Ever wondered why Palestinian and IDF casualty numbers differ?

Posted: June 17, 2009 by Jonathan Boyko in Cast Lead, Hamas, Terrorism


A WELL-KNOWN blog, Elder of Zion, discovered yet another case of Palestinian press and authorities presenting a terrorist killed during Israel’s operation Cast Lead as a civilian. Let me jump forward and say: If you attack Israel, shoot rockets at its kindergartens and fire on its soldiers, you are still a terrorist, even if you put your gun down for a moment. Mind you, this is not a case of a terrorist dropping his weapons and surrendering.

This is a sad tale of a journalist receiving a paycheck from HAMAS:

Aqsa TV cameraman Omar Abdel-Hafiz Silawi (28 years) was killed in Beit Lahiya city (GS) after Israeli forces shelled Dr. Ibrahim Makadmeh mosque. His colleague Ibrahim Muslim said that they were covering the Israeli bombing in that area throughout the day, in particular, Kamal Adwan field hospital and the nearby areas. Silawi was filming and transferred videos to the place where the TV was broadcasting, then he transferred his wife to the hospital to give birth, then returned to take his camera and went to the mosque, which is 100m away from the hospital, and when it was bombed, he was seriously injured. “When I saw him on a stretcher sometimes I was filming him and sometimes helping they race him to the hospital,” said his colleague. “I was crying. They tried to treat him but without results. Our comfort is that his wife gave birth safely to a son.”

Now that the sob fest is over, let’s see HAMAS’ version of the ‘martyr’:

The al-Qassam fighter/martyr Omar Sailawi was born in the Saudi Arabia on the twenty-ninth of the month of September 1981. Although he was born away from his homeland "Palestine", but he was carrying in his heart and love her passion. [He moved to Gaza later – EoZ]

Omar Sailawi joined the ranks of the Islamic Resistance Movement – Hamas – since his return to the homeland, after his commitment in a mosque in al-Bashir, has begun to receive at the hands of advocates of the movement many religious lessons and courses to become one of the sons of the Muslim Brotherhood Muslims.

The martyr Omar – may God have mercy on him – joined the ranks of the Mujahidin of al-Qassam Brigades in 2004, after selflessly giving in to the demand and urgency to the leadership of Hamas for the organization in the ranks of the mujahideen, so pleased Almighty God to join him, for after being noticed for his the honesty and sincerity.

I really hope his wife is now happy. After all, her husband is now cheating on her with 72 other women.
