The Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas, which was responsible for the brutal attack against Israel on October 7 of last year, mourned the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.  The United States had a much too similar response to Hamas, sending “condolences.” Despite Iran’s human rights abuses and Raisi being nicknamed “The Butcher of Tehran” State Department spokesperson Matthew Miller said in a statement:

“The United States expresses its official condolences for the death of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian, and other members of their delegation in a helicopter crash in northwest Iran.”

Just The News reported that Miller defended the State Department’s message during a press conference Monday, stating that the U.S. offered condolences upon the deaths of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, both of whom the U.S. had major disagreements with.

“It is a step that the United States takes, recognizing that people have families, and in no way, in no way at all undermining our fundamental view of the Iranian regime and its crimes against its own people and our support for the Iranian people,” Miller said

Hamas thanked the murderous leader for its support of the Palestinian people during the current war with Israel. “These leaders supported the legitimate struggle of our people against the Zionist entity, provided valued support to the Palestinian resistance, and made tireless efforts in solidarity and support in all forums and fields for our people in the steadfast Gaza Strip during the Battle of Al-Aqsa Flood,” referring to the war with Israel which began on Oct 7.

Abdallah Aljamal, who wrote for Al Jazeera and worked as a spokesman for Gaza’s Hamas-run labor ministry, was killed when Israel Defense Forces troops entered his central Gaza home over the weekend and rescued hostages Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andri Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, according to Israeli officials.

Al Jazeera said Sunday that Aljamal “has never worked with the Network, but had contributed to an Op-ed in 2019,” although his profile on Al Jazeera’s website describes him a “Gaza-based reporter and photojournalist.”

The network also said allegations against Aljamal are “completely unfounded” and are “a continuation of the process of slander and misinformation aimed at harming Al Jazeera’s reputation, professionalism, and independence.”

Just The News reports this is not the first time the network has come under pressure from Israel. The Israeli government unanimously voted last month to close Al Jazeera’s offices in Israel due to security concerns.

Despite the network’s denial of a relationship with Aljamal, it is horrifically hostile towards Israel and Jews. As recent as Tuesday, the network’s English-language article featuring “Live Updates” from the Israel-Gaza war had the headline, “UN chief calls for ceasefire agreement,” with the first sentence stating: “Calling the conditions in Gaza ‘deplorable’, UN chief Antonio Guterres tells Israel and Hamas to come to an agreement on a ceasefire proposal outlined late last month by the US.”

At the same time, the Arabic-language live-updates article used the headline, “New losses for the occupation and the Palestinian factions respond to the ceasefire proposal,” with the first sentence of the article stating, as translated: “On the 249th day of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the occupation army continued to bomb multiple areas of the Gaza Strip, while the Ministry of Health confirmed that the occupation committed 3 massacres that claimed the lives of 40 martyrs and 120 wounded in the past 24 hours.”

The term “occupation,” is used to refer to the Israel Defense Forces, while the “Israeli aggression” refers to Israel’s war against Hamas in response to the Oct. 7, 2023, terrorist attack that killed about 1,200 people and resulted in the kidnapping of about 250 others, many of whom still remain captive. Additionally, the term “martyrs” refers to any Palestinian – civilian or combatant – killed during fighting against Israel or Jews in general.
