It turns out Hamas was the National Forces all along!

30 Nisan 2024 Salı

In light of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's visit to Turkey, Erdoğan, reminding of AKP's stance on the Palestinian cause, stated, "No one is qualified or capable enough to question my personal sensitivity or that of this team towards Palestine. What the National Forces were, Hamas is that," thereby deeming it necessary to elevate and favor Hamas.

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh also thanked AKP Chairman Erdoğan for the pass: "President Erdoğan's stance has made us very happy, honored. Saying in the Grand National Assembly that Hamas is the National Forces is a great honor for us, and the people of Palestine have received this happily. He is right; we are a people trying to protect our sanctities. Gaza holds a very important place in Turkey, we know and feel this well."

I dislike comparing countries, peoples, and actions to one another, it is incorrect: The National Forces are not the 1789 French People’s Revolution, nor is Hamas the National Forces. Simply put, the lands where Hamas is established were the lands of the state of Judah, where the Palestinians also lived during the Old Testament (Torah) times, and was known as Judea during the New Testament (Bible) times. But I do not want to mix in historical confusion here, as it is a can of worms.

"No one is qualified or capable enough to question my personal sensitivity or that of this team towards Palestine. What the National Forces were, Hamas is that!"

We neither believed nor affirmed the truth of the words of the chairman of AKP! The chairman of AKP and his followers lack both caliber and capacity. At the very least, could he not send a message to Netanyahu saying "Hey"? Let's assume he said it and Netanyahu didn’t respond... This is like singing in the bathhouse for both parties!

Someone who says "What the National Forces were, Hamas is that!" indicates that they do not understand the National Forces, do not know what it represents. The National Forces was an anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, populist, patriotic, and egalitarian rebellion. There is almost no religious insurrection or impulse. Because the invader's purpose is not religious, it is worldly. In short, the National Forces established a contemporary, democratic, and most importantly, secular Republic. For Hamas to be the National Forces, it would have to adopt its goals and objectives, which is not the case! On the contrary, there is a Salafist, political Islamist ideology, an Arab Nationalist ummah ideology that is the archenemy of the nationalistic and secular National Forces!

Hamas, in Arabic, means "enthusiasm, zeal"; it is a partial acronym for the Islamic Resistance Movement; a Palestinian Islamist and nationalist movement consisting of a political wing and an armed wing, the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades. Since June 2007, following its victory in the 2006 parliamentary elections and a brief civil war which led to the overthrow of the Palestinian Authority and absence of elections, Hamas has solely governed the Gaza Strip, primarily active in this area. Hamas is classified as a terrorist organization by nearly 30 Western countries, including the United States, Canada, the European Union (including France), the United Kingdom, Australia, and Japan. Most UN member states, including China and Russia, do not consider Hamas a terrorist organization. And its most important feature is being the enemy of the secular organization, the Palestine Liberation Organization.

Iran is Hamas' primary material and spiritual supporter... Tehran provides significant logistical, military, and financial support through the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Qatar also provides funding and has hosted the political office head of the movement, Ismail Haniyeh, as well as the movement's former leader, Khaled Mashal, on its territory since 2012.

Does anyone know why Hamas attacked Israel in 2023? Following the attack, it entered into an open war against Israel, which oddly legitimizes Israel’s ground assault against the Gaza Strip.

There is no justifiable reason for the AKP chairman’s support of the reckless war initiated by Hamas, but it is not surprising to us.

However, the Republic does not permit equating the renegade and terrorist Hamas with the Sacred National Forces! The one embracing Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, President Joe Biden would certainly not invite him to the USA. I do not know about the relevant parties, but Turkey's honor is being compromised.
