Dr. Muhammad Abd Al-Rahman Al- Masri [Muslim Brotherhood] wrote that the conflict between Muslims and Israel is, at heart, religious and that jihad must be waged wherever Islamic land is occupied: “The conflict between the Zionist state and the Muslim ummah is not like the fight between a landowner and a plundering occupier. This fight is, in essence, a struggle of faith... The Koran indicates this fight (will continue) until the Day of Judgment.” October 2011
“The liberation [of Palestine] will come with the help of Allah, until it is attained by the last soldier, woman, and child, despite resistance by Israel and the United States…. Jerusalem will become Arab and Muslim again, including all the places holy to Islam and Christianity.” Hamas Leader, Khaled Mash’al 2006
"Neither the liberation of the Gaza Strip, nor the liberation of the West Bank or even Jerusalem will suffice us. Hamas will pursue the armed struggle until the liberation of all our lands. We don't recognize the state of Israel or its right to hold onto one inch of Palestine. Palestine is an Islamic land belonging to all the Muslims." Hamas Leader in Gaza, Mahmoud Zahar 2005
The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) 18 August 1988 Preamble excerpt: Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it“ (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times... It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine, for under the wing of Islam followers of all religions can coexist in security and safety where their lives, possessions and rights are concerned... Excerpts from Hamas charter: The martyrs' oath
The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: 'The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him...' Excerpts from Hamas charter: The martyrs' oath
The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion... It relies greatly in its infiltration and espionage operations on the secret organizations it gave rise to, such as the Freemasons, the Rotary and Lions clubs, and other sabotage groups. All these organizations, whether secret or open, work in the interest of Zionism and according to its instructions... Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Muslim people. 'May the cowards never sleep.'" Excerpts from Hamas charter: The martyrs' oath
Genesis 16:11-12 The angel of the Lord also said to her: "You are now with child and you will have a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."
Joel 3:1-3 “In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will enter into judgment against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. They cast lots for my people and traded boys for prostitutes; they sold girls for wine that they might drink.”
