Poster on Palestinian Message Board Shocked That Hamas Targets Israeli Children
But things can turn on a dime when a Muslim woman who wants to do some Hamas hasbara shows up.
Under the topic of “Hamas kills children?” a woman with the nickname Alaa al-Qassam worriedly asked “Hello … one of the non-Arab sisters ask me about the logo in this picture? Is it true that this child is Israeli suffering from Hamas rockets?”
The logo that bothers her on the vest shows that the ambulance worker holding the injured child is from Kiryat Malachi. (A quick search shows that this photo was taken in 2012.)
Alaa clearly got into a discussion where this photo turned up, and she couldn’t believe that her beloved Hamas would ever, ever target children!
Luckily, someone came to her rescue and while he admitted he didn’t recognize the logo, he assured her that this was a Palestinian child during the 2012 fighting.
Thank Allah, a potential PR disaster was averted! Alaa thanked the person who gave her the information she was hoping to hear.
