What is Hamas really looking for with its continual shelling of Israel? One can tell by what the terrorist organization is teaching its people. As this research/translation by Palestinian Media Watch demonstrates, their teachings include killing all Jews.
During the eight-day military conflict between Hamas and Israel, Hamas broadcast various ideological messages on its official Al-Aqsa TV station. One recurring message called for the killing of Jews, which Hamas defined as a religious Islamic act in worship of Allah. During one music video, these words were shown on the screen:
"Killing Jews is worshipAnother song on Hamas TV also bragged about killing Jews in a series of short phrases highlighting the achievements of Hamas' Al-Qassam Brigades:
that draws us close to Allah"
The following are additional lyrics from the video which boasted of "terrifying the Jews" and glorified Hamas' military wing, the Al-Qassam Brigades:
"[Oh] lovers of the trigger:
Killing the occupiers [Israelis] is worship that Allah made into law...
Arabic text on sign: 'Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah'
Arise, oh determined men. The color of [the Martyr's] blood protects the land.
Oh masked one wearing a keffiyeh (i.e., Arab head scarf), terrifying the Jews... call out in Zionism's face: 'Muhammad's army has begun to return.'"
"Brigades - we kidnap soldiers, Brigades - we kill Jews"This song also had an Islamic aspect as it called for liberating the land for Islam:
While the song was broadcast in Arabic, Hebrew words appeared on the screen addressing Israelis, while pictures of Israelis being attacked and of an Israeli funeral were shown:
"Your body parts are scattered everywhere"
"The cemeteries await you"
"Destroy the usurper's dens and set fire to the oppressorsEven the ceasefire and the cessation of hostilities did not end the Hamas hate promotion. The day after Hamas signed a ceasefire agreement with Israel, the same Islamic ideology was broadcast in a different music video:
Through training and preparations, you roar, oh lion of Qassam [Brigades]
It's in your hands to get [our] country back
and then we will raise the banner of Islam."
"Repeat in the name of your Jihad: Death to Israel!"
While showing footage of explosions and Hamas fighters firing rockets, this song called to "destroy" Israel - "the house of absolute evil" and "the enemies of humanity."
Hamas calling to kill Jews is not new. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that both Hamas and the PA in the past have called for killing Jews.
PMW has also documented that both Hamas and the PA describe theconflict with Israel in religious terms as a war for Allah and not merely a territorial conflict.
In addition to the song in Arabic, Hebrew words appeared on screen addressing Israelis as pictures of Israelis being attacked and of a funeral were shown:

With its constant barrage of TV hate, Hamas is raising the next generation of terrorists. There will never be peace as long as one side teaches hate. Or as Golda Meir is attributed with saying, "There won't be peace until the Arabs realize they love their children more than they hate our children.""Destroy the throne of Zion,the house of absolute evil...Raise the banner of victoryBe like the fire of a volcano...Repeat in the nameof your Jihad: Death to Israel! ...With blood and fire,resist until freedomDefeat the soldiers of aggression,the enemies of humanity."[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Nov. 22, 2012]
