Israeli attacks, Hamas’ wishes

December 29, 2008 6 comments

No nation can tolerate a neighbor that constantly barrages it with rockets with the goal set out in its charter of wiping it out. Hamas cannot complain that Israel responded to a war that Hamas itself has declared, most especially now when a truce has formally ended and Hamas did not venture to renew it.  You ask for war, and you get it. You don’t have to be a genius to understand that.

Here is Article 7 of Hamas’ Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement which quotes a passage from two primary Hadiths of Islam:

The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).

This looks like a charter for genocide, as well as hate literature.
