Hamas Becomes ISIS As They Behead Captives And Threaten Online Executions

Hamas has crossed lines that can never be uncrossed, and they have nobody to blame but themselves for what is about to happen. Throughout human history, it has always been acceptable for soldiers to attack other soldiers. But when they launched their surprise attack against Israel, Hamas showed no restraint whatsoever.
Even though they knew that the whole world would be watching, they mercilessly killed and abused women, children and the elderly. And now footage has been released of them beheading captives. From this point forward, Hamas will be considered the moral equivalent of ISIS, and that is because they have behaved just like ISIS did.
Now in true ISIS fashion they are threatening to execute more hostages and show the footage online.
Hamas' armed wing said on Monday evening it would begin executing an Israeli civilian captive for each new Israeli bombing of civilian houses without pre-warning.
Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said late on Monday that atrocities committed by Hamas during its attack on Israel mirrored those carried out by the jihadist group Islamic State.
'The atrocities committed by Hamas have not been seen since ISIS atrocities. Bound children executed along with their families. Young men and women shot in the back, executed. Other horrors I won't describe here,' Netanyahu said.
'We have always known who Hamas is. Now the entire world knows. Hamas is ISIS. And we will defeat it just like the enlightened world defeated ISIS. This vile enemy wanted war and it will get war,' he said.
There is a code of honor that all combatants are supposed to abide by everywhere in the world.
When a battle is raging, women and children are supposed to be left out of it.
But Hamas had no interest in following such rules. In fact, it is being reported that Israeli women were "raped next to the dead bodies of their friends"...
A survivor of the rave massacre - in which over 260 young revellers at a party near the Gaza Strip were gunned down by Hamas terrorists - has said that women were "raped next to the dead bodies of their friends".
Speaking to US website Tablet, the survivor said that several of the rape victims appeared to have been executed later, while others were taken to Gaza.
Another survivor returned to the scene later in the day to look for his friends spoke, of seeing cold and mutilated bodies, mainly of young women. He said he saw scantily clad corpses, many of whom appeared to have been shot at point-blank.
Over the past few days, countless videos of the atrocities that they committed have been shared all over social media.
Did they not understand how the rest of the world would respond to their behavior?
Maybe they are scoring points with their radical Muslim friends, but everyone else is absolutely sickened by what they have seen.
And to make matters worse, Hamas has decided to actually start beheading soldiers that they captured...
In a statement, Mossad said: "Hamas has released footage of them beheading captured soldiers. We will not share it, but the world needs to know their depravity exceeds that of ISIS. And we have been telling you all for years. May the precious souls of our men and women be in our hearts forever."
When I first read that, I was hoping that it wasn't true.
But it is.
The beheadings have been confirmed and the videos are all over social media.
At this point, the IDF is literally bombing the living daylights out of Gaza.
But there is no going back now.
The Israelis are absolutely livid, and they have decided to impose a very strict siege on Gaza for the foreseeable future...
Now, Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant said authorities will cut electricity to the Gaza Strip and block the entry of food and fuel, declaring his troops are 'fighting barbaric [terrorists] and will respond accordingly'.
The measures will essentially enact siege-like conditions that will see the millions of Palestinians living in the tiny, fenced-in region begin to starve as they are attacked from the skies.
Of course this is just in preparation for the ground invasion that is coming.
So many people are going to die in the days ahead.
It would be hard to overstate the anger that we are witnessing in Israel right now.
The Israeli population is absolutely furious, and that fury is being reflected in the public statements of their leaders.
For example, here is how Israeli President Isaac Herzog has responded to the Hamas attack...
Israeli President Isaac Herzog condemned the horrifying reality of the Hamas terror attack, writing on X, "Not since the Holocaust have so many Jews been killed on one day.
"And not since the Holocaust have we witnessed scenes of Jewish women and children, grandparents, even Holocaust survivors being herded into trucks and taken into captivity. Hamas has imported, adopted and replicated the savagery of ISIS. Entering civilian homes on a holy day and murdering in cold blood whole families, young and old, violating and burning bodies, beating and torturing their innocent victims."
And Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is pledging that what the Israeli military is about to do "will echo for generations"...
He said: "We have not seen such atrocities from ISIS. Children were executed and entire families were exterminated by Arab Terrorists.
"There were atrocities that I will not describe here. Hamas is ISIS and we will destroy it as the world defeated ISIS.
"At the end of the war, all our enemies will know it was a terrible mistake to attack Israel.
"What we will do to our enemy over the next few days will echo for generations. Any place from which Hamas operates will turn into rubble."
Needless to say, it isn't just the Israelis that are seething with anger.
Here in the United States, there are many that want to see Hamas get absolutely destroyed. In his most recent article, Victor Davis Hanson expressed what he is feeling at this moment...
Apparently, the Palestinians in their now ISIS role also thought their descent into even greater barbarity, rarely witnessed in even the most savage parts of the world, would shock Israelis into assuming some sort of collective fetal position, with hands over their ears screaming, "make all these demons just go away."
If so, Hamas sorely miscalculated.
The sheer horror of their methods, and the cowardice shown by focusing on teen-aged girls and children rather than the IDF, will have the exact opposite effect, both in Israel and worldwide.
Israel now knows there is no living with a precivilizational Hamas. It must destroy it, permanently block off Gaza from itself, and adopt a strategy of chronic disproportionate response from now on out.
In such a change of strategy, Israel will have the backing of most of the civilized world and its own people, since there is no other choice once Hamas has adopted its campaign of death. We will likely see things in the next month that no one has anticipated, and yet the Israeli response will be in the eyes of most of the world long overdue.
Of course what Hamas has done has also emboldened radical Muslims that are living in major cities all over the western world.
There have been lots of very large pro-Hamas rallies, and the rhetoric that is being spewed at some of them is absolutely frightening. The following is what one Muslim speaker had to say to a crowd that had assembled in New York City...
In New York City, a Muslim man made a threat to all non-believers.
"We're done being tortured and hurt and judged. This is the correct religion. This is the religion that all of humanity needs to be -- Islam."
"We will not stop until it enters every home. So I want you to repeat after me. I want to hear it in every single district. It should tremble Brooklyn should hear it. The Bronx should hear it. Queens should hear it. Say it -- There is no God worthy of worship except Allah. The God of Jesus, the God of Moses, the God of Abraham, and the God of the last and final prophet, Muhammed..."
Thanks to the very foolish policies of our leaders, there are vast numbers of radical Muslims now living in our communities.
And if this conflict between Hamas and Israel does evolve into the great Middle East war that many of us have been anticipating, there will be violence in cities all over the planet.
October 7th, 2023 was a day when everything changed.
From this point forward our world will be a much different place, and we will soon see death and destruction on a scale that most people can't even imagine right now.
