You’d have to be a mole trapped in a hole to have not heard of Hamas. Hamas is the leading militant Palestinian ‘political’ group, classsief as a terrorist organization by the United States, an acronym Ḥarakat al-Muqāwamat al-Islāmiyyah, meaning “Islamic Resistance Movement”. As I have been studying Habakkuk, I came across the Hebrew Word for Violence “HAMAS”, meaning ”malicious conduct intended to injure another. This word appears a number of times in Habakkuk’s prayer as a description of what he sees AND of the powerful Babylonians who are rising. You can probably understand what I was moved by an article today in the Wall Street Journal, detailing the Chrsitian conversion of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a founder and leader of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas.
