Sheikh Nasser Maarouf of the Palestine Islamic Scholars Association claimed in a July 3, 2020 interview on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas – Gaza) that the millions of people who were killed in the World Wars died because of the Jews, who he said tyrannize and corrupt the world. Sheikh Maarouf blamed the Jews for the poverty, the bloodshed, and the violation of women's honor all over the world, and he said that the Jews feed and finance corruption. He added that this constitutes glad tidings for the Muslims, because the Jews will ultimately be vanquished and gathered unto Hell.
Nasser Maarouf: "According to statistics compiled by [Egyptian professor] Ragheb El-Sergany about the wars of the Muslims throughout history, from the time of the Prophet Muhammad until the Rightly Guided Caliphs, the number of Muslims and non-Muslims who were killed was less than 1,500... Rather, it was about 15,000 dead or a bit less, out of about 250,000 Muslims and about one million infidels, the enemies of Allah. The statistics about the number of people killed in the World Wars alone... Millions of people were killed, all because of these Jews, who ran wild, tyrannized the world and spread corruption in it. Their corruption affects all walks of life. Look at the poverty all over the world. Look at the blood that is being spilled all over the world. Look at the honor of women being violated all over the world. If you check, you find that it is the Jews who are behind all that. They are the ones feeding all corruption on earth, and they are the ones financing it. These are glad tidings for us, Allah willing. [The Quran says:] 'Those who disbelieve spend their wealth to avert [people] from the way of Allah. So they will spend it, then it will be for them a [source] of regret, and then they will be vanquished. And those who have disbelieved - unto Hell they will be gathered.'"
