Hamas Does Not Target Civilians

In an August 2014 interview with Yahoo News, chief Hamas-hole Khaled Meshaal said;

We do not target civilians, and we try most of the time to aim at military targets and Israeli bases. But we admit that we have a problem. We do not have sophisticated weapons. We do not have the weapons available to our enemy so aiming is difficult. We do promise you, though, that we will try in the future and we will warn people. We have given warnings to Israeli civilians. We promise that if we get more precise weapons, we will only target military targets

OK, I’ll wait until you’re done cleaning the milk and chewed bits of cereal from your screen.  Yeah, there are a lot of good ones here. But it is less funny once you realize this nonsense was included as fact in the UNHRC Gaza War report that was recently passed.

And now this tweet from Hamas.

In the above tweet, Hamas lists its notable sites proudly targeted during Operation Protective Edge.

Including such legitimate military targets as:

  • Gush Dan
    • The metropolitan area containing roughly half of Israel’s population.
    • Population: 3.642 million
    • Number of civilians according to Hamas: 0
  • Haifa
    • Israel’s 3rd largest city
    • Population: 1,922,181 (including metro area)
    • Arab population: 24%
    • Number of civilian according to Hamas: 0
  • Jerusalem
    • Population: 809,112
    • Arab population: 34%
    • Hamas rocket ability to differentiate Jews from the Arabs they’re trying to liberate: non-existent
  • Ben Gurion Airport
    • 2014 evil Zionist Israeli passengers who are all totally legit targets: 658,744
    • 2014 International passengers: 14,266,625 (95.6%)
    • Number of civilians according to Hamas: 0

Another example of what they say to English media versus what they say to Arabic media.  I guess now that the UNHRC report has passed, they can say whatever they want, right?

Well… whatever gets them more money to terrorize.
