The Hamas Charter‘s second section is about “objectives,” captured in Articles Nine and Ten.
Incentives and Objectives:
The Islamic Resistance Movement found itself at a time when Islam has disappeared from life. Thus rules shook, concepts were upset, values changed and evil people took control, oppression and darkness prevailed, cowards became like tigers: homelands were usurped, people were scattered and were caused to wander all over the world, the state of justice disappeared and the state of falsehood replaced it. Nothing remained in its right place. Thus, when Islam is absent from the arena, everything changes. From this state of affairs the incentives are drawn.
As for the objectives: They are the fighting against the false, defeating it and vanquishing it so that justice could prevail, homelands be retrieved and from its mosques would the voice of the mu’azen emerge declaring the establishment of the state of Islam, so that people and things would return each to their right places and Allah is our helper.
“…and if Allah had not prevented men, the one by the other, verily the earth had been corrupted: but Allah is beneficient towards his creatures.” (The Cow – verse 251).
As the Islamic Resistance Movement paves its way, it will back the oppressed and support the wronged with all its might. It will spare no effort to bring about justice and defeat injustice, in word and deed, in this place and everywhere it can reach and have influence therein.
The defeat of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I is the beginning of the end for the Islamic Resistance Movement, when “Islam disappeared from life.” The foreign forces, whether French, British or Zionists are considered “evil,” and caused people to scatter. It is specifically the absence of Islam that is the core of the problem.
The goal of HAMAS is to vanquish the non-Muslims and declare the “establishment of the state of Islam.” Only with complete Islamic control of the region can there be peace and justice. It is the local variant of ISIS.
And the Palestinian Arabs elected Hamas to 58% of the parliament with this charter, the United Nations pushes for Hamas to be part of a unity government, and the media talks of “Islamic resistance” as a peaceful and natural endeavor.
