On January 26, 2009, the day before International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Sunni Islamist Egyptian channel Al-Rahma [Mercy] TV aired a show featuring Egyptian cleric Amin Al-Ansari.[1] Starting off by examining "the civil strife the Jews have caused throughout the world," Al-Ansari explained that because of the Jews' deeds during and after World War I, "it got to the point that the rulers themselves had no solution but to annihilate them."

Al-Ansari showed viewers how "the holocausts of the Jews in Germany were because of their own deeds – they were killing Germans, kindling civil strife, inciting the people against their rulers, and corrupting the peoples," underlining his points with World War II footage of the bombing of Berlin, which he compared to present-day Gaza.

Then, saying, "Let’s watch what Germany did to Israel – or rather, to the Jews," he screened footage of torture and killing of Jews in Dachau, Mauthausen, and Belsen, providing running commentary, and stating, "This is what we hope will happen, but, Allah willing, at the hand of the Muslims."

He adds that the Jews "have even turned [the Holocaust] it into a holiday, which will be marked in a few days. They call it the Holocaust Holiday, in which they rekindle what happened to them, for the whole world to see, so that people will feel sorry for them... so that they can continue to extort people politically and financially forever. They like money."

Warning: The show contains extremely disturbing Holocaust footage.

"Let Us Examine the Civil Strife the Jews Have Caused Throughout The World"

Amin Al-Ansari: "Let us examine the civil strife the Jews have caused throughout the world. Of course, we know what problems they caused the Muslims. They have always been like that, but in modern times, they only turned to the Muslims [relatively] late. They went around the world – to the East and West – because they love money, and the West was full of money – in England, France, Germany, and of course, in America, which was still a new country. This was 200 years ago. They focused on these places, and this is why they have spread in America and control the money. They immigrate to any place where there was money.

"The Jews spread corruption in the land during World Wars I and II. Let me tell you a very short story, so that you understand their way of thinking. The Jews do not know how to climb from the bottom up. They do not want to meet poor people, and then climb up, in order to reach the rulers of any country. Instead, they go straight to the rulers."

"Herzl... Invent[ed] Explosives, Bombs, and Missiles – Annihilation Underlies Their Ideology"

"In the 19th century, there was a man called Herzl, who was a scientist and had nothing to do with politics. What did this Theodor Herzl do? He used explosives to invent a weapon. He could have invented anything else – something that would benefit the world – but no, he had to invent explosives, bombs, and missiles. Annihilation underlies their ideology. This Theodor Herzl looked for the most powerful country in the world back then. It was England, which was occupying India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Egypt, and so on. So he became close to the British prime minister, and said to him: I’ve invented something that could benefit you in your colonialist wars."

"The Jews... Waged World War I... They Spread Corruption... It Got To the Point That the Rulers Themselves Had No Solution But to Annihilate Them"

"Balfour promised them a state for the Jews in the land of Palestine. So the Jews began channeling all their loyalty and support to England. They began traveling all over the world in support of England. What did they do? They waged World War I, and tried to crush all the forces that were fighting England, such as Germany and other countries. They spread corruption in the land – in Czechoslovakia, in Germany, and in the republics of the USSR.

"The corruption spread by the Jews was very great. Very great. It got to the point that the rulers themselves had no solution but to annihilate them. This was said even by the rulers of America themselves. You see that America supports Israel, but this is partly because it hates and fears Israel, since the [Jews] are corruptors. Most of the U.S. rulers said to the American people: We’d better give them a place of their own, and keep them and their evil at bay from our European countries. They wanted to places them in a country of their own, far from anything to do with the European peoples."

"The Holocausts of the Jews In Germany Were Because Of Their Own Deeds – They Were Killing Germans, Kindling Civil Strife, Inciting the People Against Their Rulers, and Corrupting the Peoples"

"In a nutshell, the holocausts of the Jews in Germany were because of their own deeds. They were killing Germans, kindling civil strife, inciting the people against their rulers, and corrupting the peoples. 'Every time they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it.'

"Let me show you what corruption they caused, and what damage they inflicted upon all the countries of the world – upon peoples and governments alike. Let’s watch the holocaust that the Jews underwent, which were Allah’s way of wreaking vengeance upon them. Let’s watch what the German people, or the German army, did to them. This is, of course, a part of the corruption of Germany by the Jews."

"Observe the Great Similarity Between Gaza and the German Streets Back Then"

Footage of the German army and the bombing of Berlin during World War II, with Al-Ansari's running commentary:

"This is the Germany army. It is clear. These are children in the German army. Consecutive wars, which lasted many years, annihilated the people, so the Germans began using children as soldiers.

"Look, this is Berlin. The German cities were bombed from all directions, because of the Jews, who were destroying countries... Observe the great similarity between Gaza and the German streets back then, even though Germany is a very large country.

"These people like to spread corruption, and when they can’t, they look for those who can, and encourage them to do it. Back in those days, it was England that they encouraged to spread corruption. This is Germany, and this is the destruction it suffered in 1945.

"These Are the Armies That Israel Encouraged to Corrupt and Destroy the German Army and Country... This Is What The Jews Did"

"Observe these cities, and think about what exactly is happening. These are the armies that Israel encouraged to corrupt and destroy the German army and country. See the rubble and the dead people on the ground. The world was dying – country and civilization was being annihilated."

End of footage

"This is what the Jews did."

