A new Hamas “How To” video is going viral in Palestinian social media circles. It isn’t how to rebuild buildings. Or how to make peace with Israel. It’s how to stab Jews. How do it properly and inflict maximum damage on the victim and increase the likelihood of killing him or her.
The Jewish Press reports:
The “resisters of occupation in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem” are spreading on Arab social media a frightening video demonstrating tactics on how to stab a Jew to death quickly and efficiently.
The 1-minute and 13-second video, as seen below, shows the “teacher” calmly walking up to a “victim,” stabbing him, and walking away.
One of the tactics appears to imitate the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) method of beheading.
The guide to killing Jews teaches that after stabbing the victim, the knife should be twisted to maximize wounds and cause death.
The story was originally reported yesterday on the Hebrew NRG website, which observed that a number terror organizations, especially Hamas, have published videos glorifying terror. Over the summer there was a “How to dress up as a Jew to carry out suicide bombings” video. In a similar vein, more recently there were was a social media campaign encouraging an “automobile intifada,” glorifying a popular method of terror a few weeks ago.
On Friday two Israeli soldiers were stabbed in the Old City of Jerusalem. It is unclear if the attacker was in any way inspired by the video.
It’s an important reminder of the role that incitement plays in terror against Israel. It comes at a time that the blame-Israel-first crowd, exemplified by Peter Beinart last week, claim that there’s no such thing as incitement, just justified anger at Israel.
