Supporting Hamas


October 7th


Impact on the west

In a Nutshell

Pro-Hamas rallies in Europe, Australia, and the US, labeled as pro-Palestinian, have stirred controversy due to Hamas' terrorist designation.

These rallies, which have included extreme rhetoric and antisemitic chants, have raised concerns, especially among Jewish communities. The involvement of liberal individuals, particularly young Americans, is influenced by opposition to Israeli policies and a sense of social justice, often fueled by one-sided narratives on social media platforms like TikTok. A significant portion of young Americans, influenced by emotional manipulation and a lack of in-depth understanding of the conflict, show support for Hamas, not fully recognizing its history of violence and terrorist status. This trend highlights the complex and often conflicting views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the impact of digital media on political opinions.


The Full Story

Full Story

Pro-Hamas rallies across Europe, Australia, and the US have sparked controversy and debate, particularly given Hamas' designation as a terrorist organization by many countries. These rallies, often framed as pro-Palestinian, have seen large gatherings in major cities, calling for ceasefires in Gaza and expressing solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

However, the support for Hamas at these rallies has raised concerns, especially among Jewish communities, due to the group's history of violence and terrorism. In some instances, the rallies have included extreme rhetoric and even antisemitic chants, further polarizing public opinion.

The participation of liberal individuals in these rallies can be attributed to a complex mix of factors, including opposition to Israeli policies, support for Palestinian rights, and a broader critique of global politics. This phenomenon highlights the nuanced and often conflicting perspectives in international discourse on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

​Additionally, there's a trend of young Americans, influenced by social media and peer pressure, supporting Hamas out of a sense of social justice or anti-imperialist sentiment, often without a deep understanding of the complex historical and political context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This phenomenon raises concerns about the impact of digital media on political opinions and the importance of comprehensive education on international conflicts.

The support for Hamas among young Americans, especially within the progressive left, appears to be influenced by a combination of social media exposure, a lack of comprehensive understanding of the facts, and the influence of radical Islam.

According to a Harvard/Harris poll, 51% of Americans in this age group believe Hamas was justified in its actions, reflecting a significant level of support. This support has been attributed to a lack of historical knowledge and susceptibility to emotional manipulation, with some individuals being influenced by pro-Hamas propaganda on social media platforms like TikTok. Platforms like TikTok have been highlighted as tools for spreading narratives that sympathize with Hamas, often presenting a one-sided view of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This exposure can lead to a skewed perception among Gen Z Americans, who may not be fully aware of Hamas' designation as a terrorist organization and its history of violence.

The situation is further complicated by the influence of radical Islam, which can shape perceptions and narratives in a way that supports Hamas.
