  • For years, and particularly since 10/7, we’ve been told, “Hamas doesn’t represent the Palestinian people.” It is a lie.
  • The purpose of this report is to publicly present the evidence that proves this claim is a lie, summarized in a series of infographics.
  • It’s time to drive a stake through the heart of this lie, before Western taxpayers are tricked into subsidizing the creation of a Hamas-ruled terrorist nation.

“Hamas doesn’t represent the Palestinian people.”

We’ve heard this claim made over and over again from government officials, news organizations, “experts” and influencers, in the days and weeks followings Hamas’s October 7, 2023 slaughter, rape and torture of more than 1,200 Jews, and the kidnapping of more than 200 more. Here are a few examples of this claim:

  • February 22, 2024, President Biden: “The overwhelming majority of Palestinians are not Hamas. And Hamas does not represent the Palestinian people.”
  • October 25, 2023, President Biden: “Hamas ‘does not represent the vast majority’ of Palestinians in Gaza.”
  • October 18, 2023, President Biden: “The vast majority of Palestinians are not Hamas. And Hamas does not represent the Palestinian people.”
  • October 18, 2023, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken: “Hamas terrorists do not represent Palestinians.” And on October 22: “And the fact is, Hamas doesn’t represent the Palestinian people.”
  • October 15, 2023, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas: “Hamas’s actions don’t represent Palestinians.”
  • October 10, 2023, Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tipsi Livni: “Hamas is not representing any Palestinian cause.”
  • October 10, 2023, Spanish Foreign Affairs Minister José Manuel Albares: “We cannot confuse Hamas, which is on the list of the EU’s terrorist groups, with the Palestinian population.”

Based on this claim, the US and Western European nations have been:

  • Pouring fortunes of their taxpayers’ money into Palestinian governments and non-governmental organizations
  • Pushing for the creation of a Palestinian nation, once Israel’s defensive actions against Hamas for its 10/7 slaughter come to an end

But is this claim true? Is Hamas just a fringe, ultra-violent, savage exception to mainstream Palestinian society, and its values and objectives?

No, it’s not true.

The reality is that Hamas provably represents the values and objectives of the vast majority of Palestinians, in both the Gaza Strip and the West Bank. As Western leaders and major influencers know, this fact has been determined in repeated surveys conducted by Palestinian research organizations, of Palestinians in both regions, before and after Hamas’s 10/7 slaughter. Furthermore, they know that any democratically-elected Palestinian “government,” for the foreseeable future, will be ruled by Hamas:

  • Overwhelming majorities of Palestinians support Hamas’s 10/7 slaughter-rape-kidnapping of Jews, and believe it was “correct”
  • Most Palestinians support Hamas’s objective to destroy Israel, and reject any notion of a “two-state solution”
  • If a presidential election were held, Hamas’s leader would soundly defeat Fatah’s (Mahmoud Abbas)

The infographic slide show below was created to present the evidence that supports these contentions. See all the data sources at the bottom of the page here.

It’s time to demolish the lie that “Hamas doesn’t represent the Palestinian people,” before the civilized world is tricked into creating a terrorist nation — the “leaders” of which have openly stated it will continue perpetrating 10/7-style murder-rape-kidnapping attacks until Israel is destroyed, and all Jews are dead.
