Hamas Spokesman Urges Gazans to Act as Human Shields for Hamas Leaders

When Israel bombs Hamas targets and civilians die, they’re not just collateral damage. Many of them are conscious human shields who have deliberately chosen to get their 72 virgins this way.

Hamas is making a bet that using human shields will deter Israel. And if it doesn’t, they get to shout “Atrocity” and scream that Israel is cold-bloodedly murdering civilians. (via Memri)

Hamas Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri: Al Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza)

Host: “Are people still going up to the rooftops? Witnesses told us there is a large gathering and people are still going to the Kawari family house, in order to prevent the Zionist occupation’s warplanes from targeting it. What is your comment about this?”

“People are reverting to the (human shield) method which proved very successful in the days of martyr Nizar Riyan…”

Hamas Spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri: “This attests to the character of our noble, Jihad-fighting people who defend their rights and their homes with their bare chests and their blood. The policy of people confronting the Israeli warplanes with their bare chests in order to protect their homes has proven effective against the occupation.”

“Also this policy reflects the character of our brave, courageous people.”

“We in Hamas call upon our people to adopt this policy.”

I’m not sure why the human shields can’t wear shirts and maybe something underneath them. It’s like that admonition to wear clean underwear if you get into a car accident.

The Hamas TV host mentioned Nizar Riyan’s success story. What was his success story?

Last Thursday, the IAF killed Hamas leader Nizar Riyyan, along with his four wives and eleven of his children whom he had gathered around him in his home. The ‘Palestinian’ web site Ma’an interviewed one of Riyyan’s surviving children and from what she (proudly) says, Jim Jones’ mass suicide cult had nothing on Riyyan.

One hour before he was killed Rayyan’s daughter in law Eyman Asfora went to visit him. Walaa remembers that Eyman, wife to Rayyan’s eldest son Bilal, was received with a smile. He asked her if she would like to die a martyr with him, and she said “yes.” But she left seconds before the missile struck the four-storey home.

As it turned out, when Rayyan offered his daughter-in-law the “opportunity” to die he had already received a phone call from the IDF warning him to evacuate his house due to an impending airstrike.

The 11 children who died with Nizar Rayyan ranged in age from one year old to 16. Another son died years earlier when Rayyan sent him to carry out a suicide bombing in Gaza. Two Israelis were murdered in that attack.

What about this is successful exactly? Well it led to some dead kids and negative media coverage of Israel. That’s how Hamas thinks.

The bodies of a senior Hamas leader’s small children were today ghoulishly paraded through the streets of Gaza as the group pledged to avenge their deaths.

Nizar Rayan, his four wives and 10 of his children were all killed by in an Israeli air strike on his home after he ignored warnings they should go into hiding.

In grisly scenes, mourners held up the bloodied bodies of the children to the cameras in a clear attempt to blacken Israel’s name and highlight its brutality.

Graphic images showed the young children’s uncovered faces as the victims were carried by thousands of angry Hamas supporters during the funeral procession.

Mission accomplished? Apparently. All he had to do was die and take as many of his kids with him as he could.

Now there are more human shields at the Kawari home, mentioned in the video, drinking the Halal Kool Aid.

A further warning came as the occupants were leaving, he said in a telephone interview, when an Israeli drone apparently fired a flare at the roof of the three-story home. “Our neighbors came in to form a human shield,” he said, with some even going to the roof to try to prevent a bombing. Others were in the stairway when the house was bombed not long afterward.

Seven people died, Mr. Kaware said, a figure also stated by the Palestinian Health Ministry in Gaza, which also said that 25 people were wounded. The Israeli military said that targeted houses belonged to Hamas members involved in launching rockets or other military activity, and that they had been used as operations rooms.

Look at those Israeli monsters, offering repeated warnings before bombing a Hamas target and then killing human shields who voluntarily went there.

      It could wipe out Hamas and also all the so-called Palestinians at once, but that still would not end the jihad the Islamic totalitarian world is waging against it and, as a matter of fact, also simultaneously against the entire infidel world.

      Indeed, no one individual infidel state alone can accomplish that feat individually. As it will take virtually the entire infidel world uniting together as one to collectively put an end to the global jihad at large. The alternative is to learn to live in a world with permanent and perpetual jihad.

            There is NO evidence of it.

            It didn’t happen after the 7/7/05 London bombings, after the beheading of Lee Rigby, the arrest of Paul Weston for reading the words of Winston Churchill on his views of Arabs/Muslims, after rape gangs that focus on white girls, after open threats of massacres in the UK by Islamofascists.

            The UK and the rest of Eurabia is still in a trance. Something has to shock Eurabia out of its stupor.