"When [The Germans] Realized That The Jews Were Behind All This, They Took Revenge On Them – They Were Not Weak, As The Muslims Are Today; They Had Something Different In Mind. Let’s Watch What Germany Did to Israel – Or Rather, to the Jews"

"The Germans were, of course, strong. When they realized that the Jews were behind all this, they took revenge on them. They were not weak, as the Muslims are today. They had something different in mind.

"Let’s watch what Germany did to Israel – or rather, to the Jews – so we can understand that there is no remedy for these people, other than imposing fear and terror on them.

"There is one language that the Jews understand – the language of force. If you are stronger than them, they are afraid of you. That is why Allah said: "They fear you in their hearts more than Allah." Allah said: "Prepare for them whatever force and steeds of war you can, to strike terror in the hearts of Allah’s enemies and your enemies." The Jews is afraid of you more than he is afraid of God. When the Germans revealed the treachery and the war of the Jews against them, and the fact that they were spreading corruption in their country – let us watch how oppressors are killed by the people they oppressed."

Title: "Dachau Concentration Camp:" Footage of railroad tracks, a Zyklon B gas canister, showers, a German soldier opening the door of a crematorium to show skeletons, and piles of emaciated bodies. Al-Ansari in running commentary:

"What we have here are German graves, but let’s watch what the Germans do to the Jews. These are corpses of dead humans and the shattered bones of Jews. Here we have a crematorium, in which the Jews were burnt."

Footage of concentration camp inmates; title: Mauthausen Concentration Camp." Footage of inmates. Al-Ansari continues his commentary as horrific camp scenes unfold:

"These are Jews who are being prepared to be burnt. Look, these are Jews dying of hunger or by gas. Look how they round them up and put them on trucks. Note the humiliation on his face, Allah be praised. 'Abasement and humiliation were brought down upon them, and they became deserving of Allah’s wrath.'

"Look what starvation [the Germans] inflicted upon them. Look what humiliation. These are people being buried alive. Does this look like a human being? He is placed in a ditch to be buried alive. This is a pile of bodies. Ibn Mas’oud was right... "

"These Are [Jewish] Corpses, Allah Be Praised... These Are The Bodies of the Jews Being Loaded Like Animals... This Is What We Hope Will Happen, But, Allah Willing, At the Hand of The Muslims"

Footage of torture of concentration camp prisoners. Al-Ansari continues commentary, describing the onscreen action:

"Look, this is a barbed wire, used to crush their bodies. He and five others will be hanged with a single chain. Concentrate on this, my brothers. Watch this. Look, they are tying five heads together.

"These are bodies. Here they are drilling a hole in his back with a nail. This child awaits his turn. Watch their humiliation. These are corpses, Allah be praised.

"The [Jews] are oppressors. They are being deported. Ibn Mas’oud was right [title: " Belsen Concentration Camp," footaage of piles of corpses] when he said: 'All the oppressors are killed by those they oppress.' [Closeups of bodies] These are bodies, these are dead people, these are skulls. These are the bodies of the Jews being loaded like animals. Watch this tractor clearing away the corpses of the Jews, and these are the refugees awaiting their turn to be killed. A German soldier will come now, and you will see a Jewish woman kissing his hand. Notice what humiliation, fear, and terror have struck her. See how much she is kissing his hand. Watch her humiliation. This is what we hope will happen, but, Allah willing, at the hand of the Muslims."

"These Are the Images That the Jews Are Now Exploiting in Order to Make People Feel Sorry For Them... So That They can Continue to Extort... Forever – They Like Money"

Footage continues. Soldiers look at a pile of bodies.

"These are the bodies of the Jews. These are oppressors. Not so long before, they were fighting these soldiers, who are now standing and looking at their corpses.

"Watch, my brothers. This is the German army. These are the tractors clearing away the bodies of the Jews, in order to put them in collective pits. These are the images that the Jews are now exploiting in order to make people feel sorry for them." End of footage.

"These holocausts and all that are a thing of the past. But they are renewing it again and again, and have even turned it into a holiday, which will be marked in a few days. They call it the Holocaust Holiday, in which they rekindle what happened to them, for the whole world to see, so that people will feel sorry for them.

"They got the whole world on its feet over these holocausts, so that they can continue to extort people politically and financially forever. They like money."

Jewish Father Teaches Son to "Take Everything They Give"

"There’s a story I heard about the Jews. One Jew took his son... This father kept looking for new supermarkets that were being opened, because they have freebies – gifts and stuff. Whenever a new supermarket opened, he would take his son to get the freebies. He said to his son: Whatever you find for free – take it. Never mind what it is – take it and put it in your pocket.

"They got to a grocery store. The man welcomed them and showed them the merchandise. He showed the child the pistachio nuts, and said: Take some. The child said: No. The man asked him why, and the child said: My dad told me not to take anything from anyone. He was lying.

"The father was standing next to him, very angry. He was going crazy. Even the father told him to take some, but the child refused, and said: 'Only if he hands them to me, I will take them.' The man said: Fine. He took a handful of pistachios, and the child stuffed them into his pockets. After they left, the father asked the son: 'What was that all about? I told you not to take?! I told you to take everything they give.'

"The child said: 'Dad, let me explain. I have small hands, and I can only take a little bit. But I let him give it to me with his large hands, and look how much I got.' The father said: 'If you weren’t so cunning, I would have thought you might not be really Jewish.'"
