Hamas paid its fighters to attack the Israeli border
Hamas supporters in Gaza held the world’s first peaceful protest with hand grenades, pipe bombs, cleavers and guns. Ten explosive devices were peacefully detonated. There were outbursts of peaceful gunfire and over a dozen kites carrying firebombs were sent into Israel where they started 23 peaceful fires. And Israeli soldiers peacefully defended their country leaving multiple Hamas attackers at peace.The case can be made that Obama's bad deal with Iran was responsible for this operation and the deaths that ensued. Those blaming Israel or President Trump are 180 degrees out of phase. There would have been no one killed if Hamas leaders had simply told the people it placed on teh border to go home. It is not like Israel was attacking them in their homes. Will the mainstream media report Iran's part in this "performance art" by the terrorist organization? That would not fit their perferred narrative, but people should still call them on it.
"We will tear down the border," Hamas Prime Minister Yahya Sinwar had peacefully vowed. "And we will tear out their hearts from their bodies."
But the only hearts his terror thugs tore out were already bleeding with sympathy for Islamic terrorists.
The Hamas mob chanted, “Allahu Akbar” and the genocidal racist threat of, “Khaybar Khaybar, ya yahud," a reference to the primal Islamic massacre of the Jews. While IDF soldiers held back the invaders, the jets of the IAF targeted the snake’s head striking Hamas compounds and outposts. By 5.30 PM, the Hamas organizers changed course and began urging the thugs away from further fence attacks.
Hamas had offered $100 to every rioter. During previous violent assaults back in April, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group had been offering $200 to anyone shot by Israelis, $500 for severe injuries and $3,000 to the dead.
$100 a day may not seem like a lot, but the Israeli teen soldiers they’re trying to kill, earn $13 a day.
The Hamas supporting thugs are depicted as helpless, starving victims who can barely lift the firebombs they’re throwing at Israelis, but they make ten times as much as the Israeli soldiers they are there to kill.
Hamas can write all those checks to its aspiring killers because the cash is coming from Iran.
Last year, Senwar, whom Israel had released in exchange for captured Israeli hostage Gilad Shalit, had boasted that Iran was once again "the largest backer financially and militarily".
That comes out to an estimated $100 million a year.
With as many as 50,000 Hamas supporters in Gaza participating in the day’s attacks at $100 a head, over 1,000 allegedly injured at least $200 each, and another 52 allegedly killed at $3,000 each (there is no reason to treat Hamas casualty figures coming out of Gaza as anything other than propaganda), the whole thing cost Hamas and Iran $5.3 million. The unmarked cargo plane filled with foreign currency that Obama dispatched to Iran carried $400 million. That was part of a known $1.7 billion cash payment.
But the total Obama terror payments to Tehran may go as high as $33.6 billion.
