Hamas says most slain Gaza protesters were its members
[apnews.com]
JERUSALEM (AP) — Most of the protesters killed this week by Israeli fire along the border with the Gaza Strip were members of Hamas, the militant group said Wednesday, an assertion that deepens the starkly different narratives on both sides over the deaths.
-
In an interview with Baladna TV, a private Palestinian news outlet that broadcasts via Facebook, senior Hamas official Salah Bardawil said 50 out of the nearly 60 protesters killed Monday were Hamas members, with the others being “from the people.”
-
For Israel, it was enough to cement its narrative.
“It was clear to Israel and now it is clear to the whole world that there was no popular protest. This was an organized mob of terrorists organized by Hamas,” said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon.

Hey, don't take my word for it. That's what the Hamas Bigs are saying.

Because it's perfectly normal for people to drag children to a protest that the Israelis warned could result in dire consequences. Like Granny dragging her sick grandbaby along, knowing the kid had a bad ticker. So, yeah, they do start early despite not having a say about it.

I would just like to register my objection to the standard "every Palestinian we kill was a militant/terrorist" claim.

Hamas senior official claims it's 5 out of 6. Don't you believe him?

So, you're saying virtually all of them were Hamas...except for the children?

'K. I guess I won't argue with that, although I'm not clear that that's an a priori justification for killing them.

No, I'm saying that this is what Hamas is boasting about.

If you have an explanation as to what the Hamas official said, then tell us. he seems to be saying that 50 out of the 60 Gazans killed were Hamas members.
