A Look At Hamas :: Ideological Context
Formation + Charter of the "Islamic Resistance Movement"
HAMAS :: Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamah al-ʾIslāmiyyah :: Harakat means movement Muquawamah means resistance Islamiyyah means Islamic :: In Arabic the word hamas means zeal :: in Hebrew the word hamas means a lust for violence
Already, even just based on the interpretation of the name Hamas, you can see the profound values clash that plays out in the Arab versus Jew conflict, which really has become the Muslim versus Civilisation conflict at this point. Look, reader, I will put it bluntly for you, presumably that’s why you read me — for my clever bluntness. G-d is a Zionist, we are all Jews if we wish to keep this planet from becoming a nuclear wasteland.
IDEOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS :: Muslim Brotherhood1 :: pan-Islamism + anti-European + anti-Christian :: anti-Jewish, extreme political perseveration on the site of the Temple Mount aka “al aqsa”, fixed on the delusion that it belongs to Arabs + Islam :: rejection of two-state solution for the Palestinians :: rejection of the Palestinian Authority and its leadership :: pro-Caliphate Islamic State :: severe punishment for anyone who collaborates with or escapes to Israel :: endorse + promote the use of terror to effect change ::
POLITICAL LEADERSHIP POSITION :: claim to reject western colonialism and promote self governance :: have run Gaza completely free from Israeli interference since 2005 when Israel pulled out of Gaza :: run a regime rife with brutality + corruption :: in practise, embrace the decadence + corruption + industrial criminal enterprises + money laundering + arms dealing infrastructure :: claim to reject western colonialism and yet demonstrate an inability to self govern :: in practise reject any responsibility for own people, diverting vital resources to terror activities whilst the people suffer poverty and low standard of living, still make demands of Israel to safeguard civilians and provide water2 and jobs and yet at the same time plan murderous campaigns of terror + genocide and reward homicidal behaviour and essentially teach their children to become mentally ill trauma-addled hate afflicted narcissistic psychopaths who could become Manchurian Candidates for the Supreme Ayatollah of Iran one day.
SUMMARY OF SOCIO-POLITICAL CONTEXT :: The Arab-Israeli conflict predates the State of Israel. Since the days of Ottoman rule of the middle east region, Arab and Muslim hatred of Jews has existed. Contrary to the popular narrative, Muslims and Jews did not live in peaceful co-existence. Jews, Christians and other religious minorities had a designation called Dhimmi and had to pay a Dhimmi tax to the state. Dhimmi designates any non Muslim citizen to create a kind of apartheid society which separated out non Muslims. Muslim dominant societies do not welcome and tolerate non Muslims terribly well. Religious minorities lived in tense coexistence with Muslims, and as the Young Turks rose to power ethnic cleansing became more common, unapologetically so. The Armenian genocide, for example.
After the Balfour Declaration al-Husayni and other like minded Arab leaders began a campaign to promote Palestine as the homeland of Arabs and created a narrative around al-Aqsa mosque being endangered by Zionist forces. The al-Aqsa flood of persecution propaganda kept the Muslim world focused on the cause of Palestinian nationalists. Arabs instigated pogroms and some became cult followers of Hitler. Mein Kampf remains a popular bestseller in the Islamic world. The British ignored the threat of terror and repeatedly applied leniency, letting the Grand Mufti3 get away with literal murder as well as terrorism and genocide. Arabs rejected (and continue to do) every opportunity for peace and nationhood development for the Palestinian people, favouring a pan-Islamic regime for the entire middle east.
Hamas wants a pan-Islamic State. That means an end to nation states and national borders and national governments. Hamas wants the entire Middle East to become like the Iranian Regime. Hamas wants to exterminate Jews. Whilst the PLO has now come to see the benefits to negotiating the normalisation of Israel, Hamas wants to wage terror and war until Israel no longer exists and then it will destroy Europe and North America. Remember that hatred happens when your brain’s anger and outrage and upset centre, the amygdala, begins to run your entire life. When the amygdala drives the bus known as your life, it shuts off the problem solving and critical thinking centres in your brain. Hatred makes human beings stupid. Imagine what an amygdala fuelled by synthetic methamphetamine4 does to a human mind + psyche, then.
HISTORY :: How did Hamas form in the political context of Fatah, the PLO and the existing Palestinian resistance movement established by Arafat and Nasser? In short, Jew hatred and a harkening for medieval (i.e. Wahhabist-style) Islamic fundamentalism drove the cultivation of Hamas from a Muslim Brotherhood charity operating in Gaza into a global terror threat that committed the biggest genocide of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust.
