IDF Highlights Hamas Spokesman Video Calling for Anyone With a Weapon to ‘Kill Zionists’ (VIDEO)
Palestinians living in the West Bank must use all means at their disposal to kill Jews and Zionists if they wish to be considered part of the Palestinian people, Hamas spokesperson Fawzi Barhoum says in a video highlighted by the IDF on Monday via Twitter.
“Anyone who has a knife, a club, a weapon, or a car, yet does not use it to run over a Jew or a settler, and does not use it to kill dozens of Zionists, does not belong to Palestine,” Barhoum said. “Palestine says loud and clear: real men are those who avenge the blood of Gaza… Real men will not sleep until they have avenged the blood of Gaza.”
The clip, which was first published and translated by media watchdog MEMRI four months ago, begins with Barhoum declaring that he wants to relay a message “loud and clear to our people in the West Bank.” He then proceeds to ask Palestinians why they do not use their possessions to attack Jews.
“Don’t you have cars? Don’t you have motorcycles? Don’t you have knives? Don’t you have clubs? Don’t you have bulldozers? Don’t you have trucks?” he asks.
To those living within the Green Line, Barhoum announces that it is time for them to declare “a new phase in this struggle.” He says, “Political and social considerations are worthless. Blood and martyrdom are the only considerations that matter. Palestinians have no choice but to wage this battle in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Jerusalem and in all the cities of occupied Palestine.”
