(Scroll down for video) A Hamas leader told Israelis that Palestinians love death for Allah as Israelis love life, the IDF Blog reported.
Hamas’ Military Wing, the Al Qassam Brigades, recently published a tweet that exposes their fundamentalist and radical Islamist ideology.
“We are continuing our struggle. Allah is our goal. The prophet is our leader. Jihad is our way, and death for Allah is our most exalted wish,” the Al Qassam Brigades tweeted.
This tweet, published earlier this week, is taken nearly word for word from the terror group’s infamous charter, which was written in 1998.
In Article 8 of the charter, under the title “The Slogan of the Islamic Resistance Movement,” it is written: “Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, and the Koran its constitution. Jihad is its path, and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes,” according to a translation by Yale Law School.
This recent tweet serves as a reminder of Hamas’ radical Islamist nature that is enshrined in the terror group’s charter.
Hamas leaders have made many statements saying that they seek death as the Israelis seek life, such as in the commander of Hamas’ military wing, Muhammad Dief, speech last month.
As seen by Hamas’ cruel use of civilian infrastructure during Operation Protective Edge, endangering the residents of the Gaza Strip, these are not just empty words.
Moreover, though this recent tweet is quoted nearly verbatim in Hamas’ charter, it has a much earlier source. The words “Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, and the Koran its constitution. Jihad is its path, and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes,” is the slogan of the Muslim Brotherhood – the transnational Islamist organization founded in 1928 in Egypt.
Therefore, this recent Al Qassam Brigades tweet also serves as a reminder that Hamas is a political satellite of the Muslim Brotherhood.
However, although the Muslim Brotherhood’s top leader renounced violence many years ago, violence, such as kidnappings and indiscriminate rocket fire, continues to be the modus operandi of Hamas.
