“Hamas is using lies, terror and brutality, as usual, to try to terrorize the Israeli population into giving them what they want – which is of course, the ability to continue to kill us as soon as possible.“
Video of Three Female Civilian Hostages in Gaza
In the video the 3 women are talking in Hebrew and are “attacking” the Israeli Prim Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This is an obvious heinous attempt of the Palestinian terror group Hamas at fighting with psychological terror tactics. They are using Israeli Jewish civilians again as human shields in their attempt to rid Israel of Jews.
The Video Released by Hamas
What are They Saying?
For those who don’t speak Hebrew we have a transcript of the video in English for you:
“Bibi Netanyahu, Hello, we are being held captive! By Hamas, 23 days! yesterday there was a press conference with the families of the hostages, we know that there was supposed to be a cease fire. You were supposed to set us all free, you promised to set us all free, and instead we are suffering the consequences of the huge political, military, national and security mistakes that you made. Because of the huge mistake you made on the 7th of October, because there was no military there, no one came, no one defended us, and we are innocent civilians. We who are citizens who pay taxes to the state of Israel, are being held hostage under horrible conditions, you are killing us. You want to kill us all. You want to kill us with the IDF. It’s not enough that you killed everyone, have not enough Israeli citizens already been killed? Let it go, set us free, set us free now, set free their citizens, set free their prisoners, set us free, set everyone free, let us go back to our families! Now! Now! Now!”
What is Psychological Terrorism?
Psychological Terrorism is what Hamas, the Palestinian Islamist terror group in Gaza and the West Bank, is doing now, by releasing every week or two a new video to terrorize the Jewish people, by releasing 2 hostages out of 230+ and then making another video and then releasing 2 more then another video. This is an attempt to change the minds of the politicians who manage the Israeli war against the terrorists by putting pressure on civilians and terrorizing civilians and their families, especially the families of the hostages.
Will This Terror Tactic Work?
It is difficult to say if this terror tactic will work or not. The whole Israeli military and air-force and ground troops are now slowly surrounding Gaza City and conducting more and more raids, searching for the hostages and eliminating terrorists. It could just be a matter of time before they are all found and set free and before all of the terrorists are eliminated.
On the other hand the families of the hostages have lost trust in the government and do not believe they will ever see their loved ones again and are searching for a cease fire / hostage and prisoner swap deal. Israeli military officials are saying that Hamas is sending 2 separate signals at the moment to the world. The first signal is through back channels, Qatar, Egypt and others whom are trying to negotiate release of hostages, in these messages Hamas is saying they will not release any hostages unless Israel is “defeated” meaning, stopping all attacks on Gaza and setting free all the Palestinian terrorists in Israeli prisons, and lifting the blockade on Gaza, sending LOTS of “humanitarian” aid to Gaza, sending billions of dollars to Gaza ect ect ect – to strengthen Hamas for their next attack. All of these things are of course impossible to do as it would be suicide for Israel.
The second signals Hamas are sending is to the world, to media outlets, through videos of hostages, telling everyone that the terror group only wants to do a hostage for prisoners swap, everyone for everyone, which is a lie, they have no such plans.
Hamas is using lies, terror and brutality, as usual, to try to terrorize the Israeli population into giving them what they want – which is of course, the ability to continue to kill us as soon as possible. While sending signals to the world that strengthen their narrative and pressure Israel into giving them what they want, which is of course, the ability to continue to kill us more. Islamist terror works this way but we think that they will not get what they want and in the short and long run, Israel, the allies of human kind, will prevail over Hamas and Palestinian Islamist terror groups, who are the enemies of mankind.
