Top Hamas Official: Jews Use Blood in their Passover Matzos


Once again, Hamas has used the centuries old “matzah blood libel”, that Jews use the blood of non-Jews to make matzah for Passover. This time, the blood libel was used by top Hamas representative in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan, who claimed that Israelis kill children and linked this to the blood libel.

The remarks were made in an interview on the Lebanese Al-Quds TV channel on July 28. The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated the interview.
