The Left and its media footmen want the story of Israel versus Palestine to be compelling. They want it so badly that they invent a two-sided narrative for what is nakedly evident in human history as a one-sided issue. Clearly, Hamas has no right to exist.
The same people who come up with “Nice Things to Say About Attila the Hun” also ask “What can Israel and Hamas gain?” and “What Hamas hopes to gain from the crisis in Gaza”. In both cases, they ignore one key point. Attila the Hun was a conquerer, bent on achieving his own enrichment through intimidation, barbarism, and extortion. Hamas is an organization bent on achieving its own ends through war and conquest by eliminating its enemies.
Attila the Hun called himself flagellum Dei, the scourge of God. Hamas uses as its slogan: “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.” There is no wiggle room in Hamas for dissenting opinion.
Any organization built around hatred, war, conquest, and destruction of another people has no right to exist. Here are five reasons why Hamas should be destroyed, and if not destroyed, it will have its way with the West like Attlila had with Rome.
1. Hamas is specifically and intentionally opposed to peace with Israel. Excerpted from Article Thirteen of the Hamas charter:
[Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith, the movement educates its members to adhere to its principles and to raise the banner of Allah over their homeland as they fight their Jihad: “Allah is the all-powerful, but most people are not aware.” … Since when did the Unbelievers do justice to the Believers? “And the Jews will not be pleased with thee, nor will the Christians, till thou follow their creed. Say: Lo! the guidance of Allah [himself] is the Guidance. And if you should follow their desires after the knowledge which has come unto thee, then you would have from Allah no protecting friend nor helper.” Sura 2 (the Cow), verse 120 There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad. The initiatives, proposals and International Conferences are but a waste of time, an exercise in futility. [emphasis mine]
2. Hamas is dedicated to conquest of the land of Israel, and Israel’s ultimate destruction. Article Eleven:
…Palestine is an Islamic Waqf throughout all generations and to the Day of Resurrection. This is the status [of the land] in Islamic Shari’a, and it is similar to all lands conquered by Islam by force, and made thereby Waqf lands upon their conquest, for all generations of Muslims until the Day of Resurrection. This [norm] has prevailed since the commanders of the Muslim armies completed the conquest of Syria and Iraq, and they asked the Caliph of Muslims, ‘Umar Ibn al-Khattab, for his view of the conquered land, whether it should be partitioned between the troops or left in the possession of its population, or otherwise. [emphasis mine]
3. Hamas is dedicated to the promotion of hatred from generation to generation. Article Fifteen:
We must spread the spirit of Jihad among the [Islamic] Umma, clash with the enemies and join the ranks of the Jihad fighters. The ‘ulama as well as educators and teachers, publicity and media men as well as the masses of the educated, and especially the youth and the elders of the Islamic Movements, must participate in this raising of consciousness. [emphasis mine]
4. Hamas believes in a vast, worldwide Zionist conspiracy. Article Twenty-Two:
The enemies have been scheming for a long time, and they have consolidated their schemes, in order to achieve what they have achieved… They [also] used the money to establish clandestine organizations which are spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies and carry out Zionist interests. Such organizations are: the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, B’nai B’rith and the like. All of them are destructive spying organizations… They also stood behind World War II, where they collected immense benefits from trading with war materials and prepared for the establishment of their state. They inspired the establishment of the United Nations and the Security Council to replace the League of Nations, in order to rule the world by their intermediary. There was no war that broke out anywhere without their fingerprints on it: “…As often as they light a fire for war, Allah extinguishes it. Their efforts are for corruption in the land and Allah loves not corrupters.” [emphasis mine]
5. Hamas has as its aim a theocracy in which Islam is the law, and other religions must submit. Article Thirty-One:
Safety and security can only prevail under the shadow of Islam, and recent and ancient history is the best witness to that effect. The members of other religions must desist from struggling against Islam over sovereignty in this region.
There is no negotiation with Hamas. There is no peace, there is no politics. Israel must root out and destroy Hamas, and we, as a civilized people, must join them in that cause.
