Hamas Kill Hamashole And Then Blame It On Israel

There once was a Hamashole called Taha,

To whom you should say Sayonara,

He was considered a spy

Hence worthy to die

He’s now pretty low grade fertilizer

ayman tahaMilitiamen on Thursday dumped the bullet-riddled body of Ayman Taha, a former prominent Hamas figure, outside Gaza City’s Shifa Hospital.

The body remained on the ground for nearly an hour before other militiamen came back and took it to an unknown destination.

Palestinians who were at the hospital were too afraid to remove the body.

A few hours later, Taha’s body was handed over to Shifa Hospital by a number of Hamas militiamen.

Palestinian journalists said that Taha had been executed for spying on behalf of an Arab intelligence service and involvement in financial corruption.

According to the journalists, Taha was executed by a firing squad three days ago. They said that he died instantly of gunshots to the head and chest.

But what is even more interesting – although not surprising – about the Taha affair is Hamas’s attempt to distance itself from any responsibility for his death.

In fact, some Hamas officials are now seeking to shift the blame toward Israel.

Shortly after Palestinian journalists reported the execution, Hamas published a brief statement “mourning” the death of Taha, who it claimed was “martyred” during an Israeli air strike on an apartment in Gaza City.

Hamas had no explanation, of course, as to why the man had been hit in the head and chest by bullets that were apparently fired from close range.

The attempt to blame Israel is seen in the context of the movement’s effort to prevent retaliatory attacks by Taha’s powerful clan. The family had previously denounced the arrest of its son and called for his immediate release.

Taha is not the only Palestinian to be killed by Hamas in the past few weeks. According to various reports, Hamas has executed several Palestinians on suspicion of “collaboration” with Israel since the beginning of the war in the Gaza Strip.

Yet Hamas has not officially admitted that it carried out these executions, as is the case with its former top representative, Ayman Taha. Hamas is also unlikely to ever admit that its men killed any Palestinian during the past few weeks. Instead, Hamas will add the people it has murdered to the list of “casualties of Israeli aggression.”

Ayman Taha, we hardly knew you.

Good.

    Logic is not a strong Arab trait.

    As long as Israel is being accused, it should target Hamas kingpins as the highest priority of this new round of fighting, whether they are holed up in the Gaza hospital or in hotels in Qatar. Since air raids are blunt instruments, commando raids in Gaza, like the U.S. Navy SEAL raid that killed Bin Laden, may be needed. As for Qatar, air strikes are in order, including the royal palace as a target.

      I don’t really understand why more commando raids have not taking place; maybe the intel is too poor on the location of Hamas leaders actually living in Gaza though. It would be interesting to hear more about the issue, that’s for sure.

        “Raid on Entebbe” is getting kind of old and Charles Bronson isn’t around anymore. How about “Raid on Doha” starring Channing Tatum?

      Air strikes on Qatar would be massively counterproductive…..

      A much more effective strategy would be to lobby FIFA, the world governing body of football (soccer) which has given to World Cup to be hosted in Qatar in 2022.

      Billions have already been poured into this venture with many more billions to follow. If any definitive link between Isis and Qatari oil money can be established then this will be a huge levy in which to lobby FIFA………losing the World Cup would be a much bigger blow than a royal palace and with little comeback on the west…..

        agree about air raids on Qatar–a stupendously bad idea–but there’s nothing wrong with a little close-order assassination. maybe like they took out that Iranian nuke scientist by putting a bomb on his car. well hey…I don’t have to tell Mossad how to do their job…

        Bennet already brought this up. In fact, as Qatar helps fund al Jazeera, he directly accused the station and the reporter interviewing him of killing children in Gaza. (I would guess this gave Den Shapiro to do the same to CNN.)

      That would be crazy. But FUN!

    The BBC is (sort of) waking up to the realities of the questionable casualty figures coming out of Gaza

      As soon as the war will start again, they will suddenly forget about any decency and objectivity, rest assured. Fakestinian flags are flying on UK institutions, but their own flag is forbidden to be shown.

      As it seems Hamas supporters are lurking around (google translation of the facebook comment in arabic, from the worker at the salami facto…err college) I just want to say that if Taha was an Egyptian agent, Khaled Mashal is for sure a Qatari one. Also every month I make a payment to all upper echelons of Hamas (as EU is contributing to Hamas funds, as well as US). So technically you’re all my employees, traitors to your nation and your cult. How about cleaning up the pigfarm a bit more?

    I can guarantee alot of the “Palestinians” who were killed in this latest conflict where killed by the “Palestinians” and a large amount who were “killed” were not really killed since the “Palestinians” are known to lie about their death count
