Above is the link to the Yale University Avalon Project which archives many interesting documents. Reading the still active Hamas Covenant of 1988 is more than instructive. A great number of Muslims have the same views as in that Covenant. Basically Arafat and the Palestinians support those views. Note that the Covenant contains numerous quotes from the Koran the Sura and verse of which is given in parentheses.
