The Choice of Hamas

A new Hamas-led "security force" is active in the Gaza Strip, its aim to "ensure the safety of citizens and protect property amid a wave of instability and violence." LGF has a picture of a member of the force.

The 3,000 strong unit is headed up by Jamal Abu Samhadana, who is, according to the BBC, a militant wanted by Israel. Actually, he's a little more than a militant- he's also the founder of the Popular Resistance Committees, responsible for multiple Qassam rocket attacks on Israel.

He said- We have only one enemy. They are Jews. We have no other enemy. I will continue to carry the rifle and pull the trigger whenever required to defend my people.”

The group that this Hamas-appointed terrorist founded is responsible for a number of notable atrocities. On November 20, 2000 they bombed a bus filled with children- two adults were killed and nine children wounded. This brother and two sisters were just one group of children on the bus-

Israel lost a leg, Orit part of a foot, and Tehila was badly hurt in both legs.

Along with Islamic Jihad, the Popular Resistance Committees was responsible for the brutal murder of eight months pregnant Tali Hatuel and her children, Meirav, 2, Roni, 7, Hadar, 9, and Hila, 11.

They claimed responsibility for the ambush of an American diplomatic convoy in 2003 that killed three American citizens and left another wounded. The diplomats were on their way to interview Palestinian students for scholarships at American universities.

After his appointment, Samhadana said that the PRC would continue to attack Israel, seeing no conflict between his role as leader of the PRC and his role overseeing the police and security forces. Lest there be any doubt that the PRC or its armed wing the Salah al-Din Brigades (though the two are so closely linked as to be virtually indistinguishable) are in fact Islamist terrorists, there is an analysis of one of their posters here. As you can see, they are under the impression that verses of the Koran justify their actions.
