A Thank You Letter From Hamas to the Media

hamas_lebanon_0224Dear Members of the Mainstream Media,

You’ve been awesome! Everyone knows that we start unwinnable wars with Israel because the real victory happens when you predictably side with us each time. And you’ve been so supportive of our strategy that we really want to acknowledge your helpfulness. In particular, we thank you for:

-Focusing so much more on our suffering than anyone else’s. Nigerians must die in far greater numbers before you take notice, so we’re glad that you value our lives so much more.

-Minimizing your coverage, if any, of our attacks that led up to Israel’s military response and generally providing so little context that outsiders think that Israelis kill Palestinians just for fun. We’re especially grateful to the French media for this. Their distortions of the conflict are so one-sided that they incite Muslims across France to attack Jews and synagogues, and that is welcomed by our anti-Semitic worldview (although, unfortunately, such attacks remind everyone why Jews need a state).

-Emphasizing our civilian death toll without explaining that (1) our casualty reports are hasty and inflated, and (2) we maximize that total by using Palestinians to shield our weapons and by urging them to stay in the very areas that the IDF — in its annoying effort to minimize our civilian deaths — warns Gazans to evacuate.

-Never mentioning the fact that if we could kill millions of Israelis, we would (after all, our charter calls for Israel’s destruction). Just as the 9/11 hijackers made the most of what they had but would have liked to kill far more Americans (for example, with the help of WMD), we too would love to kill far more Israelis. Indeed, we have purposely targeted Israel’s nuclear reactor on several occasions, with that very goal in mind. Fortunately, you never highlight the genocidal intent behind our attacks when mentioning Israel’s “disproportionate” response.

-Never calling us jihadists even though we persecute Christians (like the ISIS, which just compelled Mosul’s Christians to convert to Islam). The forced conversion, expulsion, or murder of Christians and other religious minorities by Islamists has been happening for millennia, as assiduously documented in Crucified Again, but such historical context is thankfully absent from your reporting on our conflict with Israel.

-Downplaying how bad we are for Gazans by not reporting on, for example, our attack on the very Israeli power station that provides electricity to 70,000 Gazans. Thankfully, you also ignored how the Israelis — in their stupid display of goodwill — exposed their workers to the perils of our rockets so that they could restore power to Gaza.

-Minimally reporting on our corruptionunfair wealth, or vast expenditures on tunnels to attack Israel while ordinary Palestinians grew poorer.

-Overlooking how — to maximize Palestinian deaths — we store our missiles in an UNWRA-run school and how, when UNWRA finds out, they just hand us back our missiles.

-Disregarding Arabs who have the courage to critique us — like Dr. Tawfik Hamid, an Islamist-turned-reformer who blames Palestinian suffering entirely on us.

-Ignoring Israelis’ humanitarian folly in providing medical aid to the very terrorists trying to kill them.

-Failing to acknowledge Israel’s immense restraint. Had we been fighting Syria’s Assad regime, by now Gaza would have been flattened — devastated by barrel bombs, poison gas, and other attacks that are far more indiscriminate than Israel’s intelligence-directed strikes. And of course, if Syria were killing us, you’d hardly care. But luckily, we’re dealing with Israel — that country that everyone loves to hate — so we can count on your helpful coverage here.

-Omitting how Israel chose to sacrifice dozens of IDF soldiers when destroying our tunnels and weapons in densely populated areas like Shejaiya because doing so with airstrikes (which risks no soldiers) would have killed many thousands of Palestinians. Your friendly omission of such crucial facts reminds us of how wonderfully you covered Jenin in 2002, when (again) — rather than praise Israel’s humane but costly decision to use ground troops rather than airstrikes – you very helpfully and falsely accused Israel of a massacre during another IDF operation to stop Palestinian terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians.

-Not sharing with your English readers what we openly say in Arabic: that we view any truce as just an opportunity to rearm for our next war against Israel (as our spokesman, Musheer Al Masri, recently declared on TV).

-Not underscoring that Israel can do nothing to make peace with us (after all, Israelis ended their occupation of Gaza in 2005 and we’ve been rocketing them ever since). It’s a bit nervy of Israel to use its border controls to limit our ability to rearm and rebuild cross-border attack tunnels, but — with your help — maybe the next cease-fire will remove Israel’s blockade so that we can more easily replenish our weapons and restore our tunnels for our next attack. And yes, we’re embarrassed that our fellow Arab Muslims in Egypt also choose to blockade us because of the problems that we’ve caused them.

