Down with Hamas

Hamas’ public execution of 18 alleged informants brings home the reality that Hamas is to Israel as ISIS is the United States, only closer. As the United States reacted in horror to the beheading of James Foley, so, too, did Israel react in horror to Hamas’ murder of three teens simply because they were Jewish.

Despite its denial, Hamas is another version of ISIS, al Qaida and the Taliban, whose main principles are intolerance, ethnic cleansing, jihad and death to infidels.

The interests of the Palestinian people are not Hamas’ priority. They could have had a thriving state for Palestinians, if only they would abandon their doctrine of annihilating Israel. People of reason around the world should rally against Hamas.
