Why Does Hamas Hate Jews?

Israel is a tiny sliver of land surrounded by countries that dictators control. Millions of people are living under dictatorships, including Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Egypt.

Dictators teach religious control to their youth, who march in lockstep of obedience. They hate the infidels, who are people who don’t adhere to any religion other than Islam. Islam makes it clear and states in The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement, August 1988, “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” Dictators use religion to take control of their citizens and want to exterminate Israel because they feel threatened by a small nation with free people who think for themselves and thrive. Democratic societies, like Israel, believe in Freedom, family, and faith in a loving God.

Today, we see American students marching on our streets and intimidating and threatening Jews. Here are my thoughts on why our young people only understand the suffering of the Palestinian people and don’t know the history or understand the big picture.

The goal of the Hamas terrorists and Islam is to rule the world. Religion, good or bad, is powerful because humans are spiritual beings. Will America or Europe be their next target? We must wake up and realize democracy is at risk.

There are 10,000 religions worldwide, and many young Americans reject any religion. They don’t know that Christianity and Judaism believe in a peaceful, loving God who cares.

We should ask, Why didn’t Freedom flourish in Afghanistan? We were there for 20 years.

We should have promoted Christianity as a moral and spiritual foundation for the Afghan people. Spiritual education strengthens and empowers emotions, which was needed to help Afghans understand the power of the human spirit to develop courage, character, and a self-protective conscience.  Freedom is for both boys and girls to attend school and inspire them to start businesses and be creative in work and play. We neglected to give the Afghan people the practical teachings of Christianity, which could strengthen them against tyrants.

American Christianity survived over 250 years because it was founded by men of faith, which allowed them to excel based on the Bible and a God who cared about all people. Americans worked hard, faced challenges, and grew strong and resilient. Most Americans understood that Freedom was fragile, and if “we the people” lost faith in ourselves, we could become victims of violent, controlling men. For two centuries, we prospered and didn’t look for the government or a dictator to control us.

We are all spiritual beings, and we are experiencing spiritual warfare! American university students are compassionate but don’t know the difference between good and evil.

We have 350,000 churches and 4,000 synagogues in the U.S., and they need to reach out and demonstrate why biblical teachings and “Love thy Neighbor” are critical for our survival. We must educate youth about the Constitution, why we have “In God we Trust” on our money and etched on our buildings in Washington, and what it will take to keep our freedoms.

Americans are raised to care about all people and accept all religions, but we may not understand the consequences of a belief that inflicts violence toward the infidels. Now, their goal is to conquer the free world after they try to destroy the Jews. Christians and Jews must unite to defeat hate and evil, which can make America stronger and more potent with less violence and more peace for everyone.

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Stephanie Mann co-authored, Alternative to Fear: Guidelines to Safer Neighborhoods,” which helped launch the national “Neighborhood Watch” Program. Within 2 1/2 years, involved residents in her community (17,500 residents) decreased crime 48%, WITHOUT a local police department. Mann worked as a community leader, neighborhood organizer, county coordinator, state consultant and authored, “Safe Homes, Safe Neighborhoods: Stopping Crime Where You Live” (Nolo Press 1993) In 2010, while working in Richmond CA, with “Mother’s Against Senseless Killings,” Mann saw people too scared to be involved or report crimes. She wrote, “The Adopt-A-Block Guidebook,” with an easy-to-follow guide for existing groups and “My first steps to a safe neighborhood” for citizens. These booklets give individuals and groups the tools to reach out and bring people together to help each other. Stephanie started a homeless men’s support group while working with “The Mary Ann Wright Foundation” in Oakland CA. She recognized the need to support children at an early age and wrote, “Street Safe Kids: 10 Step Guide for Teens and Adults” (which has been used in after-school programs) to help youth grow strong from within to develop self-esteem and stay centered. Book available on The Safe Kids Now National website states, “Every child needs a healthy family and neighborhood to stay safe.” In partnership with the CARR Foundation, a binder, “Safe Neighborhoods: Access to a Healthy Community,” was created for city leaders to make neighborhoods safer for families and neighborhoods. Stephanie’s books strengthen families and can decrease the social isolation that fuels bullies, domestic violence, abuse, drugs, gangs, and other destructive behaviors.”

  1. Thank you for publishing my article on why Hamas hates! Here is my story about my experience with Hamas!

    Hamas has governed Palestine for over 15 years. As a Christian family, my son-in-law, a Marine, was escorting an American diplomat into the Gaza Strip to present scholarships to Palestinian students. The middle car, in a 3-car caravan, was blown up, and our Marine was killed. I was shocked to see young children dancing and chanting “God is Great” in Arabic on TV. That was 2003. Those children might be on American campuses today. Have they been taught to hate Freedom? You decide!

    Now that we see young people marching on our streets, we now need to stand with the FREE nation of Israel.
