Muslim speaking of Gaza ‘Return March’: ‘One of the greatest duties is to fight those Jews’

The best way to describe the record of the Prophet’s treatment of the Jews is one of violence and force toward the Jews. This is what all the Muslims should know. The relation between us and them is one of eternal enmity.

This certainly goes against many Muslim apologists who try to say Muhammad was benevolent and treated the Jews well.

MEMRI TV, April 14, 2018.

Standing at the “Return March” venue, Gaza scholar Khaled Hany Morshid said that “one of the greatest duties, and one of the best forms of worship in our day, is to fight those Jews.” Calling upon all Muslims to “carry out glorious deeds” against them, he said that “the Jews will never stop this enmity unless the sword of Jihad for the sake of Allah is brandished, and they are made an example of, as was done by the Prophet Muhammad.” Morshid posted the video of himself on his social media channels on April 14.

Khaled Hany Morshid: “Allah mentioned the enmity of the Jews toward Islam and the Muslims in His book, saying: ‘You will find that the people strongest in enmity for those who believe are the Jews.’

“The Prophet Muhammad did not take his dealings with them lightly. His clever way of dealing with them was to make an example of them. When a Jew tried to violate the honor of a Muslim woman, the Muslims arose in arms to fight the Jews, and to drive them out of Medina. The Banu Qaynuqa’ tribe was among the most courageous of the Jews. They were brave people of war. But when they began to display enmity toward Islam and the Muslims, the Prophet Muhammad banished them from Medina, uprooting them completely. Similarly, when the Jews of the Qurayza tribe violated their treaty with the Prophet Muhammad, the Prophet Muhammad exterminated them, down to the very last one. The best way to describe the record of the Prophet’s treatment of the Jews is one of violence and force toward the Jews. This is what all the Muslims should know. The relation between us and them is one of eternal enmity. The Jews will never stop this enmity unless the sword of Jihad for the sake of Allah is brandished, and they are made an example of, as was done by the Prophet Muhammad.

“I call upon every Muslim: Do not stand idly by and let those Jews spread corruption upon the land. [You must] carry out glorious deeds against them. One of the greatest duties, and one of the best forms of worship in our day, is to fight those Jews.”