          • Drakken

            I highly suggest you take yourself a trip to Europe this summer and go hang out where the locals go, you will find in very short order absolute disgust an discontent all around, the Europeans are but an incident away fro full scale retribution, it will start as a very small matter and escalate from there, as for the Brits? Unfortunately they are always a tad slow on the uptake, but once they get going, they will step up. It won’t start in Britain and if I was a betting man, I would say it will start either in France or one of the Eastern European countries, but make no mistake, it is coming.

          • Pati Cristina

            It’s because we choose dialogue over violence, we know that violence leads to more violence, your violence has made people reluctant in many parts of the world, they are mostly quiet, but believe me, the respect and deep sympathy for the holocaust (which in your language of war should be defined as warfare I guess) are gone. When we see killed children, we see children, when you see them, you just see a heap of Hamas flesh; just close your eyes and imagine this child is Israeli, maybe this will melt your hearts

  • DogmaelJones1

    ““This attests to the character of our noble, Jihad-fighting people who defend their rights and their homes with their bare chests and their blood….” What? Do the women “bare their chests,” too? How repulsive! But, isn’t that evidence of immodesty? Are they immediately punished with 100 lashes on the spot? Well, anyway, I don’t think this habit much attests to any nobility of those jihad-fighting people as it does to a whole lot of multi-generational, IQ-damaging inbreeding of cousins. The men may think they’re going to paradise and 72 edible raisins; are the women expecting 72 geeks?

    • Pati Cristina

      from your post it is clear you see the war as a game, and your world is black-and-white, now I see why so many Israelis do not care, I guess the words שלום ,צדק
      may as well be removed from Hebrew dictionary

      • DogmaelJones1

        Dear Pati: No, I don’t see the war as a “game.” Quite the opposite. If you want to see how silly and facetious I am, please see my own blog site, Rule of Reason, here. http://ruleofreason.blogspot.com/. You might also read my novel about the early infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S., “The Black Stone,” featured here on a side panel by Mr. Greenfield. Also, I don’t read Hebrew, so you might have provided a translation of those words.

        • Pati Cristina

          Dear Dogma, I see we are speaking of 2 different things.You see, I am not interested in discussing ideology, Muslim Brotherhood, whom I more than dislike, I am interested in you and your peers to develop human feelings for Palestinian little ones- the ideology you believe in puts a heavy curtain on your heart, you do not see the tragedy of children and their parents from normal, human perspective. For you it seems to be a part of necessary actions to take in the name of your ideology /”good Arab is dead Arab”, right?”/.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Pati, If a group tells you they want to kill your entire family, do you “understand”, spread your legs and flutter your eyelashes, or do you fight?

  • DogmaelJones1

    One more thing: What is the rationale of calling these creatures up before eliminating them in a fireworks display? I don’t see that the practice does Israel any good in the way of showing that they’re not “monsters,” as Hamas/Fatah and etc. portray Israel anyway, regardless, and the creatures actually “leave the building” before it’s reduced to rubble. I mean, have there been any Palestinian news bulletins that went: “Four adults, including six wives (all of them pregnant), twelve teenagers, seven pre-scholol toddlers, and four infants, were spared their lives today when they received warning by cellphone of an eminent drone strike and evacuated their domicile before it was demolished. The fortunate survivors praised israel for its humanitarian consideration. Let us praise Allah for israel’s generous humanity!”

    • Daniel Greenfield

      it’s stupid

      unfortunately Israel like the US is crippled by stupid rules and humanitarian gestures when fighting terrorism

      • DogmaelJones1

        Agreed. Stupidity knows no boundaries.

    • Ellen_L

      There are reasons to do things other than politics. They are actually trying to warn people to save their lives if they want to. It is sad that these people want to die. The IDF can’t control that, they can only warn them and do as they have stated they will do. The situation is one of horror and grief. Jews stopped human sacrifice back with Abraham and Isaac, the human shields should learn better and parents who deliberately kill their children are monstrous by today’s standards. Perhaps, once several cases have happened, the warnings will be heeded so they can destroy the weapons rather than people.
      It is not the IDF that is stupid but the people who want to die or who do not believe the warnings.

      • DogmaelJones1

        Au contraire, it is a short-sighted, if not a stupid policy. If the Israeli government really meant business, it would wage total war against the “Palestinians” in Gaza and the West Bank, just as Hamas et al. are waging total war against Israel. I don’t see the “Palestinians” issuing warnings to Israelis that they’re about to strike. No courteous telephonic advisories from the Arabs are made to Israelis. People just suddenly are killed, maimed, or kidnapped. I’m sure Israeli intelligence knows precisely where all the “brains” of Hamas, Fatah, etc. are bunkered down in. Wipe them all out, without warning. Send all the poor, whittle Palestinians running and suing for peace. If you’re going to kill it, kill it. Don’t just hurt it and then administer an IV.

