Senior Hamas Terrorist Disguises Himself as Journalist

Hamas terrorist Muhammed Shamalah disguised himself as a journalist in a car marked TV.

Shamalah’s car was targeted today in a strike in southern Gaza.
Muhammed Shamalah didn’t make it.
The IDF Blog reported:

When terrorists disguised themselves as civilians, it can only end badly for civilians. Today, a senior Hamas operative was targeted while driving a press vehicle, effectively disguising himself as a reporter. By doing so, he risked the lives of all journalists in the Gaza Strip.

Over the past several days, the IDF has carefully pinpointed and targeted sites used by terror groups in the Gaza Strip, most notably the Hamas and the Islamic Jihad. Terrorists complicate the task by systematically using civilian facilities and locations as a cover for their operations.

The “human shield” method, as it is commonly known, has forced the IDF to target seemingly non-military targets, resulting in some of the civilian casualties. It has also endangered all residents of the Gaza Strip who, without their consent, were unwittingly dragged into the conflict.

One such example came in today, when a senior Hamas operative was targeted while driving a press vehicle. Muhammed Shamalah, commander of Hamas forces in the southern Strip and head of the Hamas militant training programs, was targeted by an Israeli air strike while driving a car clearly labelled “TV”, indicating it to be a press vehicle, abusing the protection afforded to journalists.

The incident occurred on the same day that four senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad operatives took over a floor of the foreign press building in Gaza and used it as a meeting place, risking the lives of all journalists inside.

    Impeach Obama President of the United States of America
    8,702 Letters and Emails Sent So Far
    Impeach Obama President of the United States of America

    According to the Constitution of the United States of America, Article 2, Section 1, “No Person except a “Natural Born Citizen”, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the signing of this Constitution, shall be eligible to hold the Office of President.”

    Whereas, The Second Session of the First Continental Congress, back in March of 1790, defined “Natural Born Citizen” to mean a child born of two parents who must both be American Citizens”;and

    Whereas, The wording of the definition of “Natural Born Citizen” as established by our First Continental Congress in 1790 states:

    “And the children of “citizens” of the United States, that may be born beyond sea, or out of the limits of the United States shall be considered as natural born citizens; Provided, that the
    right of citizenship shall not descend to persons whose fathers have never been resident in the United States.”

    Whereas, Our Constitution is the supreme law of the land and the written will and authority of We the People; and

    Whereas, We the People contend that Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, has failed to meet the requirement necessary to hold the office of President of the United States of America; and

    Whereas, Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, failed to disclose his Indonesian citizenship and hid the fact that he had previously renounced his U.S. citizenship; and

    Whereas, The law requires that such persons who want to regain their U.S. citizenship, upon reaching the age of 18, must go before the appropriate US State Department and apply for re-instatement of citizenship, and swear allegiance to the United States of America; and

    Whereas, Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro failed to confirm his allegiance to the United States of America upon his 18th birthday as prescribed by law; and

    Whereas, Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro was still using his Indonesian citizenship to gain entry into Pakistan in 1981; and

    Whereas, Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, did not disclose his Indonesian citizenship, and has failed to affirm his allegiance to the United States of America and has withheld that from the American public; and

    Whereas, The House and Senate has failed to act on this matter and abide by and honor the Constitution of the United States of America and failed to honor their pledge to defend our Constitution; and

    Therefore, We the People demand that the House Judiciary Committee take immediate action to remove the usurper, Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, from unlawfully and unconstitutionally holding the office of President of the United States of America.

    Be it further resolved that, the House Judiciary Committee start an immediate investigation into Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro to determine his true citizenship, and this investigation be followed by removing said usurper Mr. Barack H. Obama, AKA Barry Soetoro, from the Office of President of the United States of America.

    Special Report: Muslims in Israel shout, “Obama is our friend”


    A message from Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel

    In the days following Barack Obama’s reelection, radical Muslims have fired over 300 rockets from Gaza into Israel, dramatically escalating the violence in the Middle East.

    Is it just a coincidence that radical Islamists now feel inspired to renew their attacks on Israel just after the U.S. presidential election took place?

    As a friend of mine in Israel recently walked through the Arab Muslim quarter of Jerusalem, she heard Muslims shouting in the streets, “Obama is our friend!” That’s no coincidence.

    ++Israelis are deeply concerned about the U.S. leadership.

