The Islamic State’s branch in Egypt has escalated its long-simmering conflict with Hamas, calling on its followers to attack the Gaza-based Palestinian group in a 22-minute video that also featured the brutal execution of an alleged Hamas collaborator.
In a video released Wednesday, ISIS in Sinai Province slammed Hamas for cracking down on Islamic militants in Gaza and for pursuing better relations with with Egypt and the Palestinian Authority. ISIS considers both governments to be apostates from Islam that are too accommodating of Jews, Christians and Shia Muslim minorities.
We thought it was all over with 2017. But then, 2018: when Hamas is accused of being too friendly to people who are accused of being too friendly to the Jews (they aren’t and they aren’t).
