Bizarre Hamas propaganda video

This is one of the most bizarre pieces of propaganda I have ever seen. Is it supposed to convince us that Hamas won?

Let's go to the videotape.

Shabbat Shalom everyone.

Shabbat, Shalom Carl!

It is bizarre, the extent to which Hamas goes on to convince itself Israel has been defeated. The fantasy and reality of Gaza are completely inverted from its assertions of a "great victory." After all, to succeed, even a Big Lie must have a kernel of truth to it. There isn't one here.

Don't mean to muddy the water but... Since Hamas won, when are they going to open the border crossings and lift the inhuman blockade that they've placed on Israel? And - if I may be so bold - when is the UN going to condemn them for their barbaric apartheid and insist that it be lifted? Just curious.

Right Israel was defeated. Hamas got a break from Barry O.

israel has been condemned worldwide. israels reputation is 'mud' and is being investigated for war crimes. the sympathy of the world is for the palestinians. the IDF has been shown to be a inhumane undisaplined army.
hamas has shown to be the real resistance against occupation while fatah can only survive with israel help and has been discredited in the eyes of the palestinians.and the rocketys continue.
none of israels aims were acheived only if you call genocide a acheivment.

Now that was just sad. Really, really sad. Such no talents. If Hamas were to declare an actual victory, it would have to be over the UN and its aid trucks.

Random funny thoughts about this video.

Music is good.

Animation is good.

Hamas, which does not believe in music, or movies, very obviously stole it.

Had this been Hamas produced, and not a cheap edit of someone elses fine work, it would have had lots of green-helmet guy, ululating women, if you can call them that, car swarms, and standard victim rhetoric which denies self-culpability for their situation. Which is strange insofar as they are entirely to blame for their own situation.

This looks like a short from a student animation project.

I find it particularly amusing that Hamas and its useful idiots cannot produce works of their own, but must resort to stealing, and bad editing. Notice how the subtitling had nothing to do with the animation, wasn't lit the same ... obviously a low talent job.

That Hamas cannot produce good useful works of art on their own, says something very deep about them, their society, their mores. Would you want a group of people incapable of the act of self expression living near you, needing to find a convenient scapegoat for their failures as people, as a society?

The only act of creation that Hamas and its useful idiot fellow travelers have engaged in has been a performance art of (self)destruction. Self immolation as a form of expression. Doesn't lend itself to neighborly relations. Lobbing bombs across international borders does not suggest a useful vehicle for continued investment in that society.

Just some random thoughts.
