Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh urged Muslim scholars to support resistance efforts, calling for financial support and international engagement to stop aggression against Gaza.

He emphasized the need to capitalize on the October 7 “victory” and expand it, while also advocating for “verbal Jihad” and “Jihad of the swords.”

His comments come in the wake of the October 7 massacre, the deadliest attack against Jewish people since the Nazi Holocaust, and have sparked controversy regarding Hamas’ tactics and leadership.

“The [Islamic] nation has an important role. The scholars of our nation have a pivotal role, on two fronts: The first front is supporting the resistance,” Hamas senior leader Ismail Haniyeh said.

“Brothers and sisters, the whole world is pouring weapons on the occupation. The whole world is not afraid to do so. There are air bridges from multiple capital cities which reach the occupation, as well as aircraft, and so on and so forth.”

“This has become an individual obligatory [Islamic] duty, which we must perform,” he added.

“The time has come for Jihad of the swords.”

“This is the battle for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and not the battle of the Palestinian people, or Gaza, or the people in Gaza,” he said. “The people of Gaza constitute our frontline trench for defense, as well as for offense.”

“They are not there only to defend, but also to attack,” he added.

“The time has come. Oh, sons of our Islamic nation, oh, free people of the world, there are very few historic moments like this. Do not let this moment slip away,” he said. “Our nation and our Islamic scholars have very few historic moments like this.”

“Do not let this moment slip away, because if it does, we do not know how many decades will pass before such a moment returns,” he added.

“At the beginning of this aggression, the Americans were waving a big stick in the face of the world, and even in the Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim communities in some European countries — some of their prominent Palestinian or Arab figures were summoned and were told not to raise the Palestinian flag or do anything. But the language of the same countries has now changed. Why has it changed? Because of the [Palestinian] steadfastness. Were it not for this steadfastness, the conscience of the world would have been crushed.”

“Brothers, we should build on this steadfastness,” he said. “We should hold on to the victory that took place on October 7 and build upon it.”

“The Islamic scholars can establish groups and delegations on multiple levels. These delegations would meet the officials of the countries in which they live — government officials, political parties, civil society, institutions — and fulfill their duty in their own countries. They can even lead the masses [in protests]. That’s for one. Secondly, [we should] form special delegations that will meet with the heads of state in the Arab, Muslim, and even Western countries. They should visit countries and talk about Palestine, Jerusalem, Gaza, and the need to stop the aggression against the Gaza Strip.”

“This is not just a humanitarian issue, despite its immense importance and Gaza’s need for any aid it can get. This is financial Jihad,” he said. “We should revive this principle of Islamic jurisprudence in our Islamic nation — the notion of waging Jihad with one’s life and one’s money.”

“Let us prostrate. These images were … See the guys with a new jeep. Look. Look. The Israeli jeep … Let’s do it. This is a prostration of gratitude for this victory,” Haniyeh said while watching film of the attack. “Allah, please bestow your support and glory on our people and nation. Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah be praised.”

Chairman of Hamas’ political bureau, who once served as prime minister of the Palestinian Authority, Haniyeh is now facing accusations of sacrificing his own people, all from the comfort of a luxury hotel in the far-off affluent Gulf country.

“Hamas is the only ‘army’ in history that has planned its operations deliberately to have its own civilians killed by its enemy. Its whole strategy is based on that,” former British forces commander Colonel Richard Kemp wrote.
