Are Hamas Freedom Fighters?

Many on the left view Hamas as a national liberation movement. According to Daniel Ben-Ami there is "no excuse for their ignorance about Hamas’s genocidal aims".

According to Daniel Ben-Ami's article This is not about ‘liberating’ Palestine, Hamas's objectives are not the liberation of Palestine, but the elimination of Israel and establishment of an Islamic caliphate.

The Council on Foreign Relations also provides a useful background on What is Hamas?
