Hamas TV: Every Muslim mother "must nurse her children on hatred of the sons of Zion"


Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood leader:

Every Muslim mother

"must nurse her children on hatred 

of the sons of Zion... so a new generation...

will erase them from the face of the earth"


And to Gazans:

"You received the death you wanted...

We are not like the children of Israel, 

who strive to stay alive...

we yearn for death and Martyrdom."

 A Muslim Brotherhood leader in Kuwait, Tareq Al-Suwaidan, said Muslims "hate" the sons of Zion. He called for Muslim mothers to nurse their infants on this hatred and to plant it in Muslim children's "souls," so that the new generation "will erase them [sons of Zion] from the face of the earth." Last week, Palestinian Media Watchdocumented a similar Hamas sermon calling for the extermination of Jews.


The Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood speaker also reiterated the Muslim Brotherhood belief that death for Allah - Shahada (Martyrdom) - is the loftiest goal a Muslim can achieve. Turning to residents of Gaza he said:

"Death for Allah is the highest wish...

you received the death you wanted."


This speech, which was originally broadcast on July 14th on Sarmad TV (Kuwait), was rebroadcast by Hamas two days ago on Al-Aqsa TV. Hamas defines itself as "one of the wings of Moslem Brotherhood..." [Hamas Charter, Article 2]


Tareq Al-Suwaidan, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait:

"Without a doubt, the blood being spilled [in Gaza] is dear. But the equation is: 'Those killed from our side are in Paradise, and those killed from their side in Hell.' (Hadith)

We are not afraid of Martyrdom. Not long ago, you cried out loud: 'Death for Allah is our most exalted wish!' (Muslim Brotherhood slogan, -Ed.) You received the death you wanted. We have no problem with death. We are not like the children of Israel: 'And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life.' (Quran) Whereas we yearn for death and Martyrdom... Every mother - especially the mothers in Palestine, but every mother in the [Islamic] Nation, not just Palestine - must nurse her children on hatred of the sons of Zion. We hate them and they are our enemies. We will plant this in their [our children’s] souls, so that a new generation will grow among us, which will erase them from the face of the earth."

PMW documented two weeks ago that Hamas TV defended the deaths it brought on its population, saying that Gaza civilians were privileged to have died in the conflict as Martyrs, since their date of death was in any case predetermined - "their time had come."


Hamas also broadcast last week the words of two Hamas leaders saying death is greater than life:

Hamas leader Muhammad Deif: "We love death like our enemies love life!" 

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh: "[Hamas] loves death for Allah like you [Israelis] love life."