Triggered by the Israeli victory in the 1967 Six Day War, Arab leadership continued consolidation of their opposition to the growing success of the Jewish state by concocting Palestinian resistance movements. In 1973 Ahmed Yassin founded the social-religious charity al-Mujama al-Islamiya, as a Muslim Brotherhood satellite organisation. The organisation focussed on social issues and programming and charity work. The Israeli government even granted al-Mujama a charity status and allowed the organisation to spread, building mosques and schools. Through this infrastructure indoctrination spread and hatred of Jews + Europeans + North Americans grew at alarming pace. In 1984 the Israelis caught Yassin for collecting arms.
Upon his release, Yassin solicited Yahya Sinwar5, the present-day chief of Hamas in Gaza, to create armed wings to manage internal security and handle any Palestinian informants for the Israelis in the Mujama organisation. Reports of human rights violations have surfaced. In 1997 well known Palestinian journalist Daoud Kuttab received internal attention for revealing the mistreatment of Palestinians by the Palestinian internal security and police. Arafat had a complicated and tenuous relationship with Yassin and his Hamas organisation. Through social evolution and leadership changes, Mujama took on a more political flavour. Eventually what began as a social enterprise to spread “Islamic values” became a political advocacy group for Arab leadership who followed in al-Husayni’s and Rashida’s and al-Banna’s footsteps.
I think we can agree that the Palestinian leadership has had a violent lust for repression of its own people. I think we can state that this violent brutal repression exists apart from anything any Israeli government policy ever did. I think we can respect Arabs enough to grant then agency over their own internal self control mechanisms and leadership character. I think the evil Zionist coloniser excuse has run its course and Arabs should have enough self respect to put that sh1t down and build their societies. Hamas reflects the culture and values from which it emerged. Hamas hates Jews, Europeans, North Americans, Christians, Hindus, LGBT people, Freemasons, Zionists. Hamas considers North America Zionist by the way. Zionist has become a meaningless catch all word for Islamic thinkers, who do not learn critical thinking. Currently Islamic mainstream thought teaches that critical thinking violates g-d’s law6. Muslims seek advice on what to think about EVERYTHING, even brushing their teeth and swallowing toothpaste during a fast.
FORMATION :: The idea for Mujama to morph into Hamas came in December of 1987, just a few days after an Arab extremists stabbed Jewish salesman named Shlomo Takal, aged 45, in the neck from behind, killing him almost instantly. Takal sold plastics and lived in Bat Yam, Tel Aviv and frequently travelled to Gaza on business, he was discussing business with a shopkeeper at the time of his murder. A roadside bomb damaged a Knesset member’s car in Judea/Samaria (West Bank) around that time. Tensions remained high and the Israelis a curfew imposed on the ground and did house to house searches. A few days prior the Israeli police arrested a Jewish man living in Neve Dekalim because he shot and killed an Arab girl who was part of a group of teenaged girls stoning his car. Tensions rose to a new height when four Palestinians died as a result of an Israeli man driving his vehicle into a Gaza checkpoint. This incident triggered the first intifada, which killed over 2000 Israelis and Palestinians.
Scholars and terrorism experts have theories on the degree of Israeli State + IDF culpability in the formation and growth of Hamas and that warrants a separate investigative piece. Suffice it to say that the lesson which the Judeo-Christian world seems unable to learn7 involves the danger of Islamism. Even the seemingly pacifist Islamist movements pose a danger to Judeo-Christian countries, intentionally so because the ultimate aim of Islamist involves destruction of Christian and Jewish human societies and world domination of Islam and implementation of Shariah. We have enough evidence to declare this as the case across the board when it comes to Islam and its followers.8
"I believe that by continuing to turn away our eyes, our lenient approach to Mujama will in the future harm us. I therefore suggest focusing our efforts on finding ways to break up this monster before this reality jumps in our face," Mr. Cohen wrote.
Mr. Harari, the military intelligence officer, says this and other warnings were ignored. But, he says, the reason for this was neglect, not a desire to fortify the Islamists: "Israel never financed Hamas. Israel never armed Hamas."
