Netanyahu: Hamas Is ISIL
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Islamic State of Syria and the Levant (ISIL, or ISIS in some transliterations) and Hamas are “branches of the same tree,” because they practice the same kind of savagery. “Hamas is ISIS, ISIS is Hamas. They’re the enemies of peace. They’re the enemies of Israel. They’re the enemies of all civilized countries. And I believe they’re the enemies of the Palestinians themselves. And I’m not the only one who believes that.” Not only do they practice the same kind of terror, but ISIL is suspected of operating in Gaza. The flag of ISIL was seen at a funeral in Gaza several weeks ago, and users of ISIL web forums boast the group is operating in Gaza. Hamas denies the group’s existence in its territory. Perhaps it’s fear. Perhaps it’s lying to cover up the obvious.
