Suspicious Relationship Between Israel and Hamas… Facts and Testimonies

Critiquing the role of Hamas and its leader in Gaza, Yahya Sinwar, Palestinian National Council member Osama Al-Ali accused them of serving Israel and working for its benefit, stating that Israel formed Hamas and protected Sinwar from assassination. Al-Ali labeled Sinwar as “Israel’s biggest friend” and its “gift from heaven.”

Israel and Hamas... a Suspicious Relationship Dating Back Decades

Suspicions regarding the relationship between Israel and Hamas date back to the early stages of the group’s formation and development in the 1970s and 1980s.

Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was one of the most vocal skeptics of this relationship, accusing Hamas of being an Israeli creation. In an old video, he was seen meeting with some Egyptian military personnel, stating, “Israel created Hamas to fight the Palestine Liberation Organization.”

Mubarak wasn’t alone in levying this accusation. Ron Paul, a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and presidential candidate in 1988, stated in 2009 from within Congress, “If you go back in time, you’ll see that Israel supported and contributed to the establishment of Hamas, to counter Yasser Arafat.”

Similarly, former minister and member of the Palestinian delegation to the secret Oslo negotiations in 1993, Hassan Asfour, stated in September 2023 on BBC, “Hamas was launched with the agreement of some Arab countries and Israel as part of an American project, to serve as an alternative parallel to the Palestine Liberation Organization.”

Serving Israel

On his part, Osama Al-Ali, a member of the Palestinian National Council, stated that Israel did not attempt to assassinate Sinwar despite knowing his whereabouts and activities, according to a report published by the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, revealing that the Shin Bet (Israeli internal security service) requested government approval to target Sinwar five times between 2000 and 2011, but Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refused.

Al-Ali added that Israel created Hamas in the 1980s based on advice from former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who wanted to use the Muslim Brotherhood in the West Bank to confront the Palestine Liberation Organization, and that Israel communicated with Hamas through Israeli liaison officers.

Al-Ali accused Hamas of serving Israel and working for its benefit, pointing out that Hamas separated the West Bank from Gaza and killed 800 Palestinians, that Israel provided it with weapons and money, and that Hamas acted to execute agreements with Israel without the consent of any other Palestinian party.

Al-Ali asserted that all wars waged by Israel against Gaza were suspicious and targeted civilians rather than Hamas, that Israel sent money to pay salaries to those who fired rockets at Israel, and that he had evidence to support this.

Al-Ali concluded by stating that he knew the borders between Gaza and Israel very well, and that nothing could enter or exit Gaza without Israel’s knowledge, adding that there was an Israeli plan to take control of Gaza on October 7.
