Tachles: A modern Hebrew word of Yiddish origin that means “to the point.”


Since the barbaric attack by Hamas terrorists on October 7th, Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar, also known as “Little Hitler,” has seemingly disappeared from the face of the earth. But it’s only a matter of time. Israel will kill Hamas leaders not just in Gaza, but around the world. Benny Gantz said this recently in the War Cabinet. “There will be no cities of refuge and no safe places. We will go wherever we have to go to eradicate child murderers, above ground or underground, in Gaza or around the world,” said the former defense minister and IDF chief.

The Hamas leaders Israel is targeting include the head of the terrorist organization’s political bureau, Ismail Haniya, the aforementioned head in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar, the commander of the so-called “military” wing, Mohammed Deif, the deputy commander of the ” “military” wing, Marwan Issa, the head of the “military” wing in Judea and Samaria, Saleh al-Arouri, and the former head of the politburo, Khaled Mashal. Except for Sinwar, Deif and Issa in Gaza, the rest of the top terrorists are enjoying life in Qatar, and Arouri lives in Lebanon. But now agents from Israel’s Shin Bet security service are working deep in the Gaza Strip to locate the three terrorist chiefs. According to various sources, these rats fled to the south.

Heads of the Hamas snake.

For this reason, the Israeli armed forces want to expand the war to the south of the Gaza Strip to capture all three. Currently, Israeli forces, including special forces, operate mainly in the center of Gaza and in various hospitals. To do this, Israel evacuated almost a million Palestinians to the south so that they were spared the shooting and bombing in the north.

A new report says Israel has dropped thousands of leaflets over Khan Yunis in the southern strip in recent days, urging Palestinians to vacate their homes as the IDF also prepares for military action in southern Gaza. There are concerns in Europe about Israel’s intensity of increasing ground activity, despite publicly supporting Israel’s right to self-defense. The Europeans fear that the expansion of the ground offensive in the southern Gaza Strip will lead to widespread destruction. The only reason European governments are worried about the crackdown in Gaza is that the pro-Palestinian demonstrations in major European cities are giving them a headache.

The first message from Muhammad Deif came early in the morning of October 7th, before 8 a.m. “We have warned the enemy in the past,” Deif emphasized in the ten-minute recording, and demanded of his people: “Carry out the attacks with all means and tools at your disposal.” Deif then turned to the Israeli Arabs: “Our people in the interior, in the Negev, in the Galilee and in the Triangle, are attacking and lighting the fire under the feet of the occupiers. The time has come for all Arabs and Islamists. Let us unite to drive the occupiers from our holy places and our land.” Deif is more of a phantom, of whom there are only three photos from his twenties. Is he even still alive? If so, then he is still in the Gaza Strip, also in the south.

Yahya Sinwar released his first and last message on October 28th. “We are ready to make an immediate agreement for a full hostage exchange, the release of all Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons in exchange for the release of all hostages held by the resistance,” he stated at the time. Israel’s army spokesman, Brigadier General Daniel Hagari, called his words “psychological terror.” A week later, Israel’s Defense Minister Yoav Gallant declared that Sinwar would be killed, and in the background of his statements was a photo of Sinwar and his brother Mohammed, also a senior Hamas official. “Sinwar is hiding in a bunker and is completely isolated from his surroundings.” Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu compared Sinwar to the Nazi Führer: “Sinwar behaves like a little Hitler in the bunker. He doesn’t care in the slightest about the Palestinian people.”

Since then both Deif and little Hitler have been silent in their holes. According to Israeli sources, all the leaders are hiding separately in different underground bunkers in the Khan Yunis area in the southern part of the Gaza Strip, where the civilian population has fled. Israel’s former prime minister Ehud Olmert gave a hint in a television interview with Euronews: “We have not yet reached the core of the operation. Khan Yunis in the southern part of the Gaza Strip is the actual headquarters of Hamas. The entire Hamas leadership is hiding there, in bunkers and command centers and there are also rocket launch pads there.” The Israeli army has operational plans for Khan Yunis ready. The only question is whether Netanyahu retains the courage to carry out the complete destruction of Hamas. The public and the soldiers remain dedicated to this mission.

But this shows what vile cowards these Hamas terrorists are. They slaughtered babies, pregnant mothers, children and civilians shouting “Allah hu Akhbar” and now these terrorists are hiding behind the Palestinian civilian population because they are afraid of the Israeli soldiers, including little Hitler.

It may well be that the silence of these Hamas leaders is for the same reason Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah kept mum in the first days of the war. Tactics. Many experts analyzed the reason for Nasrallah’s silence at the beginning of the war, especially since it concerns a person who speaks often and willingly, but always from his bunker. He wants to confuse Israel. Nasrallah knows that even if he just lifts his head out of the hole, he will immediately be somewhere else. Nasrallah justified his silence in the past by saying: “Silence is part of a political, media, psychological and military fight against the enemy. This silence signals wisdom and confuses the enemy. Sometimes the answer is not to react.”

But unlike Deif and Sinwar, Nasrallah has already given two long speeches in the last four weeks. In the Gaza Strip, with no electricity and no internet, it’s more complicated for little Hitler to give bombastic speeches from underground tunnels. In addition, there is a risk that Sinwar and Deif will reveal their hiding place. The safest thing to do is to work without digital devices or telecommunications, and rather stick to analog, pieces of paper, and only with people who are very close to you. You can’t publish speeches like that. Israel’s army has plans to drive these “rats out of the tunnels,” but it’s better not to talk about it. Either way, little Hitler will ultimately meet the same fate as great Hitler.

    I think a better name for him is son of Haman. While Hitler was vile, the sons of Hamann are far worse. Hitler actually wanted other countries to take the Juden but the Goy to their shame would not. Shame shame shame!
    I actually have a unique theory and i would like you (Aviel) to explore it. I think that Soros is systematically working to destroy western countries that refused to help the Jews when they should have. You know what they say “payback’s a bitch”! What do you think Aviel?

  2. Lennie Joensen says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised, if he is hiding with his friends in Norway, the Prime minister. . . He has given billions to Hamas. It is such a disgrace, because Norway was once a Christian country. I am, of course, joking a bit, but not entirely.
    I want so badly to see the hostages freed!
    Israel cannot live with those Gazans anymore, and as Mossab Hassan says about Hamas: “go to your friends in Algeria”, I say that this should apply to all Gazans.
    What do you people think of the mentioning of Gaza in Zephaniah chapter 2, I’d like to know?

  3. psalm100al says:

    Hello Lennie
    Having studied the scriptures it suggests Zephaniah 2 is God’s judgements on the present day Philistines and all Muslims at the second advent of Jesus Christ. Cross reference with Amos. 1/6-8; Zechariah. 9/5-6 and Jeremiah. 47/5.
    Please correct me if you think otherwise. Shalom.
