinking tea and reading stories to their children. But many of them were at best firing rocks towards the IDF, using slingshots. Remember what they did to Goliath.

By the way, what is the man in the background doing? I have put a red circle around it?

The BBC is asking questions like “Did Israel use excessive force at Gaza protests?”

But I have not yet seen any UK media asking why Hamas has a great number of terrorist within what is being claimed os a spontaneous protest.

Hamas official: 50 of the 62 Gazans killed in border violence were our members.

  1. I naturally feel concerned about the upsurge in violence as human life is always precious; even the life of a terrorist.

    However, it should be said that Israel warned people not to approach the border fence. In the days leading up to these incidents the Israelis dropped 1,000s of leaflets giving explicit warnings NOT to go near the border fence.

    Even in this country, if an enraged mob were to push against the gates of Downing St. they would be putting themselves at risk of being shot.

    • Thanks Bob. Yes. And interestingly, and we will be looking at this at the weekend Hamas is claiming that 50 of the 62 were shot were Hamas fighters. So, on the whole, it looks like Israel is targeting the right people.
