2Who ever heard of such a thing. Who has ever seen such things Who ever heard of such a thing? Who has ever seen such things? Is a country born in one day? Is a nation brought forth all at once? For as soon as Tziyon went into labor, she brought forth her children. “Would I let the baby break through and not be born?” asks Adonai. “Would I, who cause the birth, shut the womb?” asks your God.Isaiah 66: Complete Jewish Bible

10Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et alWith regards to these nine accusationsthat you are putting us on trial for; to us,they are not accusations. To us they are badges of honor,which we carry with pride.Many thanks to God, for his kind gesture,and choosing us to perform the act of Jihad for his causeand to defend Islam and Muslims.Therefore, killing you and fighting you,destroying you and terrorizing you,responding back to your attacks,are all considered to be great legitimate duty in our religion.These actions are our offerings to God.
11Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et alYou have violated the law of war by supportingthe Israeli occupation of Arab land in Palestineand Lebanon, and for displacingfive million Palestinians outside their land.You have supported the oppressor over the oppressedand the butcher over the victim.
12Answer to 9 accusations by the US government– 5/09 Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, et alWe do not possess your military might, nor your nuclear weapons.Nevertheless, we fight you with the almighty God.So, if our act of Jihad and our fighting with youcaused fear and terror, then many thanks to God,because it is him that has thrown fear into your hearts,which resulted in your infidelity, paganism,and your statement that Godhad a son and your trinity beliefs.So, our religion is a religion of fear and terror to the enemies of God:the Jews, Christians, and pagans. With God's willing,we are terrorists to the bone. So, many thanks to God.

80Inner Face: South Wall - In the name of Allah the Merciful the Compassionate. There is no God but Allah alone; he has noco-partner. He is the Kingship and His the praise. He giveth life and He causeth to die, and He hath power over everything.South-East Wall - Verily Allah and His angels pronounce blessing upon the Prophet. O ye who have pronounced blessings upon Him and give Him the salutation of peace. O, People of the Book (i.e. the Jews and Christians, always referred to as such by the Muslims -Ed.) do not go beyond the bounds in your religion and do not say about Allah anything but the truth. The Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, is but a messenger of Allah and His word which he cast upon Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe only in Allah and of his messenger, but do not say "Three" (Trinity) and it will be better for you. Allah is only one God. Far be it from His glory that he should have a son.
81North Wall - The Messiah will not deign to be in the service of Allah nor will the angels who stand in his presence. O Allah; pray upon Thy messenger "the servant Jesus –(N-W Wall) - the son of Mary and peace be upon him the day of his birth, the day of his death and the day of his being raised alive." That is Jesus, son of Mary - a statement concerning which YOU are in doubt. It is not for Allah to take for Himself any offspring, glory be to Him. West Wall - Allah bears witness that there is no God but Him, likewise the angels and the people possessed of knowledge(S-W Wall) - upholding justice. There is no God but He, the Almighty and All wise. Verily, the religion in Allah's sight is Islam.
82Outer Face - West and North-West Walls - In the name of Allah the Merciful and Compassionate. There is no God but Allah alone. Praise be to Allah who hath not taken to himself offspring. To Him there has never been any person in the sovereignty. Mohammed is the messenger of Allah, may God pray upon Him and accept his intercession. Praise be God who has not taken unto himself a son and who has no partner in sovereignty nor has He any protector on account of weakness.

112The 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).Article Six:The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) is a distinguished Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is Islam. 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. In the absence of Islam, strife will be rife, oppression spreads, evil prevails and schisms and wars will break out.
113Article 11 excerpt:The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up.Article 13 excerpt:There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.
114Article 15 excerpt:It is necessary to instill in the minds of the Moslem generations that the Palestinian problem is a religious problem, and should be dealt with on this basis.Article 23 excerpt:The Islamic Resistance Movement views other Islamic movements with respect and appreciation.
