Hamas Political Bureau member Fathi Hamad said in a December 12, 2020 interview on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that once the "monstrous" state of Israel is annihilated, all corruption, warmongering, and theft in the world will end. He said that any permanent peace or reconciliation with Israel contradicts Hamas' ideology and agenda, but it is willing to negotiate a temporary truce, like the Prophet MuHamad's Treaty of Hudaybiyyah.
Fathi Hamad: "We are completely convinced that by annihilating the monstrous state [of Israel], we will be bringing an end to the global security corruption of war mongering, the economic corruption of theft, the media corruption of vice... This is the essence of the occupying Zionist enemy. They want to corrupt all of humanity in order to live as a foreign body in the world. So [it] must be annihilated.
"Once the so-called state of Israel is annihilated, the world will heal in terms of economy, security, military, and its relations. The world will open up, and development will flourish in all fields. All the people in the world will see that, Allah willing.
"We do not believe in reconciliation or so-called peace with the Zionist enemy. There can be temporary instances of truce, like the treaty of Hudayabiyyah that was signed by the Prophet Muhammad. But to acknowledge the Zionist enemy's [occupation] of our land and our holy places, is considered haram and constitutes an ideological transgression. Reconciliation with the Zionist enemy can never be a part of Hamas' agenda or ideology. This is out of the question."
