We’re all familiar by now with the tragic tale of the Palestinian girl whose family was living next door to a Hamas terrorist and who lost 5 sisters when her family’s home collapsed atfer the Hamas house next door was hit by an Israeli missile.
It’s a tragic loss of life and something no one could be happy about.
However here’s something the Western media has so far made every effort not to show, despite the fact that it’s aired on both Egyptian TV and the Palestinian Authority’s own TV network. When questioned about the incident on Palestinian TV, she places the blame for the death of her family squarely on Hamas’ shoulders – not Israel’s.
Transcript of the full interview:
Girl: We were sleeping seven girls in the room.We were asleep and didn’t know what was happening. In the morning all the bricks were on top of my head, and the heads of all my sisters. My four-year-old sister next to me was dead.
Interviewer: How many were you?
Girl: Seven. In the other room were my mother, my father, my younger brother and another sister, who is 13 days old.
Girl: I say Hamas is the cause, in the first place, of all wars, it’s Hamas.
