Speaker at rally says “Allah’s promise is ‎real” – Muslims’ destiny is to kill the ‎Jews

‎     “The refugee camps of our Palestinian ‎people in Lebanon were filled today, ‎Friday, with processions and mass rallies ‎marking the 32nd anniversary of the Sabra ‎and Shatila massacre. ‎A mass procession set out from the Shatila ‎refugee camp in the direction of the ‎Martyrs’ (Shahids’) cemetery near the ‎camp, attended by representatives of the ‎Palestinian factions, the institutions of ‎Lebanese and Palestinian civil society and ‎several Martyrs’ families…‎
Kazem Al-Hasan, the Fatah Secretary in ‎the Shatila refugee camp, said: ‘The ‎occupation perpetrated this massacre in ‎the area of Sabra and Shatila in order to ‎tell the world, “we are above international ‎law, and despite the protection offered by ‎the multi-national forces, they are all on ‎our side against the Palestinian people ‎and the resistance.”’ He continued: ‘The ‎Israeli occupation came to the region of the ‎Lebanese resistance in order to tell them, ‎‎“we will punish you for having stood ‎beside the Palestinian people.”’…‎
Sheikh Fuad Abd Al-Latif gave a speech in ‎which he said: ‘Victory is on the way, Allah ‎willing, because Allah the exalted ‎promised it to us. Allah’s promise is real, ‎and He told us in His Book: “And ‎incumbent upon Us was support of the ‎believers.” (Quran, Sura 30:47, translation ‎Shahih International) Meaning, the victory ‎of the believers will arrive, Allah willing, ‎when he will grant speech to the trees and ‎stones, so they will be able to say, “O ‎Muslim, come. There is a Jew behind me, ‎come and kill him.”’ (verse from the “stone ‎and tree” Hadith, see below).”‎

Note: The story of a stone or tree beckoning a ‎Muslim to kill a Jew appears in numerous ‎Islamic texts. One example is the following ‎Hadith from the Sahih Muslim book of Hadith: ‎‎“Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger ‎‎(Peace be upon Him) as saying: ‘The last hour ‎will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews ‎and kill them until the Jews hide behind a stone ‎or a tree, and the stone or a tree will say: ‎‎“Muslim, or servant of Allah, there is a Jew ‎behind me; come and kill him”; but the Gharqad ‎tree will not say [this], for it is the tree of the ‎Jews.’”‎

Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee ‎camps in Lebanon. In 1982, during the first ‎Lebanon War, Muslim residents of the ‎camps were massacred by Christian ‎Phalangists. The PA has a longstanding ‎policy of falsely accusing Israel of ‎committing the massacre or actively ‎helping to carry it out. are Palestinian ‎refugee camps in Lebanon.
