Ziad Abu Alhaj, Hamas religious leader, an Imam who recently attended the "Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace", spewed out that Jews are inherently evil. Jews seek to rule the world. Jews are a threat to Muslims and all of humanity. Jews are destined for extermination.
He continued to say that hatred for Muhammad and Islam is in the Jewish soul and they are naturally disposed to it. Therefore, Israel is a cancer that wants to rule the world. Details of the Jews' plan is in "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
The Arabs continue to use this old false resource dreamed up by the Nazis in World War II, and shockingly, the Arab world continues to swallow it. I just hope that the Western world is a little more hep as to its anti-Semitic goal.
This Imam went on to say that the time will come 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.
(Hamas (Al-Aqsa) TV, April 3, 2009.
Isn't this reminiscent of the Arab League's goal in 1948 when they told this same thing to the Arabs living in Palestine to leave as they were attacking and when they finished the ones who left could have the Jews' property? They're still aiming for this after 60 years of trying.
Of course they blame America for the Jews' success when the Imam states that "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" (Senate.)
Where do they get all this nonsense? "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.
What really rankles them is the following: "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.....
I believe this report shows that the Western world cannot expect the Arabs to react like another Western country would. Their thinking is completely different. They don't want to change that pattern of thinking, either. I think that only time will help to erase such thoughts when they have to learn to live with Israel in their midst and see that they're not going to die of a plague, but might even prosper and learn something. It's going to be a tough row to hoe. I pray we have the fortitude.
