The Truth Of Hamas, In Their Own Words

The following video is a presentation of MEMRI a group which does an absolutely excellent job of bringing Middle East media to the rest of the world, allowing us to judge the nations and the religiosity of the region for ourselves.

In case you are not wanting to watch the whole of the video of I have made a transcription of the various clips within the video. I think it is important that every person knows what is being taught and told to Muslims around the world. By conducting a little personal research it is easy to determine that statements such as you will see in the video are not a peculiarity of Hamas only.

The rhetoric is wide spread and readily received. I would like not to think that the majority of Muslims believe the type of preaching that comes from Hamas and similar groups, but the more I look at the media from Islamic nations the less I believe the claim that Islam has been hijacked by a minority of radicals.

That is something I suppose each individual person can decide upon for themselves for the time being, I suspect that the truth of it will be known sooner or later.

The transcript is posted below the video.

Very soon, Allah willing, Rome will be conquered, just like Constantinoble was.
