Hamas cleric and TV host Iyad Abu Funun said in a February 6, 2020 sermon broadcast on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that the guns of the Palestinian people will "break Trump's nose" and teach him that the Palestinians are alive on their land. He said that Trump cannot control the destiny of the Palestinian people the same way he can give away real estate properties, and he threatened: "You want us to hand over our weapons [after] Allah [has] bestowed upon us the capability to manufacture drones and missiles that hit Tel Aviv and Haifa? Come and take them, so we can give you a lesson in manliness and heroism! We will take your life before you can take a single gun away from us."

Iyad Abu Funun: "The gun of every free Palestinian man will break Trump's nose. It will teach him a lesson: Our people are alive on our land.

[...]

"[Trump,] this is not the land of your father or grandfather. You can give away the real estate properties that you own and the states that you rule, but you will not control our destiny.

[...]

"You want us to hand over our weapons? He said that he wanted to disarm the resistance in Palestine. Come over and do it! Come over and take away our weapons!

[...]

"Today, after Allah has bestowed upon us the capability to manufacture drones and missiles that his Tel Aviv and Haifa, you want to take even a single bullet away from us? Come and take them, so we can give you a lesson in manliness and heroism! We will take your life before you can take a single gun away from us."
