Hamas spokesman Osama Hamdan Monday refused to deny that Jews use the blood of Christians – the ancient “blood libel” – to make Passover matzahs.
This is what Israel is dealing with. And this is also, unfortunately, who Secretary of State John Kerry wants to deal with.
Hamdan appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer:
BLITZER: You said, we all remember how the Jews used to slaughter Christians in order to mix their blood with their holy matzohs . . . Is that — is that your belief, Mr. Hamdan?
HAMDAN: Well, Wolf, let me answer that freely. Don’t cut me, because it’s very, very, very important to be clarified . . . I’ve said in the same — in the same occasion, that we don’t have a problem with the Jews as Palestinians and as Muslims, we don’t have problems with Jews. The Jews lives in the Arab region.
BLITZER: I just want to be specific and just answer the question. And maybe I’ll remind you what you said.
HAMDAN: You have — you have to ask that for the church which claims that, you know,” Hamdan responded. “This is the fact. You cut the words — not you, the Israelis. And memory, they cut the facts and they start this propaganda to say that they are innocent. They want to cover the genocide which is happening in Gaza now.
BLITZER: I was hoping to get a flat denial from you that you would utter such a — such, you know, ridiculous words that Jews would kill Christians in order to use their blood—
HAMDAN: Wolf, Wolf, you have — Wolf, you have to be fair. You can’t end that. I must end that, because you asked me and I want to answer. This was said by everyone. I was saying they — they are part of what was being said. He has to deny what he write about the Palestinians, about the genocide against the Palestinians, which he called for, which he suggested to.
