Hamas preacher waves knife: ‎‎"The truth of Islam is coming... go out… attack"

Sheikh Muhammad Salah Abu Rajab, Al-Abrar Mosque in Rafah, Gaza Strip:‎ 
‎“’Khaibar, oh Jews!’ (i.e., village where Jews were killed by Muhammad's army in 628). The army ‎of Muhammad has begun to return from Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Saudi Arabia... My brother on ‎the West Bank, stab! ... Paradise is adorned with spears and daggers... The men of Gaza are digging in ‎the ground, taking out what is in it, and have crossed the borders. They have taken their revenge, O ‎Messenger of Allah. People of the West Bank, you saw how the soldiers ran away... Today is the day. ‎‎[Jews are under] curfew. Curfew, curfew... You won't find anything in our land but slaughter. You ‎won't find anything in our land but slaughter and stabbing... The truth is coming, the truth of Islam... ‎Young people of the West Bank, go out in threes, fours, attack. Some will hold the [Jews'] hands, and ‎the others will stab with axes and cleavers.‎
‎[Sheikh quotes lyrics from popular song:]‎
‎‘I'm coming towards you, my enemy.‎
From every house, neighborhood and street
I'm coming towards you, my enemy with cleavers and knives ‎
From every house, neighborhood and street...’‎
Men of the West Bank, in [your] next attack, attack in groups - three, four, five together. Cut [the ‎Jews] to pieces.”‎
‎[Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Oct. 9, 2015]‎

Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. ‎Many Jews were killed in the battle, which marked the end of the Jewish presence in ‎Arabia. There are Muslims who see this event as a precursor to future wars against ‎Jews. At extremist gatherings and rallies, this slogan is often chanted as a threat to ‎Jews, implying that they should expect to be defeated and massacred again by Muslims.‎

The above clip was translated and documented by Palestinian Media Watch:

Founded in 1996, Palestinian Media Watch is an Israeli research institute that studies Palestinian society from a broad range of perspectives by monitoring and analyzing the Palestinian Authority through its media and schoolbooks. PMW’s major focus is on the messages that the Palestinian leaders, from the Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas, send to the population through the broad range of institutions and infrastructures they control.

PMW’s many reports and studies on Palestinian summer camps, poetry, schoolbooks, crossword puzzles, religious ideology, women and mothers, children's music videos and the PA’s indoctrination of adults and children to seek Shahada (Martyrdom), have had significant impact on the way the world sees the Palestinians. PMW has presented its findings before members of US Congress and to members of Parliament in numerous countries, including the European Union, Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, Holland, Switzerland, Canada and Australia, and has lectured at universities and conferences world wide.

PMW material has been presented before the Foreign Affairs Committee in the US Congress and the US Senate Appropriations Committee. In addition, PMW reports regularly on how foreign aid is misused by the PA for terror promotion. These reports have led to changes in legislation and funding procedures. Through its bulletins and reports, PMW continues to give the world a precise understanding of the reality of the Palestinian Authority.
