A video on official Hamas TV calls for Allah to kill Jews,
Christians, Communists and their supporters. The video asks Allah to
"count them and kill them to the last one, and don´t leave even
As Palestinian Media Watch has reported this call for the killing of
non-Muslims was a regular pronouncement by both Palestinian Authority
(Fatah) and Hamas political and religious leaders for many years
starting in July 2000
For years, sermons by religious leaders on official Palestinian
Authority TV under Yasser Arafat and Mahmoud Abbas routinely
presented the killing of Jews as a religious obligation and a fulfillment of the Islamic
Due to PMW´s exposure of these sermons, which led to international
criticism and pressure, Mahmoud Abbas, whose office controls PA TV,
has been forced to prevent the broadcast of sermons calling for
extermination of Jews on PA TV.

The following is the transcript of the Hamas video clip:
"Allah, oh our Lord, vanquish
Your enemies, enemies of the religion
[Islam] in all places.
Allah, strike the Jews and their sympathizers,
the Christians and their supporters,
the Communists and their adherents.
Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don´t leave even
