Hamas’s Terror Recruiters Rely on Mix of Old and New Media

Coded messages on a satellite television station and Facebook are some of the tools Hamas has been using to plot a series of terrorist atrocities against Israelis.

A recent Hamas terror attempt to launch suicide bombings, stabbings, and shooting attacks against Israelis illustrates how the organization combines new and old media to promote death and destruction.

Like hundreds of attacks Hamas plans ever year, Israeli security forces detected and prevented this one. But Hamas in Gaza remains determined to keep looking for new ways to evade Israeli intelligence. This determination led it to use the Gaza-based Al-Aqsa satellite television station and Facebook to attract new recruits in the West Bank, who then receive instructions on how to go out and kill Israelis.

The recruitment attempts are part of a wider, dangerous, strategy by Hamas’s military wing to evade Israeli detection, and send suicide bombers into Israeli cities from the West Bank. They illustrate just how deceptive the everyday quiet on Israeli streets is, and how hard Israel’s security forces must work to preserve it.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
