A senior Hamas official went on an anti-Semitic rant and blamed the Jews for centuries of persecution, which he alleged was the result of their own corruption.

The Hamas terror organization claims it is not anti-Semitic and does not hate Jews but, rather, the State of Israel.

However, if you listen to what the Hamas’ leadership has to say, its virulent anti-Semitic nature is undeniable.

Senior Hamas official Mahmoud Al-Zahar, for example, gave a long list of examples throughout history of Jews being banished from the European countries where they had lived, allegedly as a result of their “corruption.”

Many governments and other bodies accept Hamas as a legitimate defender of the Palestinians’ rights. How can they?
