Gaza Inconvenient Truths

While watching and praying for Israel this week I have discovered three little known truths about Gaza. They are inconvenient because they do not fit the media narrative. For years now Hamas has succeeded in portraying Israel as Goliath and Gaza as David. (Ironic that they choose to pervert a Biblical story.) However, it seems for the first time Israel is gaining ground against the Hamas and PLO propaganda machine. Here are three truths about Gaza that you will not likely see on the evening news.

#1   Gazans Are More Scared of Hamas than Israel. The civilians of Gaza, including Hamas supporters, have begun to express resentment towards the militant organizations that have made their lives hell. Such expressions of dissatisfaction, both to foreign reporters and in private conversations, have become more and more common, and could well signal the beginning of unrest against Hamas. Ynet News.com

#2   Hamas Has Become a Millionaires Club. In recent media interviews, Professor Ahmed Karima of Al-Azhar University in Egypt noted that in recent years Hamas has blossomed into a movement of millionaires. According to Karima, Hamas can boast no fewer than 1,200 millionaires among its leadership and mid-level officials. That assertion was backed up by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, who in 2012 estimated the number of Gaza millionaires to be 800. Israel Today

In particular, overall Hamas leader Khaled Mashal has amassed a fortune of $2.6 billion, the Jordanian media reported. All of this is happening as many Gazans wallow in poverty and struggle with a 40 percent unemployment rate. Imagine how many new jobs could be created by all that money Hamas collects. Instead, the terror group is well pleased to see the people of Gaza suffer, both economically and as a consequence of its violence against Israel, all in service to Hamas’ ultimate goal.

#3   Innocent Gazan Civilians are Responsible Too. Gazans who claim to be victims of their rulers should have rebelled against those building missile bases under their homes. Because they have failed to do so, they will have to pay a price. YnetNews.com

Here is a link to the Hamas Charter for your information.

Believers need to pray for discernment as we read, listen and watch the news. There are innocents in great danger who need our prayers, both Gazans and Israelis.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!

Hello Les,

Just wanted to thank you for your recent post. Information like that gives us insights to share with others who seem to always be blaming Israel for any retaliation against the wrongs done to them.
