Soros called out the then-Bush regime for "committing a blunder in the Middle East by supporting the Israeli government in its refusal to recognize a Palestinian unity government that includes Hamas," claiming this blunder "precludes any progress towards a peace settlement at a time when such progress could help avert conflagration in the greater Middle East.
Recognizing that Hamas was created by Israeli and U.S. intelligence services back in the 1970s for just this purpose, Soros and others intended for Hamas to be the driver in making Israel a more multi-cultural society that does not wall off the Palestinians and other groups from its society.

Soros' op-ed was published at a time when Fatah and Hamas were engaged in a bloody conflict that had begun in 2006. This led to the infamous Battle of Gaza in 2007 that resulted in a complete Hamas takeover of the Gaza Strip and the dissolution of the unity government that had been established by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Putting two and two together, the governments of Israel and the U.S. appear to have established Hamas back in the 1970s for the explicit purpose of radicalizing the Gaza Strip. Now that the operation is complete with Hamas attacking Israel over the weekend in the biggest bloodbath, we are told, since the Holocaust, the melee is functioning as a pretext for Israel to wage full-scale war against its neighbors in what is fast-becoming World War III.
Soros is behind some of the funding for groups like Al-Shabaka, which reportedly celebrated the recent Hamas attack. Between 2017 and 2021 alone, Soros funded Al-Shabaka with $550,000.
In a statement, Al-Shabaka said that "breaching" the "boundaries" of Israel's borders in this way "expands the Palestinian imaginary for possibilities of both resistance and collective freedom."
Historian Victor Davis Hanson says that ever since Hamas was "elected" to run Gaza using a "one election, one time" formula, "it has bragged nonstop that its agenda was to erase Israel off the face of the earth."
Toronto Sun editor emeritus Lorrie Goldstein also claims that Hamas "doesn't want peace; it wants Israel," adding that Hamas "never wanted peace with what it calls 'the Zionist entity.'"
The founding charter for Hamas, which was officially established in 1988, states that it is futile to even try to negotiate with Israel about becoming multicultural because the Jewish state itself will not allow it.
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it," the charter stipulates. In other words, the explicit goal of Hamas is to eradicate Israel as it currently exists.
In his 2007 op-ed, Soros attacked both Israel and the U.S. as they were respectively being run at that time for refusing to do business with the Palestinian government because its coalition included Hamas.
"Both Israel and the U.S. seem frozen in their unwillingness to negotiate with a Palestinian Authority that includes Hamas," Soros wrote. "The sticking-point is Hamas's unwillingness to recognize the existence of Israel, but that could be made a condition for an eventual settlement rather than a precondition for negotiations.
