Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Hamas of cynically exploiting Palestinian deaths to create striking televised images that will garner international sympathy.
In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Sunday, Netanyahu said Palestinian members of Hamas “don’t care” about the casualties they have inflicted on their own people.
“These people are the worst terrorists — genocidal terrorists,” he said. “They call for the destruction of Israel and they call for the killing of every Jew, wherever they can find them.”
“They want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can,” Netanyahu added. “They use telegenically dead Palestinians for their cause. They want the more dead, the better.”
They aren't telegenic--they've been on my Twitter feed for the past more than a week. They aren't telegenic after what happened. Yes, Hamas raises money over these dead bodies. But hey--how's about this? Why be willing to send a missile through a bedroom with children on the 3rd floor to hit Hamas in the basement?
No doubt Hamas raises money on dead kids. No doubt they gin up sympathy and stuff--but the real way to shut it down?
Don't add to their martyrs. Shut them down by proving them wrong. For once just say--ain't Hamas some shit? Fuck them, and then don't actually fuck over Palestinians in Gaza. I dunno. I think it could work.
