‘You Son of a Dog’ – Gaza Resident Curses Hamas Leaders for ‘Destroying Us’

It seems some Gaza residents may have had it with Hamas’ leadership — if the resident in this video represents a growing sentiment in the Strip.

In an interview with Hebron radio station Al-Alam’s reporter in the Gaza Strip, Muhammad Mansour, a man damned Hamas leaders Yahya Al-Sinwar and Muhammad Deif for “destroying us.” He also cursed Al-Sinwar as a “son of a dog,” calling on Allah to “take revenge” on him:

Gaza Strip resident: “I want to convey my message to the Hamas government. May Allah take revenge on you, [and] curse your forefathers … May Allah curse you, O Al-Sinwar, you son of a dog, may Allah take revenge on you, you’ve destroyed us … We migrated from Gaza [City] to Khan Yunis, and from Khan Yunis to Rafah. We were scattered, us and our family, our wives, our children. Give the [Israeli] prisoners [back to Israel], these dogs who are in your possession … Al-Sinwar is underground, hiding together with Deif and all the disgusting ones like him.”

Palestinian Media Watch has exposed additional criticism of Hamas leaders by Gazan citizens who are fed up with their leaders sitting comfortably abroad or underground, while they are being used as human shields.

This little girl told the truth: Hamas is “underneath, in tunnels, and we — the victims who are dying — are civilians”:

This unfortunate truth has been corroborated openly by Hamas leaders, saying they “need the blood of the children” to make Palestinians willing to fight Israel.

IDF Chief Weighs in on Ultra-Orthodox Military Service, Week After New Draft Bill Proposed

IDF Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi called on the ultra-Orthodox public to mobilize for the current and future wars, a position at odds with their historic role in the state, in which they enjoy near blanket exemptions from military service.

“In these challenging days, there is one thing that is very clear: Everyone should mobilize for the defense of the homeland,” Halevi said.

He added: “This is a different era, and what was before it will certainly be re-examined. The IDF has always sought to bring into its ranks from all sections of Israeli society. This war illustrates the need to change. Join the service, protect the homeland. We have a historic opportunity to expand the sources of recruitment for the IDF at a time when the necessity is very high. We will know how to create the right solutions and conditions for any population that will join this noble mission.”

The issue of ultra-Orthodox enlistment in the IDF has been a hot button issue since the state’s establishment in 1948 and, in more recent years, the cause of wide scale backlash against the community. As part of an agreement when the state was founded, the ultra-Orthodox public was exempted completely from service. However, as the years progressed and the population grew exponentially, critics of the policy decried the unfairness of it.

A bill last week was introduced by the ruling Likud Party that called for an increase in military service time, particularly for reserve forces, yet failed to discuss the ultra-Orthodox issue. Backlash from both opposition and coalition members was swift.

Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich at the time said, “The ultra-Orthodox public is dear and loved and contributes a lot to the State of Israel, and it is now essential that it also take a more significant part in the tasks of defense and security. This move should happen out of dialogue and discussion and not by coercion or, God forbid, by defamation. Religious Zionism proves that it is possible to combine Torah study and observance of minor and severe mitzvot together with military service at the front. My ultra-Orthodox brothers, we need you!”

Halevi’s comments were his first on the highly contentious issue.