        • Ellen_L

          Thank you for answering, I was afraid I misjudged you. We do not agree perhaps because you are looking at all out war and I don’t think it has come to that. But that is easy for me to say living in the US. I might feel differently if those missiles were entering my city. My point was that it is not merely political but a genuine attempt to not kill the wrong people unnecessarily. Force is always destructive even in self defense and should be used only as needed. It should not take many examples before people stop volunteering to be killed.

          • Drakken

            Your mistake and naivety comes from your mistaken belief that all people, religions and cultures are all equal, when it is as clear as day they are not.

          • Ellen_L

            You do not know me nor what I think. Your answer is hogwash. I don’t have to think people, religions or cultures are the same to think that we each have a right to live and decide for ourselves how we wish to live. That implies that no one has the right to force his beliefs on others – one’s rights to act end when one denies the rights of others. One has the right to live miserably by accepting outmoded or destructive ideas but not to destroy others.

            Do NOT try to brand me as sympathizing with the terrorists! They are the ones initiating violence against Israel which tries mightily to treat them humanely and with respect – even to the point of warning them to not congregate where they will be bombing. If they are so stupid as to think Israel will not strike back when provoked they need to learn better. It is sad because rather than endanger their children they could teach them to prosper with the role model that Israel has become. Everyone would be better off.

  • sydchaden

    One can’t help but be impressed by the incredible bravery of the Hamas leaders, asking people to serve as human shields to protest them. Of course, Europe, and the UN, and Obama, will have nothing to say about that, but, there should be some sort of Nobel Prize for it.

    • Drakken

      OMG, you really think Hamas “asks” for permission? Who in their sanity would agree, please turn off propaganda and turn on thinking. To Texas Patriot- do you really think Palestinians not supporting Hamas can just go out and freely demonstrate their opinion? I think you realize that Hamas is as willing to let them do so, as Israeli government is willing to permit demonstrations of their citizens againt military aggression in Gaza.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Why do infidels automatically assume that Islamic totalitarian society is exactly like our infidel society? In Islamic totalitarian society as opposed to infidel society, there are no civilians.

    Indeed, waging jihad in one form or another, either violently or non-violently, which is a holy war waged by all Muslims against all infidels in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme throughout the world, is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon ALL Muslims, including women and children, and because Islam is a so-called religion that executes all apostates and all blasphemers, all mainstream orthodox Muslims in the world are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent. As opposed to just a few radicals, extremists, and Islamists here and there who perpetrate terrorism only in response to western provocations.

    Otherwise, since Islam is far more an extremely rabid form of totalitarianism that seeks world domination as opposed to being just a so-called religion, all Muslims that don’t adhere to the “will of Allah” they totally, completely, and unconditionally submitted to under the penalties of death for apostasy and death for blasphemy, are summarily executed for apostasy and blasphemy.

    Hence, since all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another, either violent or non-violent, including the women and children, then that means that all Muslims are combatants, and that is the reason why women and children are employed as human shields.

    Not to mention as well, that we have often observed through the years women and children being employed as suicide/homicide bombers to devastating effect. As a matter of fact, thousands of young Iranian Muslim boys were used as human waves in the jihad Iran was waging against Iraq back during the 1980s. Again, per the dictates of Islam, all Muslims are jihadists in one form or another and there are no non-combatants in Islamic totalitarian society.

  • CowboyUp

    And I urge the IDF to bomb them anyway. The responsibility for the deaths of human shields is on the party using them, not the party they are used against.

    • Texas Patriot

      The use of human shields is probably a war crime under international law, and those who volunteer for it should probably be regarded as enemy combatants.

      • Nabukuduriuzhur

        Use of human shields is a war crime.

        It’s also ignored that the Third 1949 Geneva Convention gives no protection to a person who does combat in civilian garb. They are a non-person who can be shot, detained, questioned, etc.

        By “volunteering” to fight for Hamas in civilian clothes, they have no rights at all. What used to be called “spies and sabateurs” and now “illegal combatants.”

        • Texas Patriot

          In order to stop and prevent Hamas from launching rocket attacks against its civilians now and in the future, Israel has a right of self-defense to degrade, dismantle, and destroy the operational infrastructure used by Hamas to carry out such attacks. Under these circumstances, Hamas should not be permitted to use human shields (volunteers or otherwise) in such a way to prevent Israel from defending and protecting its citizens from rocket attacks.

