‘Sadistic’ Hamas

Israel gives its official report to the UN detailing Hamas’s use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.

Israel has submitted its official report to the United Nations detailing Hamas’s use of sexual violence in its unprovoked surprise attack on October 7. The 35-page report titled “Silent Cry: Sexual Crimes in the October 7 War” was compiled by the Association of Rape Crisis Centers in Israel (ARCCI).

The report notes that the accounts of rape and sexual violence perpetrated by members of Hamas on innocent Israeli civilians and female soldiers during the attack were neither incidental nor isolated. Rather, the “brutal sexual assaults” were “carried out systematically and deliberately towards Israeli civilians.”

In other words, Hamas intentionally used sadistic sexual violence as a weapon of war to spread terror. “Many of the rapes were carried out as a group, with the participation of violent terrorists,” the report notes. “Often, the rape was perpetrated in front of an audience — partners, family, or friends — in a manner intended to increase the pain and humiliation of all present.”

The stomach-turning report details how Hamas used sexual violence in all four arenas of its attack. Those four arenas, as the Times of Israel reports, were “the Supernova music festival near Re'im; Gaza border communities; military bases infiltrated by Hamas; and abuse of hostages inside the Strip.”

The reason ARCCI sent its report to the UN is so that UN members would have “no room for denial or disregard” of the nature of war crimes that Hamas is guilty of committing. Indeed, the UN has been shockingly sluggish in acknowledging what was known mere hours after Hamas’s murderous attack — primarily due to the fact that Hamas jihadis, in many cases, streamed their atrocities online.

It’s a sad reality that Hamas’s unjustified, brutal, and sadistic attack hasn’t received the universal condemnation it deserves. In fact, the UN has, at best, offered weak instances of objections to Hamas’s brutality, to then quickly turning a judgmental tone toward Israel for effectively responding in defense of its own citizens and sovereignty.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., Joe Biden is attempting to press Israel into accepting a temporary ceasefire — a ceasefire that Hamas leadership has rejected outright in favor of a permanent one, along with demands that Israel pull its troops out of Gaza. In other words, Hamas demands exactly what Israel will not give, and instead of pressuring Hamas, Biden is pressuring Israel.

The reason for this, as we have previously observed, has everything to do with the 2024 presidential race — specifically, the swing state of Michigan, whose metro Detroit area has the nation’s largest population of Arab Americans. This influential voting bloc is furious with Joe Biden for having sided with Israel (and therefore against the Palestinians) in the Jewish state’s war with Hamas.

In yesterday’s Michigan primary, Biden rather easily won the state, but not without more than 100,000 “uncommitted” votes, many of which were in protest against his support of Israel.

However, given the atrocities committed by Hamas, as the ARCCI report delineates, it is difficult to see how Biden, in good conscience, can do anything else. The eradication of Hamas from Gaza would benefit both Israel and the Palestinians, who have suffered for nearly two decades under that murderous jihadi regime.