-Not reminding readers, when you mention potential truce arrangements, that world powers are no more capable of ensuring a demilitarized Gaza than they were capable of disarming Hezbollah in south Lebanon.

Seriously, you’ve been AMAZING. Please keep it up!

Love,

Hamas

p.s. Many thanks also to the countless protesters around the world who follow your lead, embolden us, and make us look legit!

    One would have thought that after the slaughter of six million Jews, the then silent media would now stand up for Israel and their right to respond to the horrible barrage of rockets they have had to endure for years since giving up Gaza (under world pressure). But the anti-Semitism of years ago has never gone away and the media is once again showing their true colors and their hatred for Israel and the Jewish people. Thank G-d for Israel. The prayers of all just and righteous people are with you in your struggle to survive and fight against terrorism. Continue the fight!

    Brilliant article -

    Things will not change until ISIS arrives in America – already have –

    Einstein; doing ths same thing to expect different results is insanity

    What would Einstein do?

    Bombard Palestine to the nth derivative of what it is and deport the survivors to Yarmouk, an Arab Muslim camp in Syria or any other 50 camps for Arab Muslims scattered between Syria, Jordan and Lebanon.

    The Tecumseh Sherman way is the Muslim way

    Am I my Brother`s Keeper? When it is in my interests. I am my family`s keeper.

    What is in my interests is to see Gaza eliminated from Human memory.

    Israel has taken the opinions ( from vile Europeans, the US Democrat party, unemployable academics, and even some vile Republicans such as James Baker III, et al.) as fact.

    Israel has taken the facts from its citizens as opinion. This idiocy began in 1973:

    Yom Kippur War ( Golda Meir )
    Sinai Surrender ( M. Begin )
    Entebbe, the entire airport should have been burned and much more of Amin`s soldiers should have been killed and all military equipment should have been taken
    South Lebanon Surrender ( Barak or Bibi )
    Gaza Surrender ( Ecch Olmert )

    I do not know who owns the Bank of Israel. I assume that it is Rothchild. It is an issue because it is their goal as is the goal of Rockefeller to keep us all in a stateof chaos and turmoil so we cannot see what they are doing.

    Israel has been in such a state since 1947. Time to minimize the stress. First thing is to eliminate Gaza from Human memory.

  • El Cid

    Excellent.As a connoisseur of sarcasm (or is it irony?), I loved it

    Sadly, irony is lost on 99 percent of the population.

    If you said “We hate Jews, therefore I hope the Muslims kill them all”, you would have a much more enthusiastic audience since they could understand that.

    .

    • EamonnDublin

      “El Cid” – With respect, I think we can ALL understand it, thank you. What might make you think that you have the monopoly on intelligence and/or cognitive reading ability? By the way, strictly speaking, the piece is “sarcasm” rather than “irony”. Ah, I get it now – YOU were being sarcastic. No? Éamonn, Dublin, Ireland.

      • luckyintheorder

        Crazy prog. Not sure the masses need defending if what you believe is true. Of course, prog beliefs don’t hold with the idea of discernment or uniqueness. Sorry to be the bearer of this news to you. You aren’t special, discerning or deserving. Plug back into the common consciousness all you prog’s share and ignore the truth as per usual.

        • EamonnDublin

          “LuckyInTheOrder” – Are you for real? I was referring – quite obviously, and as politely as I could – to the presumptuous comment of “El Cid” that “irony is lost on 99% of the population”, when he clearly does not even understand the very subtle difference between “irony” and “sarcasm”. I was also referring to his insulting remark that, if worded differently, the audience might then “understand” the article. You, on the other hand, appear to have a particular difficulty in comprehension. Nowhere did I even hint at claiming to be “special”, “discerning” or “deserving”. I have no idea whatsoever why you call me a “prog”. A progressive, left wing liberal I most certainly am NOT. I fully agree with the article and I STAND WITH ISRAEL. A little advice – don’t be so damned presumptuous!! Best Wishes, Éamonn, Dublin, Ireland.

