Hamas Terrorists Reach New Low in Cowardice And Mendacity: Use Palestinian Women As "Human Shields"!Topics: Islam And The War On Terror
In a recent development in Gaza amidst the continuing violence in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, which clearly illustrates to what extent Islamic extremism, and its unreasoning, radical, fanaticism, permeates the everyday life of most Muslims, and certainly that of the greater majority of Palestinians (as when they chose to vote for the Hamas terrorists, and the perpetuation of the bloodshed, when given the unprecedented chance of having "free elections" for the first time in their history!), the local Hamas radio station, "Al Aqsa," broadcasted early yesterday morning an appeal to Palestinian women, by a high ranking Hamas leader, to come to the rescue of some Palestinian gunmen trapped by Israeli snipers, and become "human shields" for the besieged terrorists!
The terrorists, who had barricaded themselves inside a Mosque in a standoff which lasted 19 hours, were surrounded by Israeli Forces, which had them pinned down with IDF snipers.
Amazingly, hundreds of Palestinian women responded to the call and marched upon the Mosque, with the apparent intent of letting the terrorists escape in the tumult, safely nestled amidst their numbers, and foil the IDF's attempt to capture the militants. Some of the women were even seen to give their veils to some of the gunmen in order to help them escape disguised in their midst!
And even though one has to wonder to what new moral lows these Palestinian terrorists are willing to stoop in their cowardice and mendacity, as to hide themselves behind the "skirts of women" whom they would use without the least compunction as "human shields," it is encouraging that their little "blackmail" stratagem blew in their faces, and was not entirely successful as they had expected!
According to a report on the Jerusalem Post, quote:
"On Friday morning, Al Aqsa Radio, the local Hamas station, broadcast appeals to women to come to the rescue of the trapped gunmen. Hundreds responded, many of them Hamas supporters dressed in long robes and headscarves. The women marched toward the mosque, coming under Israeli fire at times, and approached armored personnel carriers and bulldozers stationed near the mosque."
"Two women, both age 40, were shot dead, and at least 10 others were wounded, hospital officials said."
"The IDF said that it suspected that some Palestinian gunmen had dressed up as women in order to foil the army's attempts to enter the mosque."
"During the battle, the roof of one of the structure's rooms reportedly collapsed, and there were dead and wounded inside.Witnesses reported that IDF bulldozers tore down one of the mosque's walls and that soldiers then used tear gas and fired stun grenades in an effort to force the gunmen out."
"Maj. Avital Leibovich said Hamas was exploiting women. "They were using those poor women as human shields," she said. "This is a clear example of use of innocent population for terror." "
"The army said the gunmen inside the mosque were able to take advantage of the demonstration to escape because there weren't enough infantrymen to block the protesters from approaching the building, and troops didn't want to shoot into the crowd."
"The army said troops spotted two militants hiding in the crowd of women and opened fire, hitting the two."
"As the women rushed away from the scene, at least two men disguised in women's clothes were seen in the crowd. Jubilant bystanders embraced them, celebrating their escape."
"More than 32 Palestinians, most of them gunmen, have been killed since Operation Autumn Clouds began."
Other sources say that most of the wounded Palestinian women had been shot in the feet and or legs by the IDF snipers, in order to thwart their efforts of rescuing the besieged terrorists, and of dispersing the crowd.
And while the ample, habitual, worldwide condemnation of Israel is, of course, forthcoming, I say Kudos to Israel and the IDF for what to me is their "laudable" reaction in the face of the heinous "blackmail" tactics of these terrorists in this "asymmetrical struggle," which otherwise becomes unwinnable!
I say Kudos to the Israeli Forces for not letting these despicable Islamist terrorists, who would use their own mothers, wives, and daughters as "human shields" to take the bullets for them and save their worthless hides from the impending justice of the IDF get away with it; exploiting our "scruples" and "sensitivities" to the advantage of their murderous cause while they themselves have non!!!
It is high time that our American military learns from the Israelis, who have been dealing with these Islamofacists for over 50 years now, and do likewise!
If the Islamist put weapons in the hands of their children who'll then shoot our soldiers down, or hide behind their women to shoot at us while we will not return the fire, or send their teenagers to blow themselves up in our midst while we hesitate to fire upon them, then it is they who are committing these heinous, abhorrent, atrocities "against humanity," and not us!!!
Yet, it is we who shrink from properly reacting, as the Israelis did, burdened by our "ethics," our "morals," and our "qualms," which, as in Iraq, the terrorists then use to inflict casualties on our brave young men and women, fighting this global Jihad thrust upon us! No wonder our casualties in Iraq keep mounting!
We must not keep letting the terrorists gain the upper hand in this "asymmetrical" conflict, by allowing them to continue to be able to resort to such stratagems, and "blackmail" us with our own scruples! If they put weapons in the hands of their children, use their women as human shields, and send their teenage suicide bombers to blow us up, so be it! I say shoot the hell out of all of them - the "Higher Moral Ground" does no good to defeated "dead soldiers" in a "savage war"!!!
Only when the Islamist scum see that resorting to such cowardly, low-life, "tactics" will not gain them an inch, will they cease to employ them!
Again, Kudos to Israel and the IDF!!!
