Palestinians Express Strong Support for October 7 Massacre, Hamas

A latest ballot exhibits important Palestinian support for the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas and its October 7 bloodbath — the deadliest towards Jewish individuals for the reason that Nazi Holocaust, which noticed the torture, rape, execution, and abduction of lots of of Israeli civilians — whereas practically three-quarters favor the elimination of Israel, with the creation of a Palestinian state “from the river to the sea” in its stead.

A latest poll by Birzeit University’s Arab World for Research and Development (AWRAD) exhibits robust Palestinian support for Hamas and the October 7 assault towards Israel.

In the West Bank, 83.1% of Palestinian respondents supported the assault, whereas in Gaza, the determine was 63.6%. 

In the West Bank, simply 6.9% opposed the assault, whereas 8.4% have been impartial; and in Gaza solely 20.9% opposed the assault, whereas 14.4% have been impartial.

Overall, 75% of Palestinian respondents agreed with the assault, whereas 74.7% favored a single Palestinian state “from the river to the sea” instead of Israel.

Minimal variations have been famous between Palestinian males (75.2%) and ladies (74.9%) of their support for the October 7 assault.

Respondents confirmed robust support for the army wings of varied terrorist teams: Palestinian Islamic Jihad (84%), al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (80%), and al-Qassam Brigades (89%), with Hamas general receiving 76%.

The Tuesday ballot surveyed 668 Palestinians within the West Bank and Gaza Strip “during the fourth week” of the continued Israel-Hamas warfare “through tablet-assisted, face-to-face interviews,” based on AWRAD’s press launch, which famous that “the poll’s sample includes all socioeconomic groups, ensuring equal representation of adult men and women, and is proportionately distributed across the West Bank and Gaza.”

The survey finally revealed that Palestinian society exhibits higher unity on this difficulty than the worldwide neighborhood. 

Last month, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) asserted, “Anyone who claims to support the people of Gaza but not Hamas should remember that Gazans elected Hamas.”

“At some point, some will have to reconcile themselves to the fact that while many Palestinian civilians did not take part in the massacre, many almost certainly cheered it,” wrote Erielle Davidson, senior coverage analyst with JINSA. “The savagery and rot that pervades the Hamas terrorist is not exclusive to the terrorists themselves. Same animating hatred.”

World-renowned army historian and professor Dr. Victor Davis Hanson argued that the “picture of eager civilian involvement was apparently confirmed by videos that emerged from the Gazan street, as the Israeli captives and dead were spit upon, struck, and reviled by civilian mobs — at least in the heady days after news of the easy killing of Jews in Israeli but before the IDF aerial response.”

“No doubt public opposition to Hamas is impossible for Gazans; but the idea that a vast majority of civilians became sickened by Hamas and ashamed of their subhuman killing is so far not demonstrable,” he added.

Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate Ron DeSantis proclaimed, “If you look at how [Palestinian civilians] behave — not all of them are Hamas, but… none of them believe in Israel’s right to exist.”

Conservative pundit Brigitte Gabriel shared what she termed the “sad truth” that the Palestinians in Gaza “mostly support what Hamas is doing,” and even those that disagree with Hamas “hate the Jews so badly — they are collectively antisemites.”

Hamas’ bloodbath acquired broad support from Palestinian factions throughout the board, with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad participating in it, the “moderate” Fatah expressing support, and the official Palestinian Authority (PA) pledging to pay practically $3 million to the households of slain Hamas terrorists who executed the bloodbath.

Palestinian politician Major General Issam Abu Bakr, who served as governor of the Palestinian metropolis of Tulkarem, expressed his perception in unanimous support for the assault, saying “I do not think there is a single Palestinian who does not support what happened.” 

An extra ballot from March carried out by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research within the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, found that the overwhelming majority of Palestinians — practically seventy % — expressed support for the creation of armed terrorist teams to assault the Jewish state.

A earlier ballot carried out by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) revealed {that a} whopping 93 % of Palestinians maintain antisemitic beliefs.

While the depth of support for Hamas among the many hundreds of thousands of Palestinians within the West Bank and Gaza is tough to precisely measure although polls, quite a few movies depict a supportive response of the Palestinian road to information of the bloodbath.

As Breitbart News (*7*), instantly after phrase of the assaults bought out, Palestinians at house and overseas have been seen celebrating jubilantly.

Photos and movies uploaded to social media present Palestinian crowds greeting the returning executioners as heroes and burning seized Israeli automobiles within the streets of Gaza.

Others present Palestinians rallying, handing out sweets, and firing weapons within the air.

Ordinary Palestinian civilians weren’t simply seen celebrating the bloodbath, however actively taking part in it, with full mobs captured on movie pouring throughout the breached border to participate within the killing and raping of innocents, and the looting of their property.

According to IDF spokesman Jonathan Conricus, important numbers of Palestinians unaffiliated with terror teams entered Israel and took part within the atrocities alongside the terrorists.

In addition, Gadi Yarkoni, the mayor of the Eshkol Regional Council, advised the Free Beacon that the “second wave of Arabs who came into the country were just as cruel as the terrorists of the first wave.” 

“We saw that it was not only Hamas who came to slaughter us,” he added. “It was all the residents of Gaza, including people who worked in our kibbutzim.”

However, in latest days, increasingly Palestinians look like popping out towards Hamas. 

In one clip, an aged Palestinian fleeing his house lashes out at “Arab traitors,” whereas insisting “the Jews are kind with us.”

Another exhibits a person telling an Al-Jazeera reporter that Hamas can “go to hell and hide there instead.” 

In one other clip, one Gaza resident is seen publicly chanting towards Hamas within the midst of a public official’s press convention.

One girl in Gaza, mourning a cherished one’s loss of life, was seen brazenly blaming the “dogs of Hamas,” earlier than being swiftly silenced.

The matter follows Hamas’ multi-pronged assault final month that noticed some 3,000 terrorists burst into Israel by land, sea, and air and gun down individuals at an outside music competition whereas others went door to door looking for Jewish males, ladies, and youngsters in native cities who have been then topic to torture, rape, execution, immolation, and kidnapping.

The bloodbath, which drew parallels to scenes from the Nazi Holocaust, resulted in additional than 1,200 lifeless contained in the Jewish state, over 5,300 extra wounded, and at the very least 241 hostages of all ages taken.

The overwhelming majority of the victims are civilians and embrace dozens of American residents.
