As Hamas seeks international recognition by softening its tone in English, in
Arabic it continues the calls for genocide of Jews. In a recent sermon on PA
TV, Hamas spokesman Dr. Ismail Radwan made it clear that the classical Hamas
ideology had not changed, including its continued incorporation of extremist
Islamic beliefs into Hamas ideology and policy. He reiterated:
1. The Hour of the Islamic Resurrection and End of Times is literally dependent

The following is the text of the Hamas spokesman’s call for genocide of Jews,
the Hamas spokesman, Dr. Ismail Radwan, on Palestinian Authority TV, on March 30, 2007:

the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: Oh, Muslim, servant

It will not be liberated through negotiations, but through the rifle, since
this occupation knows no language but the language of force.
O Allah, strengthen Islam and Muslims, and bring victory to your
Jihad-fighting worshipers, in Palestine and everywhere.
Allah take the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!
