Why doesn't the Israeli PR quote the Hamas Charter Article 7, and the Hadith the quote comes from?

Reader comment on item: Reflections on Current Hamas-Israel Hostilities

The real question remains why everyone, the government and the media, refuse to discuss what Hamas sees as their justification in constantly attacking Israel, and clearly expressed in the Hamas Charter itself.

Article 7 of the Hamas Charter reads:

http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/1609.htm

"The hour of judgment shall not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, so that the Jews hide behind trees and stones, and each tree and stone will say: 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him,' except for the Gharqad tree, for it is the tree of the Jews."

Article 7 is taken from Hadith Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177 and quotes the Prophet Muhammad:

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
