Those Palestinian terrorists are apparently busy working themselves into a frenzy:
Hamas may carry out a mega-terror attack, the Deputy Shin Bet Chief, known only as Y, told cabinet members Sunday. “There were clear orders from the Hamas headquarters abroad to Hamas here to carry out a mass casualty attack in Israel,” he said.According to Y, the Hamas leadership in Gaza is experiencing “deep strategic complications.” The organization is frustrated by its lack of success in gaining legitimacy in the international arena, particularly in Europe.
hey are also having trouble running the government, particularly in controlling internal checkpoints and, in general, in positively impacting daily life.
This situation increases the likelihood that the organization’s policy regarding terror attacks with change, in Gaza, the West Bank and possibly even outside of Israel, the deputy Shin Bet chief said.
This story strains credibility on so many fronts. The fact that Hamas is unable to radically shift “daily life” is because Israel and the international community is imposing a criminal blockade on Gaza. The mysterious “Y” – why do Israeli journalists allow themselves to be prostituted in this way? – sounds like a lovely chap.
Of course it’s possible that Hamas is re-considering launching terror attacks within Israel, but highly unlikely. Time is on their side. While the major powers have unwisely side-lined the democratically-elected group in the last year and a half, the popularity of resisting Israeli occupation is something most Palestinians continue to admire. The alternative? Mahmoud Abbas, Washington’s obedient bitch.
