Scattering out;Gathering in

A 4000 year-old promise


Scattering out;Gathering in

Genesis 12: 1-3, 7

~ 2000 B.C.

Abram


"Upon the anniversary of the birth of Jesus, Son of Mary, the Word of God, the Messenger of mercy, I would like to congratulate the followers of Abrahamic faiths, especially the followers of Jesus Christ, and the people of Britain.


We believe Jesus Christ will return, together with one of the children of the revered Messenger of Islam and will lead the world to love, brotherhood and justice.

The responsibility of all followers of Christ and Abrahamic faiths is to prepare the way for the fulfillment of this divine promise and the arrival of that joyful, shining and wonderful age.

I hope that the collective will of nations will unite in the not too distant future and with the grace of the Almighty Lord, that shining age will come to rule the earth.”

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, December 25, 2008

The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas)

18 August 1988

Preamble excerpt:

Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it"

(The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).

Article Six:

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) is a distinguished Palestinian movement, whose allegiance is to Allah, and whose way of life is Islam. It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine, for under the wing of Islam followers of all religions can coexist in security and safety where their lives, possessions and rights are concerned. In the absence of Islam, strife will be rife, oppression spreads, evil prevails and schisms and wars will break out.


Article 11 excerpt:

The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Moslem generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up.

Article 13 excerpt:

There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors.


Article 15 excerpt:

It is necessary to instill in the minds of the Moslem generations that the Palestinian problem is a religious problem, and should be dealt with on this basis.

Article 23 excerpt:

The Islamic Resistance Movement views other Islamic movements with respect and appreciation.

“….. A desolate country whose soil

is rich enough, but is given over wholly

a desolation…. we never saw a human being

on the whole route….

hardly a tree or shrub anywhere.

Even the olive tree and the cactus,

those fast friends of a worthless soil,

had almost deserted the country.”
