هاني عادل أبو حشيش
האני אדל אבו חשיש
THE B’TSELEM FALSE NARRATIVE:
(taken from the B’Tselem webpage)
Hani ‘Adel Muhammad Abu Hashish
23 years old, resident of al-Maghazi R.C, Deir al-Balah District, killed on 25 Jul 2014 in al-Maghazi R.C, Deir al-Balah District, by a missile fired from an aircraft. Participated in hostilities member of the military wing of Hamas. Additional information: Killed with eight other Hamas military branch operatives while they were on a lookout.
THE FALSE NARRATIVE
“Killed with eight other Hamas military branch operatives while they were on a lookout“
THE FACTUAL NARRATIVE:
IZZ AL-DIN AL-QASSAM BRIGADES WEBSITE
Some of the most prominent jihadi acts in which our martyr Hani participated: Active participation in Rabat with advanced ambushes east of Maghazi ….
Honor of the certificate
Our martyr al-Qasimi al-Majahi Hani Adel Abu Hashish honored the martyrdom certificate on Friday, the 27th of the holy month of Ramadan, 25/7-2014, accompanied by a number of mujahedeen following an artillery bombardment aimed at the advanced ambushes of the Maghazi refugee camp.
Hani ‘Adel Muhammad Abu Hashish WAS NOT on a “lookout“ when killed. Hany Abu Hashish was killed while positioned to ambush Israeli troops, he was in an “advanced ambush“. Being on a “lookout” means being stationed to watch for danger. Hany was in an ambush, he was not looking for danger. He was lying in wait in a concealed position ready to make a surprise attack on Israeli troops.

“KILLED … WHILE … ON A LOOKOUT” is a common trope found in the B’Tselem databases
B’TSELEM’S USE OF THE TROPE
A trope is a theme or plot element used many times, it creates recurrent images that influence an audience’s senses helping a writer achieve a desired effect. The meaning of the text is not literal, it is figurative.
B’TSELEM’S USE OF THE TROPE, “KILLED … WHILE … ON A LOOKOUT”
“KILLED WHILE THEY WERE ON A LOOKOUT” or “KILLED WHILE ACTING AS A LOOKOUT”, is a common trope used by the B’Tselem databases, it is literally not true. It is a figurative theme or plot element used many times throughout their databases. The metaphorical use of this expression achieves the following effect: It adds the element of victimization to the narrative, it implies that the Palestinian terror operative was not engaged in hostilities when he died, he was simply on a lookout when killed, just looking for danger.
The B’Tselem trope creates an image of a person who is a sentinel, keeping a vigil, surveying the landscape, looking for danger. The narrative merely contains a figurative expression to account for the death of the Palestinian combatant. The trope does what it is suppose to do, achieve a desired effect and influence the reader’s senses.
As previously stated, the B’Tselem databases create the illusion that Palestinian combatants killed by the Israeli security apparatus are victims, victims of an “occupier“. The Hany Adel Abu Hashish narrative is an example of this misinformation.
Hashish, B’Tselem alleges, was killed while on a lookout. By using this trope, B’Tselem conceals why Hashish died, what he was doing when he died, and it creates the illusion that this terror operative combatant was a victim in this incident.
The B’Tselem narrative above is patently false. Hashish WAS NOT killed while on a lookout. He was killed while he was prepared to ambush Israeli troops. He was in an “advanced ambush of the Maghazi refugee camp“. The ambush site was targeted by Israeli artillery and Hashish was killed.
The trope, killed while on a lookout, conceals how Hashish died, where he actually was when killed and what he was doing when he was targeted. The false narrative, in effect, has defined Hashish as merely a sentry, a guard, a victim.
Hany Adel Abu Hashish, the terror operative combatant, re-imagined by B’Tselem as the victim.
While the B’Tselem databases have re-imagined Palestinian terror operative combatants as victims, the U.S. Department of Justice has identified who the truthful victims were, they closed down a Hamas fundraising scheme and will redirect the Hamas assets to the factual victims, the victims of their terrorism. The event documented below occurred in August 2020:
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE SEIZURE
The original Humanize Palestine website memorialized Hamas and al-Qassam Brigades terror operatives, and B’Tselem represented them as victims, Hany Adel Abu Hashish is one example.
Now the real victims have been identified. The U.S. Department of Justice has seized al-Qassam Brigades assets, funds and websites, used to finance their terror campaigns. The monies will be directed to the United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund.
