Speaking on Hamas' Al-Aqsa TV, Islamic cleric Salah Nour cited the antisemitic hadith according to which the Muslims would fight the Jews on Judgment Day, and the trees and stones would give up the Jews hiding behind them. He praised the "virtue" of Jihad, and said: "Islam will prevail, Allah willing, and the Muslims will rule the entire Earth."
Salah Nour: "When the clerics, the preachers, and the imams in the mosques say that victory belongs to the religion [of Islam], and that we will overcome the Jews, who are in a position of power and who control us, people say that the preachers are laughing at us, inflaming our sentiments, and toying with our emotions, as a form of sedative to keep us quiet and persevere in this harsh reality. This is not true! The Prophet Muhammad said: 'Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Jews will hide behind trees and stones. Then the trees and the stones will say: Oh Muslims, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.' The Jews believe in this more than some of the Muslims. According to some history and archaeology books, [the Jews] planted over a million [Gharqad] trees, because they believe the hadith of the Prophet Muhammad.
"The [Muslim] weakness will turn into strength. Islam will prevail, Allah willing, and the Muslims will rule the entire Earth.
"Through this test, these dire straits, and this catastrophe Allah wants to see who will bear arms, who will wage Jihad for the sake of Allah, who will fight for the sake of Allah, and who will accept the fate decreed by Allah. Allah in His grace opened the door of Jihad and of ribat to us. There are 242 Quranic verses that refer to the virtue of Jihad, saying: Wage Jihad, fight, go on ribat, wage [war]."
