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.
