Hamas are a terrorist organisation. Why are you propagating their murderous message? Who does this address - "slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out;"? Please be specific.
I might remind you that Hamas is one of the groups banned by the UK Terrorism Act 2000. You may be risking prosecution under Section 12 of the Act by propagating this call to arms by a proscribed terrorist organisation.
