Let me be clear when we say Israel created Hamas, it was through arming them via intelligence (Mossad and Shin Bet). Israel didn't create Hamas' nationalism, or their religious beliefs. They just gave them arms originally to fight with the PLO because the PLO, at the time, had enough support to force Israel into peace negotiations. Had Hamas not come into play, the Palestinians could have had a state by the early 1990s. But nope, then the Intifadas came with Hamas soon after. None of this justifies killing a few hundred Palestinians in the name of "self defense" of course. But we can't ignore the roots of Hamas which didn't benefit the Palestinian people at all. And Hamas firing rockets really doesn't do shit but give the Israelis an excuse to continue killing them. We all know the rockets rarely do any damage and hardly kill a lot of Israelis. The killing ratio is well over 100:1 at this point.
What people keep forgetting out west is that Hamas, like Hezbollah has a military wing and a political wing. They also have a television station that Israel bombed twice this past week and they have charity groups, hospitals, police stations, etc. They cater to the Palestinians like a social group. You could compare it to the Oathkeepers or some other American militia group out here. They aren't some monolithic bunch of retards just firing rockets and screaming about how great Allah is like the controlled media out here wants you to believe.
