Hamas Seeks an Islamic Caliphate, Not an Independent Palestinian State - Zvi Mazel
As an Islamic jihadi
caliphate is strengthening its hold in the heart of the Middle East,
the West seems intent on venting its frustrations on Israel, which is
defending itself against Hamas, another radical Islamist group. Hamas
was founded by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood,
with the express purpose of destroying Israel and establishing an
Islamic state on the ruins of the Jewish state.
the West has yet to realize that Hamas is using the Palestinian problem
and spouting fake nationalistic slogans in order to further its aims.
Yet Hamas does not speak of creating an independent Palestinian state.
Instead it says it is fighting "occupation," a word encompassing Tel
Aviv and the whole of Israel.
Egypt is the last rampart of the
Arab world against the barbaric Islamic state taking shape, as Iraq and
Syria are in disarray. The writer is a former Israeli Ambassador to Egypt. (Jerusalem Post)
