  1. Hamas TV: Muslim Mothers ‘Must Nurse Children on Hatred of the Sons of Zion’
    “So that a new generation…will erase them from the face of the Earth.”
    qsa TV (Hamas) broadcast a speech Friday by leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait, Tareq Al-Suwaidan, calling for all Muslim mothers to nurse hatred for Jews in their young children so that the next generation can finally wipe Israel from the Earth.

    Adding that the blood of the dead in Gaza is “dear,” Al-Suwaidan proclaims that martyrdom is the apex of life and in fact, the desired outcome for Muslims — unlike Israelis who prefer life.

    Al-Suwaidan’s diabolical message calls for the eradication of Jews, not just from the Middle East, but “from the face of the Earth.”

    Here is the transcript of the video:

    Without a doubt, the blood being spilled [in Gaza] is dear. But the equation is, “Those killed from our side are in Paradise, and those killed from their side in Hell.” (Hadith)

    We are not afraid of martyrdom. Not long ago, you cried out loud: “Death for Allah is our most exalted wish!” (Muslim Brotherhood slogan) You received the death you wanted. We have no problem with death. We are not like the children of Israel: ‘And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life.’ (Quran) Whereas we yearn for death and martyrdom… Every mother – especially the mothers in Palestine, but every mother in the [Islamic] Nation, not just Palestine – must nurse her children on hatred of the sons of Zion. We hate them and they are our enemies. We will plant this in their [our children’s] souls, so that a new generation will grow among us, which will erase them from the face of the Earth.

    According to Wikipedia, Al-Suwaidan is a millionaire who studied in the U.S., receiving a Bachelor’s of Science in petroleum and natural gas engineering from Penn State and a Masters of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy in petroleum engineering from the University of Tulsa. Forbes Arabia ranks Al-Suwaidan as second in annual net income among Islamic speakers

  2. Bill Maher Defends — Israel?
    “If the situation was reversed, Hamas would kill every single person in Israel.”

    Friday’s Real Time with Bill Maher, Iranian-American guest Reza Aslan questioned the morality of the United States supplying Israel with weapons that in turn get used to target Hamas but inadvertently kill Palestinian civilians.

    Maher defended the allegation and wondered why Israel was the target of all of the criticisms. With the caveat that he knows Israel is “horrible,” Maher asked why there aren’t protests against the countries that are crucifying its own people, or Boko Haram that have killed more people this year than Israel.

    Aslan maintained that Israel is worse because of its use of American weapons. He also denied that Hamas was using its own civilians as human shields, to the ire of the panel.

    Maher jumped in with a full defense of Israel:

    It’s a war. It’s a war that Hamas started and somehow when Israel reacts to this, they have to do everything in a way that doesn’t kill any civilians. People die in wars. Now, I’ve said this before on this show, if the situation was reversed, Hamas would kill every single person in Israel. The reason why that’s not happening is because they can’t. Because they can’t, doesn’t make them good, it makes them weak.

    Aslan got the last word:

    Last time I checked, ‘We’re Better Than Hamas’ is not Israel’s national motto. This idea that somehow because Hamas is a terrorist organization and Israel’s a democracy there is no moral equivalence — you’re absolutely right, there is no moral equivalence. It’s the democracy that requires greater criticism. It’s the democracy that has to live up to the values that it ascribes for itself.
