Hamas

A Brief History of Revolution

With every threat to me, I feel proud that I am a bone in the enemy’s throat. When the enemy chases me, threatens me and tries to assassinate me, it makes me feel that I am walking, thanks be to God, on the right path.

People who want the liberation of their land, self-determination, independence and freedom from occupation must be patient. They have no choice other than sacrifice and resistance. Our people are noble and have practiced this for dozens of years and will continue to do so.

Military force is an option that our people resort to because nothing else works. Israel’s conduct and the collusion of the international community, whether through silence or indifference or actual embroilment, vindicate armed resistance. We would love to see this conflict resolved peacefully. If occupation were to come to an end and our people enabled to exercise self-determination in their homeland, there would then be no need for any use of force.

Khaled Meshal, Damascus-based leader of Hamas

Gandhi was fighting for the independence of his country, Hamas are fighting for the survival of their country, the size of which has shrinked by 90% in less than a century.
Besides, Gandhi famously said: "'I do believe that where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence."
also, what exactly would you advice Hamas to do? i would like to have your opinion about that.
and finally, if i break into your home and throw your family out, and then you shoot my son in revenge, you would be committing a terrible crime, but still, my son would still be alive if hadn't taken over your home, and therefore i would be primarily responsible for the death of my son.

Palestine was a country?
Look it up - it has never, in the history of the countries on the planet of Tellus, been among any list of countries. Nice try

Uh-huh and what was England called many years ago before it was called England? What was Turkey called before it adopted the name Turkey, how about Zimbabwe? And on and on and on. Please don't embarass yourself any further with such rookie logic.
Call it Cannans Land, call it Philistine, call it what you will the facts are clear: Palestinians trace their ancestors to continuous habitation of Palestine and the Zionist territories for literally thousand of years. Jews? Couple hundred at best and not continual. Furthermore the vast majority of "Jews" today have zero blood connection to Palestine. They aren't even Semites. They're Slavs who converted to Judaism - white people from Europe (look in the mirror sometime Zionist - you're white - ever wonder why?)
Also if "Israel" is a country please Tellus what are it's borders? Doh! That's gunna hurt in the morning. And since "Israel" has no borders to define where this alleged country lies it continues to be referred to with quotation marks around it as in: "Israel" that supposed place that calls itself a country but is nothing more than a colonialist outpost for white racist zealots to exercise ethnic cleansing against another brown people.
Nice try cracker.

"Israel" is of course finished.
Every day those who support the inane platform of Zionism are forced into an ever dwindling cabal of racist nut-jobs thanks in great measure to the democratizing effects of the internet and the liberation of information from the sweaty clutches of the power elite - in this case the Jewish Establishment.
It's simply no longer possible to come across as "cool" and support "Israel" in any way. All the sacred cows of Zionist fear-mongering and political bullying are defeated. The hackneyed narrative of "jewish innocence" and "jewish entitlement" have been thoroughly debunked as fraud - even by prominent Jews themselves. The last desperate hold-outs like Dershowits or known mouth-piece Dennis Ross have been dispatched as hapless buffoons and utterly discredited. On college campuses all across Canada and the U.S where the last hope for Jewish hegemony and political domination once resided anyone who identifies as pro-Israeli is rightly decried as a racist, a hypocrite and even a criminal. Certainly nothing any of these country's young people aspire to unless they harbor deep, deep seated feelings of inadequacy, inferiority and outright misanthropy.
With-in "Israel" the schism is even more profound as the left gains on the right with the aid, finally, of international media who at last publicize the true face of "Israel" - a sinister experiment made at the expense of Palestine and indeed the poor unwitting Jews who were shipped there as cannon fodder by elite religious colonialists in Europe and America.
The facade is crumbling. History repeats the painful lesson to the self-righteous racists yet again: your time is short in this world.
Those with any sense are already jumping ship.
"Israel" R.I.P.
