Hamas Calls for Worldwide Global Jihad Tomorrow

October 12, 2023

ICC must prosecute Hamas for crimes against humanity mass murder, kidnapping, rape, targeting of civilian families


The Simon Wiesenthal Center condemns Hamas and Khaled Mashal who have issued a statement designating tomorrow, Friday, October 13, 2023, as a ­­­­day of general mobilization for the "Al-Aqsa Flood" operations. In the statement, it urged Palestinians in the West Bank and within Israel to participate in large-scale rallies and confront Israeli soldiers at every opportunity.


Extending its call to Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims, and advocates of freedom worldwide, Hamas exhorted them to dedicate this coming Friday as a day of unwavering support, to "expose the occupation and earn the honor of taking part in defending Al-Aqsa Mosque and to “show anger” toward Zionists and America. 


Simon Wiesenthal Center statement:


“Instead of providing aid and comfort to terrorist Hamas’s top leaders, Qatar should turn them over to the International Criminal Court for them to be prosecuted for crimes against humanity including mass murder, kidnapping, rape, targeting of civilian families including the killing and beheading of 40 Israeli infants in one community.


Hamas’s top leadership should no longer have a safe haven anywhere else in the world but Tehran with their paymasters and ultimate supporters.”
