Islam's Mandatory War Against Jews In Pa Religious Teaching
The extracts below present one of the darker sides of Islam. It is only fair to mention
that Islam has many facets that to us appear contradictory. In the past some of the stronger supporters of Israel amongst the Muslims were those who ere the most religious.
Also Islam has the concept of acknowledging strength. When the Jews appeared to be more formidable than they apparently do now it was the religious elements who most favored co-operation with them. At present the Jews of Israel appear weak, most of the world is arrayed against us,and the Arabs are smelling blood.
PMW: Islam's Mandatory War Against Jews and Israel in Palestinian Authority religious teaching
Special report # 37
Studies on Palestinian Culture and Society [Study #4]:(July 2, 2001)
by Itamar Marcus, Director
Throughout history religious wars have been fought in the name of different Gods. The premise and basis for discussion of the Oslo Accords was that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was not an irreconcilable religious war, but one over borders. However, the Palestinian religious leaders, all appointees of the PA political leadership, are publicly preaching that the Israel-Palestinian conflict is part of Islam's eternal religious war against the Jews.1
Jews are portrayed as the eternal enemies of Allah, and the killing of Jews as Allah's will. On the national level, Allah prohibits acceptance of Israel's existence and will destroy it.
The Palestinians have redefined the conflict from one over borders, in which compromise may be a solution, into a religious war for Allah's in which compromise is heretical. The implications for future peace are ominous.
This report is not brought as a critique of Islam's religious traditions nor does it claim to represent authentic Islam. Rather it demonstrates the way Palestinian Authority religious leaders are selecting, interpreting and teaching Islam. Although Islam has positive references and traditions regarding Jews, the PA religious leaders have chosen to cite only negative references in their religious teaching, using the traditional sources to justify and even to demand uncompromising hatred of Jews and Israel.
The religious ideology of the Palestinian Authority religious leaders as expressed in the Friday sermons and religious lessons can be summarized by eight essential principles, four regarding the Jews, and four regarding Israel:
1. Jews are the enemy of Allah.
2. Islam is fighting a continuous religious war against the Jews.
..3. The killing of Jews is a religious obligation.
4. Palestinians are the vanguard in this war against the Jews, and all
Islamic nations are obligated to assist in this war.
1. All of the land between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea [which includes all of Israel] is a religious Waqf - an Islamic religious trust. Any Muslim who relinquishes any part to Israel is damned to Hell.
..2. All agreements with Israel are inherently temporary in nature and are signed only because of Israel's temporary balance of power advantage.
..3. Allah will replace Muslims who shirk their obligation to battle Israel.
..4. The ultimate destruction of Israel is a certainty.
The Palestinians repeatedly use Islamic sources to defend this religious hatred, even demanding the killing of Jews as a current obligation and the will of Allah. At least four times in recent months Palestinian religious leaders have taught publicly that the following Hadith (Islamic traditions attributed to Mohammed) is an authoritative directive of Islam today, expressing Allah's will that obedient Muslims kill Jews. The Hadith itself states:
"The Day of Resurrection will not arrive until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: 'Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!'"2
Recently a preacher attacked the Arab-Muslim world leaders because they are avoiding attacking Israel with missiles and tanks, and threatened them that Allah is liable to "replace them with other men... that fight for Allah... to liberate the lands from the defilement of the Jews".3
It is to be stressed that these broadcasts by officially appointed religious leaders, presenting the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as an eternal religious conflict, have been preached long before the current violence began. This preaching it is not a reaction to the present violence, and possibly the opposite is true. The P.A.'s religious world-view, that sees agreements with Israel as inherently temporary and war against the Jews as an expression of Allah's will, has in all likelihood fueled the hatred that has lead to Palestinian terror and violence.
