In a January 22 Al-Majd TV interview, Palestinian scholar Samir Said talked about what he called the "criminal and Satanic nature" of the Jews and said that they were "the enemies of Mankind," who had "killed 70 prophets in a single day." Said is a member of the Jerusalem Committee of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS).
Following are excerpts:
Interviewer: Let's talk about the well-known history of Jewish crimes, since the days of the Israelites, and their crimes against the most noble people of those times – the prophets and messengers, against whom they committed grave crimes, including killings and assassinations. Let's talk about the history of detentions by the Jews.
Samir Said: First, we must note that the Jews really are the enemies of Mankind. They are the enemies of the prophets and messengers, according to the Quran. Therefore, they killed prophets, according to numerous verses. They killed 70 prophets in a single day, buried them in their well, and then they immediately went to work at their markets – their vegetable market and other markets. The Jews have a criminal and Satanic nature. They do not care about other people, only about their worldly interests. They consider all the other nations of this world to be Gentiles, or in other words, donkeys to ride on.
Samir Said: Yes, Muslims, Christians. Everybody. They view all of Mankind this way. They ride them, in order to achieve the goals of the Jews in the world. If you check history, you will find that they even poisoned the Prophet Muhammad and killed him.
