A pro-Palestinian supporter presented the strangest question to us when we told him Hamas is killing not only Israeli’s but it’s own people. He said, “That is a lie! Why would they do that?”
The naivety was almost sad.
Because Hamas is not a diplomatic UN envoy, if anyone had imagined it to be. It’s a terrorist organization founded by the Muslim Brotherhood that seeks not only to take control and occupy non-Muslim areas, but the Hamas covenant calls for perpetual Jihad (Article 33), particularly against the jews. And it rejects any peace negotiations or settlements or peace treaties (Article 13).
Hamas claims: ‘The land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf [Holy Possession] consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgment Day. No one can renounce it or any part, or abandon it or any part of it.’ (The Covenant of Hamas, Article 13).
The same covenant of Hamas promises that Muslims will fight the Jews forever, until the ‘Day of Judgement: ‘The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight Jews and kill them. Then, the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees will cry out: ‘O Moslem, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him.’ (Article 7)
This same rule of Islamic Waqf can exist in any country where a mosque is established, whether it is the United States, UK, France, Belgium, Australia, Canada, etc. The only difference is the decision of military action to actually take control of this possession.
