As long as Hamas controls Gaza, the Palestinians of Gaza will get little to no sympathy from liberal-minded observers.  Hamas philosophy and actions are stridently anti-Semitic and run counter to everything that atheists and other liberals believe in.  Here are some excerpts from the Hamas Charter:


“Our struggle against the Jews is extremely wide-ranging and grave, so much so that it will need all the loyal efforts we can wield, to be followed by further steps and reinforced by successive battalions from the multifarious Arab and Islamic world, until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory prevails”.


“Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said:  The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”.


“In order to face the usurpation of Palestine by the Jews, we have no escape from raising the banner of Jihad. This would require the propagation of Islamic consciousness among the masses on all local, Arab and Islamic levels. We must spread the spirit of Jihad among the [Islamic] Umma,clash with the enemies and join the ranks of the Jihad fighters”.


“Israel, by virtue of its being Jewish and of having a Jewish population, defies Islam and the Muslims”.


“The Islamic nature of Palestine is part of our religion, and anyone who neglects his religion is bound to lose”.


“Safety and security can only prevail under the shadow of Islam”.


And so on.


As long as Hamas controls Gaza, it doesn’t really matter whether some of Israel’s actions are right or wrong, no decent person can stand with Hamas against Israel.


The Palestinians of Gaza need help, and all Palestinians need a state, but Hamas stands in the way.
