Sure would make sense if true. They seem to play right into the hands of the israelis who use their actions to justify even more bloodshed (assuming
you believe that israel is telling truth).
Of the available sources on this issue, I like the article by Justin Raimondo which he wrote during israel's attack on southern Lebanon back in
Hamas, Son of Israel
“Israel and Hamas may currently be locked in deadly combat, but, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials,
beginning in the late 1970s, Tel Aviv gave direct and indirect financial aid to Hamas over a period of years.
Israel ‘aided Hamas directly – the Israelis wanted to use it as a counterbalance to the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization)...
“In addition to hoping to turn the Palestinian masses away from Arafat and the PLO, the Likud leadership believed they could achieve a workable
alliance with Islamic, anti-Arafat forces that would also extend Israel’s control over the occupied territories.”
For those who dont really trust the "alternative media", here is an article in the Wall
Surveying the wreckage of a neighbor's bungalow hit by a Palestinian rocket, retired Israeli official Avner Cohen traces the missile's
trajectory back to an "enormous, stupid mistake" made 30 years ago.
"Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel's creation," says Mr. Cohen, a Tunisian-born Jew who worked in Gaza for more than two decades.
I would imagine that there are other sources as well.
Not exactly a new phenomenon. Its kind of like the US with Al-CIAeda or ISUS. The latest reports are now claiming that ISUS is being run by a
But why would israel create or help to create Hamas? I mean, doesnt Hamas want to get rid of israel?
Obviously, israel is not going to help a group if they really felt threatened.
One of the premises is that israel wanted a group to counter the growing influence and unity of the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization). But
Well, because the PLO was actually willing to compromise. If the PLO was the "official" representation of the Palestinian people and was willing to
compromise, it meant that israel would have to come to an agreement and it could no longer use Palestinian "provocations and attacks" as an excuse to
take what was left of Palestine.
In this following article, Normal Finkelstein painstakingly and methodically goes thru the history of the "peace process" and makes the case that it
is actually israel which does not want peace.
This article is from 1989 but as far as I can tell, Finkelstein's current view of the situation has not changed:
The Scourge of Palestinian Moderation Peace Process or Peace Panic?
