    By Dr. Ahmed Yousef - Gaza

    The Israeli occupation has never missed an opportunity to brand Hamas a fundamentalist, terrorist, racist, anti-Semitic organization. True to the Mossad motto which states 'By way of deception, though shall do war,' it has excelled at taking select articles from the Islamic party’s charter and using them, out of context, to justify its claims.

    The Israelis have, for example, translated the charter to several languages, English and French included, intentionally perverting the substance of its tenets to suit their purposes. Those aims were to market its fraudulent translation to as many Western politicians, academics and media channels as possible; and therefore make it easier to claim security concerns as the basis for their legal infractions. The fear-mongering is designed to horrify the West so much that it turns a blind eye to the crimes against humanity which contravene international law.

    Despite my consistent clarification that Hamas must be evaluated on its official actions and political positions, it is evident that the Israeli propaganda machine has over a two year period successfully brainwashed those it has targeted. Many observers have become incapable of making an impartial assessment of the significant transformations the movement has undergone; and instead have parroted the Israeli position, adopting the obstinacy of what a local colloquialism notes “is a goat, even if it has wings.”

    We don't need "your" clarification. Yasser Arrafat was the sixth wealthiest person in the world during his "reign" over the Palestinians. We see the attrocities the "terrorists" comitt on their own people. We see the attrocities Palestinians engage on Israeli citizens. Their charter is less important than their actions. The money the UN sends to the refuge camps are not spent on the people, it is embezzled by the leadership. I don't really care what Israelis say about what Hamas believes. I just watch Hamas and its actions. They are corrupt, violent and bring no benefit to the world.

    Arafat was wealthy. Abbas, and his family and friends are wealthy too. They get paid well by the US and others to sell the Palestinians down the river. Their corruption is well known.

    That is why the people elected Hamas.

    The motto is actually "For by wise guidance you can wage your war", so your guy is basically lying right off the bat.

    It's not hard to see just what they do, since all one has to do is watch their acts I agree.

    Palestine Papers: PA, Israel Discussed Targeting Palestinian Militants

    The news network Al Jazeera continues to release more revelations contained in the "Palestine Papers" — more than 1,700 files from Israeli-Palestinian negotiations between 1999 and 2010. The latest disclosures show Palestinian officials discussed cooperating with Israel in killing Palestinian militants in the Occupied Territories. In one exchange, Palestinian and Israeli officials talked about targeting militant leader Hassan al-Madhoun four months before he was killed in an Israeli missile attack. Abdel Bari Atwan of the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper called the revelation "humiliating" for Palestinian leaders.

    Abdel Bari Atwan: "I am absolutely shocked. A Palestinian official admitting that he is killing his own people to keep the authority, to keep the one gun, and this gun actually is collaborating with the Israeli security and in order to keep law and order. What kind of law and order he is keeping by killing his own people? I think this is really very, very shocking and very humiliating to the Palestinian people."
