24-Nov-14: Destroying their own children's lives is not the worst option for the terrorists. In their eyes, it may even be the best

Khaled Abu Toameh, writing for the Gatestone Institute today, reviews the unsatisfied list of demands the jihadists of Hamas have made in the three months since the latest phase of their ongoing war with Israel segued into a ceasefire, explains why they are not going to get what they want, and predicts a bad outcome:
  • The only option Hamas faces, therefore, is to attack Israel again as a way of ridding itself of the severe crisis in the Gaza Strip and the growing frustration among Palestinians living there. Hamas's biggest fear is that this frustration will be translated into disillusionment with its regime. That is why Hamas is now seeking to direct the anger on the Palestinian street toward Israel... 
  • Hamas is now talking about an imminent "explosion" against Israel if the promises to rebuild Gaza are not fulfilled. Some Hamas representatives even have the audacity to hold Israel fully responsible for hindering the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip...
  • Hamas's threats against Israel should be taken seriously, especially in light of reports that the movement is continuing to prepare for another war. Hamas not only continues to dig tunnels under the border with Israel [as we wrote here: "23-Nov-14: Gaza's wealth and where it is - and is not - going"]; it has also been test-firing rockets into the Mediterranean Sea...
  • Hamas does not have much left to lose in another military confrontation with Israel. The killing of a few hundred more Palestinians in the Gaza Strip will allow Hamas to shift attention from its failure to rebuild the Gaza Strip to blaming Israel for "waging another war" on the Palestinians...
  • Hamas is also hoping that another war will further increase anti-Israel sentiment around the world and earn the Palestinians even more sympathy.
Hamas continues to funnel jihad-centric hatred into the heads, hearts and blood stream of Gaza's children ensuring a steady stream of willing cannon fodder. Of all the options open to the Gazan regime, the one that focuses on the well-being, safety and health of their people, and especially their children, comes stone, motherless last.  Bottom of the list. Not worthy of serious consideration. 

The Hamas terrorists who murdered our beautiful daughter sought a children-rich, explicitly-Jewish target and then boasted about it on camera. So we have long felt it's right, moral and essential to remind people at every chance of how the savages of Hamas see children, even their own people's children (though not necessarily their own actual offspring, as we will explain).

Last year, we quoted the Hamas regime's Minister of the Interior, an especially loathsome individual called Fathi Hammad ["27-Jan-14: In Gaza, a death cult celebrates its graduating class"]. His theme was children. Even now, it makes our blood run cold to hear the man's words:
"Sons and brothers, you do not have much time to train. Study, conduct training, become experts and be inventive, with the help of Allah. The battle will be your battle. The Jihad will be your Jihad. Palestine is your land, Islam is your religion, and Allah is your God. The Messenger is your role model, and the Koran is your constitution. You have been planted by Allah, and therefore, you will harvest the enemies of Allah in the battle to come... We pray for Allah to choose martyrs and leaders from among you – and not only in Palestine, but throughout planet Earth, so that the call for Jihad will be spread all over the world, and the entire world will embrace the religion of Allah." 
Hamad's own child needed the best possible medical care in April 2010 following a botched medical procedure in Gaza. Like other Hamas insiders, he had little hesitation in getting her across the border into an Israeli children's hospital ward. Her life was saved by the Israeli medical team. He later thanked those responsible for the act of salvation, carefully avoiding any mention of Israel. 

But in the Palestinian Arab world, sociopathic views of what children are good for are not a Hamas monopoly. Consider a Fatah (not Hamas) poster that is central to a piece we wrote here a while back ["1-Feb-12: A video that reveals more about how the war against the terrorists is going than a shelf-full of analyses"]
The text [of the Fatah poster] reads: "Our children are our honor and glory. They were created to be fertilizer for the land of Palestine, and for our pure land to be saturated with their blood." [Our comment at the time:] What kind of future do youngsters raised to see themselves as fertilizer build for themselves? And who is at fault? - because someone surely is.
The Palestinian Media Watch video ["Kids are "created to be fertilizer for land of Palestine, to saturate land with their blood""] featuring the poster above is here on YouTube.

The nausea-inducing Palestinian Arab leadership's disregard of the welfare of their own people's children is hardly a new phenomenon. Most people have heard of the famous epigram attributed to the late prime minister of Israel, Golda Meir, who said to the National Press Club in Washington nearly sixty years ago: Peace will come only when the Arabs love their children more than they hate ours. Too true then, even more strikingly true today.

So many decades; so little advancement.
