The age-old anti-Semitic blood libel makes yet another appearance to justify Hamas’s targeting of innocent Israeli civilians and threats of a new genocide of the Jews. But the international media is too busy presenting Hamas press releases as news stories to take any notice.
“Top Hamas Official Osama Hamdan: Jews Use Blood for Passover Matzos,” MEMRI, July 28, 2014:
In a recent TV interview, Osama Hamdan, top Hamas representative in Lebanon and a member of the Hamas political bureau, said: “We all remember how the Jews used to slaughter Christians, in order to mix their blood in their holy matzos.”
Following is an excerpt from the interview, which aired on the Lebanese Al-Quds TV channel on July 28, 2014.
Osama Hamdan: The Israelis concentrate on killing children. I believe that this is engraved in the historical Zionist and Jewish mentality, which has become addicted to the killing of women and children.
We all remember how the Jews used to slaughter Christians, in order to mix their blood in their holy matzos. This is not a figment of imagination or something taken from a film. It is a fact, acknowledged by their own books and by historical evidence. It happened everywhere, here and there.
