The Qassam Museum in Sderot, Israel displays one type of object: the Qassam rockets that Palestinians have fired into Israel. There are thousands of them. Since June, 2007 Hamas has governed Gaza, and is directly responsible for firing all those Qassam rockets into Israel. Rows of shelves piled high with the rusted, mangled hulls of crude rockets and mortars fired from the Gaza Strip. 

Hamas’ 1988 charter calls for replacing the State of Israel with a Palestinian Islamic state in the area that is now Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip. Hamas does not recognize the right of Israel to exist. In 2008, the Sderot Qassam Museum served as the backdrop for Sen. Barack Obama to sound an unequivocal message: Israel must be allowed to defend itself.
