The Covenant Of Hamas Islam Studies
Yes, good questions JB, questions I had to ask myself before opening this discussion. I read through the Palestine vs Israel thread, and didn't see enough discussion on the beliefs and teaching of Hamas to warrant placing this issue there. The closest existing thread I could find would be the Jihad thread, since Jihad is a fundamental teaching of the Hamas, but there is much more to Hamas than Jihad, so I didn't think it would fit there either. As for the discussion fitting into the Studies of Islam board, I would agree with that, but I figured since Hamas is really a political organization, that the discussion of its covenant would go beyond the teachings of Islam. Either way, it can be moved to that board if deemed necessary. I would like to get interpretations from others on the foundation of Hamas, namely its Covenant, and its effect on the geo-political relationships of the region. Hopefully that clears things up a bit.
