MURDOCK: Leftists Celebrating Holocaust-Level Atrocities Show True Colors


(Deroy Murdock, Headline USA) The Blame Israel First crowd strikes again.

Hamas unleashed an unprovoked, surprise attack on the Jewish State on Saturday morning, Oct. 7, during Shabbat and the Simchat Torah holiday.

The Gaza-strip-based terrorist group’s Pearl Harbor-style onslaught included 2,200 rockets that blasted communities as far north as Tel Aviv. Regardless, Israel’s critics and enemies point their fingers at the Israelis, as if they had bombed themselves.

  • “We, the undersigned student organizations, hold the Israeli regime entirely responsible for all unfolding violence,” read a Joint Statement by Harvard Palestine Solidarity Groups on the Situation in Palestine. “The apartheid regime is the only one to blame.” Members of 33 undergraduate groups signed this communique.

This manifesto so nauseated hedge-fund billionaire Bill Ackman and other CEOs that they hope to place its signatories on a do-not-hire list.

  • Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., displayed a Palestinian flag in front of her Capitol Hill office, beside the Star-Spangled Banner. Other radical “Squad” members have slammed Israel, even as Israelis hose their countrymen’s blood from sidewalks.
  • Black Lives Matter of Chicago created an “I stand with Palestine” meme, complete with a paragliding terrorist, like those who flew from Gaza into Israel, with guns blazing.
  • Pro-Palestine demonstrators in Times Square dressed as Hamas killers. One protester waved a swastika on his cell-phone screen.

These doe-eyed dreamers and Islamofascist fifth columnists should focus on Hamas’s atrocities before they denounce Israel and defend its tormentors.

  • “We saw boys and girls bound, who were shot in the head,” Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu said in a TV address Wednesday. “Men and women burned alive. Young women who were raped and slaughtered. Soldiers who were beheaded.”

Netanyahu declared via Twitter: “Hamas is ISIS. We will crush and eliminate it as the world crushed and eliminated ISIS.”

  • “Babies with their heads cut off, that’s what [the soldiers] said,” i24 News’ Nicole Zedek reported from Kfar Aza near Sderot, just outside Gaza. “Families gunned down, completely gunned down in their beds.”
  • CNN’s Nic Robertson said, “There were so many murdered members of this Kibbutz. Men, women, children, hands bound, shot, executed, heads cut.”
  • “They killed babies in front of their parents, and then killed the parents,” said Gen. Itai Veruv. “They killed parents, and we found babies between the dogs and the family killed before him. They cut heads of the people.”
  • “A pregnant woman in Southern Israel was found by Hamas terrorists,” TV 9 Network’s Aditya Raj Kaul explained via Twitter. “They dissected her body. Her stomach was cut open and they took the fetus out with the umbilical cord. And let the unborn child die slowly out of his mother’s womb.”
  • Explosions rattled young Israelis at an outdoor concert. They ran for their lives, and Gazan gunmen mowed them down. These vermin murdered 260 music fans.
  • In a Hamas video posted on Twitter, its forces excavated water pipes, sliced them, packed them with explosives, and converted them into do-it-yourself bombs, which they lobbed into Israel. “Allahu Akbar!” a men’s chorus sings on the soundtrack.

And what was Hamas’s message to Gazans thirsty for running water? Go to Hell.

Hamas makes the PLO look like moderates. These rats resemble the Khmer Rouge.

All told, Hamas has murdered some 1,300 Israelis, according to the Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories, a humanitarian policy group.

This has been the biggest orgy of Jew killing since the liberation of Auschwitz and Buchenwald.

Conversely, Israel acts in self-defense. Any collateral damage that rank-and-file Palestinians suffer will not be because the Israel Defense Forces gunned them down in their living rooms, but because their jihadist leaders launched this genocidal bloodbath.

Hamas’s carnage has killed at least 27 Americans, at this writing. Fourteen other U.S. citizens are missing and could be kidnapped or dead.

These facts alone should quell the Far Left’s lust for Hamas. Alas, this catastrophe hurts America. Thus, too many on the Left are exactly where one typically finds them: on the wrong side of the Stars and Stripes.
