Hamas' "majestic parade" missing an important component

Yesterday, on the first anniversary of the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap, Hamas' Al Qassam Brigades staged a parade that they labeled "majestic" in the streets of Gaza City, as scores of SUVs filled with masked terrorists with machine guns and RPGs passed by:

What is missing?

No one is watching the parade!

No throngs of families crowded on the sidewalks cheering on their favorite celebrity terrorists. No stands of officials greeting the incoming brave jihadists. Nothing.

This becomes very obvious when you watch the video:

There is one other thing  that other parades have that this one seemed to lack: the leaders of the group throwing the parade, in the open.

What happens when you stage a parade and nobody comes?

You issue press releases saying that the parade brought " joy and happiness the people of the Gaza Strip!"

(Now, if the IDF had decided to drop a few guided bombs on all these celebrating jihadists, that would be a compelling video!)
