One can really appreciate the antisemitism integrated with anti-Zionism in Article 28 of the Hamas Charter.
D. Arab and Islamic Countries:
The Zionist invasion is a vicious invasion. It does not refrain from resorting to all methods, using all evil and contemptible ways to achieve its end. 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. They aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam. It is behind the drug trade and alcoholism in all its kinds so as to facilitate its control and expansion.
Arab countries surrounding Israel are asked to open their borders before the fighters from among the Arab and Islamic nations so that they could consolidate their efforts with those of their Moslem brethren in Palestine.
As for the other Arab and Islamic countries, they are asked to facilitate the movement of the fighters from and to it, and this is the least thing they could do.
We should not forget to remind every Moslem that when the Jews conquered the Holy City in 1967, they stood on the threshold of the Aqsa Mosque and proclaimed that “Mohammed is dead, and his descendants are all women.”
Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people. “May the cowards never sleep.”
Hamas and its supporters believe that they are in a battle with a “vicious” and “evil” enemy which resorts to “contemptible ways to achieve its end.” The Zionists use “secret organizations” and “espionage” with the “aim at undermining societies, destroying values, corrupting consciences, deteriorating character and annihilating Islam. It is behind the drug trade and alcoholism” in an effort “to facilitate its control and expansion.” As such, “Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people.”
For Hamas, this is more than a territorial dispute against a “Zionist invasion“: this is a battle against a contemptible Jewish people who are “resorting to all methods” to destroy Islam. It is a violent jihad against the Jews.
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.
