The Al Qassam website of Hamas writes, as one of its top stories, “On Tuesday evening, a Zionist usurper was seriously injured due to stone throwing by rebel youths near the town of Huwwara, south of Nablus in the occupied West Bank….The health of the usurper is unstable and he is unconscious and on artificial respiration.”
The actual story from Arutz-7:
A 14-year-old Jewish boy from Samaria was injured Tuesday night when a Palestinian Authority Muslim hurled a rock at his head near the town of Huwara.
The youth was taken by Magen David Adom to Schneider Children’s Medical Center, where he is unconscious and on a respirator in the intensive care unit. He is scheduled to undergo surgery at 12:00p.m. on Wednesday.
Initial investigations show that the attack occurred after a vehicle carrying several Jews stopped at the Huwara intersection, on the main road leading to the towns of Yitzhar, Itamar, and Elon Moreh. At the time, the youth and his brother were dancing to the sound of Purim music.
When a vehicle with several Arabs passed near them, the Arabs began cursing and attacking the Jews. Several other Arabs then arrived, attempting to block the Jews from continuing their journey.
Eyewitnesses said that the Jewish boy entered his vehicle in order to leave the scene, but one of the Arabs threw a block at his head from a short distance away, and the missile broke through the car’s window and hit the boy on the head.
The vehicle driven by Jews succeeded in continuing its journey until the main Yitzhar Junction, where they met IDF forces who provided first aid to the critically injured youth.
There are three things to learn from this.
One is that Hamas remains as disgusting and immoral as ever, as it wants to highlight that a Jew injured by being hit in the head with a large rock is a victory for Palestinians altogether.
Two is that, as usual, the perversions of Hamas do not get condemned or disparaged in any way by the rest of the Palestinian media. This is expected behavior, and not anomalous.
Three is that Israel’s defenses have left Hamas largely impotent that it feels the need to brag about something that it had nothing to do with and that was a far cry from the terror attacks that Hamas used to perform with near impunity. They are losing relevance, and they are desperate to make themselves feel relevant again.
