One of the top Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip last week again claimed that ongoing demonstrations along the coastal enclave's border with Israel are "peaceful" in nature. With his very next breath, he encouraged local Muslims to slaughter every Jew they can get their hands on.
Speaking a funeral at the Great Omari Mosque in Gaza City, Fathi Hamad hailed the "success" of what he called "peaceful" protests at the Gaza security fence that have been going on since the end of March.
"We are making history with our peacefulness and our peaceful movement," Hamas insisted.
Contrary to Hamad's remarks, those protests have been marked by routine violence, including the flying of thousands of "fire kites" into southern Israel, resulting in the destruction of vast swaths of agricultural fields and nature reserves.
Unable to any longer resist the urge to incite at least a little violence, and exposing the true nature of the Gaza riots, Hamad blurted out:
"O Muslims, wherever you find a Zionist Jew, you must kill him because that is an expression of your solidarity with the al-Aqsa Mosque and an expression of your solidarity with… your Jerusalem, your Palestine and… your people."
