A video released by the Middle East Media Research Institute cuts right to the politically incorrect core of the Hamas-Israel ongoing conflict to reveal the terror group's true intents — to "exterminate" the Jewish people.
The video shows a Hamas cleric on Al-Aqsa TV delivering a recent sermon, referencing Jews: "Our belief about fighting you is that we will exterminate you, until the last one, and we will not leave of you, even one. For you are the usurpers of the land, foreigners, mercenaries of the present and of all times," Breitbart reported.
The cleric then goes on to explain the reasons for his hatred of Jews.
"Look at history, brothers," he said, MEMRI found. "Wherever there were Jews, they spread corruption. ... Their belief is destructive. Their belief fulfills the prophecy. Our belief is in obtaining our rights on our land, implementing Shariah under Allah's sky."
The video comes amid media messages that say Hamas is simply fighting for independence in Gaza from Israel — which still controls the air and sea border for the land — and for a return to pre-1967 borders.
