Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh boasted on Wednesday that “a million Israelis went into shock” over the latest rocket attack by Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Haniyeh’s comment came after the Israeli Air Force struck multiple targets in Gaza in response to the rocket that exploded near the town of Gan Yavne in southern Israel.

The Hamas leader claimed Israel’s threats of retaliation did not frighten the Palestinian people, and that the calculus of deterrence weighed against Israel, rather than Hamas.

Haniyeh made his comments during a welcoming ceremony for fellow Hamas leaders Mousa Abu Marzouk, who resides in Egypt, and Imad Al-Amali, who was recently reported to be living in Turkey.

According to Israeli Walla news, the two Hamas leaders had been visiting Turkey and Qatar for medical treatment. Haniyeh remarked that their return was “special and was highly meaningful.”

Haniyeh also took the opportunity to call for an end to Israel’s security blockade on the Gaza Strip, saying, “Enough with the blockade, the pain and the prisons.”

The Hamas leader rejected reports that his organization wished to establish a separate Palestinian state in the Gaza Strip.

“Gaza is a part of the lands of Palestine, and is at the forefront of the Palestinian issue,” he claimed.

    “I no longer believe that the Israelis should give back Jerusalem…

    Experience has taught us that the Islamic mentality views ANY concession as weakness to be exploited further. And besides, too many so-called Palestinians seem less concerned with peace and freedom, than with driving Jews into the sea, so the bombings would not stop.”


    “The truth is that Jews have contributed more to humanity than any other group of people; way more than Muslims, vastly more than Muslims…”

  • Joining pro-Israel organizations might help a lot.
    Pro-Israel organizations include (in alphabetical order):

    May I humbly suggest that because Orthodox Jews are increasing as a percentage of American Jews, they should also increase their participation in pro-Israel organizations, to compensate for the declining numbers of non-Orthodox Jews.

    As soon as the missiles flew out of Gaza City, all of the Hamas cockroaches evacuated their offices, military bases and posts and went into hiding; in fear of the possible retaliation from the IDF. It sure looks like it was actually the low-lives of Hamas leadership who were the cretinous evil-doers who “went into shock” over the latest rocket attack by Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip. Gazans must be so proud of their cowardly leaders.

    In the October 19,2014 online publication of the algemeiner, it was reported that the daughter of Ismail Haniyeh received medical treatment at an Israeli hospital after “suffering complications from routine treatment in a Gaza hospital.” The news item continued by reporting that Israeli hospitals also treated another grandchild of his, who died after returning to Gaza, and Haniyeh’s mother-in-law. How can this acknowledged enemy of the Jewish State (and of Jews everywhere), who seeks their annihilation, continue to be treated with such amazing deportment? I can understand providing non-Israeli Arab civilians of other nations caught up in the war against Israel receiving medical care,who can cross the border. But providing such help for the killer’s family is beyond reason and compassion.

      In the third to last line of the above post,the word “receiving” should have been replaced by “with.”
