Dating back to theorists like Plato and Aristotle, mankind has questioned what it means to be sovereign, as a state and as a person. What does it mean to be a society or part of one? We have been divided by social class, ethnicity, race, gender and religion since time has told.
That divide has unfortunately brought hate and a desire for power. Hate is a crime, crime of humanity and a crime by law. United States Congress has defined a hate crime as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.”
Hama’s declaration calls out for exactly that! It calls out for annihilation of Israel, a religious coexisting democracy in the Middle East, all Jewish people and in addition to speaking out against the western world. What we are seeing now is just a piece of the puzzle in world terrorism.
Hamas by definition is the “Islamic Resistance Movement” (Arabic acronym meaning zeal). Zeal is defined as fervent or enthusiastic devotion, often extreme or fanatical in nature, as to a religious movement, political cause, ideal, or aspiration.
Hamas has proven itself to be a true zeal, motivated by religious extremism using fanatical tactics to try to achieve its goal. Israel is fighting against the terror now but what will come next if the world doesn’t open their eyes?
This isn’t an Arab/Israel issue nor is it a Muslim/Jewish issue. This is a conflict between terrorism and the free world and to remain free the world needs to starting accepting the truth!
