ĎAt least 160 children died digging tunnels for Hamasí
Jerusalem Post ^ | 07/28/2014 11:10 | JPost.com Staff

Hamas used children to help them dig numerous tunnels into Israel and Egypt, a 2012 paper written for the Journal of Palestine Studies reported. […]

In December 2011, the paper’s author, Nicolas Pelham, accompanied a police patrol in Gaza and reported that “nothing was done to impede the use of children in the tunnels, where, much as in Victorian coal mines, they are prized for their nimble bodies.”

He continued and said that “at least 160 children have been killed in the tunnels, according to Hamas officials.” …

I thought only the Israelis killed children. I’m shocked.

But Nancy Pelosi just said that hamas was a Humanitarian Organization, someone in Qatar told her it was. A Humanitarian Organization wouldn’t have children digging tunnels.

Sounds like they mistook this movie for a training video.

All joking aside, it's completely awful. I wish this would resonate more with those trying to defend the Palestinians. I cannot think of one good reason to take their side. If there were no possible chance that any could be won to Christ, I would be fine with Israel wiping them off the map.

If you don't support the Israeli state, you're not a Christian. "Palestinian Christians" are a myth.

If the subhuman savages had put in the same amount of effort in working hard and studying hard, they wouldn’t be living in mud and dirt.
Instead, their hatred for Jews is all that drives them, and they spend all their energy on killing Jews.

“Nancy Pelosi just said that hamas was a Humanitarian Organization”

Do you have a link?

It is truly amazing how many Democrat politicians have said nice things about Islamic terrorists and those who help them.

I’m sorry, but you’re wrong. When someone is in Christ they are a new creature. You are no longer a terrorist that snatches defeat from the jaws of victory. You will become a new person who will love God’s chosen people!

I meant Palestinian as a nationalist term, not as an ethnic term. The people who support the Palestinian state are, by definition, anti-Christian.

Do these children get 72 virgins? Maybe 72 lollipops instead?

Now just a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. It only counts when Israelis kill children. If Hamas, an angry father or a slaver culling his stock kill some children, that’s story of, that’s the glory of Sharia.

Maybe that’s where the flood of kids inundating the US border are going. Maybe their parents are just following Swift’s modest proposal and sending them off for a small price to become tunnel monkeys in Ghaza. So that must be what Hamas is doing. Helping the poor live within their budgets all over the world./continuation of cotton pickin’ minit post previous.

Hamas will only accept an offer of peace when they begin to love their own children more than they hate Israelis.

What kind of warped people teach the children of their own loins that the highest praise they could get from their parents is to die wile murdering innocents?

Don’t tell me..... Muslims.
