Video: Hamas tells Arabs: Genocide of Jews still on

While Hamas courts favor internationally, an Arabic sermon on Palestinian TV showed the ruling party continues to call for the genocide of Jews.

Hamas spokesman Ismail Radwan, quoting the hadith – the oral tradition of Muhammad – declared to the Palestinian audience: "The Hour [of Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them, and the rock and the tree will say: "Oh, Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him!"

A video excerpt of the March 30 sermon can be viewed here.

Radwan concluded with a prayer for Allah to "take" Israel and the U.S., reported the Israel-based media monitor Palestinian Media Watch.
