Hamas spokesperson Ghazi Hamad said Israel's existence "was illogical" and said the terror group will repeat its attacks on the Jewish nation as it did on October 7. He said the group was not "ashamed" of doing so.
In an interview with Lebanese TV channel LBC on October 24, which was translated and published on Wednesday by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Ghazi Hamad, a Hamas spokesperson said, "We are not ashamed to say this with full force. We must teach Israel a lesson and we will do this again and again."
He said Israel is a country that "has no place on our land and said Palestinians were "victims of occupation". He also called for "the occupation to end".
When asked whether that meant the annihilation of Israel, he replied, "Yes, of course."
"We must remove that country because it constitutes a security, military and political catastrophe to the Arab and Islamic nations and must be finished," he said.
The existence of Israel is illogical. The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood, and tears. It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On October 7, October 10, October 1,000,000 -- everything we do is justified," Hamad said.
Recently, Hamad abruptly ended an interview conducted by a reporter from the British news network BBC and walked out when he was repeatedly asked to justify the slaughtering of civilians by Hamas when it attacked Israel.
Oy freakin vey!
So,...on SS, three of us, i.e., OD and pb and DONNA, have stated specifically, that we are opposed to all of the evil committed by anyone.
Among we three, OD and pb...pb thinks... essentially agree on our take on how to understand the evil. Donna, it seems, has a distinctly different view.
So, to Donna...and to anyone who takes the same view or thinks they understand what Donna believes:
Since you oppose all of the evil, based on what Hamas did and continues to say, what's your idea about how to move forward in mitigating the horror?
