What They're Saying About The Jews

"The Jews are the cancer spreading all over the world... the Jews are a virus like AIDS hitting humankind... Jews are responsible for all wars and conflicts.... Do not ask what Germany did to the Jews but what the Jews did to Germany. True, the Germans killed and burned Jews but the Jews exaggerate the numbers to gain propaganda advantages and sympathy…"
Sheikh Ibrahim Mudairis, May 13, 2005, Gaza

The Simon Wiesenthal Center has called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to dismiss the head of Palestinian Television over the airing of a live sermon from a Gaza Mosque delivered by Sheikh Ibrahim Mudairis which was filled with antisemitic attacks and denials of the Holocaust.

During the sermon, in the presence of uniformed Palestinian Authority police, the Sheik also asserted that God has predetermined that the Jewish problem will be solved with the extermination of the Jews, and that God has also predetermined that Christian-Islam interactions will end with today's Christian countries under Islam.

I thought we only had them in America.. ;-)

What in HELL does a so-called religious person think is right about so much hate and ignorance?

Well shit, if we're spreading like a virus, how come I haven't got any kickbacks? What the hell is going on here? I expect a percentage dammit!

Remember, this comes from a representative of a people who are largely disdained by all of their neighbors. All they share in common with their Arab neighbors is their anti-semitism. Their lot in life is not the fault of the Jews. It's because no one in their region has an interest in helping them.

It's just more convenient for them to blame someone else. Huh, I guess that makes them kinda like republicans. Interesting.

Rags, reading your comment makes me a little sick to the stomach...they are disdained by the neighbouring Arab countries? Why? exactly? because they oh so stupidly chose to live in an area previously known as Israel? The fact that their homes are bulldozed by Israeli (jewish) soldiers, is not the fault of the Jews? Remember this man wasn't just speaking for Palestinians, he was there to represent many Moslems who shared his similar fundamentalist views, the extremists...are all palestinians extremists? the women? the children? I'm not taking sides here at all, and although I perhaps havent expressed my views particularily intelligently to you all (maybe I could go write a whole ESSAY on the matter??!)I feel Rags commentwas also unintelligently put, and, I JUST HAD TO SAY SOMETHING!!!

Merovingian, please point out to me where I say all Palestinians are extremists. In fact, I'll make it simpler for you: please point out to me where I used the word "extremist" at all.

It's interesting to see you react so emotionally to my statement. Just curious, what's your reaction to Sheikh Ibrahim's statement? What do you suppose your reaction would be if you were a Jew?

At least you met your goal to "say something."
