Kill those attacking your land, honor, or rights, says PA religious leader

Visual: Quran 2:191

Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “Kill them” [Quran 2:191] refers back to the transgressors: “Do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors.” And “kill them” – yes, kill the transgressors. If someone comes to attack me, to attack my home, to attack my land, to attack my homeland, to attack my property, to attack my honor, to attack my family, I am commanded to fight him. I am commanded to confront him, I am commanded to resist him, and I am allowed to kill him if necessary as Prophet [Muhammad] said and as this verse said: “And kill them wherever you find them.” As long as they are attacking, as long as they are fighting, as long as they are targeting your existence, are targeting your rights, and are targeting your souls, you are allowed to fight them, and also to kill them. "

Quran 2:190-191: “Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you but do not transgress. Indeed. Allah does not like transgressors. And kill them wherever you find them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al-Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.”
