During a parliamentary session in Gaza, Hamas Parliament member and cleric Yunis Al-Astal recited at length quotes from the Koran, vilifying the Jews.

“We do not have time to list their abominations, which merited their transformation into apes and pigs,” he added, saying that due to these faults, Jewish scholars were described as “dogs,” and the simple people were described as “donkeys.”

Al-Astal further said that Allah has gathered “those corrupters” in Palestine in order “to annihilate their corruption at the hands of His servants of great might,” and ended with a recommendation to produce a generation of “servants of Allah with great might.”

The Gaza parliamentary session aired on Al-Quds TV (Lebanon).
