Hypocrisy? Hamas seems unable to carry through with a simple boycott on Israeli drinks.
A week after the Hamas Palestinian terrorist group endorsed the boycott campaign against Israel, its officials convened for a meeting where Israeli-made refreshments were served.
A picture of their meeting was tweeted by Israel’s coordinator of government activities in the territories (COGAT) with the caption, “A week after endorsing BDS, Hamas officials were photographed drinking Israeli products at a recent meeting. Stay thirsty Hamas.”
COGAT, which oversees the implementation of civil and humanitarian policies in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, also tweeted that there were five ambulance crossings between Gaza and Israel on Monday, while nearly 4,000 travel permits were issued for residents of Gaza and 19,902 tons of goods entered Gaza in 646 trucks.
Like Hamas, leaders of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel have stated that their goal is the elimination of the Jewish state.
BDS co-founder Omar Barghouti said in 2014 that Palestinians have a right to “resistance by any means, including armed resistance,” while leading activist As’ad Abu Khalil wrote in 2012 that, “Justice and freedom for the Palestinians are incompatible with the existence of the State of Israel.”
