You can support Palestinian people without supporting Hamas

I recently had a conversation with a Muslim colleague who expressed support for Palestine on their WhatsApp profile. Since I believe my colleague doesn’t support terrorist organizations and is a moderate Muslim, I’ve been contemplating how to show solidarity with the Palestinian people while still condemning Hamas.

Supporting the Palestinian people without supporting Hamas can be achieved through various means:

  • Humanitarian Aid: Contribute to reputable humanitarian organizations that provide aid, healthcare, and education to Palestinians in need. These organizations often operate independently of political groups like Hamas.
  • Advocate for Peace: Support efforts for a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through diplomacy, dialogue, and negotiation. Promote peace initiatives and two-state solutions.
  • Educate Yourself and Others: Understand the complexities of the conflict and share information that promotes empathy and a nuanced understanding of the situation.
  • Engage in Dialogue: Engage in conversations and support individuals, groups, or organizations advocating for peace and human rights for all parties involved.
  • Cultural Exchange: Support cultural exchange programs that foster connections between people from different backgrounds.
  • Advocate for Human Rights: Support organizations focused on human rights and equality for Palestinians and Israelis alike.

It’s possible to show solidarity with the Palestinian people without endorsing any specific political group like Hamas.

Hamas is officially designated as a terrorist organization by several countries and international entities, including the United States, Canada, the European Union, and others.
