Hamas was created by Israeli and US intelligence services to counteract Yasser Arafat, Ron Paul explains
By Ethan Huff // Oct 12, 2023

The recent terror attack on Israel by Hamas is a senseless tragedy that we can already see is going to have lasting repercussions on world affairs, especially in the Middle East. Why, then, did the United States and Israel itself create Hamas back in the 1970s?

Before Hamas was what it is today, it was just a fringe group of Palestinian Muslims with no real power. Today, Hamas rules Gaza with an iron fist, and all because of the U.S. and Israel, according to former congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Former Israeli officials like Brig. Gen. Yitzhak Segev, who served in the Israeli military in the 1980s, fully admit to this. Segev told a New York Times reporter that he helped finance the Palestinian Islamist movement as a "counterweight" to the secularists and leftists of the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Fatah party, which was led by Yasser Arafat.

Arafat himself famously referred to Hamas as "a creature of Israel," and Segev agrees, having taken money from the Israeli government to create this terrorist group in the first place.

"The Israeli government gave me a budget," Segev confessed about what happened. "And the military government gives to the mosques."

Former Israeli religious affairs official Avner Cohen, who worked in Gaza for more than 20 years, told the Wall Street Journal back in 2009 that he, too, played a direct role in the creation of Hamas.

"Hamas, to my great regret, is Israel's creation," Cohen is quoted as saying.

(Related: Ron Paul has always been rejected from Big Politics for his unpopular, but oftentimes correct, viewpoints that contradict the established order of things.)

Israel and the U.S. are the biggest funders, creators and exporters of terror worldwide

Back in the mid-1980s, Cohen wrote an official report to his superiors warning them not to deploy this divide-and-conquer plot in the Occupied Territories, which as we can now see is being used as an excuse for Israel to go in and basically gut Gaza.

"I suggest focusing our efforts on finding ways to break up this monster before this reality jumps in our face," Cohen wrote in his letter.

Cohen was ignored, of course. And now, decades later, Hamas has become a scapegoat for Israel to wage full-scale war on not just the Palestinians living in Gaza, but also the big dog: Iran.

"Hamas was encouraged and really started by Israel and the United States to counteract Yasser Arafat," Paul stated in a congressional testimony from a while back that you can watch below:

None of this is really all that shocking when considering the U.S., which has long acted as Israel's military arm, is notorious for funding and sparking the creation of new terrorist groups that are then used to destabilize nations as a pretext for more war.

"Many of the terrorist groups currently in existence have been influenced or supported in some way by the United States," Revolver explains.

"This often happens when the U.S. is involved in funding wars or supporting certain groups labeled as 'rebels.' As time passes, these same 'rebels' we once supported often become our sworn enemies, perpetuating the cycle of endless forever wars."
