The monster behind Oct. 7 attacks

This is him.

His name is Yahya Sinwar, and he’s Hamas leader who precipitated the Gaza war.

He’s to blame for the kidnappings, killings, and hostage-takings by Hamas terrorists on October 7, 2023, and the 36,600 Palestinian lives lost to the Israeli military attacks he deliberately provoked.

Sinwar believes in the first rule of war, which is “know your enemy.” CNN says he “speaks fluent Hebrew and has a nuanced knowledge of Israeli politics.”

He has reason to hate his enemy: He spent 22 years in Israeli prisons. Now Israel wants to kill him, but first they’ll have to find his hideout in Gaza’s network of underground tunnels.

The world would be better off with Sinwar dead, but also if Netanyahu fell from power. Western nations, fed up with his belligerence and intransigence, are backing away from supporting Israel unconditionally. Meanwhile Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians fuels anti-Israel protests in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Sinwar is winning because “the enormous bloodshed he precipitated has allowed him to tap into global moral outrage.” The ongoing bloodshed strengthens, not weakens, his hand because the more Palestinians suffer the more compelling his grievance narrative becomes.

Netanyahu “has played right into it,” making himself an accused war criminal in the process. Which Sinwar already was, and with far less to lose. Read story here.
