Jordanian Cleric Abu Qatada Al-Filistini Discusses The Protocols Of The Elders of Zion, States: Jews Use Blood For Passover Matzos
January 9 and 18, 2016
Salafi Jordanian cleric Omar Mahmoud Othman, commonly known as Abu Qatada Al-Filastini, released a video on his YouTube channel in which he discusses "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." This is the 24th installment of Abu Qatada project "1,000 Books before Death." While discussing the Protocols, Sheikh Abu Qatada went off on a tangent to deny the Holocaust and affirm the blood libel. Abu Qatada resided in the U.K. and was repeatedly arrested in the 2000s on suspicion of links to terrorism. Eventually, he was deported to Jordan in July 2013, where he was tried, found innocent, and released.
Following are excerpts:
Abu Qatada Al-Filastini: "The issue that we are discussing is The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. If anyone talks about The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, they turn him into a laughing stock. He is regarded as a lunatic who does not belong to humanity. Who can even mention The Protocols of the Elders of Zion?
"What is even stranger is [what happens] when someone talks of the matzos of Zion. Do you know about the Jewish matzos, which are eaten on the Jewish holiday? Let me talk a little about the matzos before moving to the Protocols, their history, and the attempts to deny them. This Jewish blood matzos... there is a text in the Talmud...
"It says that the matzos eaten by the Jews on their holiday must be consecrated with the blood of a man from among the Gentiles. Usually they take a Christian because they cannot overpower a Muslim. This actually happened, yet they treat it as a mockery."

Lecture At Al-Aqsa Mosque: The Jews' Use Of Children's Blood For Passover Matzos Led To The Holocaust
May 29, 2915
During a lecture at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on May 29, 2015, Sheikh Khaled Al-Maghrabi said that the Jews were expelled from European countries and eventually burned in Germany because they would kidnap and murder children in order to knead their blood into Passover matzos. He further said that the Jews were behind 9/11 and that in their Masonic rites, they would kill their own relatives as a sacrifice to Satan.
Following are excerpts:
Sheikh Khaled Al-Maghrabi: "Let us consider the Holocaust of the Israelites in Germany, and all the prior problems that they experienced throughout Europe. The Israelites were expelled from all the countries of Europe, and eventually, they were burned in Germany. Ask yourselves why. Why did the Europeans expel them, moving them from one place to the other? It was not only due to (Jewish) corruption. On Passover, every Israelite community would seek a small child and kidnap him. They would bring a barrel pierced by many needles, and would place the little child inside it. That way, the needles would pierce the child's body. At the bottom of the barrel there would be a tap to drain the blood. Why would they collect the blood of the kidnapped child? Because Satan, or one of the other higher gods, said that if they wanted him to fulfill their desires, they would have to eat bread kneaded with children's blood.
"So what would they do? On Passover, when they are not allowed to eat regular bread, they make their matzos. They would knead the dough for these matzos with children's blood. When this was discovered, the Israelites were expelled throughout Europe. That was the beginning of the calamity of the Israelites in European countries. It got to the point where they were burned in Germany. It was because of all those things, because of their multiple kidnappings of children.
"There were many such cases. But the media keeps mum about it, but they may be found on the Internet. Just google 'Bread of the Jews' or 'matzos of the Jews,' and you will find all the stories with evidence and proof, complete with dates and police files."

Syrian Commentator Hussam Shoei'b: Zionists Burned Jordanian Pilot, Just Like They Knead Passover Matzos With Blood
February 6, 2015
Syrian commentator Hussam Shoei'b recently said that the immolation of the Jordanian pilot was "a clear demonstration of the barbarity of the Zionist entity," adding: "In the past, they used to knead [Passover] matzos with human blood and eat them." The statement was made on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV on February 6, 2015.
Hussam Shoei'b: "What is being done by all these criminal gangs - ISIS Jabhat Al-Nusra, Ahrar Al-Sham, and all these groups with their Islamic names - cannot even be labeled 'Israeli.' It is downright Talmudic. The immolation of the Jordanian pilot is a clear demonstration of the barbarity of the Zionist entity, and of the Talmud throughout history. One of their principles is that God can only be satiated by blood. In the past, they used to knead (Passover) matzos with human blood and eat them. This is exactly what is happening in Syria today for the whole world to see."

Senior Hamas Official Al-Bardawil: Jews Kill Palestinian Children In Order To Knead Their Blood Into Passover Bread
November 26, 2015
In a November 26, 2015 interview on the Hamas Al-Aqsa TV channel, Salah Al-Bardawil, a Hamas leader in Gaza, said that the Jews had "ancient biblical beliefs, which instructed them to kill children and collect their blood, in order to knead it into the bread that is eaten on Passover." "This is the killing of a Palestinian child in order to collect his blood and to knead it into the bread they eat," he said.
Following are excerpts:
Salah Al-Bardawil: "In addition, they have beliefs which they have tried to conceal from the world. I am referring to the ancient biblical beliefs, which instructed [the Jews] to kill children and collect their blood, in order to knead it into the bread that is eaten on Passover. This is the killing of a Palestinian child in order to collect his blood, and knead it into the bread they eat. Today, they are trying to say that these things never happened, and that it was a joke or a lie, but these are the facts of history. Anyone reading about their history will find this there."
