Remember, on April 27, 2004, in Jerusalem, Hamas used a palestinian human bomb to kill two palestinian alleged "collaborators." It was the Hamas leadership in Gaza which decided on terrorist strikes and issued operational orders for the bus bombings. It was in Gaza that the Hamas military organization trained suicide bombers and assembled explosives. It was the Hamas supporters who celebrated the deaths of Americans on September 11, 2001.
To better understand Hamas, it is instructive to consider the Charter of Hamas:
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../..../..There is no solution to the Palestinian problem except by Jihad../..../..In order to face the usurpation of Palestine by the Jews, we have no escape from raising the banner of Jihad../..../..We must imprint on the minds of generations of Muslims that the Palestinian problem is a religious one, to be dealt with on this premise../..../.."I swear by that who holds in His Hands the Soul of Muhammad! I indeed wish to go to war for the sake of Allah! I will assault and kill;, assault and kill, assault and kill.Remember, Hamas repeatedly declares that even if Israel would fully withdraw from the territories they will continue their attacks, since they refute Israel's basic right to exist.
Remember, Mahmoud Zahar said his group is "not going to change a single word" in its covenant calling for Israel's destruction.
Remember, Hamas is listed as a terrorist group by the State Department. President Bush told The Wall Street Journal in an interview Wednesday that the United States will not deal with Hamas until it renounces its position calling for the destruction of Israel. But that will never happen. If Israel had a leader worth his salt he would take this opportunity to take back all of the lands Israel gave up and initiate a preemptive strike, because Hamas is going to attack Israel anyway. If the palestinian people endorsed and voted for Hamas knowing full well that Hamas' goal is to destroy Israel, then TAKE THE LAND BACK NOW.
There is no reason for the palestinian barbarians to get lands that were promised in peace.
ISRAEL, TAKE THE LAND BACK NOW.
