Hamas to Muslims: Attack US targets



GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip


Signaling a change in tactics, Hamas' military wing on Wednesday called on Muslims around the world to attack American targets after an apparent misfiring of an IDF artillery shell in the Gaza Strip.


"America is offering political, financial and logistic cover for the Zionist occupation crimes, and it is responsible for the Beit Hanoun massacre. Therefore, the people and the nation all over the globe are required to teach the American enemy tough lessons," Hamas said in a statement sent to The Associated Press.


While critical of the US, Hamas has always focused its violent campaign of suicide bombings and rocket attacks against Israeli targets. Wednesday's threat signaled that the group is identifying with global Islamic extremist movements, such as al-Qaida.


Ghazi Hamad, spokesman for the Hamas-led Palestinian government, said the group had no intention of attacking American targets.


"Our battle is against the occupation on the Palestinian land. We have no interest to transfer the battle," he said, though he said America was indirectly responsible for Wednesday's bloodshed because of its support for Israel.


"We urge the Arab nation and the governments of the Arab countries to protest the world's silence and the American bias," he said.


Hamas' political wing, led by Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, claims it is independent of the military wing. But the two entities both report to the group's secretive leadership, headquartered in Syria, and frequently coordinate with each other.


The US, like Israel, considers Hamas a terrorist group.

i'm tired of the u.s. getting blamed for what attacks israel chooses to carry out. they're a sovereign nation and they make their own decisions. yeah they may be allies but they're not puppets

It's obviously because we let the Democrats take back the House and the Senate. I mean, now the terrorists all know we are weak. /sarcasm
