Hamas trying to scare Israelis,
boosting morale among Palestinians

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

 
"Your army jeeps, your vehicles, your planes, your battle ships, are potential targets for our Qassam [rockets]."
As part of its psychological warfare and its efforts to scare Israelis, Hamas is using TV and other media to threaten Israelis with
a number of different messages
. On the website of its military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas posted several pictures
with short texts designed to scare Israelis. Pictures showing armed Hamas fighters, scenes of combat and wounded Israeli
soldiers warn Israelis that "your army jeeps, your vehicles, your planes, your battle ships, are potential targets for our Qassam [rockets]," and that "the Qassam rockets will chase you everywhere."

"your leadership started this battle, but it won't be able to put an end to our rocket attacks."
Other pictures showing Israeli leaders warn Israelis that "Netanyahu doesn't care about your security or about the lives of your children. He only cares about winning the upcoming elections," and that "your
leadership started this battle, but it won't be able to put an end to our rocket attacks."

A third group of pictures promise death to Israeli soldiers if they enter Gaza: "We warn you - don't send your sons (i.e., soldiers) to Gaza because you won't see them again."
Or "Enter Gaza and we will crush your arrogance," and "To arms! The
"To arms! The response is ready and my weapon is impatient."
response is ready and my weapon is impatient."

Two pictures appear with quotes from the Quran which recall Allah's victory over an enemy army by the way of birds striking the enemy with stones: "Our resistance - 'flocks
of birds striking them with stones of Sijjil'
(Quran, Sura 105:3-4)" and "oh soldiers of [Allah] the Merciful, of 'flocks of birds striking with stones of Sijjil' (Quran, Sura 105:3-4)
and crushing the tyranny of the villains."
