Hamas issued a video for Ramadan, with religious and spiritual imagery and music juxtaposed with terrorism activities like tunnel building and rocket deployment.



On the Qassam Brigades website, they wrote that "Ramadan is the month of jihad, fortification and victory over the enemy."

The importance of honor and shame comes through from this sentence: "Jihad for the sake of Allah is the pinnacle of Islam, and it allows one to gain honor in this world and the hereafter; it is one of the best tasks and acts of worship, and Muslims are only humiliated when they abandon the jihad."

Hamas also announced their summer camps to train teenagers in the finer arts of jihad, starting June 10. They are asked to register at the nearest mosque belonging to the al-Qassam Brigades.

The announcement states that "the camps will include training and military skills, shooting ammunition, the skills of civil defense, as well as sermons...the aim of these camps to ignite the flame of jihad for the liberation generation."

The video and articles make clear that when they say "jihad" they don't mean the peaceful, inner jihad that Muslims love to tell Westerners is the more important one. Hamas (and, indeed, Islam) does not distinguish between the military, political and religious aspects of jihad. Which is why apologists will never condemn Hamas' interpretation of jihad as wrong. (They'll condemn IS, but that's only because they attack other Muslims, not because they are against violence - and their silence on Hamas using Islam to justify its violence is the proof.)
