Statements maligning the Jewish religion and the Jews as the enemy of Allah are common within the Palestinian Authority. A prominent official from the Palestinian Legislative Council recently attacked Judaism saying, “it is a faith that is based on murder: 'I kill, therefore I am.'” The Hamas representative, Dr. Yussuf Al-Sharafi, further says that Israel will cease to exist “through blood and Shahids [martyrs].”
This past week Dr. Ahmad Bahar, acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council said that the Jews were a "cancerous lump” and prayed to Allah for the genocide of Jews and Americans with them: "...count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one."
A similar attack on Judaism by Bahar that was broadcast on PA TV last year included the libel that the “false Talmud, [the] false Torah, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion call for the murder of children, women and men."
Below are the 3 Hamas statements attacking Jews and Judaism:
"The representative of the Legislative Council, Dr. Yussuf Al-Sharafi, of the 'Change and Reform' faction [Hamas], emphasized the option of Jihad and resistance to banish the thieves of the occupation, who longed to drink the blood of our massacred people... because the Jewish faith does not wish for peace nor stability, since it is a faith that is based on murder: 'I kill, therefore I am'… Israel is based only on blood and murder in order to exist, and it will disappear, with Allah’s will, through blood and Shahids [martyrs]."

Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Bahar (acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council): “This is Islam, that was ahead of its time with regards to human rights in the treatment of prisoners, but our people was afflicted by the cancerous lump, that is the Jews, in the heart of the Arab nation… Be certain that America is on its way to disappear, America is wallowing [in blood] today in Iraq and Afghanistan, America is defeated and Israel is defeated, and was defeated in Lebanon and Palestine… Make us victorious over the infidel people… Allah, take hold of the Jews and their allies, Allah, take hold of the Americans and their allies… Allah, count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one.”

Sheikh Dr. Ahmad Bahar (acting Speaker of the Palestinian Legislative Council):
“Oh warrior brothers, who stay put and withstand the [patience] test on the land of beloved Palestine. Do you know these Zionists, why they kill the children, the women and the men? This is the policy of the Zionist entity, this is a planned and organized policy. Their false Talmud, their false Torah, and the Protocols of the Elders of Zion call for the murder of children, women and men, and they want to implement them [the books] on the land of Palestine and Lebanon of today.”
