There are many people who are just repeating the deceptive and misleading Zionist propaganda that has been the stock-in-trade of the Israeli rulers against Hamas that it wants the destruction of Israel?
In reality, Hamas is not the threat; it is Israel that has been a constant threat and aggressor since 1948. Hamas is a freedom-seeking organisation. It stands for the end of the Zionist occupation that has lasted for so long but sees no end of it in sight. It asks for an end to further Israeli expansion in the occupied land.
Just take a look at the map of the West Bank and see what has happened there since 1967. Practically hundreds of illegal settlements have been established and extreme fanatic settlers put in there who constantly terrorise the Palestinians still living there.
Now Israel has started a new war, a new slaughter in the Gaza Strip with a view to destroy any resistance to its occupation by Hamas. It is Israel that is destroying all those who challenge its occupation.
