Palestinian Mufti Uses 'Kill The Jews' Islamic Hadith At Moderate Fatah Celebration

People are under the false impression that Fatah - PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' political party-  is a moderate one, and I suppose in comparison to Hamas (Palestine's other major party) it is.  But we must never forget that no matter how moderate Fatah might seem on the surface, most Palestinians want Israel out of the picture, Hamas and its supporters are just more obvious about their intentions.  Yes, in 2010 Fatah removed from its charter the paragraph referencing its desire to wipe Israel off the map, whereas Hamas has not, but that doesn't necessarily mean Fatah wants to coexist with Israelis. Far from it.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW)  just posted a recent video that aired on PA TV (see below) of the head Mufti Muhammad Hussein speaking at a celebration of the 47th anniversary of Fatah where he urged Muslims to kill the Jews by quoting from a popular Sahih Muslim Hadith 6985:

"The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews.
The Jew will hide behind stones or trees.
Then the stones or trees will call:
'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'"

According to PMW, during the 2000-2006 Intifada this particular Hadith was commonly used on PA TV as a motivating tool for generating more violence, but not so much in recent years.  The last time was in 2010, but it's obviously still very relevant in Islamic teachings today with 73% of the Palestinian population believing it, as per a 2011 Israel Project poll. 

Apparently not all Hadiths are accepted:

There are numerous collections of Hadith, some of which are not accepted as reliable. However, the Mufti stressed that the Islamic belief that Jews will be killed by Muslims as a precursor to Resurrection, is an authentic Islamic belief because it appears in "the reliable" and trusted Hadith collections of Al-Bukhari and Muslim.

This Islamic tradition asserts that as the killing of Jews will progress, Jews will hide behind stones and trees, but even they will expose the Jews and call out: "Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him." One tree however, called the Gharqad, will hide the Jews from the Muslims. The Mufti in his talk at the Fatah event claimed that in response to this Islamic belief, Israelis have been planting Gharqad trees around their cities and towns, in order to have a place to hide from the Muslims who will be coming to kill them.
And it's not as if Abbas is unaware of Sheikh Hussein's preachings, since Abbas is the one who appointed Hussein.

It's quite obvious that regardless of what they say to the contrary, it's not just about Israel and ant-Zionism, it's about the Jews.  And the promotion of this Hadith proves it without a doubt.

Transcript:

Moderator at Fatah ceremony:
"Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews)
is a war of religion and faith.
Long Live Fatah! [I invite you,] our honorable Sheikh."


PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein comes to the podium and says:
"47 years ago the [Fatah] revolution started. Which revolution? The modern revolution of the Palestinian people's history. In fact, Palestine in its entirety is a revolution, since [Caliph] Umar came [to conquer Jerusalem, 637 CE], and continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith (tradition attributed to Muhammad), [found] in the two reliable collections, Bukhari and Muslim, says:
"The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews.
The Jew will hide behind stones or trees.
Then the stones or trees will call:
'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'
Except the Gharqad tree [which will keep silent]."
Therefore it is no wonder that you see Gharqad [trees]
surrounding the [Israeli] settlements and colonies.."

The Jews, while heavily outnumbered, beat the crap out of the Muslims during the Six Day War. I, personally, believe that the Jews had some divine help then, and will again. These Muslims are IDIOTS and simply will not learn what history teaches.

@CWW: They have been able to take care of themselves, for the most part, when we don't tie their hands behind their backs. and I think you are right. Good will always prevail.
