Hamas Hails ‘Heroic Operation’

Israel Today — Average Palestinians and those in positions of power again demonstrated their commitment to and desire for peace with Israel by praising and celebrating a brutal terrorist attack in Tel Aviv on Wednesday morning, when a 22-year-old Arab man boarded a public bus and stabbed 17 Jews.

The cartoon to the left was published just hours after the attack, and was enthusiastically shared by Palestinians on social media and displayed by local Arab news agencies. The character in the cartoon celebrates the stabbing of 10 “Zionists” (the original casualty figure provided by police) next to a sign that reads “Occupied Tel Aviv.”

Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq took to Twitter to hail the attack as “heroic and daring.” Another Hamas leader, Husam Badran wrote on Facebook that the group “praises this extraordinary act and calls for more devotion, as well as individual and collective resistance.”

It should be noted that Hamas is the ruling authority in Gaza, and is still being courted by “moderate” Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas in order to form a unity government.

Speaking of Abbas, who by mid-morning had failed to condemn the Tel Aviv attack, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that he and his regime in Ramallah were as much to blame for the bloodshed as anyone.
