Hamas political leader and designated terrorist Fathi Hammad called on Palestinians in Jerusalem on Friday to buy cheap knives in order to behead Jews.
Meanwhile, Democrats continue to cozy up to the Gaza terror group while condemning Israel for responding to attacks against it and calling to end or condition aid to the Jewish state.
“People of Jerusalem, we want you to cut off the heads of the Jews with knives,” he said, clarifying to “cut their [carotid] artery” as he demonstrated doing so with his hand.
The Hamas leader then bragged that the act could be accomplished with little cost.
“Buy a knife, sharpen it, put it here [against the neck], and just cut off [their heads],” he said. “It costs just five shekels [roughly $1.50].”
“With those five shekels you will humiliate the Jewish state,” he added.
Explicitly noting that “Jews” are the enemy, and not merely “Israelis” or “Zionists” – which have become euphemisms to avoid charges of antisemitism, Hammad quoted the Islamic Quran in claiming that Jews are most hostile.
“You shall find the strongest in enmity towards the believers to be the Jews and the polytheists,” he said.
Hammad added that Jews are guilty of other evils and that their demise is at hand.
“The Jews have spread corruption and have acted with arrogance, and their moment of reckoning has come,” he said. “The moment of [their] destruction at your hands has arrived.”
In July 2019, Hammad urged the millions of Palestinians worldwide to kill Jews wherever they are.
“Oh, you seven million Palestinians abroad, enough warming up!” he said. “There are Jews everywhere! We must attack every Jew on planet earth. We must slaughter and kill them, with Allah’s help.”
Many viewed the rhetoric from Hamas as perfectly in line with the terror group’s regular stances.
“If you want to understand why 30 years after Oslo [Peace Accords] and 16 years after Israel’s complete withdrawal from Gaza there still isn’t peace, this here is a good starting point,” wrote Daniel Schwammenthal, director of the AJC Transatlantic Institute (TAI).
“This is what Hamas (who is funded by Iran) does every single day,” wrote Bryan Leib, the executive director of Iranian Americans for Liberty. “They incite violence and encourage their supporters to murder Jews.”
“Hamas is not a government. They are a terrorist organization,” he added.
