Today was the 24th anniversary of the Hammas terror organisation. In a large congregation of some 350,000 Gazan Palestinians who probably have not yet had enough with destruction and death, blood and tears, the organisation committed to continue its terror attacks until the final victory and the freeing of Palestine. Hammas also proudly presented the following statistics.
During its twenty four years of terror activity, the organisation:
Launched 11,000 rockets and mortars into Israel
Killed 1,365 Israelis
Wounded 6,411 Israelis
Carried out 1,117 terror attacks, 24 of which included kidnap
And what is Israel’s failing public relations system planning to do with these cheerful statistics? Did the foreign minster invite all foreign ambassadors to a special meeting in which they were presented with this data alongside photographs and video clips describing what it is like to be on the receiving end of such activity? Did the UN Security Council receive an urgent demand to hold a special meeting and discuss Hammas’ terror? Was there a special news conference held in the Prime Minister’s office in which he described in his excellent English Hammas’ history of which the organisation is so proud?
Listen to and watch the news this evening – perhaps I have missed something.
