[IS THIS THE RELIGION OF PEACE?] Deborah Danan Breitbart 15 Jul 2019 TEL AVIV – A senior Hamas official in Gaza has called on Palestinians in the diaspora to “slaughter Jews” around the world. During a speech at Friday’s so-called March of the Return protests, Fathi Hamad warned that if the blockade of Gaza, imposed by Israel and Egypt for security reasons, is not lifted by July 19, “every Jew on the planet” should be killed. “Our patience has run out. We are on the verge of exploding. If this siege is not undone, we will explode in the face of our enemies, with God’s permission and glory. The explosion is not only going to be in Gaza but also in the [West] Bank and abroad, if God wills,” Hamad said in the speech, which was broadcast on the Hamas-owned Al-Aqsa TV.
