Below are excerpts from an interview with Abdallah Jarbu’, Hamas deputy
minister of religious endowments. The interview aired on Al-Aqsa TV on
February 28, 2010.
“The Jews are Foreign Bacteria… The Koran Itself Says That They Have No
Parallel… May He Annihilate This Filthy People”
Abdallah Jarbu’: “[The Jews] suffer from a mental disorder, because they are
thieves and aggressors. A thief or an aggressor, who took property or land,
develops a psychological disorder and pangs of conscience, because he took
something that wasn’t his.
“They want to present themselves to the world as if they have rights, but, in
fact, they are foreign bacteria – a microbe unparalleled in the world. It’s not me
who says this. The Koran itself says that they have no parallel: ‘You shall find
the strongest men in enmity to the believers to be the Jews.’
“May He annihilate this filthy people who have neither religion nor conscience. I
condemn whoever believes in normalizing relations with them, whoever
supports sitting down with them, and whoever believes that they are human
beings. They are not human beings. They are not people. They have no religion,
no conscience, and no moral values.”
