October 7, 2023

The Council of Muslims Against Antisemitism and its Board strongly condemn the murderous attack on Israel and its civilian population by the terrorist organization Hamas backed by Iran.

Here are prominent Muslim leaders debunking the Islamist ideology and recognizing the truth:

Today we are all Israelis!

Dr. Zuhdi Jasser
Founder and President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy

“This attack and escalation by Hamas is reminiscent of al-Qaeda’s attacks on 9/11 in its damage and proportional deaths/injuries. At a time when the region states are either at peace or negotiating peace, it is a deliberate tactic employed by Hamas and its backers to delegitimize peace and derail ongoing negotiations. We must not let the terrorists win!”

Haras Rafiq
Senior Research Fellow at ISGAP and Trustee of Muslims Against Antisemitism UK

“I strongly condemn these heinous crimes by Hamas against Israel. This was a war against Israel. It is time for the international community to stand with Israel and stop Hamas aggression for good

Noor Dahri
Executive Director, Islamic Theology of Counter Terrorism (UK)

“Iran-backed Palestinian terrorists launched an invasion against our ally Israel committing ghastly war crimes. They are celebrating their slaughter in Gaza and The West Bank. We must fully support Israel’s right to defend itself and stand strong on the front lines against terrorism. This is a time for choosing not fence-sitting. I stand unequivocally with Israel.”

Dahlia al Aqidi
Iraqi-American journalist

As the details of the atrocities committed by Hamas are unfolding, we find that Hamas acted no differently in their brutality than ISIS.

Why has Hamas launched thousands of missiles from Gaza at millions of Israeli civilians?

The Council of Muslims Against Antisemitism:

“Hamas is an overtly genocidal antisemitic terrorist entity which has launched over 4000 missiles from Gaza at Israel’s civilian population centres over the last few days. Hamas has used its own Palestinian civilian population in Gaza as human shields to protect itself from retaliation. CMAA condemns Hamas unequivocally.”

For those considering or actively legitimizing or justifying this terrorist assault from Gaza on millions of civilians and the use of human shields, here is what you need to know about Hamas:

“The Jew-hatred that characterizes Islamic Jihadism is not about Zionism or the Jewish presence in the Middle East; it is about the Jewish presence in the world.”

Professor David Patterson, “A Genealogy of Evil”, Page 3

Hamas Speaks for Itself:

Founding Charter of Hamas: Jews are the root of historical evil

“… With their money, they took control of the world media.… With their money they stirred revolutions in various parts of the globe… They stood behind the French Revolution, the Communist Revolution and most of the revolutions we hear about… With their money they formed secret organizations – such as the Freemasons, Rotary Clubs and the Lions – which are spreading around the world, in order to destroy societies and carry out Zionist interests.… They stood behind World War I … and formed the League of Nations through which they could rule the world. They were behind World War II, through which they made huge financial gains.… There is no war going on anywhere without them having their finger in it.” 

Hamas Charter, Article 22

“Extermination of Jews is good for the world” 

“… Everyone will know that we did this only because our Lord commanded so, “I did it not of my own accord” [Quran] and so that people will know that the extermination of Jews is good for the inhabitants of the worlds ….” 

Al-Rissala (Hamas weekly), April 23, 2007

“Don’t leave even one”

“Strike the Jews and the Christians, count them, kill them…and don’t leave even one.”

Hamas TV December 2010

“No Jew or Zionist will be left on the face of this earth”

 “… We, the Muslims, know the nature of Jews the best, because the Holy Quran taught us… “…The Jews set down their plan to besiege the entire world by land, by air, and by sea – conceptually, economically, and its communications, as is happening today… The time will come, by the will of Allah, when their property will be destroyed and their children will be exterminated, and no Jew or Zionist will be left on the face of this earth.”

Al-Aqsa (Hamas) TV, April 3, 2009

Hamas Charter: “A Jew is hiding behind me … come and kill him”

“The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews: until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!”

Hamas Charter, Article 7

Palestinian cleric: “Quran sentences Jews to extermination” 

“The Meccan [Quran] chapter entitled ‘Jews’ or ‘Children of Israel’ is remarkable… It’s about today’s Jews, those of our century, and only speaks of extermination and digging graves. This chapter sentences the Jews to extermination before a single Jew existed on earth.”

Palestinian cleric: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 13, 2008

Younis Astal, MP: Jews to face yet another Holocaust: 

“Suffering by Fire is Jews’ destiny in this world and next.” “… you will taste the punishment of Scorching Fire.” [Quran 3:181] “This [Quran] verse threatens the Jews with the punishment of Fire… the reason for the punishment of Fire is it is fitting retribution for what they have done… but the urgent question is, is it possible that they will have the punishment of Fire in this world, before the great punishment [of Fire in Hell]? …many of the [Islamic] religious leaders believe that the [Jews’] punishment of Fire is in this world, before the next world… Therefore, we are sure that the Holocaust is still to come upon the Jews.”

Beheading Jews: “It only costs 5 shekels” (May 7, 2021)

“People of Jerusalem, we want you to cut off the heads of the Jews with knives. With your hand, cut their artery from here. A knife costs five shekels.  Buy a knife, sharpen it, put it there, and just cut off [their heads]. It costs just five shekels…. The Jews have spread corruption and acted with arrogance, and their moment of reckoning has come. The moment of destruction at your hands has arrived.”
