Abbas’ advisor: Jews are Satan in human form

Official PA TV, broadcast of Friday prayers and a sermon by PA Supreme Shari’ah Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash at a mosque in Ramallah

Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “A group from among the People of the Book (i.e., Jews) wants to deceive you… and turn you back from your religion so that you will be like them. This goes back to the initial point of the conflict, the conflict between good and evil...They [Jews] have left the path of humanity and followed Satanity. Satanity is an exit from humanity … Satan does not have to be in the form of a demon, hidden, he can also bein your form, but he is Satan. In the form of man, but he is Satan. And they (i.e., Satan-Jews) are still fighting us until they turn us back from our religion.”

Mahmoud Al-Habbash is Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Religious Affairs and Islamic Relations and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice.

The phrase “turn you back from your religion” is a quote from the Quran 2:99:      
“Many of the People of the Scripture (i.e., Jews) wish they could turn you back to disbelief after you have believed, out of envy from themselves [even] after the truth has become clear to them..”
[Quran 2:99, Sahih International translation]
