Will ‘The Squad’ and their friends among the Democrats have anything to say about this?
Will this issue come up in the Women’s March? Or is it just Anti-Trump, all the time?
The guy who led Hamas from 1996 until 2017 was invited to speak at an event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in December of 2019. He has an ‘interesting’ view of women’s role in society.
Let’s hear it in his own words:
Hamas leader says women's role in society is to commit suicide bombings against Jews
"Women Are Martyrdom-Seekers, They Help Martyrdom-Seekers, and they Replace Martyred, Imprisoned, Or Exiled Men"
What does the @womensmarch think about this?

According to the Memri translation:
The role of Palestinian women has become more important under the occupation. Palestinian women constitute 50% of the population, like in every other society, but they have two additional significant roles.
The first role is struggling and resisting. The women are martyrdom-seekers, they help prepare martyrdom-seekers, and they play their role in the resistance.
The second role they play is the role of (missing) men. They play the role of father, brother, and son. They fill the place of men who have become martyrs, or who have been imprisoned or exiled.
In this same short clip, he seamlessly pivots into talking about their rejection of the ‘Middle East Quartet’.
Notice how the Yahoo reporting of this same speech somehow fails to report on his views of the ‘role of women’.
They focused entirely on politics and identity.
Former Hamas chief Khaled Mashal today lambasted some Muslim countries that only helped other country’s facing crisis just to insert their own influence over it.
Going through the Palestinian experience, Khaled, who led Hamas from 1996 to 2017 however did not name the Muslim countries but said not receiving aid helped Palestinians resolve their issue on their own to preserve their “identity, religion and culture”.
“Many countries have offered aid to help Palestinians and to develop our country. But the aid does not come free. It comes with conditions.
“We don’t need those conditional aids. We are ready to fight alone to ensure our identity, religion and culture will not be lost from the face of the earth,” he told a roundtable discussion through an interpreter at the Kuala Lumpur Summit (KL Summit) 2019 here today.
Suicide bombings and a campaign of murdering civilians were somehow left out of their reporting.
Quotes like this one might help explain the somber reaction from Hamas when Soleimani was successfully deleted from the planet.
As soon as the assassination of Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani was confirmed by the Pentagon, the Palestinian Islamic Resistance Movement was among those mourning him and blaming the US for causing chaos in the region through its violations against the “resistance axis” in the Middle East, as well as its “blind support” for the occupation state of Israel.
“We mourn the death of Soleimani and the other Iranian commanders killed in an air raid by the US,” said the movement. “On this sad occasion, Hamas condemns the US bullying that creates disputes and upheavals in the regions, just to serve the interests of the Israeli occupation.”
This triggered a wave of criticism on social media in the Arab world, especially in Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Hamas was accused of siding with the Iranian regime, which was described as being “responsible for bloodshed in Iraq and Syria, as well as instability in Lebanon.”
If the political leaders that self-described Palestinians have chosen for themselves openly praise and promote jihad and ‘martyrdom’, even among their women, will the Democrat darlings know collectively as ‘the squad’ formally denounce them?
Or will the Democrats recorded on camera giggling with pleasure at the mere mention of ‘Hamas’ and Al Quaeda, and who have a strong desire to push BDS against Israel get a pass… again?
Clips like this one lend a lot of credibility to the Jewish claim that goes something like this:
If Palestinians laid down their arms, the region would have peace tomorrow.
If Jews laid down their arms, Israel would cease to exist tomorrow.
