Hama’s “secret” headquarters is a bunker…underneath a hospital
Just in case you still had any doubts that Palestine is run by a bunch of barbarians, there’s this story.
The idea that one of Hamas’ main command bunkers is located beneath Shifa Hospital in Gaza City is one of the worst-kept secrets of the Gaza war. So why aren’t reporters in Gaza ferreting it out? The precise location of a large underground bunker equipped with sophisticated communications equipment and housing some part of the leadership of a major terrorist organization beneath a major hospital would seem to qualify as a world-class scoop—the kind that might merit a Pulitzer, or at least a Polk.
So why isn’t the fact that Hamas uses Shifa Hospital as a command post making headlines? In part, it’s because the location is so un-secret that Hamas regularly meets with reporters there. On July 15, for example, William Booth of the Washington Post wrote that the hospital “has become a de facto headquarters for Hamas leaders, who can be seen in the hallways and offices.” Back in 2006, PBS even aired a documentary showing how gunmen roam the halls of the hospital, intimidate the staff, and deny them access to protected locations within the building—where the camera crew was obviously prohibited from filming. Yet the confirmation that Hamas is using Gaza City’s biggest hospital as its de facto headquarters was made in the last sentence of the eighth paragraph of Booth’s story—which would appear to be the kind of rookie mistake that is known in journalistic parlance as “burying the lede.”

A group who puts their military command under a hospital is evil. Any politicians or members media who pretend like Hamas has the moral high ground or even equivalency in their dispute with Israel are enablers of evil.
Yet another rocket stash found at Gaza school
This has got to be just another coincidence, right? I mean, no one would actually store their weapons of war at a school for children, would they?
The United Nations Relief & Works Agency For Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) announced Tuesday that another rocket stockpile has been found at one of its schools in Gaza. This instance marks the third time since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge that a weapons arsenal has been found at an UNRWA school in Gaza.
UNRWA has yet to place blame on any individuals or organizations for placing the weapons stockpile within a children’s school. The UN body refused to do so on the past two previous occasions as well.
The UN body, after both previous findings, has handed the rockets it had found back into the possession of “the local police,” otherwise known as the terrorist group Hamas.
This week, UNRWA supplies and building materials had been found in Hamas’s tunnel infrastructure, which has been used to smuggle weapons and carry out attacks on the State of Israel.
The UN agency has a well-documented history of using their US taxpayer-funded facilities to promote anti-Israel and anti-Semitic propaganda. It has in the past been accused of aiding and abetting radical Islamists in Gaza and elsewhere.

So the UN agency, UNRWA, which has a long history of anti-Semitism, isn’t really taking sides on the issue. You know, I suppose it’s not the UN’s job to condemn nations who put their own people in grave danger by using them as shields. Oh, wait:
The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security…
Or maybe that storing weapons of war at a school in wartime isn’t something that the UN really frowns upon…as longs as it’s done by Islamic terrorists.
i was waiting for my snack wrap but everything changed when the fire nation attacked
this looks like something out of a freaking sims game
^Both of the above lines are true and accurate.
This is a very good miniseries. Especially loved the bit about how Germany was the ones who sent Lenin back to Imperial Russia with a couple million dollars to bankroll his revolution, ultimately taking Russia out of WW1.
Also loved hearing how theysent cables to the Mexican government offering to do the same thing for them to help them get the land we won in the Mexican American war. And it got exposed, blew up in their faces, was more responsible for our entering the war than the Lusitania, and made all Texans feel personal animosity towards Germany. Basically they were already screwed at that point, they just didn’t know it.
Oh, and then Britain and France marginalized Japan’s contributions to the war (apparently 100k troops fought with us in Europe) and ignored them completely (along with us kinda, but we didn’t take it as hard cus Woodrow Wilson) in the Versailles Treaty talks. And relations never recovered. Good job, guys.
I liked my history courses, but I’m thinking WW1 may have been woefully under covered.
ALSO: Who knows the reason behind Hitler’s stupid mustache? Me, after watching this!
ALSO pt 2: Its narrated by Hawkeye. Yeah.
I like war movies. And black and white shows. And of course…Star Wars!!! What about you?
Mafia movies, movies with tasteful amounts of violence and intrigue. The occasional romantic comedy (and when I say occasional, I mean most of them are garbage, but there are some I like, even if it’s sometimes close to being garbage as well). Oh, and some old movies.
Ever seen Leap Year? Its a pretty good one, imo. (RomCom, I mean.)
