Hamas has ruled Gaza for 10 years, but has failed to call elections even once since coming to power in a bloody civil war.
Hamas, founded in 1987 during the First Intifada as an offshoot of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, is known for its rejection of all forms of normalization with what it calls “the Israeli occupation.”
After Israel granted all of Gaza to the Palestinians in 2005, without even requesting a promise of peace in return, one would expect Hamas to be relieved that there’s no occupation to fight and turn its focus to bettering the lives of Gazans.
This is not the case. Since taking control of the strip in the 2007 Battle of Gaza, in which Hamas and Fatah killed and wounded hundreds of fellow Palestinians, Hamas leaders have not had local residents’ needs in mind.
Watch this informative video from the IDF and you will see why Hamas hasn’t called elections the past ten years.
And, believe it or not, this terrorist organisation has friends in Australia, in
high low places, on the Left, of course. Here is one woman, the former chief of staff of the former prime minister, Tony Abbott, who "stopped the boats" ie, stopped the people smugglers at the gates of Australia. Her name is Peta Credlin and I think Australia would be lucky to have this woman as Prime Minister one day not too far away..........
From the sublime to the ridiculous:
BUT WAIT, THERE IS MORE !
Hypocrisy? Hamas seems unable to carry through with a simple boycott on Israeli drinks.
A week after the Hamas Palestinian Terrorist Group endorsed the boycott campaign against Israel, its officials convened for a meeting where Israeli-made refreshments were served.
A picture of their meeting was tweeted by Israel’s coordinator of government activities in the territories (COGAT) with the caption, “A week after endorsing BDS, Hamas officials were photographed drinking Israeli products at a recent meeting. Stay thirsty Hamas.”
COGAT, which oversees the implementation of civil and humanitarian policies in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, also tweeted that there were five ambulance crossings between Gaza and Israel on Monday, while nearly 4,000 travel permits were issued for residents of Gaza and 19,902 tons of goods entered Gaza in 646 trucks.
Like Hamas, leaders of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel have stated that their goal is: the elimination of the Jewish state.
As we speak, today, on the 10.8.2017: IDF uncovers more Gaza terrorist tunnels inside residential buildings and mosques
IDF to Hamas:
!!! Don't test us !!!
