Hamas spokesman defends policy of using civilians as human shields

Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri went on Hamas TV July 14 to defend the terror group’s policy of keeping civilians in war zones and said they were leading them to their deaths, according to Palestinian Media Watch.

Zuhri said that those criticizing the high civilian death toll were “defeatists” and should look at the history of Algeria.

“In 1945, in a single day in Algeria, 45,000 Algerians died,” Zuhri siad. “It wasn’t described in Algeria’s history as forsaking the blood of the Algerians.”

The Hamas spokesman said they weren’t leading their population to execution, but then he made a slip of the tongue.

“We’re leading them to death — I mean, to confrontation,” Zuhri said.

    Benjamin Netanyahu hit it right on the head when he said: “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”

    • I love Bibi! He also says if Hamas put down their weapons, we would have instant peace. If Israel put down their weapons, their would be no Israel. (I’m paraphrasing) but it is so true.
