Examining the Unsettling Realities: The Cruelty of Hamas
In yesterday’s sobering article, “When People Tell You Who They Are, Believe Them,” former New York Times reporter Bari Weiss, delves into the chilling realities of the current conflict involving Hamas. Weiss’ journalistic lens focuses on the disturbing openness of Hamas in broadcasting their barbaric acts, the harrowing individual experiences of victims, and a perplexing global reaction that ranges from silent indifference to overt support.
Weiss’ insightful remark on the conflict serves as an eye-opener for Americans unfamiliar with the true nature of the Far Left’s Decolonization Movement:
“This is what ‘decolonization’ really looks like. Look carefully at who is cheering it on.”

Hamas’ Unprecedented Openness
In her article, Weiss contrasts the secrecy of Nazi war crimes during World War II with Hamas’ blatant broadcasting of their violent acts. Unlike the Nazis, who hid their extermination camps, Hamas openly documents and shares their brutality on social media, terrorizing not just individual victims but entire communities and nations.
The Threat of Public Executions
Adding to the terror is Hamas’ audacious threat to execute hostages on live television, as well as reports of beheading infants and children. This grotesque display has forced parents to take unprecedented protective measures, like deleting social media apps to shield their children from the horrific content. The situation marks a new, disturbing frontier in terrorism that shatters previously held boundaries of human decency.

The Far Left’s Reaction: From Silence to Support
Amid the shocking acts of violence, the Far Left’s response has varied from silence and indifference to outright support. Public gatherings celebrating the brutality have taken place in cities worldwide, from the Sydney Opera House to the streets of Berlin, London, Toronto, and New York. Even in the political sphere, silence prevails. For example, Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, who prominently hangs a Palestinian flag outside her office, has refrained from commenting on the atrocities inflicted upon Israelis. Such reactions or lack thereof raise serious questions about the Left’s moral direction.

One of the most bewildering aspects is the resounding silence emanating from prestigious academic institutions. These universities have often been quick to comment on global events, whether it be the killing of George Floyd or the war in Ukraine. Their tepid response to the present crisis and how their own students show support for Hamas raises questions about the values they purport to uphold.

The Futile Escalation
While some might argue that Hamas’ actions aim to liberate Palestine, the reality couldn’t be further from the truth. Instead, these acts are instigating a cycle of violence, likely to lead to further loss of life on both sides of the conflict. It is a lose-lose situation for Palestine.
As violence is openly displayed and even celebrated, and as institutions that should stand for reason and justice remain silent, one must question where we are heading as a global society.
