Hamas MP and member of Board of Trustees of the International Union of Muslim Scholars Marwan Abu Ras said in a December 2, 2023 show on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that the Israeli occupation is worse than the Nazis, and that in fact such a comparison is an insult to the Nazis. He added that there is not a single crime that America did not commit against Gaza, and he asked Allah to "settle the score" and take revenge against "that criminal Nazi country." Abu Ras said that Israel is powerless in the face of the young men who strive for martyrdom, more than it and its people strive for life.
Marwan Abu Ras: "The [Israeli] occupation is worse than the Nazis. Such a comparison is an insult to the Nazis. It is a worse criminal than fascists. It is a worse criminal than any criminal that has ever walked the face of the earth.
"The occupation must be defeated and have its nose rubbed in the mud of Gaza. The occupation knows full well that it is facing fierce resistance by the young men that are known to have been brought up in mosques, nurtured on the Quran and on the Sunna of the Prophet Muhammad, the martyred Jihadi leader, the honorable and infallible Prophet Muhammad. These young men were nurtured on the honorable Sunna of the Prophet Muhammad. I say to [Israel] that it is powerless in the face of these young men, because they strive to be martyred more than you, your soldiers, and your country strive to live.
"If it was up to that criminal [Palestinian] Authority that engages in security cooperation with the occupiers – be it the Zionist occupier or the Nazi Americans... If it wasn't for the resistance, we would be living in humiliation and disgrace because of this shameful Authority. Rise up against the [Palestinian] Authority, do not let it rule over you!
"Everything that this enemy does, it does with American equipment, even American personnel, and an American plan. A short while ago, it was reported that the United States said that it viewed the new war plans for the second round of the war against Gaza. There isn't a single crime that the U.S. has not committed against Gaza. May Allah settle the score with America, and may He take revenge on that criminal Nazi country."
