Does this debunk the myths about Israel creating Hamas?

Benjamin Netanyahu: he had nothing to do with the creation of Hamas, which happened in 1928, 20 years before Israel was created and before he was born. Hamas wasn’t a puppet of Israel, but Israel used it to create division among Palestinians and make Israel look good to western governments. Now, Netanyahu has discovered that the West supports his Gaza genocide (despite the vehement opposition of those nations’ populations).

Did an Israeli government create Hamas to become a ‘bogeyman’ for its own population – and to present to the international community as a reason Palestinian land should be occupied or walled off, and Palestinian people subjugated?

Maybe not. It always seemed a strange claim to This Writer. In the thread below, Mouin Rabbani examines the evidence.

I’m not saying any of the following is accurate; I’m merely putting it up for discussion. If you have better evidence, then please offer it.

One caveat: if you don’t have evidence, but just feel the need to fling around some pejorative comments, then please take them somewhere else. Let’s try to keep the standard of debate high.

TL:DR: Hamas had its origins long before Israel. After the creation of Israel, that nation favoured Hamas over other organisations as part of a “divide and rule” policy. Benjamin Netanyahu had nothing to do with such actions, though. And now he has discovered that he can simply murder many thousands of Gazans with the full support of western governments, so he’s doing that instead.
