The Talmud instructs Jews to kill Christians and use their blood to make Passover matzahs, a Jordanian writer claimed in an article published on a Palestinian website in March, the Middle East Media Research Institute reported Monday.
In an article published on the Gaza-based website Alwatanvoice.com on March 27 and quoted by MEMRI, As'ad Al-'Azouni, a Jordanian of Palestinian origin, writes: "It is no secret that the Jewish hostility toward Jesus and the Christians is very deep ... We have not forgotten that [the Jews] are commanded to kill Christian children and use their blood to bake matzahs for the [Passover] holiday ... The Jews are also forbidden from eating the flesh of an animal slaughtered by a Christian, and are obligated to burn and destroy the icons of the Christian Church."
"Rabbi Moshe Abu Al-'Afia [one of the Jews implicated in the 1840 Damascus blood libel] maintained that the Talmud permits shedding blood of two kinds: the blood of the [Passover] sacrifice and blood of circumcision. And if there is no Christian blood available [for baking the Passover matza], then Muslim blood may [be used], since many Christians converted to Islam," Al-'Azouni writes.
The Jordanian writer also blames Jews for provoking animosity between Muslims and Christians. "The Jews make great efforts to cause war between the Muslims and Christians, like what happened during the protest over the disappearance of a Christian boy in Damascus in 1890."
Al-'Azouni says, "This proves only one thing, namely [the extent of] the Jews' influence on, and infiltration of, all circles in Christian societies and even Muslim ones, and their success in harming anyone who opposes them and exposes the secrets of their Talmudic hatred."
In a previous article written by Al-'Azouni last year in a Jordanian newspaper, and quoted by MEMRI, he wrote, "Israel is a peace rejectionist. That much is obvious. But what people don't know is the reason for this — namely, that Jews and peace are generally incompatible. [The Jews] are the epitome of corruption, and this is what caused the Christian West to commit inhuman acts [against them] and to violate international laws. I am referring to the [West's] scheme to expel the Palestinians from their land and hand it over to the Jews as their national homeland ... For Israel, war is an opportunity to gain sympathy by any means."
