Hamas calls on Gaza kids to form a human shield

Following threats of an airstrike on the home of Hamas terrorist Abu Hatal on Thursday night, Hamas' al-Aqsa television called on all Gaza children to form a human shield to protect the terrorist in the A-Shouqaf quarter of Gaza City.

Let's go to the videotape. I'll have a comment at the end. Hat Tip: Israeli Girl.

There is a difference between Hamas' use of human shields and their use in other combat zones. In other combat zones, the party using the human shields is seeking to protect its assets. In Hamas' case, they are hoping the human shields (often children) will die so that they can gain political capital using the deaths.

If you have not done so in the last 24 hours, please go vote for my blog, Israel Matzav, as the Best Midsize blog in the 2008 Weblog Awards. Thanks.

Carl are you sure that's what it says?

The cowardly vermin would prefer to have children killed than die like men. Gil Ronen, they don't deserve acknowledgment as warriors - I mean the enemy.

Gil Ronen,

My Arabic is non-existent so I am dependent upon the translations. I have no reason to believe that the translations are incorrect.
