Attieh calls the Israeli ambassador “that pig, the descendent of apes and pigs.” That is from the Qur’an, which says that Allah transformed disobedient Jews into apes and pigs (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166).
Anyway, note the irony: Westerners who agree with Attieh’s perspective consider themselves to be loving and tolerant, while branding those who oppose this hate-filled bigot as “hateful” and “bigoted.”
“Jordanian MP: I Hate the Jews, I Hate the Jews, I Hate the Jews. They Are Worthy of Hatred,” ” target=”_blank”>MEMRI, November 26, 2014 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
Following are excerpts from a show featuring Jordanian MPs discussing parliament’s moment of silence in memory of terrorists who attacked a Jerusalem Synagogue, which aired on Roya TV on November 26, 2014:
MP Khalil Attieh: By Allah, it is an honor to incite against the Jews. It is a great accomplishment to provoke and incense them. Let us continue with similar decisions, because this is what the Jordanian people want. Our people in Palestine expect us to support them, and to recite Koranic verses for the souls of their martyrs. This is the very least we can do for the sake of those heroes, who defend the honor of the Arab nation.
MP Bassam Al-Manaseer, chairman of the Arab and International Affairs Parliamentary Committee: Are we going to call the French who fought the Nazi occupation “terrorists”? If so, we are all terrorists. If what we did in parliament is considered incitement, just because we stood by the Palestinian people, then we welcome the policy of incitement. I thank brother Khalil Attiah for his heroic position. That is the very least that he can do for our people in Palestine.
MP Khalil Attieh: This position is supported by all.
Moderator: The [Israeli] ambassador said that you use anti-Israel sentiment as a means to serve your own personal interests…
MP Khalil Attieh: As my colleague said, if this is terrorism, we are terrorists. Indeed, I make use of the hatred of the Jews, as all Arabs should, because the Jews respect neither treaties nor human beings. They respect nothing. That accursed ambassador did me a great honor by saying that I hate the Jews. Yes, I hate the Jews. I hate the Jews. I hate the Jews.
What have the Jews ever given us? They do not respect Jordanian custodianship [of the Al-Aqsa Mosque]. They do not respect treaties. They kill our people. They prevent worshippers from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque. They destroy homes and seize control over everything. This is the least we could have done. Thank God that we got them mad.
Hating the Jews is a great honor for me and it makes me walk with my head high, because they are worthy of hatred. They are decent people. Any man of honor should hate the Jews.
[Parliament should debate] the statements of [the Israeli ambassador], that pig, the descendent of apes and pigs, who tried to drive a wedge between the parliament and the king. We should hold a debate, and if the government refuses to expel the Israeli ambassador, we should hand in our vote of no confidence in the government.
