(November 18, 2018 / MEMRI) On November 16, 2018, Sheikh Hussein Abu Ayada, head of the Tribal and Reconciliation Department of the Hamas Interior Ministry, delivered a sermon on Friday in Rafah wearing military uniforms. Addressing the military wings of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, Sheikh Abu Ayada shouted, "Tie me to a missile and shoot it in Tel Aviv … Stop humiliation."
Abu Ayada also criticized the Gulf states, claiming they oppose Hamas-Fatah reconciliation and "support the Jews in the destruction of Gaza." The sermon was filmed by Haidara Al-Sharif and excerpts were published by Jihad Al-Sharif on his Facebook page. Audio and video effects of fire and missile were included in the original.
Hussein Abu Ayada: Oh Al-Qassam Brigades, Oh Al-Quds Brigades, tie me to a missile and throw it at Tel Aviv. I'm ready. Tie me to a missile. It comes with humiliation and disgrace![…]
The Jews became accustomed to going to the United Arab Emirates and killing Al-Mabhouh, going to Tunisia and killing Al-Zawari, going anywhere they wanted … But when they arrived in the town of Bani Suheila, they went away in sacks of dead bodies. ! When they reached the city of Abasan, they came out in sacks of corpses![…]
Our "brother", the Gulf emir is opposed to Fatah-Hamas]reconciliation. They support the Jews in the destruction of Gaza. They do not want people in Gaza to memorize the Qur'an. They want them [to be addicted] hashish and opiates.[…]
We have a score to settle with the Jews. Prophet Muhammad promised victory for us.
