Hamas Still Wants to Destroy Israel

Hamas Still Wants to Destroy Israel

“We cannot religiously, morally or nationally give up on one inch of the land of Palestine.”

No, Hamas does not want peace and the terrorist group has no problem admitting it still wants to destroy Israel. From The Times of Israel:

Hamas co-founder Mahmoud al-Zahar clarified Wednesday that his terror group’s new political program, which some interpreted as accepting the idea of a Palestinian state on the 1967 lines, would not preclude Hamas from seeking to liberate all of historic Palestine, including Israel.

“If we liberate Palestine though the resistance until the 1967 borders, we will go directly to liberate the rest of Palestine and the territories of 1948, and there will be no negotiations,” Zahar said at a conference in Gaza addressing international reactions to the new policy document, according to the Hamas-linked al-Resalah news site.

Zahar was likely responding to hardline critics of Hamas’s new program, such as the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group.

“As partners with our Hamas brothers in the struggle for liberation, we feel concern over the document,” Islamic Jihad’s deputy leader, Ziad al-Nakhala, said Saturday.

“We are opposed to Hamas’s acceptance of a state within the 1967 borders and we think this is a concession which damages our aims,” he said in a statement on Islamic Jihad’s website.

On Wednesday Zahar stressed that Hamas was not walking back its original principals, asserting, “If Hamas liberated 99.9% of the land of Palestine, it will not give up on the rest.”

He added: “We cannot religiously, morally or nationally give up on one inch of the land of Palestine.”

Hamas adopted this new program last week. The Times of Israel continued:

It accepts the idea of a Palestinian state in territories captured by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967 but simultaneously reiterates the imperative to destroy Israel. It also dismisses the establishment of the State of Israel as “illegal,” asserting a Palestinian claim to the entire Land of Israel, and a so-called right of return for all descendants of refugees. It also reserves the right to wage “resistance and jihad for the liberation of Palestine.”

Israel has dismissed the new document as an attempt to “fool the world.”

Note that Hamas has made it clear that this new manifesto does not replace or cancel its charter, which is explicitly and viciously antisemitic. That remains firmly in place, but it’s a mission statement, not a practical program; it’s what they believe, and what they hope to do in the long term. The new manifesto is what they plan to do now. So for right now they don’t plan to wipe out all the Jews, but they still intend to do it eventually. How nice of them.

Hamas is just more obvious than Fatah, who pays people for murdering Jews. Yet the Europeans and US are giving them the money. The 2 State solution is dead.
