Hamas leader: Death to all Jews and Americans

"Sheik" Ahmad Bahr, a pretty important Hamas "official," delivered a sermon earlier this month on Al-Aqsa TV, the terrorist group's television agitprop network:

“Oh, Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters," said the oppressed Palestinian. The alleged entity known as "Allah" should also destroy "the Americans and their supporters," he croaked.

“Oh, Allah, count them one by one, and kill them all, without leaving a single one.”

Somebody call Juan Cole for a linguistic analysis of how this isn't really a call for the extermination of two entire peoples.

The robed terrorist also said the following:

"If the enemy sets foot on a single square inch of Islamic land, Jihad becomes an individual duty incumbent upon every Muslim, male or female,” Bahr also said. “A woman doesn’t need permission from her husband, nor a servant his master’s permission,” in order to engage in jihad. This, Bahr said, is “in order to annihilate those Jews.”

It seems that, for the Palestinians, gender equity has only been reached in the area of mass murder. This, the Middle Eastern studies academics might say, must surely be called "progress."
