Islamic Hadith Requires the Genocide of Jews

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
Twice in recent days, Palestinian Authority (PA) religious leaders have openly called for the genocide of Jews. Broadcast on official PA television, two ÒpreachersÓ called for the murder of Jews until the Jewish people are annihilated. Both presented the killing of Jews, not merely as the will of Allah, but also as a necessary stage in history that should now be carried out. To support these mandatory killings, both cited the same Hadith, an Islamic tradition attributed to Mohammed, expressing AllahÕs will. The words of the cited Hadith are as follows: ÒThe Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!Ó Numerous times in recent years Palestinian ÒpreachersÓ and academics have taught publicly that this particular Hadith applies today. This teaching may well be a motivating factor that drives terror against Israelis, because it presents the killing of Jews as a religious obligation, not related to the conflict over borders, but as something inherent to AllahÕs world. It should also be noted that Jews are described in such speeches as Òthe brothers of the monkeys and pigs.Ó PA religious leaders teach, based on a story in the Koran, that Jews were cursed by Allah and turned into monkeys and pigs. This is consistent with the broader PA theme that the Jews have inherent and unchanging character defects. (Gleaned from a local newspaper report, and according to Palestinian Media Watch)
