41. Better tell that to Hamas and the head of their military wing
The Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades are the uniformed branch of Hamas - they are organized in a military structure, have a military academy and send members overseas for advanced military training.

Just who do you think resisted the IDF in Gaza? The Palestinian Minute men?