          • luckyintheorder

            Your commentary looked a lot like a typical liberal deflection. I used to believe that people had the capacity for understanding truth from lies, fact from fiction, believed in the American dream etc… In the US; they cannot. High IQ’s or not. Educated or otherwise. Worldly or naïve. Appreciate your stance for right. It is hard to resist arguing like a Prog when facing it daily. I took a license. In the US approximately 42% think things are going well, support Obama’s initiatives, pray for our destruction, believe they are the victim, or any combination of these and more that put them at odds with common sense IMO.

          • EamonnDublin

            Hi “Lucky” – What a great response! Thank you, you are a gentleman. My apologies if I went somewhat over the top in my own response to your good self. My only excuse is that I was almost traumatised at being called a “prog”!!! I have been described in Ireland as more right wing than even Michael Graham – the Boston radio man. If you don’t know him, google him and listen to him, then you will know how right wing I am!
            Same as yourself no doubt, I am actually frightened for the welfare of my young grandchildren here in Ireland. The amount of total apathy with regard to the threat of Islamism is of major concern to me. The people swallow up what the media tells them, and what the media is saying is “West Bad, Hamas Good”, “West to Blame, Islam is Peace”. FRIGHTENING!! There is even one stupid Senator here who has succeeded in recalling our Senate to discuss the EXPULSION of the Israeli Ambassador to Ireland!!!!!!!!! How mad can one be?? The more frightening aspect is that she got sufficient support for the recall!! I am sure she won’t succeed, though, and, even if she does, the Senate in Ireland has no power, it’s just a talking shop. The power here lies in “Dáil Éireann” – our parliament. Still, there are plenty of mad men and women in that also, who support Hamas and all the “Spring” terrorists. Enough from me, Sir! Your Friend, Éamonn, Dublin, Ireland.

          • luckyintheorder

            In the US, we are concerned with Obama and Holder; but worldwide the Muslim threat is certainly the biggest issue (may be one and the same). Scary how all the politicians, judges and low level bureaucrats have been bought off and the electorate has no say. Right is wrong. Embarrassed by our State department daily. Such reckless, inane hate in regards to Israel. Wishful thinking says reason will ultimately prevail when enough people feel the pain; reality is Muzzies are training hyper militant youths and ours are being told to doubt their beliefs, history or right to self determination. Islam is a very real threat in Europe today. It may be too late to turn it back with the milquetoast leadership and legitimatizing of Sharia over the majority populace. Need some caffeine. Sorry for droning on.

        • EamonnDublin

          Mein Gott!! I just now had a glance at some of your other posts. You really do have “progs” on the brain, don’t you! Just make sure you get the proper label in future! Again, Best Wishes, Éamonn.

  • Dyer’s Eve

    As all the Lefties are being nailed to the cross, they’ll be screaming for those they’ve spent decades persecuting to rescue them. That’s the rub. That’s what makes me sick. From their skinny legs to their hatchet faces, my blood boils. I’d love to say so much more, but it wouldn’t get printed.

  • USARetired

    We will, “F” you Hamas!

  • V-O

    Brilliant, and share worthy.

  • DogmaelJones1

    Great satire, world-class of Daniel Greenfield, as well! The next time you see an MSM talking head reporting that Israel is “intransigent” and a child-hating and mother-killing bully, throw a shoe at the talking head!

    • Softly Bob

      No thanks, that’s what Muslims do. I’d rather throw a bottle or my fist.

    • IslamDownpressesHumanity

      This article was written by Noah Beck, not Mr. Greenfield.

      • DogmaelJones1

        I stand corrected.

  • John Kinory

    Excellent.
    Sadly, the virulently antisemitic media (BBC, CNN etc) won’t get it.
    The braindead antisemites who lap up the BBC and CNN won’t get it.

    • Boris

      They get, but they’re long since bought and paid for.

    • Johnny Paleswine

      Career Army leaders, unemployable in the real world, do not get it!!!

      Lt. General Michael Flynn – destroying Hamas would be worse

      Madeline Allbright – Israel must restrain itself to keep its moral authority.

      Both are saying the same thing: Israel, keep taking it.

      I would drag these two unemployable clowns to Sderot in Israel, tie them to telephone poles and watch them beg for their lives when the rockets begin falling.

