On October 7th, a day when Jews around the world celebrated the giving of the Torah, a deeply tragic and horrifying event unfolded in Israel. Hamas, a terrorist organization, committed an atrocity by ruthlessly taking the lives of over 1,000 innocent Jewish civilians. Their actions were accompanied by chilling chants of "Allah Akbar" (Our God is greater), further adding to the heinous nature of their crimes.
This merciless act spared no one, as it targeted children, women, and the elderly. The victims endured unimaginable suffering, enduring rape, mutilation, and torture, all carried out in the name of Allah. It's a grim reminder of the extremist ideology driving an organization that was founded with the sole purpose of eliminating the Jewish state.
Hamas' Charter, specifically Article 28, articulates its position that Israel, due to its Jewish identity and population, is seen as a challenge to Islam and the Muslim world. This tragic event serves as a stark example of the hatred and violence fueled by such extremist beliefs, emphasizing the urgent need for peace and understanding in this troubled region.
