Mahmoud Al-Zahar on the Jews

Readers may recall the recent words of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar on the West. We are worse than animals.

Oh well, at least not all of us are Jews. They are corrupt, thieving, and traitorous. They merit nothing but expulsion and Germany has been a model. As the “armed wing” of Hamas reports:

Senior leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement “Hamas” Dr-Mahmoud Al-Zahar says Jews were kicked out by France, Britain, Russia and Germany “because they betrayed, stole and corrupted these countries.”

The Jews will soon be expelled from Palestine that same way they were kicked out by France, Britain, Belgium, Russia and Germany, Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar said over the weekend.

“The only nation that received the Jews after they were expelled was the Islamic nation, which protected them and looked after them,” Zahar said in a speech in Khan Yunis in the southern Gaza Strip over the weekend.

“But they have no place here amongst us because of their crimes. They will soon be expelled from here and we will pray at the Aqsa Mosque [in Jerusalem].”

I trust this news will warm the hearts of Kevin Ovenden, a trustee of the registered British charity Viva Palestina, George Galloway’s Hamas support operation, and his fellows. Here is Mr Ovenden with Zahar and Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh at a Hamas ceremony for the Viva Palestina convoy in Gaza last month.

Here is some more news from Hamas. Labour MPs Jeremy Corbyn and Andy Slaughter have just paid a visit to representatives of the terrorist band:

MPs Jeremy Corbyn and Andrew Slaughter, both members of the Labour Party, met with Palestinian Legislative Council members Muhammad Totah and Ahmad Atoun in the Red Cross headquarters, along with members of the press and peace activist Lubna Masarwa.

The British officials said their visit was intended to express solidarity with the Palestinian people and rejection of Israel’s violation of Palestinians’ human rights.

“Peace activist” Lubna Masarwa is no stranger to Hamas. Here she is with Ismail Haniyeh on another Gaza escapade.

Perhaps Messrs Corbyn and Slaughter can put Zahar’s latest words into “context” for us all when they get back to London.
