A Hamas-affiliated imam in Gaza said the group will “exterminate” Jews, and launched an anti-Semitic diatribe in a sermon broadcast on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV station.
A video of the sermon, made available on Tuesday by the Middle East Media Research Institute, shows the cleric speaking last week at a mosque in Dir al-Balah in the central Gaza Strip.
“”Our doctrine in fighting you (the Jews) is that we will totally exterminate you,” he says. “We will not leave a single one of you alive, because you are alien usurpers of the land and eternal mercenaries.”
“Research the history, my brothers. Wherever the Jews lived, they spread corruption,” he cries out.
“Oh Muslims, didn’t you notice that Allah said: ‘They spread in THE land…’ The definite article in ‘THE land’ means the entire land. ‘They spread in the land corruption, and Allah loves not the corrupters.'”
