EXCLUSIVE – Palestinian Jihadist Leaders Respond to Israel’s Debate About Death Sentences for Terrorists
TEL AVIV — A bill proposed in Israel’s Knesset to allow death sentences for terrorists won’t deter the Palestinians and resistance will continue, Palestinian officials have said in conversations with Breitbart Jerusalem.
A recentsurveyconducted by the Israel Democracy Institute and Tel Aviv University showed that nearly 70 percent of the Israeli public supports death sentences for Palestinian terrorists. At the same time, Knesset member Nava Boker (Likud) presented a bill to apply the death penalty to Palestinians who have murdered more than one Israeli.
Representatives of Palestinian terrorist organizations said that the prospect of being sentenced to death won’t prevent Palestinians from carrying out attacks targeting Israelis.
Hamas official Husam Badran said, “All the laws of the Zionists are rooted in clear racism toward the Palestinians who are groaning under the yoke of the occupation and its laws. These laws, and especially this bill, show that this is an occupation that is devoid of moral codes.”
While preaching morality, Badran’s Hamas has carried out deadly suicide bombings, shootings and rocket attacks and advocates the destruction of Israel. Hamas has also been widely accused of using civilians as human shields.
According to Badran, “This bill, like other laws and bills, represents an admission from the occupation of its failure to handle the attacks carried out by young Palestinians and members of the resistance against the ongoing aggression against our people.” READ MORE