          • Drakken

            Well I am absolutely sure that if you come on over here and tell those meany Hamass folks that it is wrong to use human shields, that they will stop doing it and they will fall under western rules and regulations of fighting wars to the letter. Those savages are nothing but a target rich environment, it is really nice that they group together for their group photo, look up and smile for the flash.

      • CowboyUp

        It is, but jihadis and communists are never condemned, much less punished for violating the laws of war.

        • Texas Patriot

          So what? Is Israel supposed to whine and complain about that? What good would it do?

          From my point of view, it would appear that the Israeli government is acting responsibly to defend its people by specifically targeting, degrading, disabling, and destroying the Hamas infrastructure used to carry out the illegal rocket attacks, and it seems likely that the government of Israel will continue to defend the Israeli people in that manner for as long as the rocket attacks continue.

          Here’s the point. We don’t get to choose our enemies or how they choose to attack us. But we do get to choose how we respond to them.

          • CowboyUp

            So what? So Israel shouldn’t worry about what the world thinks of them for defending themselves effectively against such people. Proportionate response just prolongs the war.

          • Texas Patriot

            It doesn’t have anything to do with “proportionality”. It has to do with acting appropriately effectively according to the international law and well-recognized human right of self-defense. And that means doing whatever it takes not only to stop but also to prevent the recurrence of future rocket attacks. And that is precisely what Israel seems to be doing with its carefully planned precision strikes to disable, degrade, dismantle, and destroy the ability of the Hamas organization to engage in the illegal rocket attacks, either now or in the future.

    I read some comments and just cannot believe how brainwashed and full of
    hatred some folks are! Check up PROPAGANDA in Wikipedia, mr WEBB, TEXAS
    PATRIOT, NUBUKUDURIUZHUR, DOGMA JONES, etc.
    When kids are killed, regardless of where, in Palestine, Israel, North Korea, Ukraine, Sudan, etc., it means the thing is WRONG!
    Israel
    mastered well its language of propaganda, the truth is Hamas is
    disliked and feared by most Gazans, who are in a trap- they are
    endgangered all the time by impredictable actions of Hamas onto Israel
    territory, and of unproportional strike back used by Israel. Israel is
    capable of catching terrorists without murdering the children and other
    civilians. They got the best technology, weapons, etc. They just don’t
    want to spare Palestinian children, as for them their neighbours (whom
    they stole the land) is what mr Webb said. Israeli soldiers are not
    heros- they are brutal bandits and sadists, and I’m sure one day they
    will understand how manipulated they were by their government.

    • Texas Patriot

      Hamas is wrong to launch rocket attacks against innocent Israeli civilians, and Hamas is wrong to use human shields (including women and children) in an attempt to prevent Israel from protecting and defending its citizens. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

      • Pati Cristina

        Texas Patriot, please advise to Gaza families with kids, how can they “themselves should do whatever it takes to stop and prevent Hamas
        from using Gaza to launch rocket attacks against innocent Israeli
        civilians”- please do so, because they don’t know, they are too busy hiding in the corners of their homes and hugging their freightened kids, or eventually collecting the dismemebered bodies of their little ones after yet another rocket strike. it is not that simple as you picture it, it is not that black-and-white at all. Maybe you do not know, or do not want to accept the fact, but GAZA is not HAMAS, in Europe (to which you sometimes claim to belong, e.g. during Eurovision contest, or sports event) collective responsibility is a war crime, if you want to kill the terrorists, please do so, but do not murder the innocent ones.

        • Texas Patriot

          PC: Maybe you do not know, or do not want to accept the fact, but GAZA is not HAMAS

          It sounds as if you are saying that the vast majority of the people of Gaza are being held hostage against their will by Hamas and that Hamas is using the land of Gaza to launch rocket attacks against the people of Israel in a manner which is against the will of the people of Gaza, is that correct? There are a couple of issues here.

          First, is it not the case that the political entity Hamas was duly elected by the people of Gaza in democratically held elections in which they had a chance to choose between Hamas and the Fatah party of Mahmoud Abbas?

          Second, if what Hamas is doing is contrary to the will of the people of Gaza, wouldn’t we be seeing some direct evidence of that in the form of demonstrations, armed resistance or massive amounts of resistance in the form of internet communications on twitter feeds and the like?

          Third, if the Israeli government is attempting to punish all the people of Gaza for the acts of a few on a theory of “collective responsibility”, wouldn’t we be seeing the indiscriminate and direct targeting of civilians who are not associated with Hamas?

