There is a great deal of ignorance in America and the West with regard to HAMAS. Note that all of the combat in the current conflict is around Gaza. All of the rockets have been coming from Gaza.
Gaza is controlled by HAMAS.
HAMAS is NOT a Palestinian nationalist movement. They are a Jihadist movement. They were formed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as the Muslim Brotherhood wing in Israel.
Their goal is the establishment of an Islamic state ruled by Shariah law.
Their charter calls for the destruction of Israel.
HAMAS is not fighting to get some olive farms back. HAMAS is fighting as part of the global jihadist movement. They are supported by Iran and by wealthy Sauds, Qataris and other Muslims around the world.
HAMAS is not seeking a "two-state solution." HAMAS is seeking to replace Israel with an Islamic state along the lines of Taliban Afghanistan. There is NOTHING good that can come out of any state ruled by HAMAS under any circumstances. HAMAS is an enemy of the entire Western civilization.
