Comparing The Hamas Charter With the Hamas Propaganda Piece
Let's compare some passages from today's Washington Post column by Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook with a few excerpts from the Hamas Charter:
Hamas Column: "There must come a day when we will live together, side by side once again."
Hamas Charter: "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it... the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up."
Hamas Column: "Our society has always celebrated pluralism in keeping with the history and traditions of the Holy Land. In recognizing Judeo-Christian traditions, Muslims nobly vie for and have the greatest incentive and stake in preserving the Holy Land for all three Abrahamic faiths."
Hamas Charter: "Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious... Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people... With their money, they took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others. With their money they stirred revolutions in various parts of the world with the purpose of achieving their interests and reaping the fruit therein. They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there... They were behind World War I, when they were able to destroy the Islamic Caliphate, making financial gains and controlling resources... They were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains by trading in armaments, and paved the way for the establishment of their state."
Hamas Column: "We call on [Israel] not to condemn posterity to endless bloodshed and a conflict in which dominance is illusory."
Hamas Charter: "Initiatives, and so-called peaceful solutions and international conferences, are in contradiction to the principles of the Islamic Resistance Movement... There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
