Hamas Video: “We Are A Nation That Drinks Jewish Blood,” Promises To Kill Jews “Until We Have Quenched Our Thirst With Your Blood”
February 24, 2006

Hamas, the Islamist terrorist group that won Palestinian legislative elections last month, recently posted on its official website a video which presents the parting video messages of two Hamas suicide bombers, with one of them stating that “we are a nation that drinks blood” and that Hamas promises to drink the blood of Jews “until we have quenched our thirst with your blood … until you leave the Muslim countries.” The second suicide bomber is seen assisted in dressing by his mother as he prepares himself for a suicide terrorist attack (Hamas website, courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch).

Hamas’ Charter calls for the murder of Jews (Article 7), the destruction of Israel (Article 15) and affirms that it waging a global struggle against Jews who are trying to destroy Islam, citing in support the classic anti-Semitic forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion (Article 32). Since September 2000, Hamas has been responsible for the murder of nearly 500 Israelis and the maiming of thousands more in five years of suicide bombings, drive-by shootings and missile assaults. Other videos recently mounted on the Hamas website includes one that appeared just before the elections and features Hamas leader Khaled Masha’al stating that Hamas will continue with terrorism and work for Israel’s destruction, promising that “the homeland is returning through blood” (Hamas website, courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch).

Excerpt from the message of first suicide bomber from the Hamas video:

  • “… to the loathed Jews is that there is no god but Allah, we will chase you everywhere!”

  • “We are a nation that drinks blood, and we know that there is no blood better than the blood of Jews.”

  • “We will not leave you alone until we have quenched our thirst with your blood, and our children’s thirst with your blood.”

  • “We will not leave until you leave the Muslim countries.”

  • “…we will destroy you, blow you up, take revenge against you, purify the land of you, pigs that have defiled our country… This operation is revenge against the sons of monkeys and pigs.”
    “Jihad is the only way to liberate Palestine — all of Palestine — from the impurity of the Jews.”

ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said, “It is hard to find the words to describe Hamas’ sick propaganda and hatred. This is psychopathic language which simply reflects the hatred and fanaticism of Hamas and their supporters. It is important to note also that Hamas does not call only for Jews in Israel to be murdered, but throughout all ‘Muslim countries.’ This is simply a Nazi-like policy of making the Middle East and other parts of the world Judenrein. It also clearly indicates why there is no prospect of peace while Hamas and movements like it predominate in Palestinian society and why it is necessary for all countries to work to destroy such a movement.”
