Where's the Coverage? Hamas Leader's Wife Treated in Israel


Last year, the media ignored the fact that Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh’s granddaughter was treated for a serious illness in Israel. Since then, Haniyeh’s daughter was hospitalized at Tel Aviv and his mother-in-law was treated in Jerusalem.

Similarly, the press paid no attention to the fact that Mahmoud Abbas’ wife underwent surgery in Israel even as the search was ongoing for the three Israeli teens kidnapped by terrorists and later found murdered.

And now again, the mainstream media refuses to report another story of extraordinary Israeli compassion, even for the families of the Jewish state’s most vociferous enemies. The Jewish Press reports that the sister of deputy Hamas leader Moussa Abu Marzouk is receiving medical care in Israel:

Halamiya Shecata, age 60, is currently in critical condition at an Israeli hospital where she has been treated several times before for her cancer, military sources said.

For years, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) has allowed Palestinian Authority Arabs from Gaza, Judea and Samaria to enter Israel for humanitarian and medical reasons. Each week a list of those with special needs is approved after review of each individual case.

Family connections do not apply, claims the COGAT in speaking with media.

Only the Jewish, Israeli and some niche press outfits have covered this news.

Remember, Hamas is a terrorist group sworn to the destruction of Israel and Jews around the world. It engaged in armed conflict with the Jewish state only a few months ago, continues to fire missiles and mortars at Israel and has created a labyrinth of underground tunnels intended to launch terrorist attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians. Further, the group’s charter states:

• "Israel will exist, and will continue to exist, until Islam abolishes it, as it abolished that which was before it." [From the words of] The martyr, Imam Hasan al-Banna', Allah's mercy be upon him.

• …our fight with the Jews is very extensive and very grave, and it requires all the sincere efforts. It is a step that must be followed by further steps; it is a brigade that must be reinforced by brigades upon brigades from this vast Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah's victory is revealed.

• The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinct Palestinian movement that is loyal to Allah, adopts Islam as a way of life and works to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine.

• …the Islamic Resistance Movement aspires to realize the promise of Allah, no matter how long it takes. The Prophet, Allah's prayer and peace be upon him, says: "The hour of judgment shall not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, so that the Jews hide behind trees and stones, and each tree and stone will say: 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him,' except for the Gharqad tree, for it is the tree of the Jews."

• In the face of the Jewish occupation of Palestine, it is necessary to raise the banner of jihad.

• "Say to the unbelievers: You will surely be defeated and gathered in Hell. Most terrible shall be your resting-place." (Koran, 3:12)

And yet, Israel provides medical and humanitarian treatment to even the families of the terrorist leaders. What other nation does this? And… where’s the coverage?
