  • Hamas was founded in 1987 during the first Palestinian intifada, a popular uprising against the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. [1][4][5]

  • Hamas was established by Palestinian Islamists, including Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, who believed in armed resistance against Israel as a means of restoring Palestinian support for the Muslim Brotherhood movement, which was losing ground to other Palestinian factions. [1][4]

  • The creation of Hamas was facilitated by the Israeli government, which had previously helped build up the Palestinian Islamist movement as a "counterweight" to the secular and leftist Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO). Israeli officials admitted to providing funding and resources to the mosques and Islamic centers that laid the groundwork for Hamas. [2][3]

  • This support for the Islamist movement was part of a divide-and-rule strategy by Israel, which hoped the Islamists would undermine the PLO's secular nationalist agenda. However, this backfired, as Hamas eventually emerged as a much more militant and violent adversary to Israel than the PLO. [3]

So in summary, while the immediate trigger for Hamas's founding was the first intifada, the group's origins can be traced to earlier Israeli policies that inadvertently empowered the Islamist movement as a way to weaken the secular Palestinian nationalist movement. The search results indicate that Hamas arose in part due to this history of Israeli aggression and interference in Palestinian politics. [1][2][3][4][5]

Based on the search results provided, it is clear that there are credible allegations and evidence that Israel has committed war crimes and other serious violations of international law in its conflict with Hamas and the Palestinian population. The key points are:

  • Multiple international bodies, human rights organizations, and UN experts have accused Israel of committing war crimes, crimes against humanity, and even genocide in the occupied Palestinian territories. This includes the International Criminal Court, which has an active investigation into Israeli actions. [1][3][4]

  • Alleged war crimes by Israel include intentional targeting of civilians, use of disproportionate force, collective punishment, destruction of civilian infrastructure, torture, and impeding humanitarian aid - actions that violate the Geneva Conventions and other international laws. [1][3][4][5]

  • Specific incidents cited as potential war crimes include the 2008-2009 Gaza war, the 2006 Lebanon war, and the more recent 2023-2024 conflict, where there is evidence of massacres, indiscriminate attacks, and the deliberate starvation of the civilian population in Gaza. [1][3][4][5]

  • While the sources acknowledge that Hamas has also committed war crimes, such as targeting Israeli civilians, this does not absolve Israel of its own violations and obligations under international law. [2]

Given the extensive documentation and condemnation from reputable international organizations, it does appear that there is a strong case that Israel has indeed committed war crimes and other serious abuses against Palestinians. The evidence presented in the search results supports the view that this is not simply a matter of differing political perspectives, but rather well-substantiated allegations of egregious violations of human rights and humanitarian law by the Israeli state and military.

What are some of the dirt-cheapest food you can buy that will yield the most proteins? by TheBlackSun in Food

[–]thehomelessromantic 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Legumes are an excellent source of plant-based protein for several reasons:

Legumes are high in protein. A single cup of cooked beans, lentils, or peas contains around 15 grams of protein[2], which is nearly a quarter of the daily protein requirement for an average adult. This makes legumes one of the most protein-dense plant foods.

Legumes contain all the essential amino acids. While they are considered "incomplete" proteins because they lack sufficient amounts of certain amino acids like methionine and cystine, this can be easily remedied by combining legumes with other incomplete proteins like grains[1]. This complementary pairing creates a complete protein profile.

Legumes are a sustainable protein source. When legume plants die, the nitrogen in their amino acids is released back into the soil, serving as a natural fertilizer for future crops[5]. This makes legumes an environmentally-friendly protein compared to animal-based sources.

Legumes provide additional health benefits. Beyond just protein, legumes are rich in fiber, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals[2][3][4]. Studies show that regularly consuming legumes can help lower cholesterol, control blood sugar, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

In summary, legumes are an optimal plant-based protein due to their high protein content, complete amino acid profile when combined with other foods, sustainability, and additional nutritional benefits[1][2][3][4][5].
