As the Jewish communities of Gaza have been removed the question in the minds of many people deals with the motives and plans of the terrorist organization HAMAS which represents about 80% of the people in the Gaza Strip. They agreed to calm down the attacks on Israeli citizens during the withdrawal, but do they really want peace with Israel?
On August 17th Mahmoud al-Zahar, a senior official in Hamas in the Gaza Strip, did a broadcast on Al-Arabiyya TV and stated most emphatically that the Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip was caused by the armed resistance they gave and not as the result of any “useless negotiations.” He then demanded that the sea, land, and air sovereignty of the Gaza Strip must be handed over to them or the resistance would continue.
Musa Abu Marzuq, the deputy chief of Hamas’ political bureau, stated again that the withdrawal from the Gaza Strip was only the beginning. He boasted of the close relationship of Hamas with Egypt and that Hamas is soon to open an office in Cairo.
Radio Al-Aqsa, the radio station of Hamas, continues to broadcast hate songs that incite terrorism and violence against Israel. These broadcasts have continued to say that the “knights of Gaza” are coming and that they intend to attack all of Israel’s cities and make the Jews tremble. They continue to say that the defeat of Israel is Gaza is only the beginning. They continue to say that this is the beginning of the end and that Israel will soon no longer exist.
Actually, Islam claims that their religion is not true if Israel continues to exist. They call 1948 “The Great Disaster” and they claim that the modern State of Israel will be destroyed completely and no longer exist and Islam will prove to be the only true religion of this world!
Well, we now have a specific challenge to the God of the Bible who calls Himself “THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL” 108 times and the “GOD OF ISRAEL” OVER 200 TIMES. This great and only GOD says that the nation of Israel will NEVER cease to exist – FOREVER!
HAMAS is nothing more than a terrorist organization and no negotiations whatsoever should ever be held with them of ISLAMIC JIHAD or HEZBOLLAH!
