Hamas in its own words: ‘Kill the Jews’

October 23, 2023

Hamas claims charges that its program is based on Jew-hatred are a slander. So that our readers can judge for themselves we reproduce below quotes from the 1988 Hamas covenant, which the group has never repudiated, and is in its updated charter issued in 2017.

From the 1988 Hamas covenant

“The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”

“With their money, they [the Jews] took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others.”

From the revised 2017 charter

“The establishment of ‘Israel’ is entirely illegal and contravenes the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.”

“There shall be no recognition of the legitimacy of the Zionist entity. Whatever has befallen the land of Palestine in terms of occupation, settlement, building, judaisation or changes to its features or falsification of facts is illegitimate.”

“Hamas rejects any alternative to the full and complete liberation of Palestine, from the river to the sea.”
