Hamas’ torture, rape, kidnapping, and murder of 1,200 Israelis, most of them civilians, is “a dream come true,” says Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal.

Senior Hamas official Khaled Mashaal made a special speech to celebrate Hamas’ horrific atrocities. He sent “Allah’s blessings” to all the Hamas leaders involved in the planning of the Hamas pogrom, specifically mentioning Muhammad Deif and Yahya Al-Sinwar and “to everyone who prepared, organized, arranged, and made this dream come true… They brought about this glory.”

In addition, he sent “Allah’s blessings” to the “heroes” who committed the atrocities.

As of this writing, Hamas’ “dream come true” includes 1,200 murders of Israelis, at least 3,100 injured, 150 kidnapped men, women and children, rape, and mutilation of dead bodies.

Senior Hamas official Khaled Mashaal: “Allah’s blessing to the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (i.e., Hamas’ military) who are adorned with victory, to their [Hamas’ elite] Nukhba forces, and to all their heroes. Allah’s blessing to the [Islamic Jihad’s] Al-Quds Brigades and to all their heroes… Allah’s blessing to you, my brother [Hamas leader, Muhammad] Deif … Allah’s blessing to you who lit the spark of the Al-Aqsa Flood (i.e., the slaughter in Israeli cities)… Allah’s blessing to you, my brother [Hamas leader] Yahya Al-Sinwar… Allah’s blessing to everyone who prepared, organized, arranged, and made this dream come true on the land… They brought about this glory.”

Hamas war on Israel October 2023 - At least 1,200 Israelis, including over 1,000 civilians, were murdered and over 4,800 wounded, in addition to approximately 244 who were abducted into the Gaza Strip (including 110 later released or liberated and at least 26 later killed), in a Hamas terror war that began when approximately 3,000 Hamas terrorists broke through Israel's security fence at the Gaza Strip border and launched a surprise attack, taking control of several Israeli towns and attacking a music festival on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which fell on the Sabbath, Oct. 7, 2023. During the massacre the terrorists tortured, raped, shot, beheaded, and burned their victims alive, murdering entire families and leaving at least 21 children without parents. Hamas terrorists also fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israeli population centers. In response, Israel launched Operation Iron Swords to counter the Hamas terror threat. Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon joined Hamas' terror war starting from the following day, attacking Israel from the north. Occasional rocket launches and shootings continued from Lebanon throughout the war. A ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal began on Nov. 24, 2023, in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners, pause drone surveillance in the Gaza Strip, and allow movement between the northern and southern Gaza Strip, in return for 50 Israeli female and child hostages held by Hamas. The deal was subsequently extended with additional releases, until Hamas violated the agreement and resumed attacking on Dec. 1, 2023.
