Via Times of Israel: #AskHamas Twitter campaign backfires on Gaza group

A Twitter hashtag campaign launched by Hamas on Friday to build support in the West seems to be backfiring with users mocking the Islamic terror group that rules Gaza.

Hamas launched #AskHamas on Friday. The campaign promised responses from the group’s leaders, or as they called it, “Truth from the mouth of the horse.”

Some Twitter users swiftly responded with mockery….

Some tweeters asked Hamas about their use of suicide bombers in buses, cafes and other civilian areas during the Palestinian Intifada.

Pictures of Palestinian children at rallies where gunmen wore suicide bomber vests and waved guns were posted.

Others tweeters chose to take things in a humorous direction….

….“When is the Gaza City gay pride parade this year?”

….Another asked: “Will you be publicly executing the person that came up with the idea to #AskHamas?”