Roni Shaked, a former officer of Shin Bet, Israel's internal security service, and author of a book on Hamas, says Sheikh Yassin and his followers had a long-term perspective whose dangers were not understood at the time. "They worked slowly, slowly, step by step according to the Muslim Brotherhood plan." (Higgins, WSJ 2009)
Al-Mujama became Hamas out of survival, in the context of the political rivalry of the Palestinian factions. Many nationalists viewed the PLO compromise for peace as a sell-out and welcomed an alternative to the status quo that would promote “Islamic values” and support armed resistance to take back Palestine from the Zionist colonisers or something like that. Despite calls for concern, Israel largely ignored Hamas operating under the radar and largely staying out of the intifada violence.
CHARTER :: In 1988 Hamas published it’s charter. For 35 years Hamas has made no secret of it’s purpose and mission and objective aim. For 35 years Hamas has made it known that it intends to eradicate Jews, Christians, and the western world, and anyone who gets in the way of Islamic world domination. If you think that’s some Ben Shapiro hyperbole, go and read the 1988 Hamas Charter for yourself. As I sit here today and read this Charter, I can see no excuse at all for the state of affairs in which the world sees itself regarding Hamas and the threat it poses today to everyone on the planet who is not a raging Arabist Jew-hating psychopath. Let’s take a look at the 1988 Hamas Charter, shall we?
Article 3 advocates for ethnic cleansing, “in all that, they fear Allah and raise the banner of Jihad in the face of the oppressors, so that they would rid the land and the people of their uncleanliness, vileness and evils.” Article 8 states that “Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes.”
Article 11 states the following,
The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that 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. Neither a single Arab country nor all Arab countries, neither any king or president, nor all the kings and presidents, neither any organization nor all of them, be they Palestinian or Arab, possess the right to do that. Palestine is an Islamic Waqf land consecrated for Moslem generations until Judgement Day. This being so, who could claim to have the right to represent Moslem generations till Judgement Day?
This is the law governing the land of Palestine in the Islamic Sharia (law) and the same goes for any land the Moslems have conquered by force, because during the times of (Islamic) conquests, the Moslems consecrated these lands to Moslem generations till the Day of Judgement.
It happened like this: When the leaders of the Islamic armies conquered Syria and Iraq, they sent to the Caliph of the Moslems, Umar bin-el-Khatab, asking for his advice concerning the conquered land - whether they should divide it among the soldiers, or leave it for its owners, or what? After consultations and discussions between the Caliph of the Moslems, Omar bin-el-Khatab and companions of the Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, it was decided that the land should be left with its owners who could benefit by its fruit. As for the real ownership of the land and the land itself, it should be consecrated for Moslem generations till Judgement Day. Those who are on the land, are there only to benefit from its fruit. This Waqf remains as long as earth and heaven remain. Any procedure in contradiction to Islamic Sharia, where Palestine is concerned, is null and void.
"Verily, this is a certain truth. Wherefore praise the name of thy Lord, the great Allah." (The Inevitable - verse 95). (Hamas Charter, Article 11)
Article 12 declares nationalism evil and the enemy of Islam. Article 17 takes on a decidedly conspiratorial + anti-semitic tone, mentioning the infiltration of Zionists through “organizations under various names and shapes, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, espionage groups and others, which are all nothing more than cells of subversion and saboteurs. These organizations have ample resources that enable them to play their role in societies for the purpose of achieving the Zionist targets and to deepen the concepts that would serve the enemy … operate in the absence of Islam ...” For those unaware of the vast and ridiculous history of anti Jewish conspiracy theories, one abiding conspiracy theory about Jewish people involves how they have infiltrated society to try to run the world, how they finance and fund everything bad to sabotage human societies, how they defile and corrupt whatever they touch etc etc. Much of Islamic and Islamist literature reads like shades of some warped Protocols of the Elders of Zion redux.
Article 20 discusses social responsibility and discusses the social responsibility of a Muslim society, not like those Nazi Jews, yes it uses those words together. Article 22 mentions Lion’s Clubs as part of the Evil Zionist plot to destroy Muslims. That worries me, my elderly parents lived in a Lion’s Manor senior residence before their death — are seniors targets of terrorists too? Apparently tyrannical religious leaders seeking world domination view as a threat the NGO that helped draft the UN Charter, despite all the good works it does for disabled people and disease eradication. In what reads like a rabidly paranoid and psychotic rambling, Article 22 says the following about the Jews aka Zionists,
they were behind World War I, when they were able to destroy the Islamic Caliphate, making financial gains and controlling resources. They obtained the Balfour Declaration, formed the League of Nations through which they could rule the world. 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. It was they who instigated the replacement of the League of Nations with the United Nations and the Security Council to enable them to rule the world through them. There is no war going on anywhere, without having their finger in it.
