Why is Hamas Fighting Israel?

I have been racking my brains trying to understand what Hamas wants out of this war.

There is simply nothing they haven’t done to force Israel into it, and there isn’t anything they haven’t done to force it to continue, and to force it to continue inside Gaza.

They’ve gone so far as to destroy their own country and infrastructure simply to fight this war.

For what possible reason?

I thought at first it was about Palestinian elections. A good showing in a fight with Israel, would bring them victory over Fatah at the polls.

But they could have stopped a while ago, and they would have achieved that.

I thought perhaps they thought they deluded themselves into thinking they could actually destroy Israel. But they’ve certainly realized by now, as life continues on mostly normal in Israel, and mostly destroyed in Gaza, that they can’t destroy Israel.

So what’s left?

Instructions from Iran? To what? Self-destruct?

Recognition by the US? They clearly have that.

But I realized there’s only one common thread throughout this entire war.

It’s not the rockets and missiles.

That’s just the side show.

It’s not the tunnels themselves, as those are just facilitators.

It’s kidnappings.

Everything, and I mean everything Hamas has done has been about kidnapping soldiers and Jews.

They’ve funded Hamas in Hebron for the sole purpose of kidnapping Jews.

In every battle they’ve tried to kidnap dead IDF soldier’s bodies.

They keep bragging that they kidnapped soldiers, even when they haven’t.

Every tunnel has been about trying to kidnap soldiers or civilians.

It may be the after-effect and lessons they learned from the Gilad Shalit fiasco. Or it just may be their Islamo-sick psyche.

But they are willing to destroy themselves down to the last man and the last house, as long as they can grab a soldier or Jew.

That’s all that this war has been about. That’s why it hasn’t ended yet. Hamas needs a kidnapped soldier.

Postscript: 1:50pm For the past week, all I’ve been thinking about is what does Hamas want from us in this wae. It came to me this morning, that its only about kidnapping and nothing more. And if the reports coming out now are true, they may have succeeded. The question is, what will our Prime Minister do now, and I can only hope he chooses absolute victory over Hamas and Gaza.

All our prayers now are with our soldiers.

  1. ask who initiated this war about his goals, the 3 Israeli boys who were told to be kidnaped and killed by the Palestinians were killed by the Israeli rightest radical groups, Netanyahu used this accident to initiate a war against the Palestinians, we all know, the world is watching

  2. No ceasefire less than 10 hours after hamas agreed to USA and UN hamas resumed attacking. Kidnapped IDF soldier. Is hamas wants to be exterminated for religious ritual, as they keep telling us, it appears they will be getting Christmas presents early this year. Freely.

  4. Israel is a legitimate Sovereign Nation and there is no question it was made legally. Jews have had a continuous presence in this land thst is proven back at least 3,200 yeats by archeological and historical record. The UN Partition of 1947 gave birth to two States, the Kingdom of Jordan, an Arab State and Israel, the Jewish State. There h as ve only been three Sovereign States there, Israel and Judah were kingdoms prior to the Roman conquest. The Romans, in an attempt to destroy the Jewish people’s renamed the area Syria Palestina. Yhe Arabs arrived when Islam extended it’s territory by the sword about a thousand years ago.

  6. By all this mambo jumbo: you just spewed out, all the rockets and more would be in Gaza, if the blockades were not in place! All the aid they have recieved( Gaza) they built tunnels instead of improving their lot in life, by building farming, schools, and roadways! No they chose to unite with Hamas a known terrorist group! And declare as always the complete destruction of the Jewish State, recognized by every one but the PA/Ham-ass! So by protecting themselves from evil, you propose the stop trying to defending themselves, just bc you say this trash talk! If that is the case let Russia build up Cuba, you moron! #Israelattackfirstformonths!…. Simply solution, Gaza recognizes Israel as a State, and stop the threats and peace will happen as soon as the sign the agreement, #ThatsallIsraelwant.

  7. @Qas.. That is a bold face lie and you know it! Islam is an ideology, not a religion! Just like Nazism, born and bred to do nothing but premeditate murders upon anyone, (regardless if Jewish or not,) not Islamic! That is the real truth and you know it! The Jewish God of Israel is preventing you and your Nazi ideology from doing any great harm to Israel, He is even redirecting your rockets even in the air! Even IF, you have some success, the God of Israel, will wipe you out, and Islam will become what it is, trail dung for the desert!
