"We and the Zionists have a date with destiny."
That was the comment of Khalad Mashal, the chief of Hamas' politburo.
Mashal is the most senior political leader within Hamas.
"Being in power is only a means to an end for Hamas."
"Power is not our ultimate goal."
"If it becomes one, let power go to hell. It will not hold us back from our targets which we hold dear."
It is their raison d'etre. To think otherwise is to be deceived.
And it will all start with Japan.