    The day after President Obama’s reelection, Rabbi Abraham Cooper wrote to Fox News that Israelis were “worried.” He went on to say:

    …if the president decides to secure his foreign policy legacy in the Middle East, Israelis will need to see real progress in removing Iran’s existential threat and in America’s leadership in blunting the virulent anti-Semitism of the Muslim Brotherhood, before considering further risk-taking with a shaky Palestinian partner.

    In a related event, The Jerusalem Post reported that Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas effectively snubbed the President of the United States in the request to withdraw a request for Palestinian Statehood to the U.N. Abbas has become emboldened to take an even stronger anti-Israel position by Obama’s reelection, as has the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Further, the Associated Press reported that Iran’s Vice President made a strongly belligerent post-election statement:

    Tehran will break the “grasping hands” of newly re-elected President Barack Obama.

    Just confirms journalist = terrorist. Nothing new here.

  • Jsmith

    Just glad he’s dead, disguised or not. Now go kill some more of them.

  • Musketball

    The question is, why bother ‘disguising’ himself as a journalist? The words ‘terrorist’ and ‘journalist’ are nearly interchangeable at this point.

  • jb books

    I love happy endings.

    You guys aren’t being entirely fair to Journalists – I have recently run across one online, Amber Lyon (amberlyonlive [dot] com) who is a investigative journalist of the old school. She believes in finding and telling the TRUTH, and is NOT just another propagandist (like those who have taken over Western “Mainstream” media).

    She and her ENTIRE division were fired from CNN when she revealed that CNN was broadcasting political advertorials without warning viewers that they were paid advertisements.

    Of course (unlike this Hamas terrorist) SHE wouldn’t be in a vehicle marked “TV” – to get her stories, she has gone on foot into crowds countless times and been shot at and pepper-sprayed.

    From now on the press AND the jihadists will paint a new i.d. on their vehicles: “TV…REALLY!! PINKY-SWEAR!!

    The photo didn’t show the rest of their I.D. on muhammed’s trunk, which said, “death to jews and their babies!” oops.

    Since the IDF hasn’t announced the deaths of any jihadist successors to leadership, we must assume the conversation among those next in line goes something like: “Your turn!…No, your turn!…Don’t look at me. I don’t like virgins. …Let’s make Ahmad do it. Nobody likes him, anyway. …Hey, Hussein should be the one. I’ve had my eye on his herd of goats for a while. There are a couple of real cuties in there.”

    Accepting leadership for the jihadists is like suicide without the vest…..easier and they don’t have to pay for the explosives or have to travel.

    The New York Times, reuters, BBC etc are far more dangerous than this terrorist was

  • May you be informed:

    Based on the Biblical Revelations of Maestro Erano Evangelista of
    In our present generation, for us to know that this is the time of trouble, where will it start?

    ‘See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all who live on the earth, declares the LORD Almighty.’
    Jeremiah 25:29 (NIV).

    God said he will start to bring disaster on “the city that bears my Name” – What is this city that bears His Name?

    18 Give ear, our God, and hear; open your eyes and see the desolation of the city that bears your Name. We do not make requests of you because we are righteous, but because of your great mercy. 19 Lord, listen! Lord, forgive! Lord, hear and act! For your sake, my God, do not delay, because your
    city and your people bear your Name.”.
    Daniel 9:18-19 (NIV).

    And in 2 Chronicles 7:12-14 (NIV).

    12 the Lord appeared to him at night and said:
    “I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices.
    13 “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, 14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

    If the city and the people of God are called Israel, and the city and the People of Israel bear and are called by the Name of God, (Dan.9:18-19 & 2 Chr.7:12-14), what is the Name of God?

    The Name of God is ISRAEL! Our God is LORD GOD ISRAEL!

    Let us read again Jer.25:29.

    ‘See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all who live on the earth, declares the LORD Almighty.’
    Jeremiah 25:29 (NIV).

    God will start to bring disaster on the city that bears His Name which means God will bring disaster on the land of Israel and “all who live on the earth” (Jer.25:29)- together with all the people of the world, no one will be spared from the judgment of God.

    If God would punish the people of Israel who are even called By His Name, how much more those who are not?

    Why would God bring such punishment on the city or people that bears His Name and a sword to all who live upon the earth?

    Psalm 79:6
    New International Version (NIV).
    6 Pour out your wrath on the nations.
    that do not acknowledge you,
    on the kingdoms.
    that do not call on your name; –It is because we do not call on His true name!
    Let us now read again Jeremiah 25: 30 to 31.

