What a shame! I wish the IDF had killed this creep!
>There are other pictures that haunt me. The Israeli army issued a video of the bombing of the Hamas-run government compound, which it posted on YouTube. In it, I also can see my home being destroyed, and I watch it obsessively.<
In other words, ole Ibrahim Barzak lived in the heart of Hamas' neighborhood in easy walking distance from their government compound. He is a member of the club. He knows the secret handshake. And since Hamas PURGED Fatah some time ago, the only explanation for Barzak being alive is that he's part and parcel of the HAMAS propaganda machine.
>Al Dera, a beautiful hotel on the Mediterranean shore, was a place where young men and women smoked water pipes and flirted, and where families went for dinner on Thursdays.
Those days are gone now.<
Ah! The good old days!
But wait! According to Barzak, there were NO "good old days", only occupation, blockade and misery. I'll bet you can find reams of his articles claiming such.
>Samir, who is 9, told me his family has no water at home and he wanted to bring enough for a bath because he and his brother smell.
That's a problem for most people in Gaza right now.<
How many of you really think this is a problem that has just recently manifested itself?
>There were few cars on the roads, and most of those were media cars, ambulances and vehicles packed with civilians. Some looked like they were fleeing, with mattresses tied to the roofs, but who knows where they can go.
Israeli helicopters flew overhead. I heard blasts in the distance. The roads were ripped apart by explosives. <
There are 22 Arab League states stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the Indian Ocean. If these states aren't welcoming Arabs from Gaza, it certainly isn't Israel's fault. But hey! Why mention that when the primary agenda of a HAMAS apparatchik is to demonize the Jews?
As an AP employee, I'll bet the IDF has Ibrahim Barzak's cell phone number. I'll bet they called him and told him to get the heck out of the way before they bombed the HAMAS government complex that is in easy walking distance of his home. If he had the courage to report that, the HAMAS might not like the fact that he was talking to "the Jews".
Khaled Abu Tomeh of the JERUSALEM POST has reported on what happens to Gazans who are suspected of collaborating with Israel. According to Tomeh's report:
>Meanwhile, sources close to Hamas revealed over the weekend that the movement had "executed" more than 35 Palestinians who were suspected of collaborating with Israel and were being held in various Hamas security installations.<
While Ibrahim Barzak plays the LIB media pity game, he knows darn well that HAMAS continues to insist that they will NOT stop attacking Israel; they will NOT end the war. Barzak knows that HAMAS is bragging about sacrificing their lives and the lives of Gaza's citizens in the holy war against the Jews. HAMAS doesn't care who they murder. Too bad Ibrahim Barzak is unwilling to report it.
HAMAS propagandists like Ibrahim Barzak deserve to be treated like a combatant.
