Problem: Meet Solution… More Air Strikes!!!
Ah, the ignorance of the masses. I love it when a group of people that are directly associated with a cruel mastermind of killing profess to the lack of knowledge of the person’s “hidden” agenda. This one comes to us via The Scotsman :
BY DAY, Awad al-Qiq was a respected teacher and headmaster at a United Nations school in the Gaza Strip. By night, he built rockets for Islamic Jihad.
The Israeli air strike that killed the 33-year-old last week also laid bare his apparent double life and embarrassed a UN agency that has long had to reject Israeli accusations that it has aided and abetted guerrillas fighting the Jewish state.
Students and colleagues, as well as UN officials, denied any knowledge of Qiq’s work with explosives. And his family denied he had any militant links, despite a profusion of Islamic Jihad posters at his home.
But militant leaders allied to the enclave’s ruling Hamas group have hailed him as a martyr who led Islamic Jihad’s “engineering unit” – its bomb makers. They fired improvised rockets into Israel in response to his death.
Qiq’s body was wrapped in an Islamic Jihad flag at his funeral, posters in his honour still bedeck his family home and a notice posted on the school gate declared that Qiq, “the chief leader of the engineering unit”, would now find “paradise”.
The poster was removed soon after reporters visited the Rafah Prep Boys School, run by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees. Staff there said yesterday that UNRWA officials had told them not to discuss Qiq’s activities. No-one from the UN attended the funeral or has paid their respects to the family, relatives said.
And here is where the cluelessness comes out:
Surrounded by Islamic Jihad mourning posters at the family home, Qiq’s sister Naima insisted: “He’s only a teacher and head of the school. School was his life. He had no time to work with Islamic Jihad.” Other family members nodded in agreement. At the school, a 17-year-old who gave his name as Shadi read a poster for his former teacher and said simply: “Nobody knew.”
Riiiight. I really do believe that. Who knew that a relief agency in the Palistinian occupied areas could be populated by terrorists that use the aide group as a front for their own activities? How could this be?