    “Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them: ” ‘The LORD will roar from on high; he will thunder from his holy dwelling and roar mightily against his land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on the earth. The tumult will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges against the nations; he will bring judgment on all mankind and put the wicked to the sword,’ ” declares the LORD.
    Jeremiah 25:30-31 (NIV).

    When the people are bad, they will be punished with wars and killings.

    This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Look! Disaster is spreading.
    from nation to nation; a mighty storm is rising from the ends of the earth.”
    Jeremiah 25:32 (NIV).

    We have experienced the violent storms, even the change in climate around the world, which has not been experienced before. We hear and see these things as they are happening through the news on Cable or Satellite TV broadcasts.

    If not natural calamities, they will be subject to other disasters, famine and plagues.

    At that time those slain by the LORD will be everywhere – from one.
    end of the earth to the other. They will not be mourned or gathered up or buried, but will be like refuse lying on the ground.
    Jeremiah 25:33 (NIV).

    With the great number of the dead, they will be left unburied. We should avoid this; the leaders should talk it over to acknowledge, repent, and return to God.

    If we will not —

    Weep and wail, you shepherds; roll in the dust,
    you leaders of the flock. For your time to be slaughtered.
    has come; you will fall and be shattered like fine pottery.
    Jeremiah 25:34 (NIV).

    Even the religions will bear God’s wrath. The leaders of the religions will be questioned by the people because of the great deception that they have done to all the people of the world by making them (people) call on the false names they made up for the one true and living God! This was their deception:

    Will the leaders of the religions escape the wrath of God?

    The shepherds will have nowhere to flee, the leaders of the flock no place to escape. Hear the cry of the shepherds, the wailing of the leaders of the flock, for the LORD is destroying their pasture.
    Jeremiah 25:35-36 (NIV).

    Their destruction will be complete.

    The peaceful meadows will be laid waste because of the fierce anger of the LORD.
    Jeremiah 25:37 (NIV).

    All the people, whether they are good or bad, do not call on the true Name of God! Thus, all are cursed.

    Like a lion he will leave his lair, and their land will become desolate because of the sword of the oppressor and because of the LORD’s fierce anger.
    Jeremiah 25:38 (NIV).

    After all of this, the religions will be exposed that they have deceived humanity. This is the cause of the curse from God. It is also the reason why we had wars. Maestro asks: How important it is to know the Name of God?

    I will show wonders in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke. The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
    Joel 2:30-31 (NIV).

    How can we be saved?

    And everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved;.
    for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance,
    as the LORD has said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls.
    Joel 2:32 (NIV).

    It is very clear, he who calls on the Name of God will be saved.

    The people who will call on the Great Name of God. How will they be considered by God?

    This third I will put into the fire;.
    I will refine them like silver.
    and test them like gold.
    They will call on my name.
    and I will answer them;.
    I will say, ‘They are my people,’.
    and they will say, ‘The Lord is our God. ’”
    Zechariah 13:9 New International Version (NIV).

    The people who will call on the Name of God will be called the People of God. It is no longer the people who are called by the Name.

    This is what the Sovereign LORD showed me: a basket of ripe fruit.
    “What do you see, Amos?” he asked. “A basket of ripe fruit,” I answered. Then the LORD said to me, “The time is ripe for my people Israel; I will spare them no longer.
    Amos 8:1-2 (NIV).

    “I will spare them no longer” – Indeed, God is no longer with them!

    Regarding the disasters and wars in our generation, who has the right to ask salvation from God?

    The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name will trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.
    Psalm 9:9-10 (NIV).

    God will not forsake those who will call on His Great Name!

    May all the people of the world especially the Jewish People know more of God’s True name in the Bible and Why He gave it first to Jacob and His message for our time in

    Disastrous events will continue to happen all over the world, for the people to realize that the world is cursed. These will only stop when they accept and acknowledge the true Name of God, whom we should call LORD GOD ISRAEL.

    Thank you.

    Interestingly, Reuters just reported that a journalist/cameraman was killed in Gaza. Could it be that they were referring to this militant?

  • dunce

    These so called reporters are as neutral about hamas as msnbc is about democrats. You might say that they are the public relations wing of hamas. I believe many actively collect information not for reporting, but for planning terror attacks.
