Following are excerpts from an interview with Kuwaiti scholar Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna, which aired on Al-Rai TV on September 30, 2013:
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "First of all, as a Muslim, I believe that [the Jews] are evil. It is not that evil is in their genes, but their cultural education is based upon the Talmud, which derides the goyim, or 'the others.' For them, even God is racist. Yahweh is the god of the Israelites alone. The word Elohim is barely mentioned, and Yahweh belongs to the Jews alone. Racism became part and parcel of this religion, or this people. The Jews became a separate people with its own religion. Incidentally, it is the only religion that does not proselytize."
Interviewer: "Because they consider all the others to be Gentiles..."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "Right, they think the others will defile them if they join their religion. I am not saying that the Jews have evil in their genes. But it is remarkable that at least a quarter of the stories in the Koran are about the Israelites, or the Jews. Everything Allah warned us about through the story of Moses – how they slayed the prophets, and so on..."
Interviewer: "All contemporary studies deal with religious Jews, and not with the secular Jews who assimilated in Europe."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "What is remarkable is that, secular or not, the Jews are racist. The founders of the so-called 'Israel' – Weizmann and Ben-Gurion – were atheists. But if they had truly dissociated themselves from the religion, how come they were the most zealous about gathering the Jews, under Zionism? If you are truly an atheist, you should assimilate in your country – in Poland, Russia, or America. After all, religion does not interest you... The most zealous Jews are the atheists. This proves that it is a lie that they are atheist, even if they say they are."
Interviewer: "As you said, even if they are secular, their racism and their upbringing shape their view of people."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "I have written extensively about The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and about the writings of the late Dr. Abd Al-Wahhab Al-Massiri. I have seen the evidence provided by those who deny that The Protocols is genuine, and those who affirm that it is. If you compare the evidence of the deniers, like Dr. Abd Al-Wahhab Al-Massiri, with the evidence of the affirmers, the latter is stronger.
"What is incredible is that those who deride the affirmers for believing that everything is a conspiracy and that the Jews are behind everything are themselves accusing Czarist Russia's secret services of a conspiracy."
Interviewer: "They accuse the Russians of forging that book."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "That's right." [...]
"I'm not saying that evil is in their genes. Allah created them with the same disposition as any other human being. However, the education that they impart to their children – based upon the Talmudic notions of contempt for others, killing others, practicing usury, and considering themselves superior – is what turned them into a people with hatred for the others." [...]
"You could say that the Jews are a group with a certain function. That is why then ran secret organizations and secret parties, and why they practiced prostitution, usury, and so on."
Interviewer: "It is said that they are a closed group, forced to sink so low in Europe."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "Take a look at the Armenians. They do not have organized prostitution. How come they did not form secret parties, like the Freemasons or the Illuminati?"
Interviewer: "Even though the Armenians were a persecuted minority..."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "The Armenians were not persecuted by the Ottomans. That's a lie. On the contrary, it was the Armenians who persecuted the Muslims of the Ottoman state. We should be talking about the Armenian massacre of the Muslims, not vice versa. I could talk for an entire show about that, backing it up with documents, and with the testimony of people sent by the League of Nations." [...]
"Who is not familiar with Charlie Chaplin? Mamduh 'Udwan mentions in his book that Charlie Chaplin is a Jew."
Interviewer: "The book is titled The Judaization of Knowledge."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "Yes. Sarah Bernhardt, the greatest actress in the history of France and Europe, was Jewish. Why is Madame Curie from Poland more famous than her husband? She became famous because she was Jewish, while her husband, who invented radium and uranium with her, was not. But Madam Curie, who was Jewish, became famous."
Interviewer: "Philosopher Abd Al-Rahman Badawi in Vol. 3 of his encyclopedia of philosophy, sharply criticized Einstein, saying that the Jews had turned him into a legend. True, he was a scientist, but there was also an accumulated legacy."
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "Take, for example, Oppenheimer, who invented the nuclear bomb. A Bengali Muslim invented it along with him, but he didn't become famous. Everybody knows Oppenheimer as the 'Father of the Nuclear Bomb.'
"When you check the writings of writers and journalists, you always see the Jews, because the media is controlled by Jewish companies, such as Rupert Murdoch, the owner of CNN. He is a Jew. Even Reuters... Do you know what Reuters' full name was? Israel Reuters. That is Reuters – the most famous news agency in the world."
Interviewer: "Do you think that Hitler, in his book Mein Kampf, was being unfair to the Jews when he wrote, in an entire chapter: 'Wherever they are, the Jews are loyal only to their own groups, and they segregate themselves from the country where they live'?"
Muhanna Hamad Al-Muhanna: "That's true." [...]
