Subject: Support Israel not PLO call for extermination of Jews!(VIPAC)
Dear Mr. President:
On September 14 the Palestinian Media Watch published the following:
Twice in three days PA religious leaders have openly called for the
genocide of Jews. Broadcast on official PA TV both called for the murder
of Jews until the Jewish people are annihilated. Both presented the
killing of Jews not merely as the will of Allah but also as a necessary
stage in history that should be carried out now. To support these
mandatory killings both cited the same Hadith - Islamic tradition
attributed to Mohammed - expressing Allah?s will that Muslims will kill
Jews before the ?Hour? of Resurrection.
The words of the Hadith:
"The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the
Jews and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree and
the rock and tree will say: oh Muslim oh servant of Allah this is a Jew
behind me come and kill him!"
Numerous times in recent years Palestinian religious leaders and academics
have taught publicly that this particular Hadith applies today. This
teaching may well be a dominant motivating factor that drives terror
against Israeli civilians because it presents the killing of Jews as a
religious obligation not related to the conflict over borders but as
something inherent to Allah?s world.
Why does your administration continue to send over 200 million dollars
each year to the Palestinian Terror Authority when they use the funds to
officially spread such calls for genocide against the Jewish people?
