“Extremist” Islamic beliefs? Really?
Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.” (Bukhari, Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177)
By Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook for Palestinian Media Watch:
As Hamas seeks international recognition by softening its tone in English, in Arabic it continues the calls for genocide of Jews. In a recent sermon on PA TV, Hamas spokesman Dr. Ismail Radwan made it clear that the classical Hamas ideology had not changed, including its continued incorporation of extremist Islamic beliefs into Hamas ideology and policy. He reiterated:
1. The Hour — the Islamic Resurrection and End of Time– is literally dependent on the killing of Jews by Muslims.
2. The remaining Jews will unsuccessfully attempt to hide, as the rocks and trees will expose them, calling out “there is a Jew behind me, kill him!”
3. “Palestine”¦ will be liberated through the rifle,” a euphemism meaning that Israel will be destroyed through violence.
The Hamas spokesman ended with prayers to Allah to “take” Israel and the USA.
The following is the text of the Hamas spokesman’s call for genocide of Jews:
The Hamas spokesman, Dr. Ismail Radwan, PA TV, March 30, 2007 –
The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: “Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!”
We must remind our Arab and Muslim nation, its leaders and people, its scholars and students, remind them that Palestine and the Al Aqsa mosque will not be liberated through summits nor by international resolutions, but it will be liberated through the rifle. It will not be liberated through negotiations, but through the rifle, since this occupation knows no language but the language of force”¦ O Allah, strengthen Islam and Muslims, and bring victory to your Jihad-fighting worshipers, in Palestine and everywhere”¦ Allah take the oppressor Jews and Americans and their supporters!
