Israeli Christian says Hamas isn’t just a danger to Jews: ‘Fight of light against darkness’

A Christian and former Israel Defense Forces paratrooper said he believes Hamas is not just a danger to Jews, but also to followers of Jesus.

“We think that this is not a war for only Jews against Hamas,” Shadi Khaloul said. “It’s the fight of light against darkness.”

Hamas launched a surprise invasion on Oct. 7, killing 1,400 Israelis, including civilians. Brutal details have come to light in the following days, showing massacres and beheadings of women and children, with Israeli officials describing signs of torture and abuse.

With the Jewish state preparing to send troops into Gaza as part of its resulting war against Hamas, more than 300,000 IDF reservists of all backgrounds had been called up as of Oct. 9, according to Israel’s chief military spokesperson Rear-Admiral Daniel Hagari.

“Gaza could be today like the Hong Kong of the Middle East if they used this money, foreign money, to build institutions and factories,” Khaloul said. “Foreign companies would come there and invest with them and build a good source of employment for the people.”

“They did the opposite. They took this money to make themselves wealthy, to build weapons, tunnels and military equipment to fight and destroy Israel, only for hatred,” he added.
