Blood Libel in Saudi Arabia, World Uninterested (UPDATED)
While the United Church of Canada is clucking on about Israeli “apartheid” and de-Judaizing the Jewish state, here’s a reminder of what Israel faces. From the Middle East Media Research Institute via the Times of Israel:
Salman al-Odeh appeared on one of Saudi Arabia’s Khalijia Channel talk shows Monday and spoke about the Holocaust and the Jews, media watchdog group MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) reported. Although he admitted the Holocaust occurred, al-Odeh charged it had been turned into “a sacred historical event,” “a myth of tremendous proportions,” and “a source for extortion.”
“Through this Holocaust, the Jews began to extort many governments worldwide,” al-Odeh said, claiming that the Jews then perpetrated a holocaust against the Palestinians in Gaza and “the occupied land.”
“The role of the Jews is to wreak destruction, to wage wars, and to practice deception and extortion,” according to the cleric, who charged that Jewish “innate infidelity and deception” brought foreign persecution upon Jews for centuries.
Citing the Talmud and other Jewish holy books, al-Odeh alleged that “Jews believe that they have the right to kill anyone who does not adhere to their religion.”
For his coup de grace, al-Odeh launched into a classic anti-Semitic blood libel, claiming that Jews use human blood to manufacture Passover matza. He posited that Jews eat the human blood matza because “they believe that this brings them closer to their false god, Yahweh.”
Al-Odeh closed with an accusation, reminiscent of the 1928 Massena blood libel and the death of St. Simon of Trent, that Jews would lure children in order to sacrifice them and use their blood for Passover rites.
The Khalijia station is owned by the Rotana Group, which describes it as a “general viewing channel with mostly films, television series and lifestyle programming.”
If you have a strong stomach, you can see the full clip here. The United Church of Canada had no comment.
UPDATE: The UCC also had no comment about these people, reported on by the Jerusalem Post:
The Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah said on Friday it possessed what it called precision rockets that could kill “tens of thousands” of Israelis in strikes on Israel.
“I tell the Israelis that you have a number of targets, not a large number ... that can be hit with precision rockets ... which we have,” Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah said in a broadcast speech. He said he would not identify the targets and did not say whether the rockets were newly acquired weapons.
Nasrallah said his group could strike a limited number of targets in Israel which if hit would lead to mass casualties - a possible reference to Israeli nuclear facilities, though he said he did not spell out what he meant.
Israel, the only Middle East country outside the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), has never confirmed or denied having nuclear weapons.
“Hitting these targets with a small number of rockets will turn ... the lives of hundreds of thousands of Zionists to real hell, and we can talk about tens of thousands of dead,” said Nasrallah.
Earlier Friday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad also delivered a speech at a Tehran rally held in honor of Al-Quds Day, according to Iran’s IRNA news agency.
Ahmadinejad referred to Israel as a western “tool to dominate the Middle East” and an “insult to all humanity.”
“Today, Israel and the Zionist entity are against the preservation of all human rights and human dignity,” IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying at the event.
