Hamas encouraged by its end-time views

The eschatological view of Islam motivates Hamas fighters in Gaza, is what Damanhuri bin Abas from Singapore argues. In that view of the endtime, Muhammad's main opponents, the Jews, figure large. Interesting reading, and in a sense very much the mirror of certain Christian eschatological views that make them support Israel through thick and thin. I am glad that the realities in life are a bit more complicated: even though certain Muslims and Christians hold endtime views in which Israel plays a major role, I am glad that most of them do not live up to those religious beliefs. Phew...

Okay, Mr Damahuri speaks:
Muhammad s.a.w. said in a hadith that the Al-Masih Al-Dajjal (The False Messiah) will appear as the King of the Banu Israil at the end times and lead them to what will eventually be their final punishment from God al-Mighty for a people that continuously rebelled against Him and killed the Prophets that were sent to them. The recent events this past week in Palestine again remind us of that future foretold by the Prophet, which also frighteningly describes an accurate picture of the condition of Muslims in the world today.

For the Palestinians facing the bombardment of the Israeli army, the statement of the final Prophet gives a powerful hope for justice. It promises the suffering that the people of Palestine is facing may merely be another chapter to end the fate of a rebellious people, and through which a tremendous reminder will be given to all mankind of their gross disbelieve in God and to ultimately return their servitude to the One God, Allah swt. The Prophetic description of the upcoming event to take place in the land of the Anbiya features a prominent role for the Banu Israil, who will be misled by the ultimate deception that they self-create due to their own wish-fool believe in the coming messiah whom they insist has not arrived for them.

Their arrogance to reject Isa Al-Masih (Jesus, the true Messiah) is what seals their own fate as they have for all the years held on to a false believe that the Messiah has not come. And that believe has shaped all the efforts and actions that led the Banu Israil to the land that will witness their final punishment from Allah at the hand of the real Messiah, Isa Al-Masih who will return to fulfill the prophecy of Rasulullah s.a.w. He, Isa (Jesus, the true Messiah) will kill the King of the Jew, Al-Dajjal (the False Messiah), and with that the false system of life championed by them will be destroyed by Isa who will rule the land in peace. Dajjal will be supported by the army of Ya’juj wa Ma’juj who originated from eastern Europe and today can be symbolically described as the forces that supported and brought the Jewish people back to Palestine into the country they now call Israel. Their destruction will be in the hand of God al-Mighty.
