In an August 31, 2014 TV interview broadcast from Gaza, Palestinian preacher Bahsir Al-‘Ashi said: “The Jews are the enemies of all the nations… The Jews are prepared to sow corruption in the world, and to ignite strife and wars between the nations.” Al-‘Ashi further said: “The killing of children brings joy to the Jews.”
Following are excerpts from the interview, which aired on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV.
Bashir Al-‘Ashi: The people occupying Palestine are the enemies of Mankind. The Jews are not the enemies of the Palestinians alone. If I could, I would say this in English, so that the people of the whole world would understand that the Jews are their enemies.
The Jews are the enemies of the Christians worldwide. They are the enemies of the Americans and of all the nations, not just of Palestine and of the Arab and Islamic nation. The Jews are prepared to sow corruption in the world, and to ignite strife and wars between the nations.
All the nations need to understand that the most important thing for the Jews and their leaders is to appeal to the sentiment of their people by quenching their thirst for sucking the blood of others. This is what happened [in the war].
