First Hamas came for the Jews, the Christians and the Communists.

8 Dec 2010 by CST

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) carries footage and a transcript from a video of 3 December 2010, shown on the official Hamas run television channel, Al Aqsa TV

PMW describe it as a "sermon" and provide the following translation

Allah, oh our Lord, vanquish Your enemies, enemies of the religion [Islam] in all places.
Allah, strike the Jews and their sympathizers,
the Christians and their supporters,
the Communists and their adherents.
Allah, count them and kill them to the last one, and don't leave even one.

The video, with PMW's translation, can be seen here. It is only 42 seconds long. The word "Yahud" is Arabic for "Jew" and can be clearly heard at about 22 seconds in.

I confess to not knowing the Arabic for either "Christian" or "Communist", nor for "sympathisers", "supporters" and "adherents". Nevertheless, it is about time Christians and (especially) Communists and their "supporters" and "adherents" acknowledge the existence of such incitement, what it means to Jews - and what it ought to mean to the political alliance here in the UK, between a supposed anti-war left, and the many Islamists who openly support Hamas and seek to dominate Britain's diverse Muslim communities.

“"The Guardian of Israel doesn't slumber or sleep". This feeling of safety and security that we search for and need is gratefully appreciated when it's given to us by the CST. It really is a pleasure to work with the CST and to be looked after and cared for by them. Where ever I go throughout Britain, in all our Synagogues from north to south the impact and help given by the CST is warmly valued.”
