Former terrorist says West ignoring real Hamas agenda

by Chad Groening – OneNewsNow

A former Palestinian terrorist says the West continues to pursue a failed idea that somehow terrorism against Israel will stop when the Palestinians get their own homeland.

Walid Shoebat is a former member of the Palestine Liberation Organization and a convert to Christianity. He now runs the Walid Shoebat Foundation, which is an organization that cries out for the justice of Israel and the Jewish people. Shoebat, author of the recently published God’s War on Terror: Islam, Prophecy and the Bible, believes the recent terrorist rocket attacks by Hamas have nothing to do with wanting a Palestinian homeland.

“The core issue is not an issue of land whatsoever. It’s an issue of wiping the state of Israel out. If you look at even suicide bombing — historically, if you look from 1980 until 2003, let’s say — 224 suicide bombings out of 300 existed in Islamic countries with no occupation whatsoever,” he notes. “So it’s not simply the desire to create a Palestinian state. It is the desire to destroy the Jewish state, and that’s what we see.”

Shoebat contends this effort is being carried out by a huge network of Islamic enemies. “It’s a rebel network involved between Hamas, Hezbollah, and Iran, Syria. Many Islamic countries are involved in this,” he points out. “Saudi Arabia was funding…this kind of thing. So it’s a huge network that we’re dealing with.”

    Just because ONE ex-Hamas terrorist states that is the intention of the Hamas militants doesn’t mean it is. Hamas was adhering to the cease fire until Israel launched it’s so-called “pinpoint attack” along with two airstrikes in November 2008. That doesn’t sound like a group of people intent on irradicating the entire state of Israel to me.

    You must be joking, or you insist on ignoring the facts. Hamas honored the cease fire? Hamas broke the truce in March 2007 and recently. Hamas is now going around assaulting Fatah members, breaking hands, imprisoning them. Hamas, Hezbollah, Iran and Syria are working together to destroy Israel. This is common knowledge. Why you deny it is unfathomable.

    Even Obama has said Israel need not put up with Hamas rocket attacks. Do some homework. Is truth even important anymore?,7340,L-3145475,00.html

    Um, this was a six month truce that started in June?

  4. Allan Erickson says:

    There have been several truces over the years, every one broken by Hamas, even the most recent. Hamas was chartered in 1988. They’ve been murdering civilians: men, women and children, ever since, with Iran’s blessing.

    Hamas Charter: “”Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it. There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.”
