Fatah acknowledges Hamas war tactics are immoral.
By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch
During Hamas’ war against Israel in May, Israel condemned Hamas for using civilians as human shields. During the war, the PA and Fatah supported Hamas’ terror campaign and even encouraged Palestinians and Israeli Arabs to riot against Israeli civilians.
However, a few months later, Fatah is acknowledging that the Hamas war tactic was immoral because they used civilians including children as human shields.
A striking example of this is Fatah’s posting the above cartoon on the official website of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture. Accompanying the cartoon showing Hamas using an infant as a shield, are the words “Without explanation.” [Website of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture, Aug. 29, 2021]
Similar criticism was expressed by Fatah in this cartoon depicting a man with “Hamas” written on him making a “V” for victory with one hand, while putting his other hand around the shoulders of a man with “The Palestinian people” written on him. The “Hamas” man is holding a target over the other man’s heart.
Palestinian Media Watch has reported on harsh PA and Fatah criticism of Hamas’ use of civilian areas to store explosives and weapons. Hamas does this knowing that Israel goes to great lengths to protect Palestinian civilians and refrain from bombing such areas.
