Hamas isn’t trying to let the liberals in America make excuses for their behavior. They don’t want Americans to sympathize with them, or their cause. They know full well what they do, and they do it with pride, and without reservation for their actions. Senior Hamas political official Ghazi Hamad recently participated in an interview. Translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) he makes no bones about their goals in Israel; genocide.
As translated by MEMRI he said, “We must teach Israel a lesson, and we will do this again and again. The Al-Aqsa Flood is just the first time, and there will be a second, a third, a fourth because we have the determination, the resolve, and the capabilities to fight. Will we have to pay a price? Yes, and we are ready to pay it. We are called a nation of martyrs, and we are proud to sacrifice martyrs.”
Continuing, he proclaimed, “The existence of Israel is illogical. The existence of Israel is what causes all that pain, blood, and tears. It is Israel, not us. We are the victims of the occupation. Period. Therefore, nobody should blame us for the things we do. On October 7, October 10, October 1,000,000 – everything we do is justified.”
He claimed that Hamas does not want to harm the innocent, but claimed “complications” caused such violence, like the 260 dead at a music festival. Not to mention the ¾ of their 1,440 victims on October 7th who were also innocents. Yet their message of victory at all costs is being echoed across the universe. Here in the US pro-Palestine groups are advocating for the destruction of Israel at all costs. They attempted to justify this by claiming settlers in Israel were fleeing from their advance when in actuality the Jewish people were returning to fight in Israel.
Fighters for Hamas know what they are doing. By restricting the fuel to hospitals and other places, they can claim the Israelis are the ones choking them out. By being the ministers of information for the Palestinian government, they are controlling the narrative of the government. Despite this not being a government versus government conflict, they are still ensuring a nation is representing its interests.
The brainwashing of the liberals to beg for sympathy for the Muslims, and to denounce the Jews is horrific. The goal of genocide was the main factor behind WWII and Hitler. We stopped that just over 80 years ago, and now it is rearing its ugly head again. This time with the Muslims as the face of this hatred, and yet the left is so soft they want us to feel bad for them and their actions.
Let’s face the facts that Hamas won’t own up to. The people of Israel have been trying to live on their own. The people of Gaza on the other hand have been increasingly unhappy with the decisions of their predecessors. Somehow, they convinced themselves they could have more land and a better deal, so they increased their infighting with the Israelis. On October 7th, they raised it to a fever pitch, and now want victory, and nothing else. Unfortunately for them, the US and other nations stand by to defend the people of Israel.
As hard as it is for many to stomach, left undefended by the US and limited others, Israel would quickly fall. The conflict between Islamic and Hasidic Jewish scholars is never-ending. Their division based upon God versus Allah is long-lasting, with both claiming holy lands in nearly the same place. Battles based on religious beliefs are wars that cannot be contested. They have a deep-seated reason for happening, so battling them is a futile idea. It does not end until someone is gone. Given the way Israel is surrounded by followers and scholarly Muslims, this is a battle that will rage until one side is wiped out.
Decades of distrust and double-crossing have made a ceasefire unlikely at this point. Especially when Hamas has already vowed to genocide the Jewish people; something someone else already tried and failed at.
