In a recent speech, Hamas MP Marwan Abu Ras accused the West of providing Israel with weapons in order to atone for the Holocaust. The Jews' "conspiracies and treachery are what led to their being burned. Their deception and their acts against humanity led to their being burned," he said in the speech, which was broadcast on the Hamas Al-Aqsa TV on January 23, 2015.
Following are excerpts:
Marwan Abu Ras: France, which leads the offense against the Prophet Muhammad in our times, sends thousands of tons of shells [to Israel]. Germany, which wants to make amends for its historical sin toward the Jews, does so at our expense, as if through us it will atone for its sins against the Jews.
How is it our fault? What did we have to do with your burning of the Jews? Were the Jews burned for no fault of their own? Their conspiracies and treachery are what led to their being burned. They conspired against all people – even against those who were benevolent toward them. They stabbed in the back even those who were good to them. They command no good and forbid no evil. Germany knows this full well. It is, therefore, the West that supplies this illegitimate, foundling, so-called "state" with weapons of destruction.
