Editor’s note: Below is the first profile of Frontpage’s new series, “Voices of Palestine,” which will illuminate the core beliefs, in their own words, of leading figures in the Palestinian death cult.

Ahmad Bahr is the deputy speaker of Hamas’s Palestinian Legislative Council. He has praised the signing of a reconciliation agreement between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party as a great triumph for the Palestinian cause against the “black agendas and malicious objectives” of Israel and the United States.

It turns out that the Hamas deputy speaker has some “malicious objectives” of his own.

The senior Hamas leader recently said on Hamas’s Al-Aqsa TV that, since Allah had transformed Jews into apes and pigs as punishment for their disobedience, “Allah imposed the nation of Muhammad, and the Jihad-waging Palestinian people, upon those siblings of apes and pigs, until we sweep them out of our land and our holy places.”

Back in April 2007, during a Friday sermon at a packed mosque broadcast on an official Palestinian Authority-controlled television station, Bahr described Jews as “the cancerous lump… in the heart of the Arab nation.” He predicted that “America and Israel will be annihilated, Allah willing.”

“Allah, take hold of the Jews and their allies,” Bahr prayed. “Allah, take hold of the Americans and their allies…. Allah, count them and kill them to the last one and don’t leave even one.”

Just one week earlier on Sudanese TV, Bahr called Muslims “the masters of the world.” Jews and Americans, he said, are “cowards, who are eager for life, while we are eager for death for the sake of Allah.”

Bahr praised his Sudanese hosts who have the blood of their own people on their hands: “Our Jihad-fighting Palestinian people salutes its brother, Sudan.”

Last year, in a speech aired on the Hamas-owned Al-Aqsa TV, Ahmad Bahr flatly condemned the very idea of negotiations, which he said “are aimed at uprooting Islam and the resistance here in Palestine, in Gaza.” He favors instead the path of martyrdom, holding out the promise of 2.5 million virgins awaiting the martyrs in a single palace in the Garden of Eden. That’s a big jump from the usual promise of 72 virgins, but apparently Bahr fervently believes that waging jihad to destroy Israel and kill Jews merits a tremendous bonus in the next life.

Bahr did not limit himself to discussing the heavenly reward of virgins for martyrdom. “When a man is having sex with his wife, he should be praying for a son who would wage Jihad for the sake of Allah,” Bahr said on Al-Aqsa TV while expounding on the lesson of a hadith (the sayings or deeds of Muhammad). “If this is the culture of the nation today, who will be able to stop it?… I say to you: As long as we continue on this path, nobody on Earth will be able to confront the resistance, or to confront the mujahideen, those who worship Allah and seek martyrdom.”

    I want new American leaders that will STOP giving tax-payer money to that stink hole (u.n.).

    They're nothing but a bunch of murderous hypocrites. And anyone who defends them are the same. You can not sit at the table of murderers and sit at the table of Peace too.

    I want new leaders that will take a righteous stand against that dark evil place. I believe in the power of prayer, so if you agree – pray too for them to be kicked out of America with no way to ever return.

    I don't use the word hate. It's a dangerous word to use (considering the judgment) but this is exceptional – I hate them with a perfect hatred. And I'll admit to that fact at the judgment. I hate them.

    As King David said of his enemies (a man after God's own heart):

    Psa 139:24 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them (bloody men) mine enemies.

    And that is what that stink hole has become filled with – bloody men. So let it be public record – I don't agree with any of my tax dollars going to that hypocritical evil dark hole. To give them even a penny – is a sin.

      I want new leaders that are actually Americans not, just by birthrights but by heart as well. I want new leaders who aren’t socialists who won’t turn my country into the laughable joke that’s become with all of the PC and liberally biased media. I want new leaders who are constitutionalists.

      I can’t believe that we actually have a division in Washington now, that “constitutionalist” is actually a term. Really? Maybe I’m over simplyfying things alittle but tell me, Isn’t believing in the constitution a prequisite for serving in any office in Washington D.C.? Well, I thought it was with the oath they take…..”I will defend and uphold the constitution….” People really don’t understand how much power that precious document has, ALOT!!!!! All we have to do is enforce it and alot of this sewage goes away, both domestic and abroad.

        "Maybe I'm over simplyfying things alittle"

        no, you're not

        That's exactly what needs to be done – so don't stop

        You're posts are valuable.

      Who Ahmad Bahr think he is? He is commanding allah to fill his personal will. He is an apostasy and an infidel. Let true muslines hunt him down and give glory to allah!

      Ollahuokbaromama

      • Beth

        That's incitement sod – to do harm. But what else should anyone expect from a true muslim?

      • Beth

        That is incitement sod – to cause bodily harm.

        Shame on you

  • StephenD

    Beth has a point. Aren't there existing laws that require one to cease and desist providing aid (including funding) to any organization that supports Terrorists as named by the State Department? Isn't HAMA one of those? Is the Fatah Government of the so called "Palestinians" supporting Hamas now with their "unity" agreement? Why and how is American Taxpayer money still going to Fatah? If they cast their lot in with Hamas, let Hamas support them. It not only is immoral for our money to continue to be used in this manner but I contend it is probably illegal as well.

