Israel and the World
Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement)
Hamas is a militant anti-peace process organization bent on Israel's total destruction and the establishment of a Palestinian State in Israels place.
There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiative, proposals and International Conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility. The Palestinian people are too noble to have their future, their right and their destiny submitted to a vain game...
"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine has been an Islamic Waqf throughout the generations and until the Day of Resurrection, no one can renounce it or part of it, or abandon it or part of it . Hamas regards Nationalism (Wataniyya) as part and parcel of the religious faith. Nothing is loftier or deeper in Nationalism than waging Jihad against the enemy and confronting him when he set foot on the land of the Muslims. And this becomes an individual duty binding on every Muslim man and woman; a woman must go out and fight the enemy even without her husband's authorization, and a slave without his master's permission....
Hamas has been responsible for the majority of terrorist attacks that have occurred since the signing of the Declaration of Principles on September 13, 1993. It has tens of thousands of supporters in the West Bank and Gaza and receives its primary funding from Iran.
