At demonstration with Ismail Haniyeh in Gaza Strip, thousands cheered the military wing of Hamas; ‘We emphasize with blood, fire and rifle that nobody has the right to stand before the intifada and its people.’
In a large Hamas rally on Thursday in the Gaza Strip attended by thousands of supporters, Ismail Haniyeh spoke, but a new display of hate attracted the most attention. Directly behind the speakers’ lectern was a green bus with the words “Number 12” on it—the same number of the bus blown up this week by a Hamas operative.
A picture of the Temple Mount figured in the background, and during the demonstration, an actor entered a cage where he portrayed a Palestinian detainee surrounded by Israeli soldiers. At the hate rally, at which armed members of Hamas’s military wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, young women danced, and children watched attentively.
