A Hamas cleric who once participated in an international conference of
“Imams and Rabbis for Peace” — whose delegates vowed to “condemn any
negative representation” of each other’s religions — has wholeheartedly
espoused Hamas’s racist ideology in a recent Friday sermon on Hamas TV.
This imam, who is preaching the genocide of Jews, participated in the
Second World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace in 2006, which also
featured many prominent rabbis from Israel. The final statement from the Seville
conference included the pronouncement, “. . . We condemn any negative
representation of these , let alone any
desecration, Heaven forbid. Similarly, we condemn any incitement against a
faith or people, let alone any call for their elimination, and we urge authorities
to do likewise.”
According to the Hamas interpretation of Islam, the Jews are inherently
evil, seek to rule the world, and are a threat to Muslims and all of humanity.
Therefore they are destined to extermination. In the words of Hamas religious
leader Ziad Abu Alhaj, “Hatred for Muhammad and Islam is in their
souls, they are naturally disposed to it…”
He asserts that because of the Jews’ inherent evil, the Jewish state,
“Israel … is a cancer that wants to rule the world.” One can find the details of
the Jews’ plan in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, which he jokingly refers
to as “The Protocols of the Imbeciles of Zion” (a play on words in Arabic). He
concludes that the Jews are destined to be annihilated:

The following is the text of the Hamas sermon calling for the extermination of Jews:
“Who is it that is leading the world today in the vicious, all-encompassing war
against Islam and Muslims? The answer is clear: it is the Jewish nation. It is the
Jews who today are leading the all-encompassing war against Muslims…
We, the Muslims, know the nature of Jews the best, because the Holy Quran
taught us. The prophetic traditions explained at length to Muslims the true
nature of Jews… Their war and their hatred for Muhammad and Islam is in their
souls, they are naturally disposed to it.
Israel today lives in the heart of Arab-Muslim territory, and it is a cancer that
wants to rule the world. Know, my brothers! The Jews’ expansion today brings
the dissemination of an ancient thinking…
They argued with Allah’s prophet Moses; they wanted to kill Allah’s prophet
Jesus, and wanted to murder Allah’s prophet Muhammad…
The Jews want to destroy every inch … Perhaps their famous book, which they
deny – known as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, but we
call it, “The Protocols of the imbeciles of Zion” – in this book, my brothers, the
Jews set down their plan to besiege the entire world by land, by air, and by sea
– conceptually, economically, and its communications, as is happening today…
The Jews’ grandeur today, and their ascent to the world’s throne, is because
America, with all of its power, is ruled by the Senate, I won’t say ‘American’
but rather ‘Jewish’ … The time will come, by the will of Allah, when
their property will be destroyed and their children will be exterminated, and no
Jew or Zionist will be left on the face of this earth.”
