Hamas starts Gaza boy band

Thursday, November 15, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

The Hamas terrorist organization continued its foray into the entertainment industry this week with the creation of a "boy band" in the Gaza Strip.

The members of the band, named "The Protectors of the Homeland," are all Hamas gunmen.

A Hamas spokesman told Sky News that the band's purpose is to "raise [the public's] spirit through entertainment and encourage the troops."

Contrasting the songs of love and sex that are the typical fare of Western boy bands, The Protectors will sing about dead terrorists, Islamic values and wresting control of "Palestine" from the Jews.

Last month, Hamas announced that it had begun construction on a $200 million movie production studio in Gaza. The studio, which will be used to produce propaganda films against Israel, is being built on the ruins of a former Jewish community uprooted during Israel's 2005 withdrawal from Gaza. Modeling its plans on the example of Universal Studios in Hollywood, the Hamas studio compound will eventually sport Gaza's first major amusement park.

The expensive entertainment projects are being undertaken despite constant Palestinian whining about the economic hardships under which Gazans are suffering.
