Hamas leader in Gaza repeats blood libel that Jews eat blood of non-Jewish children

Speaking on Hamas Al-Aqsa Television, Salah Al-Bardawil, a Hamas leader in Gaza, said that Jews had “ancient biblical beliefs, which instructed them to kill children and collect their blood, in order to knead it into the bread that is eaten on Passover.” He continued: “This is the killing of a Palestinian child in order to collect his blood and to knead it into the bread they eat.” The blood libel that Jews kidnap and murder non-Jewish children in order to use their blood for ritual purposes is a major theme in historic European persecution of Jews which is constantly repeated by Palestinian leaders as a means of incitement.
