Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Hamas Leader Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on September 5, 2010.
Mahmoud Al-Zahhar: Ibn Al-Kathir said that Allah sent 124,000 prophets and messengers. The Israelites – or the Jews – killed half of them. In other words, they slayed 62,000 prophets and messengers.
Our enterprise extends far beyond Palestine: Palestine in its entirety, the Arab nation in its entirety, the Islamic nation in its entirety, and the entire world.
