For all of the radical left-wingers out there who are hailing Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas as freedom fighters doing battle against evil colonizers, I have something you absolutely need to read. But before we dive in, let me say that anyone who takes this view is attempting to do something that is absolutely impossible. They are trying to remove the religious motivation for these terrorist attacks and the hateful prejudice of Hamas and trying to make this nothing more than politics. That’s a grave error, my friend. The root of the hatred Palestinians have for Jews in Israel is 100 percent religious in nature with very little to do with politics.
According to the Daily Wire, a disgusting, terrifying note was discovered on the body of a dead Hamas terrorist that described Jews as a “disease that has no cure” before going on to instruct militants involved with the organization to chop the heads of Jews and cut out their hearts, all in the name of Allah. As stated, you cannot separate the religious aspects of this conflict from the political side, because, well, that’s really what this is. A religious war.
“An aide gave the note to Israel Defense Forces spokesman Brig. Gen. Daniel Hagari, who said that it was a directive instructing Hamas militants on what to do when they encountered Israelis. He reportedly said the note was taken from the body of one of the Hamas terrorists who was inside the Israeli border,” the report said.
Before @TonyDokoupil’s interview with Daniel Hagari, Israel’s chief military spokesperson, an aide handed Hagari a slip of paper that he claims was taken off the body of a Hamas militant.

‘CBS This Morning’ showed the note that had been handed to Hagari — a small slip of paper covered in Arabic writing, worn around the edges and from being folded inside a plastic bag. A CBS reporter pointed out that they could not fully authenticate the note, but that it appeared to be real,” the Daily Wire continued.
“You must sharpen the blades of your swords and be pure in your intentions before Allah. Know that the enemy is a disease that has no cure, except beheading and removing the hearts and livers. Attack them!” a report from The Jerusalem Post stated in its translation of the note.
Does this sound like the kind of thing a group of oppressed people would say about wanting to remove people from their land and expand their territory politically speaking? No. No, it does not.
CBS gave Hagari the opportunity to respond to the note during the interview, to which he said, “The 7th of October massacre is something that I haven’t seen through my life. This is a war we have to fight. There is only one goal: defeat Hamas. Kill the leaders of terror, and bring out people back home.”
Anchor Tony Dokoupil then asked Hagari what message he would send to the individuals who penned the note and to those who have taken Israelis and folks from other nationalities hostage.
“We have only one country. It’s Israel,” Hagari stated in his response. “It’s our democracy. It’s our country. We’re not going anywhere. We’re going to fight for our country, and we’re going to use all the means we can.”
