Seeking Human Shields, Hamas Tells Gazans to Ignore IDF Warnings
Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/7/14 | Yosef Berger & Ari Soffer

Hamas has instructed Gaza residents to ignore text messages and phone calls urging them to evacuate buildings, in an apparent effort to grow its supply of "human shields." The calls and messages are sent by Israeli military officials in order to give civilians time to evacuate the area, and are communicated before the IDF targets a house terrorists were using as cover for firing missiles at Israel or for other military purposes.

The Hamas-run Palestinian Authority Interior Ministry said in a message to Gaza residents that the messages "are designed to weaken our resolve and to sow panic and fear among us, in light of the failures of our enemies. We call on Gaza residents not to pay attention to these messages and not to leave their homes."

"The message did not say whether Hamas would dispatch personnel to ensure that individuals inside targeted buildings remain inside."

Now therein lies the rub.

The devil hates humans. We are fodder for his rage. Islams false god allah is the devil. Therefore, humans getting killed for anti-Israel propaganda is all good to them and him.

Easy fix. Assume ALL buildings have terrorists and terrorist sympathisers inside. Bomb ‘em. Burn ‘em. Bulldoze ‘em.

And don’t stop until you hit the Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian, and Egyptian Borders. . .

While the chaos of rocket fire continues, the Israel Defense Forces have an opportunity to damage Hamas by waging psychological warfare.

The IDF should notify the residents of MANY houses and apartments in Gaza that they are about to be attacked by Israeli rockets — not only the ones that actually are.

The Hamas terrorists would be running all over the place trying to keep the poor, frightened citizens of Gaza in their homes awaiting annihilation. But when the annihilation doesn’t occur, imagine how the poor, frightened citizens will feel toward the Hamas terrorists who would have been happy to see them dead.

This would not be good for Hamas’s approval rating, or for recruiting new young Hamas terrorists after the war. Although if the Israeli government rises to the occasion and finally does what it needs to do to protect its citizens, it will destroy Hamas completely before it sends its soldiers home.
