Hamas has taken the Egyptian court's decision last week to declare its military wing, Izzadin Kassam, as a terrorist organization, quite personally. 

On Saturday, Hamas's official media arm released a video showing just how betrayed they felt.

The movie begins with a soldier standing with an Egyptian flag waving in the background, with a narrator saying: "O Arab." The Egyptian soldier is then shot and the narrator says, "Your wound." Then a soldier appears with a Palestinian flag in the background, who is then shot as the narrator says, "My wound."
"Your wound, my wound, our wound is one," says the narrator as the two injured Arab soldiers grasp each others bleeding hands.

Then an Israeli soldier appears with the Israeli flag in the background: "your enemy, my enemy, our enemy is one," says the narrator as both Arab soldiers shoot bloody holes into the Israeli flag and Israeli soldier.

The movie ends with the Egyptian and Hamas soldiers walking over the dead body of the Israeli soldier, as the narrator says, "Why O Arab??" As in, why have you betrayed us?

The latest tensions between Hamas and Egypt erupted after a spree of terrorist attacks that killed 31 soldiers and injured more than 40 others in Sinai.

Some Egyptians have accused Hamas of involvement in the attacks – a charge that has been strongly denied by Hamas leaders in the Gaza Strip.



“The [Egyptian] decision serves the interests of Israel,”  Hamas said Thursday, referring to the court ruling that the Hamas military wing is a terrorist group. “The decision also causes harm to the Egyptian people,” they added, calling on Egyptians to reject it and support Palestinian “resistance” groups.
