PA Religious Group Says Christian Zionists Worship Satan

A senior Palestinian Authority religious leader said Monday on a PA-affiliated website that Christian Zionists worship “Satan as G-d”, according to an article on the Palestinian Media Watch website.

The author of the article, Hamed Al-Tamimi, is a member of the Supreme [Islamic] Judicial Council. The Palestinian Media Watch notes that Al-Tamimi has held that position since before the election of Hamas as the new PA ruling party.

Al-Tamimi is the director of the Inter-Religion Dialogue Department, as indicated in the article byline published on PMW's website. He charges that the Christian Zionists, together with Jewish Zionists, “both agree on hatred of Islam and the Muslims and on [the goal] to destroy them”.

He goes on to slam the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem, accusing the organization of “criminal activities against the Palestinian issue and the Palestinian people”.

PA hatred of Christians is not new. The PMW noted in a previous article that “the Palestinian Authority religious leadership has been presenting its war against Israel’s existence as merely one part of its global Islamic war being fought against the Christian-Jewish West.

The PMW quotes a PA TV religious leader who announced a prayer for the murder of “infidels” – a term that includes the Christian West, it notes. “Destroy the Infidels and the Polytheists!” the prayer exhorts viewers. “Count them and kill them to the last one, and don’t leave even one.”

Nor does the Balfour Declaration escape notice in Monday’s article. “Balfour and Prime Minister Lloyd George were Christian Zionists,” said Al-Tamimi.

Al-Tamimi concluded his diatribe with an accusation against the International Christian Embassy, “who adopted Satan as G-d who drives their crazy nature. They have praised depravity and cursed virtue,” he went on, “and have reached [a point] in which forgery, deception and lying have turned into descriptions of world policy which is led by the Zionism on both its branches – the Jewish and the Christian”.
