Yesterday, before Israel launched its counterattack against Hamas, a Hamas rocket fired from the Gaza Strip fell short of its target and killed two Palestinian sisters, ages five and thirteen. Strange, we never heard the following post-attack statement:
Once again, the cowardly, craven anti-Zionists have shown that they will stoop to any depths in their genocidal goals. The brutal deaths of these two martyrs is an atrocity and a crime committed before the whole world, and their souls cry out for vengeance. And we, the warriors of Hamas, will see that justice is brought to their murderers.
We will not rest until their killers have been identified and punished. It is incumbent on the leaders of Hamas to identify those who fired the rocket that killed the children, and to turn them over for justice. If they insist on protecting these foul, cowardly murderers, then we will bring the justice to those who protect them.
In furtherance of that goal, we have already dispatched Justice Squads to track down and interrogate the senior leadership of Hamas. And if they fail, then we will dispatch special Martyrdom Operations, shaheeds armed with explosive devices who will sacrifice themselves to take these cowardly criminals to face Allah’s justice.
I am sorry that there will be no questions, but I now see that the Noble Warriors I personally dispatched to take me into custody and interrogate me about the godless savages who fired that rocket. And if I do not cooperate, then they have clear and specific orders to execute me for collaborating with this horrible crime.
