It was, is and has always been about the ideology. I received this from Sheik Faarooq Al Mohammedi with this little love note:
In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious and The Most Merciful. But of course.
By Allah we vow never to make a cease fire agreement with the Zionist Colony.
The Global Caliphate of the United Muslim Nations International organization now places its full support behind Hamas with funding and supplies of hitech arms to once and for all defeat the Zionist Apartheid Colony within Palestine. We have arranged an Army of well trained and experienced Mujahideen set for supporting Hamas and the al Quds Brigade, our strong and able men will send the Zionists to hell where they belong.
