Former Hamas Cabinet Member Describes Former Leaders as ‘A Group of Lunatics’

In a recent interview, a former Hamas cabinet member, Yosef Almansi, revealed the declining popularity of the terrorist organization and its leader, Yahya Sinwar. Almansi, who was captured by Israeli forces, emphasized that Sinwar’s perceived lack of support among the people stems from destructive actions, attributing them to a group of “lunatics.”

According to Almansi, Sinwar displays “delusions of grandeur” and is isolated in his leadership role. Almansi conveyed the sentiment among Gazans, stating, “Nobody likes Sinwar. There are people who, day and night, pray that God will free us from him.” He criticized the group’s impact on Gaza, asserting, “They destroyed the Gaza Strip; they set it back 200 years.”

During an undated interrogation video, Almansi, sitting in an Israeli prison uniform, provided further insights into the sentiments among Gazans. “We have a saying, if a crazy person throws a stone into a well, even 1,000 wise men won’t be able to get it out,” he said. “This is a group of lunatics that Sinwar leads,” emphasizing the destructive consequences of their actions.

Almansi’s remarks align with a growing dissatisfaction in Gaza towards Hamas. The Jerusalem Post notes a weakening rule and a diminishing “barrier of fear” against the terrorist group. Gazan journalist Muhammad Mansour echoed these sentiments, expressing frustration with the leadership, particularly Sinwar.

Mansour criticized Sinwar and other leaders for hiding underground while the population suffers above ground. He pleaded for the release of Israeli hostages and denounced the diversion of aid to tunnels instead of reaching the people in need. “Sinwar, Deif, and their wicked companions hide underground. We don’t even have access to water,” Mansour stated, referring to Hamas’ military commander in Gaza, Mohammed Deif.The dire humanitarian situation, with millions of Gazans displaced and lacking essentials, further highlights the growing discontent with Hamas. An elderly woman from Khan Yunis, in an interview with Al-Jazeera, accused Hamas of diverting aid meant for the people, claiming it goes to the leaders’ homes instead. This sentiment underscores the challenges faced by the population and adds to the calls for accountability within the Hamas leadership.
