In their own words

The latest BBC whitewashing of Hamas comes from their reporter Paul Adams, who in the course of an astonishingly worshipful paean to the group makes the following claim:
The international community shunned Hamas because of its association with terrorism, despite being advised by many on the ground that constructive engagement might be a more profitable course of action.
It's worth having a look at the Hamas charter to see what that group really thinks of "constructive engagement":
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it" ([Quote from] The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).

The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: "The Day of Judgement 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." 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.

The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion"...

So, to summarize: Hamas believes that no part of Palestine must be surrendered, and that Israel must be destroyed; it finds inspiration in a brutal anti-Semitic forgery like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and looks forward to the day when, with Allah's blessing, all of the Jews will be massacred by Muslims. And just imagine: the Israelis believe that this group is somehow dangerous to them! Where on earth could they have gotten that idea from?
