Hamas’ Haniyeh Stresses Importance of Science – For Terrorism

Gaza has held its First Scientific Conference, and senior hamas-hole Ismail Haniyeh has stressed the importance of “scientific research and knowledge production.”

But don’t worry, this is not about becoming a productive society trying to improve the world. It is about improving their terrorist capabilities.

The Head of the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement said on Tuesday that “scientific research and knowledge production are among the strategic goals” of Hamas. Ismail Haniyeh made his comment in a televised speech for the First Scientific Conference for the ministry of education in Gaza.

“Scientific research fulfils our national needs, builds domestic capabilities and opens the pathway for our people to take part in the liberation process,” said the Hamas leader. “The societies suffering under occupation need education more than others as occupation anonymises nations to link them to the occupiers’ cultures. This is where the importance of education and scientific research comes in: to help nations liberate themselves.”

Haniyeh recalled the martyred leaders of the movement. They were, he pointed out, among the top scientific and professional people, and left their mark on the development of the Palestinian resistance and its capabilities.

The irony is while he complains that “societies suffering under occupation need education more than others as occupation anonymises nations to link them to the occupiers’ cultures”, palestinian Arabs would benefit considerably if they learned from what they call the ‘occupier’s’* culture. Israel is a world leader in science and technology, despite our relatively small size and huge challenges, the latter of which mainly arise from Hamas et al.

*I reject the idea we are an occupier
