Peace Processing with Hamas, the Vox Populi of Arab Muslim Palestinian Society

From a Hamas poster glorifying the martyr who drowns the Zionists in blood (used as part of the cover art for Raphael Israeli’s seminal “Islamikaze”)

 

Key excerpts from the extended Haaretz interview with Christian convert Masab Yousef, son of West Bank Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef:

 

You Jews should be aware: You will never, but never have peace with Hamas. Islam, as the ideology that guides them, will not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the Jews. They believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed fought against the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight them to the death. They have to take revenge against anyone who did not agree to accept the Prophet Mohammed, like the Jews who are seen in the Koran as monkeys and the sons of pigs. They speak in terms of historical rights that were taken from them. In the view of Hamas, peace with Israel contradicts sharia and the Koran, and the Jews have no right to remain in Palestine.

 

Masab Yousef confirms the voluminous evidence amassed in The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism from Islam’s foundational texts (the preamble to Hamas’ Charter includes the central Antisemitic motif in the Koran, 3:112/2:61 which condemns the Jews to eternal humiliation and abasement for having transgressed against the will of Allah and slain his prophets). In addition the book contains (pp. 429-453) lengthy excerpts from Hamas ideologue Salah abd al Fattah al-Khalidi’s Koranic commentaries on the Jews entitled, “Koranic Truths Regarding the Palestinian Issue” —additional evidence of the Koranic hatred inspired amongst the Muslim masses by Hamas. Here is a prototypical extract from Khalidi’s vitriolic tract, which nonetheless simply rehashes traditional Islamic motifs:

 

The Jews’ history is one of disbelief in God, worshipping the calf instead of God, and worshipping gold and wealth. The Jews’ history is also one of dhull humiliation/inferiority and jubn cowardice, of rejecting al-jihaad war and battle, and entering the Holy Land faatiHiina as conquerors. Their history is one of al-tiih wandering, which God afflicted them with for forty years in Sinai, and it al-i`tidaa´ hostility to God’s laws, and fishing on the Sabbath day in a certain village, and their being transformed into apes and pigs. Their history is also one of disbelief and denial, breaking contracts, spreading al-fujuur licentiousness, rebellion against the prophets, and murdering those who do good works.

 

Their history is also one of God’s curse and anger against them, a history of al-maskh  transformation into apes and pigs, and al-qadhf slander, a history of al-Diyaa´ being lost, al-tiih wandering, and al-tashriid dispersion, a history of al-dhull humiliation/inferiority and  al-maskana wretchedness, with which God smote them, and al-tasliiT subjugation and al-ta`dhiib punishment, which God allotted them.

 

This is the true history of the Jews—let them glory in it and brag about it if they want!

 

The exceptional purely innocent ones among them, their prophets who did good works, separated themselves from the rest of the Jews and cursed them!!
