Last week, as many of us celebrated the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem, Hamas was busy with an agenda of their own. It isn’t a new agenda, but one they have implemented and advanced for decades now. In fact, their charter of 1988 makes their purpose clear:
The Islamic Resistance Movement, also known as the HAMAS, is an extremist fundamentalist Islamic organization operating in the territories under Israeli control. Its Covenant is a comprehensive manifesto comprised of 36 separate articles, all of which promote the basic HAMAS goal of destroying the State of Israel through Jihad (Islamic Holy War).
~The Covenant of Hamas
Hamas recruited Palestinian citizens (mostly jihadist rebels) to riot at Israel’s borders, leading up to Nakba Day, the day Palestinians remember the “catastrophe” of Israel’s rebirth. Thus, we have witnessed significant violence as Hamas ordered Palestinian people to storm the border.
The predominately liberal media has sympathized with Hamas, but is seemingly (though gradually) beginning to see a little more clearly. Even the ultra-liberal Washing Post ran an editorial by Israeli Ambassador to the US, Ron Dermer, last week. In it, Dermer exposes the lies perpetrated by Hamas.
The article is informative, and also includes a 3-minute interview with Dermer. You will find the article and video here:
In addition, Hamas leader, Yahya Sinwar just admitted that Hamas is coordinating with Hezbollah and Iran! Indeed, it is Iran working the puppet strings of both Hamas and Hezbollah, and Iran who is likely directing the riots at the border between Gaza and Israel. Click here to watch Sinwar’s admission.
Continue praying for truth to be made known, and the lies of Hamas revealed. It is important, during this time of increased respect for Israel, to grow roots of strength in standing for Israel. Ultimately, the day will come when doing so will be more difficult. May your roots grow deep in knowledge and resolve!