          The good news is that the world media at the moment is completely focused on the situation in Gaza and if there is any evidence that (a) the people of Gaza do not support the actions of their government or (b) the government of Israel is deliberately targeting the people of Gaza generally rather than individuals associated with Hamas, then the rest of the world will know about it almost immediately.

          • Pati Cristina

            To Texas Patriot: I’m not sure what your media show, but in Europe we are informed regularily of the Palestinian casualties , including young or even not yet born children. Believe me, they didn’t vote for Hamas, and many of their parents neither! in European media lots of stress is put on the unproportional use of weapons by Isreal, in Europe people are shocked that you follow in Hitler’s footsteps , by using collective responsibility and bringing atrocities onto the civililians. In Europe, from a farther perspective from you and the US we see clearly your government organizes raids to be able to justify to Israeli citizens why so much money is spent on weapons, and most of all because lots of Isreali officials and their families are financially benefiting from the military mania in Israel. If the mania is gone, and peace would eventually settle in, they would lose jobs, and US would lose lucrative contracts for weapons sale. It is to us as obvious as the fact that the last thing youy government wants is peace. P.S. You say that attacks are punishment for Palestinian’s chosing Hamas, is that correct? Please try to thinkof names of “leaders” who used your methods (provided you have unprejudiced history lessons at school), I’m sure this will not make you feel proud.
            Btw, you still haven’t given advice to Arab families how they can stop Hamas from firing rockets onto Israel territory, during this night you killed more children, actually they were torn apart by your missiles and shrapnels, decapitated , too, but I expect you to say again it is their fault.

          • Texas Patriot

            Unfortunately, you have not addressed my questions about (1) the the fact that the residents of Gaza in free democratic elections chose Hamas in preference to the Fatah party of Mahmoud Abbas; (2) the fact that there are apparently no public demonstrations by the residents of Gaza against Hamas, there is apparently no armed resistance by the residents of Gaza against Hamas, and there is apparently no internet campaign by the residents of Gaza against Hamas in the form of Twitter attacks or complaints or otherwise; and (3) the fact that Israel is very carefully targeting Hamas operatives and Hamas infrastructure instead of the civilian residents of Gaza. What makes it all even worse is the fact that Hamas is deliberately using the residents of Gaza as “human shields” to prevent Israel from defending itself and innocent Israeli citizens against illegal rocket attacks.

          • abernahi

            “we see clearly your government organizes raids to be able to justify to Israeli citizens why so much money is spent on weapons…” Pati Cristina is saying here that Israel organizes raids to look like Palestinians are attacking Israel. The woman is bonkers. Europeans are fed an endless stream of anti-Israel propaganda which is why so much of the funding for Hamas comes from Europe. Europe is part of the problem.

        • Drakken

          You call it a war crime, I call it what it is, warfare. There are no innocents in war against Islamic jihad, period, and the sooner you understand this the better it is going to be on the Europeans, because your going to have your own Balkans on steroids against the muslims in your midst soon enough.

            So Holocaust was warfare, too? In Europe only one country is as artificial as Israel, it is Kosovo, and yes, I expect there to be conflicts, too. In other parts, please belive me, your actions are condemned by people and the media, only our politicians are as cowardly as usual.

      Your concern for these subhuman savages is really touching and absolutely naïve.

    • SCREW SOCIALISM

      Israel actually telephones and drops leaflets warning civilians to leave their homes because an attack on Hamass bunkers is about to commence.

      Do you demand that Israel allow Hamass to continue to fire rockets at Israel while Hamass continues to use CHILDREN as HUMAN SHIELDS?

      Are you willing to use yourself and your own family as HUMAN SHIELDS in lieu of the children that Hamass uses to shield itself???

      • Pati Cristina

        I prefer to be a naive idiot rather than a person with heart filled with hatred. Your last sentence is typical of Israeli discourse- a threat, right? To tell the truth I can’t imagine any country in the world living in peace with such a Dominator as their neighbour. Even US prefers to pay you”ransom”, just to make sure you stay away.

        • Nick3

          “unproportional strike back”. Yes, I’m pretty sure that if Israel send three police cars there wouldn’t be so many collateral damage. The problem would be to make the soldiers inside the three vehicles arrive alive to their target.

  • notme123

    There are no civilians. All are the enemy. And the so called moderate when given the choice, will choose his religion over peace.

  • NLMR

    Questions :
    - if Tsahal warns people before bombing Hamas targets, how do they actually kill Hamas leaders?
    - when palestinian comply and leave their homes, where are they supposed to go? Being warned doesn’t change the fact they live in fear that their homes and possessions can be destroyed at any moment and there’s nothing they can do about it.
