(Catherine Salgado – PJ Media) Realists have tried to explain to Hamas sympathizers in the West that Hamas constantly uses their own civilians in Gaza as human shields. The latest bombshell confirmation of this is that Israel reportedly identified a terrorist base under a Gaza hospital, and even released audio online of Gazans discussing how they use civilian buildings to shield terrorist activities. This is one war where it’s easy to identify the “good guy” and the “bad guy.”
Leftists love to screech and wail if a hospital or mosque or school in Gaza is bombed (though the recent publicized hospital strike was actually a Hamas rocket misfire). What they don’t tell you is that Hamas has spent years stashing weapons in, and launching rockets from, civilian buildings. Having a major terrorist base under a hospital is business as usual for Hamas. But why admit that? It would destroy the false narrative that Israel is the aggressor instead of the victim.
