Jews drink the blood of Muslims and believe that God wants Jews to hate Muslims, according to a Hamas TV skit. Performed before a live audience at the Islamic University in Gaza, the segment features actors playing a father and son, in traditional Hasidic Jewish garb, discussing their God mandated hatred of Muslims. The skit opens as the father instructs: “We Jews hate the Muslims, we want to kill the Muslims, we Jews want to drink the blood of Muslims.” It is later explained that Jews wash their hands before prayer, not with water, but with Muslims’ blood: “We have to wash our hands with the blood of Muslims.”
Blood libels were a tragic part of Jewish history, as Jews were accused of using the blood of non-Jews for ritual purposes, especially the baking of Matzah for Passover. Blood libels created deep hatred and were an effective trigger for numerous pogroms and the murder of thousands.
