Top Hamas Leader Boasts of Using Hospital Patients as Human Shields

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam. He is completing a book on the international challenges America faces in the 21st century.


Aaron Klein conducted an interview with Mahmoud Al-Zahar, a top Hamas leader and co-founder of Hamas, who has said in the past, “We are no weaker or less honorable than the peoples that expelled and annihilated the Jews. The day we expel them is drawing near…We have learned the lesson – there is no place for you among us, and you have no future among the nations of the world. You are headed to annihilation.”

When Klein asked Mahmoud Al-Zahar whether he was worried about an Israeli targeted strike. Mahmoud Al-Zahar replied that, “They tried to target me and they sent a small rocket  But the Jordanian hospital here was near my house, and I think there was a big protest between and a big debate between the Jordanian government and the Israeli government. That was the main cause not to attack our house… So I am a target and I am not afraid.”

This is the courage of the Hamas leader who need not fear so long as hospital patients can act as his human shields.

    Presuming that Aaron Klein is Jewish, I'm guessing that he left the interview with his head still connected to his shoulders. What's the point of interviewing these psychopaths, unless it's just to reveal to an unbelieving world that they exist and mean Jews, Christians,apostates, etc. no good.

    When a culture feeds on blood all manner of inhumane activity is part and parcel. And when human shields gets the terror job done, then so be it.

    So, the inextricable link between Islam and blood is revealed once again -http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/07/13/islam-blood-a-groundbreaking-policy-paper-contained-herein-the-world-stands-on-a-precipice-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki-109/

    And the more barbaric their behavior, the more the international community appeases them -http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/09/13/muslim-blood-lust-boundless-no-excuses-needed-yet-western-third-world-devoteesappeasers-supply-them-addendum-to-islam-and-blood-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/

    So, repeat after this blogger – there is NO 'moderate' Islam, it is akin to being half pregnant – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/21/repeat-until-

    And this is why they must be beaten into submission…reasoning with a death cult will only get you killed!!

    "Top Hamas Leader Boasts of Using Hospital Patients as Human Shields" ….simply confirms what any rational person knows, these people are the lowest form of humanity in 6000 years of recorded history.

    The greater tragedy is that CNN, MSNBC and the other assortment of treason peddlers are trying to 'White Wash" Islam and spin the narrative that Islam is a peaceful religion that has been hijacked by a few radicals.

    President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Janet Napolitano, with the support of the Liberal Media are all complicit in selling America down the drain for the U.N. (Islamic) agenda.

    Where are the Conservatives or Republicans who have the vision or courage to shout "Treason"?….Their silence is deafening!

      You're probably right. Although Arafat did the same thing prolifically, I don't know that he bragged about it. OTOH, Arafat did more than use them as human shields, he harvested their blood to restore his soldiers…killing most if not all of the "donors."

      Referring to Jihadis generally, they certainly are the lowest, without any question in my mind.

    "We are no weaker or less honorable than the peoples that expelled and annihilated the Jews."

    Wow. Talk about low expectations. How can anyone be less honorable than a demonic false prophet?
