WATCH: Stop believing Hamas’s lies
For the latest 5-minute video from PragerU, Palestinian political analyst Bassem Eid explains how Hamas keeps the Palestinian people in misery – while blaming Israel for the people’s own suffering.
For starters, Eid says, whatever people say, Hamas is not a social justice movement. It is a criminal gang that has done nothing on behalf of the Palestinians and has a complete track record of lies.
âThey told you that the Israelis were evicting innocent Palestinians from their homes in the Sheik Jarrah neighborhood in East Jerusalem,â Eid said.
But as Eid notes, the Palestinians who lived there were in fact squatting and hadn’t paid rent for decades.
âThey told you that the Israelis were planning to destroy the Al Aqsa Mosque,â ââEid continues.
But this mosque is still there.
âHe will be there tomorrow. Say what you want about the Israelis, they are not stupid. They know that if they really try to destroy Al Aqsa, it will lead to war with all Muslim countries, âhe said.
Despite its authority, Hamas has neither the desire nor the capacity to exercise the basic functions of government.
âThe water is not drinkable; the current goes out for hours; raw sewage is washed up on your beaches. The Israelis are not responsible for these dismal failures, Hamas is. And everyone in Gaza knows it, âsays Eid.
âIt is Hamas that steals the imported cement intended to build you houses and instead uses it to build a huge network of tunnels from which it hopes to terrorize the Israelis. It is Hamas that ensures that the humanitarian aid intended for you is diverted to its privileged elites who then sell it for a profit on the black market, âhe continues.
Hamas is stationing rocket launchers in populated areas, using civilians as human shields for its operations. Israel, on the other hand, uses rocket launchers to defend people.
âIt fires missiles at the most populous areas of Israel, with no specific target. Yet I know from my sources in Gaza that up to 25% of all rockets launched by Hamas in May 2021 crashed in Gaza. Fifty civilians in Gaza were killed by these rockets, their deaths wrongly blamed on Israel, âhe said.
The money Westerners send to “rebuild Gaza” does not really improve the situation, Eid says.
âWho do you think will get this money? It won’t be you – the people who really deserve and need it – it will be the leaders of the Hamas gang and their friends who will add new rooms to their luxury villas rather than rebuilding houses, buying vaccines against it. coronavirus or to provide social services. services for their people, âhe said.
