Hamas Explains Use of Civilians as Human Shields


We all know the cute and peaceful organisation known as Hamas. 

And we all know their slogan (apart from Death to Israel). 

"We desire death as you desire life." The UN announcement that 51 civilians have died in the conflict in Gaza must be understood in the context of Hamas's declared ideology to use civilians as human shields for Hamas fighters. Indeed, Hamas continues to emphasize and promote the religious ideology that death for Allah is an ideal to be actively pursued.
