Hamas unknowingly acts out a verse from Psalms and talks about another ceasefire while proclaiming to “remove the occupier…from whole of Palestine.”

“I am [for] peace, and when I speak, they are for war” is written in Psalms, Chapter 120, verse 7.

As another round of missile attacks from Hamas-controlled Gaza on Israel, followed by IDF retaliation, continues, Hamas has simultaneously tried to coax Israel into agreeing to another “ceasefire” while announcing virtually the same day it is determined to continue its “resistance,” the Arab code word for terrorism.

Hamas and allied terrorists have attacked Israel with more than a dozen missiles the past week, drawing the standard military retaliation against “ticking bomb” terrorists, smuggling tunnels and weapons warehouses.

In a new media twist, Hamas spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, accused Israel of an "unjustified escalation against Gaza” without denying, or even mentioning, the rocket attacks.

Simultaneously, senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar referred on Friday to the strategy of terror-for-concessions, specifically its terrorizing Jews in Gush Katif until the Israeli government capitulated and decided not only to expel them but also to withdraw all military forces from Gaza and turn over to Hamas all of the destroyed Jewish communities.

"Hamas has developed its way and succeeded in removing the occupier from Gaza, and will remove him from the whole of Palestine,” he said during a congratulatory message on the 24th anniversary of the first Intifada, which evolved into the Oslo War, or Second Intifada, in 2000.

“[We] will always remain united and determined to liberate Palestine and its holy sites,” Hamas stated.

The terrorist organization also charged the United States and Western countries with giving Israel financial and military support but did not note that Hamas also receives Western funding.
