Hamas Hamas just give it up!!!!

Do you know what Hamas is and what they stand for....! There are two sides to every coin but this is the (PC) summary of what Hamas is as far as the United States is concerned(Walk with me I'm put you on to some basic but important facts). Hamas was created in 1987 by Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, Abdel Aziz al-Rantissi and Mohammad Taha of the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood at the beginning of the First Intifada. Hamas became best known for its numerous suicide bombings against Israeli civilians and security forces.[6] Hamas renounced the practice in April 2006,[7] but has continued, after a 5-month ceasefire in 2008, to launch rocket attacks into Israel, endangering and sometimes killing Israeli civilians. Hamas also runs extensive social programs, and gained popularity among Palestinians by establishing hospitals, education systems, libraries and other services in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.[8]
Hamas's charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel[citation needed] and its replacement with a Palestinian Islamic state in the area that is now Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip.[9] Hamas has come to accept the 1967 Green Line as a border for a two-state solution.[10][11] Hamas describes its conflict with Israel as political and neither religious[12] nor antisemitic.[13][14] However, its founding charter, writings, and many of its public statements[15] reflect the influence of antisemitic conspiracy theories.[16]
