Het stond in zowat ieder bericht over de Gaza oorlog van de laatste tijd: ‘Israel doodde 2100 Palestijnen, merendeels burgers’, of: ‘Israel doodde 2100 Palestijnen, vooral burgers’. Soms werd het aantal kinderen nog apart vermeld. Veel van die ‘burgers’ blijken in werkelijkheid Hamas strijders te zijn. De VN, wiens cijfers de media doorgaans gebruiken, baseert zich op haar beurt o.a. op de PCHR, van wie nu al vaker is gebleken dat het strijders als burgers heeft geclassificeerd.
PCHR, that "human rights" organization that the UN relies upon to determine its death statistics from Gaza, reported on July 29:
At approximately 06:00, an Israeli drone fired a missile near a house belonging to Ahmed Sa'id all-Hashash in al-Hashash neighborhood in the north of Rafah. When members of the family attempted to evacuate the house taking their disabled mother out, the Israeli drone fired a missile at them. When a number of their relatives attempted to help them, the Israeli drone fired a third missile at them. As a result of these attacks, 6 civilians were killed: Ibrahim Ahmed al-Hashash, 16; Mohammed Ahmed al-Hashash, 18; Mas'oud Ahmed al-Hashash, 20; Sa'id Ahmed al-Hashash, 20; their mother Hana' Ali al-Hashash, 43; and Mohammed Mousa al-Hashash, 20.
Here are the Hamas "mujahid martyr" posters for four of these family members:
Here's the funny part: Hamas admitted that these were member of the Al Qassam Brigades on the day they were killed. It was all over pro-jihadi forums that very same day.
There is no way that PCHR didn't know that this was a family of Hamas terrorists, but that didn't stop them from calling them all "civilian."
So when you see statistics of how 75% of those killed in Gaza are civilians - here is what a lot of those "civilians" look like.
