Hamas Official: No Such Thing as ‘Plestinians’

Hamas Official No Such Thing as Plestinians

You put things differently in a press conference than you do in a fund raiser. This message, from Hamas Interior Minister Fathi Hammad, is for internal consumption:



We all have Arab roots and every Palestinian, in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots – whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. We have blood ties.

Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We’re all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri (“Egyptian”). Brothers, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis.

Who are the Palestinians?

We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian!

They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt.

We are Egyptians. We are Arabs. We are Muslims.

Good to know…

  1. This is true paint a different face on a Nazi pig it is still a Nazi pig

  2. This article proves that the so called "Palestinians" are Arabs.
    The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) in the year 635 CE.
    The Land of Israel belongs to the people of Israel, also called the Jewish people, as it is written in the Bible.
    Therefore, the Arabs who invaded the Land of Israel (Palestine) must go back to their land, which is Arabia.

  3. It is mute now what you call them but a significant if not majority of Palestinians came to Israel after the first and successive Jewish Aliyah because of the infrastructure, agriculture and industry built by the Jews coming from Europe. Having said that, they are here and have been for generations now.

  4. Jun Sagal says:

    Penestinians? Spanish word pestilence?

  5. Didnt we already know this? Other than Arafat claiming he was a Philistine (the noun not the adjective) we all knew that arab comes from arabia. that is why we call them Arabs. We are jews (named by the Romans but that is a different problem) because we descended and were living in Judea.

  6. Miriam Esther says:

    i'm pretty sure the word jew comes from the word 'yehudi' which means full of thanks …. a derivative of the name Yehuda which was bestowed upon Leah's fourth son as thanks to Hashem …. the area of judea was assigned to the tribe of Yehuda when klal Yisrael came to Israel ….. so while the romans may have referred to those coming from judea as jews, it was most definitely because we, as jews, are full of thanks to Hashem ….

  7. Miriam Esther says:

    i could be wrong but i think the name 'palestine' comes from the word 'philistine' …. philistine derives from the Hebrew word plisha or plishtim …. this roughly translates to 'invader' …. seems they have names themselves correctly ….

  8. Hear it from the 'Horse's mouth' They admit they all came from elsewhere!

From the “Defeat Jihad Summit” held in February 2015.


Rabbi Mike Feuer, educational director of Beit Midrash Sulam Yaakov, joins Yishai to discuss ‘Va’etchanan,’ this week’s Torah portion.

Yishai reflects on an extremely difficult experience he had yesterday — enduring verbal abuse and humiliation, as he attempted to visit the Temple Mount.

Then, in the light of the treatment of Jews at Judaism’s holiest site, the demolitions at Beit El and the Gay Pride March, Yishai discusses with Rabbi Feuer the repetition in “Va’etchanan” of the 10 Commandments and the iconic phrases that crop up throughout the portion, including the line that embodies the core principals of Judaism — the “Shema.” The two also consider the greatest struggles facing modern-day Israel and 21st-century Jewry.

Randol Schoenberg, renowned attorney and president of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, discusses explosive issues with Yishai.

Schoenberg, the prestigious Jewish lawyer recently portrayed in the popular movie, “Woman in Gold,” and Yishai discuss the US Supreme Court’s refusal to allow Jerusalem to be identified as part of Israel on official documents, and its recent decision to recognize same-sex marriage. Then, they debate the Iran deal, coming to very different conclusions. Schoenfeld shares his thoughts on recent developments emerging from the Obama administration.

Baruch Widen, interfaith dialoguer and Arabist, joins Yishai to discuss the pro-Israel trend taking hold among the capital’s Arab population.

The community is applying for Israeli citizenship in unprecedented numbers. Baruch and Yishai consider why.

Rabbi Mottle Wolfe joins Yishai to discuss the contours of the religious-secular divide in the Jewish state.

The two show hosts talk about the phenomenon of the very secular Tel Aviv being a mere five kilometers away from the ultra-Orthodox Bnei Brak. The former celebrates Israel Independence Day, but doesn’t fast on the day that marks the loss of Jewish sovereignty 2,000 years ago. The latter observes the religious fast, but does not take part in the modern celebrations of statehood. They envision a way to move the process of building the third Jewish commonwealth forward.

This is a walk-through the main sanctuary of the Holy Temple…

Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to deconstruct the unique structure of the fifth book of the Torah, Devarim, or Deuteronomy.

Jews around the world are about to begin the weekly reading of the Book of Deuteronomy, a volume which acts as a transcription of Moses’s last speech to the people of Israel. Rabbi Feuer helps explain the volume’s special philosophy.

Conservative minister of the Canadian Parliament Peter Kent tells Yishai why his country will not agree to lift Iranian sanctions.

Kent, chair of the House of Commons Standing Committee on National Defense, explains that, unlike the United States, Canada demands to see true reform within the Islamic Republic before making concessions. This unwavering position places Canada as a leader against turning a blind eye to terrorism.
