Senior Hamas official Mahmoud Al-Zahhar said in a November 23, 2021 interview on Palestine Today TV (Gaza/Lebanon) that every single European country banished the Jews because of their corruption. He said that the Europeans planted the Jews in Palestinian land, and that the recent British ban of Hamas is "immoral and constitutes political hypocrisy." He also said that Britain will pay for the ban.
Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: "There isn’t a single country in Europe that has not banished the Jews, because of their corruption and because they spread corruption in those countries. Today, after they banished them and planted them in our land, they are turning them into a legal issue [by banning Hamas in Britain]. This is immoral and constitutes political hypocrisy, for which Britain will one day pay the price."
