  1. Jul 4, 2012 Hamas, An Israeli Creation

    Ron Paul alludes to the fact that Israel helped to spawn Hamas in order to weaken the then immensely popular and secular PLO.

    Jan. 24, 2009 How Israel Helped to Spawn Hamas Moshav Tekuma, Israel

    Surveying the wreckage of a neighbor’s bungalow hit by a Palestinian rocket, retired Israeli official Avner Cohen traces the missile’s trajectory back to an “enormous, stupid mistake” made 30 years ago.

    1. I am not surprised Israel helped create Hamas. It wants there to be more chaos in the Middle East. The US and UK caused Al Qaeda and ISIS to form even if they did not help create them.
      Rumsfeld was more interested in war with Iraq than Afghanistan because Iraq was secular under Hussein. Tony Blair said the Iraq War caused ISIS to form but he still justifies that war.
      The US, UK and Israel want there to be a clash of civilizations and they caused that to happen.

      1. You have it friend, and I just checked this link to make sure it still works and it does.

        18 Nov 2012 Israel and the U.S. CREATED Hamas, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda Creating the Enemies We Now Fight Against

        We’ve extensively documented that the U.S. and Israel created Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups in an attempt to fight other enemies.

  2. Hams was never was a creation of Israel. Israel only allowed to exist following the moto of “ divide and conquer “ thinking that Hamas would be only concerned with religious matters and would not be independent minded. Hamas won the election fairly and squarely because most Palestinians got very disenchanted with the other Palestinian faction total failure of the so called peace process that brought no independence or freedom. Israel allowed Hamas to operate but didn’t created. Now, Israel is spreading the nonsense notion that it created Hamas as means of this created and delegitimize it in the minds of Arab and Muslims people and more specifically the Palestinian people themselves. Allowing something to exist is not the same as creating it.

  3. JOE BIDEN TRAVELED to Jerusalem as an official U.S. international observer for Palestinian Authority elections in 2006, where Hamas, a political party that has an armed wing of the same name, was ahead in the polls in the Gaza Strip. Just days before voting began, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was hospitalized with a stroke. Biden said he was distraught when he heard the news about the accused war criminal. Sharon “has always been steadfast in fighting for Israel’s security,” Biden said, before heaping praise on the Israeli leader, who was a key player, before and during his tenure as prime minister, in some of the worst massacres of Palestinians. Biden added, “It is his vision for making peace with the Palestinians and achieving a two-state solution that has driven him in recent years.”
    When Hamas, which the U.S. government had designated a terrorist organization, won a resounding victory in Gaza, it sent shockwaves through Washington. Biden called the results “sobering” and declared, “Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with a party that calls for its destruction.” Biden said President George W. Bush was “dead right” in his denunciation of the election results. Within days, Biden began suggesting that the U.S. and Europe should sanction Hamas and cut off aid to the Palestinian Authority.

  4. US plotted to overthrow Hamas after election victory

    “ The Bush administration, caught out by the rise of Hamas, embarked on a secret project for the armed overthrow of the Islamist government in Gaza, it emerged yesterday.
    Vanity Fair reports in its April edition that President George Bush and the secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, signed off on a plan for the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, to remove the Hamas authorities in Gaza. The plan called for Washington’s allies in the region to funnel arms and salaries to Fatah fighters who would lead a rising against Hamas.”