However, Hamas insists they do not slander any group. No they do not speak ill of any group unless they deserve it because they are evil, y’know, like the Joos, as stated in Article 24, “the Islamic Resistance Movement does not allow slandering or speaking ill of individuals or groups, for the believer does not indulge in such malpractices. It is necessary to differentiate between this behaviour and the stands taken by certain individuals and groups. Whenever those stands are erroneous, the Islamic Resistance Movement preserves the right to expound the error and to warn against it. It will strive to show the right path and to judge the case in question with objectivity. Wise conduct is indeed the target of the believer who follows it wherever he discerns it.” Article 27 rejects secularism in favour of an Islamist State with a Caliphate. Article 28 blames Jews for everything evil in the world, such as drugs, alcohol, secret espionage and sabotage and accuses Jews of working secretly and in sinister ways to gain world domination. Article 30 calls on all Arabs to consider information wars against Jews and the Zionist west a kind of jihad.
Article 31 declares the ultimate lie and gaslight,
The Islamic Resistance Movement is a humanistic movement. It takes care of human rights and is guided by Islamic tolerance when dealing with the followers of other religions. It does not antagonize anyone of them except if it is antagonized by it or stands in its way to hamper its moves and waste its efforts.
Under the wing of Islam, it is possible for the followers of the three religions - Islam, Christianity and Judaism - to coexist in peace and quiet with each other. Peace and quiet would not be possible except under the wing of Islam. Past and present history are the best witness to that.
It is the duty of the followers of other religions to stop disputing the sovereignty of Islam in this region, because the day these followers should take over there will be nothing but carnage, displacement and terror. Everyone of them is at variance with his fellow-religionists, not to speak about followers of other religionists. Past and present history are full of examples to prove this fact.
Article 32 declares anyone who abandons the war against the evil Zionists and imperialists highly treasonous. It continues to spew paranoid and delusional rhetoric about Jews and the west. Article 34 speaks of conquering the land from Al-Arish to the Euphrates, that’s the Biblical promised land, i.e. Israel. Article 35 speaks about Saladin nostalgically. Saladin defeated the Crusaders and captured Jerusalem in 1187, for those who don’t know the history. The Hamas Charter ends with a reassurance that it “does not seek personal fame, material gain, or social prominence … does not aim to compete against any one from among our people, or take his place. Nothing of the sort at all …” Oh no, on the contrary it only seeks to consolidate support against “the Zionist enemy and its lackeys.”
For those still not clued in, or choosing to remain in their western liberal delusional mindset, those lackeys of the Zionist enemy include Canada and the USA and Europe. Yeah, dear readers, even Canadian readers — Hamas is coming for your ass. Hamas is coming for your kids and they plan to do to your kids and mine exactly what they did to Shani Louk and the hundreds of others who died in the October 7 Simchat Torah Slaughter.

Founded by Egyptian named Hassan Al-Banna, who once told the NYT that Arabs will drive Jews living in the Jewish state into the Sea. Al-Banna took his inspiration from Rashid Rida, one of the most influential Islamic scholars and jurists in modernity, and one of the most important for any Western researcher or scholar of Islamism and modern day terrorist groups such as Hamas.
Israel supplies 10% of Gaza’s water, it is unable to supply more because the water infrastructure of Gaza could not tolerate any addition flow from Israel — the infrastructure in Gaza suffers because the leadership cares more about rockets and water.
The Grand Mufti is another name for Hajj Amin al-Husayni, father of Palestinian nationalism, the Nazi Mufti, and the source of all the alarmist propaganda about al-aqsa.
Reports indicate that Hamas terrorists take Captogan, a synthetic form of meth, in order to achieve a high level of rage and aggression — the October 7th killers likely were high on Captogan during their murderous rampage.
He co-founded al-Majd with Rahawi Mushtata
A lengthy intellectual and jurisprudential debate took place in the Islamic world that involved rationality and you can read about it here.
Israel repeated the same mistake the Shah and the USA did with the Ayatollah and his revolution, and now the incredible severe military campaign to crush Hamas completely must happen. The complacency and arrogance of past western leaders to the dangers of Islam greatly cost present and future societies.
Note for readers, I want to remind you that at some point it could and should be possible to make a distinction between people who consider themselves followers of Islam and and people who consider themselves Muslims — this all hinges on the willingness to disengage from and eradicate anti-semitism within the Muslim community.
