Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar said in a recent address at the Gaza seat of the Palestinian parliament that "Trump's forefathers" expelled the Jews from numerous countries in Europe in medieval times because they corrupted everything through usury and extortion. Al-Zahhar said that Trump "wants to win the votes of the Jews and his political position is motivated primarily by his corruption in the recent elections." His address, delivered on January 3, was broadcast by Al-Aqsa TV.
Mahmoud Al-Zahar: "The historical treatment of the Jews by the Crusader West attests to hypocrisy. Today, Trump is trying to appear as if he is supporting the Israeli occupation, but the forefathers of the West had other things to say [about the Jews]. The Jews used to live all over Europe, and they corrupted everything in it. This is their history. They corrupted everything in Europe. While working as slaves to the kings, they corrupted the leaders. They corrupted the European peoples with usury. They corrupted its economy using extortion. It has been recorded in the annals of European history that the corruption of the Jews was met with the worst violence imaginable. More than 100 cases of full expulsion and total uprooting of the Jews were recorded in Palestine [sic].
"Let me just mention what Trump's forefathers did to the Jews. In 1253, the Jews were completely uprooted from France. In 1280, the Jews were completely uprooted from Britain. In 1384, the Jews were completely uprooted from Germany. In 1360, France expelled once again large numbers of Jews. These are the forefathers of Trump. This was before America was founded. In 1360, that same year, Hungary expelled its entire Jewish population. In 1370, a decade later, Belgium expelled all the Jews from its land. In 1380, Slovenia followed in the footsteps of the other European countries, and removed all the Jews from its land. In 1420, it was Austria's turn to expel all the Jews from its land. In 1444, Holland expelled the Jews from its land. In 1492, the Jews were expelled from Spain, simultaneously with the elimination of the Islamic state there. The inquisition courts were established to persecute the Jew for their crimes against the [Christian] population. In 1882, after the assassination of Russian Tsar Alexander II, the Jews were tortured and completely expelled from Russia. Brothers and sisters, these were attempts to get rid of the evils of that gang, which corrupted every place in [Europe]. Trump's actions should be viewed in the context of this corruption. He wants to win the votes of the Jews, and his political position is motivated primarily by his corruption in the recent elections."
