The hypocrisy of Hamas

If you thought the hypocrisy of the NZ Herald was bad, how about Rachel Smalley’s favourite terror group Hamas.

They have come out condemning the violence in Paris perpetrated in the name of ISIS and Al Qaeda, their sponsors and brother in terror, but just a few short weeks ago were celebrating the terrorists who killed four worshippers in a synagogue in Jerusalem.

Hamas has been advocating violence and hatred since it’s founding in 1987. The organization has executed horrific terror attacks, and continues to glorify martyrdom and indoctrinate youth, encouraging them to become terrorists. Yet, following the attack on the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris, Hamas suddenly decided to condemn violence, stating that, “differences of opinion and thought cannot justify murder.”

On Wednesday, January 7, twelve people were murdered by terrorists at the Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris. The terror attack shocked France and the international community as a brutal offense on freedom and democracy.  Many leaders around the world sent their condolences to the French people and condemned the violence and terrorism they have faced.

Surprisingly, one of the organizations to condemn the attack was Hamas. On Saturday, January 10, the terror organization released a statement in French and Arabic saying that Hamas “condemns the attack against Charlie Hebdo magazine and insists on the fact that differences of opinion and thought cannot justify murder.”

This statement is proof of Hamas’ blunt hypocrisy and double standard. Only a few months ago the terror organization celebrated the death of Israeli civilians and praised the terrorists who performed the attacks.

On November 18, 2014, terrorists murdered five Israeli civilians in a synagogue in Har Nof, Jerusalem. The terrorists entered the synagogue during morning prayers and attacked the men with a rifle and a knife. Hamas’ reaction to this attack was far from condemnation.  

Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas spokesman, called the attack a “heroic action.”

Masri also published a photo of the attackers, calling them heroes.

Additionally, he posted an alarming cartoon in order to promote the attack on social networks.


Husam Badran, responsible for Hamas’ foreign relations, described the attack as a “quality action.” In another post, he wrote: “A message to all members of national security in the West Bank. You are trained and you have the weapons and the ability to act. There is no doubt that there are many patriots amongst you. Now, you can see the young people of the West Bank are fighting without weapons. Some of you can make a significant change in the resistance. Turn your weapons against your enemies and ours. Write your names in the true list of honor.”

This double standard on the issue of targeting civilians reveals the extent of Hamas’ hypocrisy.

It is sickening that an organisation that kills homosexuals and drags them behind motorbikes, puts their own women and children in harm’s way as human shields to protect their weapons, uses aid monies, equipment and supplies to build attack tunnels instead of building infrastructure for their people and whose own charter preaches death to all Jews has the temerity to come out and pretend they abhor violence.

Of course watch now as the media laps this up and praises Hamas for their enlightenment…and then come the summer the rockets will rain down once again on Israel’s civilian population.