      Both work for Rockefeller who wants us to live in a fishbowl of war, turmoil, and chaos. These two know who pays their pension.

      But Bibi is doing as they say as did Sharon.

  • Reese

    So glad to read this as it says exactly what I feel. I’m so sick of the lies from Islamic Supremacists and those “news” media people and Hollywood and “academia” who give them cover. They all have a lot of innocent Jewish and Judeo-Christian blood on their hands.

  • liz

    The media is nothing more than a propaganda machine for leftists and their Islomofascist cronies. Hard to fathom how they can live with themselves.

    • Softly Bob

      It’s easy to live with yourself when you possess no brain, no conscience and no soul.

    • IslamDownpressesHumanity

      But who exactly is whose crony? I’d imagine the party w/the bigger wallet.

  • Not_Anti_Semite_Just_Anti_Zion

    You are one heartless mother fucker. I wish the same pain and destruction upon you that the Gazans are feeling right now. May your children suffer the same way the children of Gaza are suffering now.
    Maybe then your heart might know some humanity.

    • Dai

      His kids will never suffer the shame and absurdity of being muz.

    • Santos2

      If you’re muslim, you don’t know what humanity is. You are all vicious murdering cutthroats.

    • smarbag77

      If the children of Gaza are suffering it is because of their leaders who are savages and use them as human shields. Wake up you utter fool and stop defending the cult of death.

    • John Crawford

      Perhaps you would explain just how the suffering of those people is the fault of Israel? After all, Israel NEVER initiates violence against Gaza. Israel allowed, and cooperated with, the supply of huge amounts of concrete and other materials to Gaza, most of which Hamas (with the willing cooperation of Gazan’s) has used to attack Israel!
      Semper fi

      • Softly Bob

        The clown has obviously not read the article but like most mentally-challenged people has made a cringing misinformed comment due to his inability to understand reality or to think rationally.

        • John Crawford

          I think you are right.
          Semper fi

        • ruth rosenstock

          when you’re a Jew-hater like this person, you can’t process facts and reality and stuff like that. the hate clouds your mind and makes you unable to think.

          my favorite part of his/her comment is the screen name:not anti-Semite just anti-Zion. uh-huh.

          • Softly Bob

            That’s like calling yourself “Not racist just hates Blacks and Asians”.

    • Softly Bob

      A stupid comment from somebody who is clearly incapable of actually reading an article.
      Of course the Gazans are suffering, peabrain but not at the hands of Israelis.
      You really are embarrassing and people like yourself who make poorly thought comments are an example of why certain individuals should not be allowed to roam the internet on their own without the guidance of a grown-up. My advice to you is to never, ever comment on any public website again until you learn how to handle sharp objects safely, tie your own shoelaces and have mastered the basics of simple toilet-training!

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Forget media, most humans have taken the side of the terrorists. Just human nature, I suppose.

    • Scott Henke

      I was thinking about this, too. When did it suddenly become so hip to support terrorists?

      • Kira Des

        It’s an ongoing competition to see who’s the most ‘forgiving, good person.’ So when you forgive terrorists AND take their side, you’ve the best chance of victory so you can pat yourself on the back for your own moral superiority. Even if it leads to death & destruction.
        That’s how it is in convoluted Islam-apologists’ mind, anyway.

    Excellent article…for a jew

    Anybody remember the film ‘Dead Zone’ starring Christopher Walken?

    Remember Martin Sheen’s character?

    A great role model for Hamas!

  • jukin

    The NYT and the democrat controlled American media of the time were also big fans of Hitler. Good to see democrat media being consistent.

  • Eddie Heramia

    This is the true current state of the International Media as being ‘biased.’
    They are doing this prejudice ever since.

    Awesome.

  • Kerri Feldman

    Excellent article. Thank you. Keep up the good work.

  • CaMaven

    They forgot to thank the useful idiots who spread the MSM crap, too.

  • Piikki

    Great propaganda. Let’s just forget everything about illegal colonies, Likud forbidding to even discuss about Palestinian state (same as Hamas about Israel) and all war crimes IDF has done or allowed others to do in the past. Let’s also forget that Israel has violated countless resolutions from United Nations.
