Hamas Charter (1988) Part 1
Knowing the Movement
Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors.
Article Two: The Link between Hamas and the Association of Muslim Brothers
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a world organization, the largest Islamic Movement in the modern era. It is characterized by a profound understanding, by precise notions and by a complete comprehensiveness of all concepts of Islam in all domains of life: views and beliefs, politics and economics, education and society, jurisprudence and rule, indoctrination and teaching, the arts and publications, the hidden and the evident, and all the other domains of life.
Article Five: Dimensions of Time and Space of the Hamas
As the Movement adopts Islam as its way of life, its time dimension extends back as far as the birth of the Islamic Message and of the Righteous Ancestor. ITS ULTIMATE GOAL IS ISLAM, THE PROPHET ITS MODEL, THE QU’RAN ITS CONSTITUTION.
ITS SPECIAL DIMENSION EXTENDS WHEREVER ON EARTH THERE ARE MUSLIMS, WHO ADOPT ISLAM AS THEIR WAY OF LIFE; thus, it penetrates to the deepest reaches of the LAND and to the highest spheres of Heavens.
