The video, since being shared, has received several views. It has also accumulated tons of comments from people.

What did people say the cake?

“It’s outrageous to make a birthday cake like this for a little kid. Are they glorifying a terrorist organisation?” wrote a YouTube user.

“These are the kind of fanatics the world is supporting. Justifying giving a Hamas-themed cake to a freaking kid on his birthday by calling it a freedom of expression. Get some therapy, man. You all are sick,” added another.

“When you go so woke, you lose your senses into making things like these,” joined a third.

“Why, just why,” questioned a fourth.

Hamas, which controls Gaza, is currently at war with Israel. The name of the group stands for Islamic Resistance Movement, reported the BBC. It wants to reject “Israel's right to exist” and form an Islamic state in its place. Hamas gunmen, on October 7 last year, stormed across Gaza's border into Israel, killing hundreds of people.

Under Australia’s criminal code, Hamas is listed as a “terrorist organisation”.
