The hostility did not start with Hamas. They just Islamicized it.<quoted text>
A poster on another thread posted the following and if it is true then Hamas would love to see it.
"The Jewish serpent will show its hydras heads everywhere, blocking the way to a relaxation of international tensions. We Jews will not allow peace in the world, however hard statesmen and peace advocates try to bring it about. London Jewish Chronicle, March 3, 1939"
Note these points taken from the quote.
1. BLOCKING the way TO a relaxation of international TENSIONS.
2. Jews will NOT ALLOW PEACE in the WORLD, however hard statesmen and PEACE advocates TRY to bring it about.
If the quote is true, where was Hamas in 1939?
If the quote is true, was there hostility between Jews and Palestinians in 1939? Not to my knowledge.
Jews and non-Jews, people of integrity think about it honestly and objectively.
You should research the 1929 Hebron riots.http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/1929_Palestine_riots
That all said, Israel withdrew from their settlements in Gaza in 2005 with the full expectation that in return, everyone would live in peace. The borders were fully open for commerce. Within a few months, Hamas seized control of Gaza and soon afterwords started the rocket attacks.
