Hamas and Other Terror Groups Call for ‘Terror’ During Month of Ramadan

Leaders of several major Islamic terrorist organizations have called for Muslims around the world to engage in “terror” during Ramadan, the month that is holiest to Islam, amidst renewed conflict throughout the Middle East.

As Breitbart reports, one such call came from Abu Hamza, the spokesman for the Al-Quds Brigades of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), who publicly demanded a “month of terror” in an effort to “unify” various Islamic groups against their common enemy in the state of Israel. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh similarly called for an escalation of violence in the month of Ramadan, which begins on March 10th.

The Biden Administration, however, is downplaying these threats and instead pandering to Muslims by celebrating the month of Ramadan. White House national security spokesman John Kirby mentioned during a press briefing that “we’re mindful of the sensitivities around the month of Ramadan and the spiritual importance of that to the Muslim world.”

Kirby then went on to say that the Biden Administration wants “to see this temporary ceasefire in place as soon as possible,” adding that “if we can get the agreement for several weeks, it would take you through Ramadan anyway.”

Meanwhile, Israeli war cabinet member and former alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz has said that the start of Ramadan is the deadline for any deal to release the remaining Israeli hostages being held by Hamas forces. If Hamas does not agree to a ceasefire by then, Gantz warned, then Israel will retaliate by invading the town of Rafah in southern Gaza.

Despite Joe Biden initially supporting Israel in the war, he has since shifted his stance in favor of criticizing Israel and calling for a ceasefire, which has been the rallying cry for the far-left and Muslim activists who oppose Israel. Biden’s handling of the war in Israel has led to political backlash from the progressive base, which most recently staged a successful protest vote against Biden in the Michigan presidential primary, where 13% of the electorate – just over 100,000 voters – voted for the “Uncommitted” option on the ballot instead of Biden.
