Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

The young and innocent Beatles in 1964; between 1964 and 1993 violent crime skyrocketed in the United States

As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve.

While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry has recently produced a number of catchy jingles.

Putting a uniquely jihadist spin on the most influential musical act in history, some of Hamas’s tributes to classic Beatles songs have actually gone viral, becoming hugely popular not only inside Gaza and the Arab World, but developing a devoted following in London, Long Island and Weyburn, Saskatchewan.

Below, are the most viewed of all Hamas’s lovingly produced Beatles-inspired music videos:
