Palestinian Schoolbooks – 6/02 The Palestinians, the books claim, have first rights to the country. The "Arab Canaanites" were here before the Jews, therefore the Zionistic claim of rights to the land by virtue of forefathers are a lie. Zionism is described as a movement of which the seizing of land is foremost among its tenets.
“Bear in mind the words of Moses to his people. He said, “Remember, my people, the favor which God has bestowed upon you. He has raised up prophets among you, made you kings, and given you that which He has given to no other nation. Enter, my people, the holy land which God has assigned for you. Do not turn back and thus lose all.” Koran 5: 20-21

Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal reiterated his movement's refusal to lay down its weapons, saying Hamas's duty was to defend the Palestinians and help them restore their rights. "As long as Palestinian lands remain under occupation, Hamas won't lay down its weapons," he stressed. Mahmoud Zahar, Hamas's overall leader in the Gaza Strip stated, "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." August 2005
Hamas – Arabic = zeal Hamas – Hebrew verb = to treat violently Chamas -Hebrew noun = disruption of divinely established order
Palestinian National Charter - 1968 Article 9: Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. Thus it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase. Article 10: Commando action constitutes the nucleus of the Palestinian popular liberation war.
Palestinian National Charter - 1968 Article 15: The liberation of Palestine, from an Arab viewpoint, is a national duty and it attempts to repel the Zionist and imperialist aggression against the Arab homeland, and aims at the elimination of Zionism in Palestine.
Palestinian National Charter - 1968 Article 19: The partition of Palestine in 1947 and the establishment of the state of Israel are entirely illegal, regardless of the passage of time, because they were contrary to the will of the Palestinian people and to their natural right in their homeland, and inconsistent with the principles embodied in the Charter of the United Nations, particularly the right to self-determination.
Palestinian National Charter - 1968 Article 20: The Balfour Declaration, the Mandate for Palestine, and everything that has been based upon them, are deemed null and void. Claims of historical or religious ties of Jews with Palestine are incompatible with the facts of history and the true conception of what constitutes statehood. Judaism, being a religion, is not an independent nationality. Nor do Jews constitute a single nation with an identity of its own; they are citizens of the states to which they belong.

It is incumbent upon them to return to the Land of Israel due to terrible natural disasters which threaten the world. In the future, the Holy One, Blessed be He, will bring about great disasters in the countries of the world to sweeten the judgements of the Land of Israel. I am ordering the publication of this declaration as a warning, so that Jews in the countries of the world will be aware of the impending danger and will come to the Land of Israel for the building of the Temple and revelation of our righteous Mashiach (Messiah).” 9/15/05

“The Qur’an, Islam’s revealed text, states: “Whoever kills a person (unjustly) …it is as though he has killed all mankind. And whoever saves a life, it is as though he has saved all mankind.”” Actual text: Qur’an 5: 32 – “ That was why We wrote for the Children of Israel that who ever killed a soul, except for a soul slain (as punishment for murder), or for sedition in the earth (or other villainy in the land), it should be considered as though he had killed all mankind; and that who ever saved it should be regarded as though he had saved all mankind.”
