Hamas says that it is misunderstood by the world and that the west has the wrong image of the "peaceful non-violent" group:
The exiled political leader of Hamas said Friday the world has the wrong image of the Islamic militant group and he urged the international community to stop viewing it through the eyes of Israel.
"We believe that most of the leaders in Europe, in the West, have ... a wrong image about Hamas, because this image doesn't reflect us. It reflects how some people, especially Israel, see Hamas," Khaled Mashaal told The Associated Press, surrounded by bodyguards on a commercial flight from Ankara to Istanbul.
"We want the world, and especially the countries in the West, to understand us, to understand Hamas well, to understand the will of the Palestinian people, the national goals of Hamas and the Palestinian people."Oh, Ok! I get it now. It's the jews who are lying about you that's giving you a bad image, and not shit like that video for example, where one of your suicide-bombers gives a farewell statement that says that you will drink the blood of the jews, because there is no sweeter blood than their blood! No, that's not it at all! Yeah. Ok! I believe that!
