As the western media continue their anti-Israel bias in the coverage of the Middle East conflict, Hamas is not hiding their true intentions and hatred of the Jewish state.
A senior Hamas official called on people to “cut off the heads of Jews” a video.
“People of Jerusalem, we want you to cut off the heads of the Jews with knives,” says Hamas Political Bureau Member and former Minister of the Interior Fathi Hammad saying in Arabic on Al-Aqsa TV. ” With your hand, cut their artery from here. A knife costs five shekels. Buy a knife, sharpen it, put it there, and just cut off [their heads]. It costs just five shekels. With those five shekels, you will humiliate the Jewish state.”
Friday’s video was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
Hammad continued: “You shall find the strongest in enmity towards the believers to be the Jews and the polytheists.’ The Jews have spread corruption and acted with arrogance, and their moment of reckoning has come. The moment of destruction at your hands has arrived.”
“This week’s events are part of a wave of terror led by the terrorist organization Hamas, resulting from reckless and irresponsible incitement to commit violence,” tweeted Dov Hikind, former New York Democratic State Assemblyman and head of Americans Against Antisemitism. “Senior members of the terrorist organization Hamas have made public calls for violence.”
Creative Community for Peace Director Ari Ingel similarly tweeted, “Just in case anyone didn’t think Hamas was behind the violence in Jerusalem, as they also reign down rockets on the city today.”
