In a recent TV interview, host Dr. Muhammad Khaled and his guest, Islamic history professor Yusri Ahmad Zidan, agreed that burning was the "only solution" for the Jews. "The history of the Jews has been black since the dawn of time," said Khaled. "Nebuchadnezzar burned them, the Crusaders burned them, and even Hitler and Nazism burned them. Is burning the only solution for the Jews?" he asked. "So it seems. So it seems," Zidan concurred. The interview aired on the Egyptian Rahma TV channel on October 27, 2015.


Following are excerpts:


Yusri Ahmad Zidan: The Crusaders killed the Jews as well. They rounded them up in a house of worship, and burned it down. All the Jews who survived were sold.


TV host Dr. Muhammad Khaled: As slaves?

Yusri Ahmad Zidan: Every 30 Jews were sold for one dinar.


TV host Dr. Muhammad Khaled: That's right.


Yusri Ahmad Zidan: The Crusaders sold the Jews who were saved from being killed. In that period, Jerusalem was left without Jews, of course.


TV host Dr. Muhammad Khaled: This is a trivial price, but obviously, that was what they were worth.


Yusri Ahmad Zidan: They treated them this way because they believed that the Jews had killed Jesus. The Crusaders treated the Jews this way because they believed that the Jews had harmed and killed Jesus.

TV host Dr. Muhammad Khaled: Dr. Zidan, the history of the Jews has been black since the dawn of time. Nebuchadnezzar burned them, the Crusaders burned them, and even Hitler and Nazism burned them. Is burning the only solution for the Jews?


Yusri Ahmad Zidan: So it seems. So it seems.


TV host Dr. Muhammad Khaled: No negotiations, coexistence, or anything…


Yusri Ahmad Zidan: It's impossible.


TV host Dr. Muhammad Khaled: History tells us that they were burned time and again, taken into captivity time and again, and sold into slavery.
