Hamas at 31: As Committed as Ever to Israel’s Destruction

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Hamas’s 31st anniversary was marked with a string of terror attacks and an official statement by the organization’s leader, Ismail Haniyeh, rejecting any recognition of the legitimacy of Jewish statehood. This provides further proof, if any were needed, of the impossibility of reaching a long-term arrangement with the organization.

In what has become standard practice, this month’s celebration of Hamas’s 31st anniversary was marked by a string of terror attacks and an official statement issued by the organization’s leader, Ismail Haniyeh, vowing the continuation of the “resistance” until the goals of “freedom, liberation and return” have been achieved. The statement boasts that notwithstanding the massive attempts to break its will and steadfastness, Hamas has succeeded in rallying the Palestinians behind a national political plan to end the “Zionist occupation” and derail President Trump’s “deal of the century,” viewed by the organization as a Zionist-American conspiracy to undermine the Palestinian national struggle. Hence, “it is our legitimate right to cleanse our land from the occupation by using all means permitted by international law, and we have the right to Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Palestine.”

Making no effort to disguise its ultimate goal of establishing a Palestinian state on Israel’s ruins in the entirety of Mandatory Palestine, or its categorical rejection of the idea of Jewish statehood, Hamas draws comfort from the deafening aloofness of the international community to its genocidal vision and activities. Thus, for example, the glaring failure of the UN to condemn Hamas’s countless war crimes over the years (be they firing missiles and rockets at Israeli civilian population centers or straightforward terror attacks) has reinforced the organization’s belief that its terrorist actions are considered by the international community to be playing by the legitimate “rules of the game.”

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