This report presents representative selections from sermons broadcast during recent years:
Part 1. The Eternal Islamic War against the Jews Led by the Palestinians;
the Jews are enemies of Allah
"We the Palestinian nation, our fate from Allah is to be the vanguard in the war against the Jews until the resurrection of the dead, as the prophet Muhammad said: 'The resurrection of the dead will not arrive until you will fight the Jews and kill them... ' We the Palestinians are the vanguard in this undertaking and in this campaign, whether or not we want this..."4
"Blessed is he who fights Jihad in the name of Allah, blessed is he who [goes on] raids in the name of Allah, blessed is he who dons a vest of explosives on himself or on his children and goes in to the depth of the Jews and says: Allahu Akbar, Blessed be Allah. Like the collapse of the building upon the heads of the Jews in their sinful dance-hall, I ask of Allah that we see the Knesset collapsing on the heads of the Jews."5
"The battle with the Jews will surely come... the decisive Muslim victory is coming without a doubt, and the prophet spoke about in more than one Hadith and the Day of resurrection will not come without the victory of the believers [the Muslims] over the descendents of the monkeys and pigs [the Jews] and with their annihilation."6
"The Jews are the Jews. There never was among them a supporter of peace. They are all liars... the true criminals, the Jewish terrorists, that slaughtered our children, that turned our wives into widows and our children into orphans, and desecrated our holy places. They are terrorists. Therefore it is necessary to slaughter them and murder them, according to the words of Allah... it is forbidden to have mercy in your hearts for the Jews in any place and in any land. Make war on them anyplace that you find yourself. Any place that you encounter them - kill them. Kill the Jews and those among the Americans that are like them... The Jews only understand might. Have no mercy on the Jews, murder them everywhere..."7
"...Allah decreed upon us in this lifetime to humiliate the Jews sooner or later..."8
"My dear brothers, so continues the struggle between the Muslims and the Jews from the past, both near and far, in the present and in the future. And in this matter the word of Allah will be fulfilled: (Koran, Sura 5,84)
'There will not be found [anyone] more hostile to the believers than the Jews and the idolaters."9
2. A repeated goal of PA religious teaching is to defame Jews and Jewish tradition:
"...Their Bible [of the Jews] today, has no light and no teachings. Their Bible today, is just a bunch of notes that were written down by people who lie about God, his prophets and his Bible...those who do these kinds of things are the descendants of Abelis, meaning the descendants of the satans...they fabricated a Jewish history book full of promises to Abraham, Issac and Jacob that He will give them the land of Palestine...the entire Bible comes to claim ownership on the land for the Jews."11
3. The Oslo Agreements are Inherently Temporary -Future Generations will Complete the War
"All of the agreements entered into [with Israel] are temporary, until the decree comes from Allah and until the destiny from Allah is realized."19
"...Before long, Palestine will return to the bosom of Islam, we say this with certainty, in accordance with the religious texts... the glorious Islamic nation, to whom is promised victory by Allah..."20
"Who is responsible for the loss of Palestine... and [for] deceitfully labeling it Israel?... The Prophet [Muhammad] soothes us with many Hadiths that Palestine shall return to its former days.... [Later] "We must prepare a foothold, for the coming army of Allah, by divine predetermination. May it be Allah's will, this oppressing state shall pass, Israel shall pass. This oppressing state, America, shall pass, the oppressing state Britain, shall pass, [those] that brought this catastrophe [nakba] of this nation..."21
"How will Palestine return?... Allah will support whom He loves. 'Allah loves whoever battles for him' (Koran, Sura 61,4). Therefore, there is no escape from a Jihad [religious war] for the sake of Allah. As long as this nation shall neglect the commandment of the Jihad, Allah will humiliate her. When will Palestine return? When we impose the law of Allah... Palestine will return when we return to Allah... Palestine will return if we will know who is the enemy and who is the friend, and the games of world Jewry...
3. "Surat al-Jum'a (2)
"...Oh you who are Jews, if you think that you are favored of Allah, to the exclusion of (other) men. Then long for death if you are truthful. But they will never long for it because of the (deeds) their hands have sent before... as for the death from which you flee, that will surely overtake you ..." 30
4. The Destruction of Israel is a Global Islamic Responsibility
"...The Muslims and Arabs must stand behind the Palestinian nation, which is the vanguard in the war against Allah's enemies. By the living Allah, the Jews are Islam's enemies in this life time..."31
"There are Hadiths (Islamic traditions attributed to the prophet Mohammed) regarding our struggle against the Jews. And it is given: "The Day of Resurrection will not arrive until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: 'Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!'
This Hadith clarifies to us the characteristics of the campaign between us and the Jews. The tree and the rock do not say 'Oh, Palestinian', 'Oh Arab', or 'Oh resident of the Middle East'. Rather they say: 'Oh, Moslem, Servant of Allah'"32
