The Hamas Charter

Just because you’re paranoid –

it doesn’t mean that no one is out to get you!

A flag, with the Shahadah, frequently used by ...

The Hamas flag

Hamas apologists – of which here are many –  claim that the Hamas charter, originally adopted as the effective constitution of  the organisation in 1988, is no longer relevant and can be ignored.

Khaled Meshaal,  Hamas Political Bureau Head,  is on record as claiming that to attempt to revise it would cause too many internal problems.

And this claim is conveniently accepted by Palestinian supporters because, to do otherwise, is too embarrassing.

Because of the superficial nature of media reporting today, I doubt that many of those who accept that it can be ignored have even read it!

Which is good news for Hamas, because to read it is a really frightening experience.

The operational strategy is encapsulated in their slogan:

Article Eight: The Slogan of the Hamas

Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur’an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief.

English: Khaled Meshaal in a meeting with span...

Realising that the extreme nature of the charter would be political suicide if fully understood,   the easy way out is to pretend that what it states,  in spine chilling detail,  is no longer the Hamas objective.

To pretend to believe this claim is extremely dangerous for Israel.

And yet those that  warn that it can only be ignored at Israel’s peril open themselves up to the accusation of paranoia.

Lets us look at a further example of this “paranoia ” with this direct quote:

Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take.

The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: 

The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them);

until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry:

O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!

This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim).

And to take this at it’s face value is being paranoid?

  2. Yep you know so much about the constitution of a foreign country that you’ve got from pro Israel websites, translated by Israel lovers. Yep we should all listen to you, you hatefilled, racist bigot

    • Actually , i was not aware that Gaza was a country yet. Do you have some information which you would care to share?

      Now, regarding being hate filled and bigoted, I would have to go a long way to get anywhere near the hatred encapsulated in the Hamas Charter.

      And the translation is taken from a Palestinian website.

      Do you still have a problem?
