Hamas Terrorist Disguises Himself As Journalist – Spray Paints “TV” on Vehicle, Doesn’t Work

Perhaps this Hamas approach will backfire and western journalists will pause before they sell their  insufferable propaganda from Hamas as victim news….. just perhaps.   (Via GWP) Hamas terrorist Muhammed Shamalah disguised himself as a journalist in a car marked TV.  Shamalah’s car was targeted today in a strike in southern Gaza. Muhammed Shamalah didn’t make it. The IDF Blog reported:

When terrorists disguised themselves as civilians, it can only end badly for civilians. Today, a senior Hamas operative was targeted while driving a press vehicle, effectively disguising himself as a reporter. By doing so, he risked the lives of all journalists in the Gaza Strip.

Over the past several days, the IDF has carefully pinpointed and targeted sites used by terror groups in the Gaza Strip, most notably the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad. Terrorists complicate the task by systematically using civilian facilities and locations as a cover for their operations.

The “human shield” method, as it is commonly known, has forced the IDF to target seemingly non-military targets, resulting in some of the civilian casualties. It has also endangered all residents of the Gaza Strip who, without their consent, were unwittingly dragged into the conflict.

One such example came in today, when a senior Hamas operative was targeted while driving a press vehicle. Muhammed Shamalah, commander of Hamas forces in the southern Strip and head of the Hamas militant training programs, was targeted by an Israeli air strike while driving a car clearly labelled “TV”, indicating it to be a press vehicle, abusing the protection afforded to journalists.

The incident occurred on the same day that four senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives took over a floor of the foreign press building in Gaza and used it as a meeting place, risking the lives of all journalists inside.  (article)

    Now that’s why anyone seriously interested in protecting their own sovereign soil and getting the results necessary to achieve that end just has to appreciate the Israelis: they see a problem, they solve it.

    God, give us such men to lead our nation.

    The Irony of this is funny as hell, The media (TV) hates Israel and loves palis. Yet the Palis believe that disguising their vehicles as News reporters is safe against Israeli’s.
    Thinking through an idea sure ain’t a Palestinian’s best feature.