    • Beth

      StephenD – "Aren't there existing laws that require one to cease and desist providing aid (including funding) to any organization that supports Terrorists as named by the State Department? "

      There are – but – where are the lawyers at?

  • Marty

    My fondest wish is that perverts and creeps such as bahar receive ten times what they wish for their "enemies." hamas is the legally elected government of 1.6 million in gaza. This gives new meaning to the notion that people get the government they richly deserve. hamas could be the first freely elected regime in modern history that won on the platform of hatred and violence. And hamas has delivered on its promises. I'm wondering what part of the gaza GDP is funding from the un and our own Department of Treasury.

    Ahmad Bahr is not alone. Although Turkey does not use similarly extreme language, it has apparently rejected Israel's offer to dig citizens out from under the post-earthquake rubble. Turkey assumes (correctly?) that its citizens would prefer to die of thirst under the buildings that collapsed on them rather than being rescued by (shudder!) Israelis.
    When an earthquake struck Haiti, Israel was the first country to set up field hospitals. The news was underreported.
    In 2005, after an earthquake struck Pakistan, Pakistan agree to accept help from Israel if it was sent through a third party. Pakistan was afraid Israel would get credit where credit was due.
    Why should Ahmad Bahr be different?

    • Beth

      I believe Israel has the right to adopt the attitude "if your allah is so great – let him save you"

      But Israel is above that (i know – just sayin)

    • http://www.jochnowitz.net George Jochnowitz

      Turkey has changed its mind! It will accept Israeli aid after all.

    To Mr Liar Richard Falk, if you cared about Palestinian children, you would condem Palestinian child abuse. Oooops, that dont fit your propaganda. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/
    Freed Terrorist Urges Children to be Martyrs
    A failed suicide bomb terrorist, freed in the trade for Shalit, urges schoolchildren to succeed where she failed and become martyrs.

    Isn't it time, Richard Falk condem Palestinian settler terrorism violence.
    Heck, Falk cant even comdem the Palestinians when they massacre the Fogel family and behead a 3 month old Jewish baby. http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_context=2&x
    9 times more Jewish civilians have been murdered by Palestinians
    in the West Bank than Palestinians murdered by Jews.

      "To Mr Liar Richard Falk, if you cared about Palestinian children, you would condem Palestinian child abuse"

      Absolutely!

  • Dan Kelso

    To see Abbas and Hamas celebrating with terrorists really made my understand who the real peace loving people are.
    Then to see Palestinians Arabs urging renewed terror attacks and the butchering of Jews.
    Indeed, when it comes to pure lust for Jewish blood, the Palestinians outshine virtually any competitors.
    Note, Falk shows no concern for Jewish civilian rights, like going to a discotheque or pizza parlor and being blown up by the Pals she frets over. Or being able to go to school without worrying that a missile deliberately aimed at civilians will land on your school.
    Falk seems to be silent on the Palestinians racist genocidal media calling for the killing of Jews and talking how Israel will be eliminated.
    Here is the Palestinian media in their own words? http://www.palwatch.org

  • Dan Kelso

    When it comes to the massacre of Kristen Luken by Palestinian Islamo Nazis, Falk is silent.

    Mideast strife isn't all Israel's fault, only about 99.998%. If the Jews over there will just behave themselves and give away yet more land, everything will be just dandy. Jihad really means flower power. Ghandi, Thoreau, and Emerson would have heartily approved of Sharia law. (Justice Kagan seems to. . . .)

    One thing the Muslims possess in abundant quantity as compared to other faiths is faith. Out of faith comes another desirable quality: Patience. Israel has been beating them black and blue for the last 60 years, and yet, Muslims world over believe that one day Israel is going to tire, and one day it is going to fall.
    It is too easy to laugh at Ahmad Bahr's statements, but the thing to notice is, his deep faith in his ideas. The recent events indicate that what he is talking is not sheer fantasy; it can actually happen.
    Both USA and Israel have demonstrated signs of weakness. USA has been threatened by a country like Pakistan with its nukes. Iran has been threatening USA since decades. Israel has released over 1000 hardcore terrorists for one soldier; something it would not have done earlier. The new generation of Israelis has not suffered the holocaust, and no wonder some of them do not believe it actually happened. Left wingers in Israel are becoming stronger day by day, and this poses a serious threat for Israel's existence itself.
    Ahmad Bahr may be a person of very low IQ, but he has deep faith, and is willing to fight a long battle; he seems to be having his way.

    • Beth

      you have pointed out a very strong truth "has deep faith" of which the masses have yet to grasp – the power that is in it.

      Nor have the 'powers' grasped how that ''''faith''''' can turn on it (the ''''powers''''').

      I believe there are many (of those in power) who see it – and don't know what to do about it. Shame on them then. They shouldn't be sitting in the seats they're sitting in. The seats they're sitting in – requires a leader.

  • Ghostwriter

    Don't forget Ahmad Bahr is a monster of Hitlerian proportions who wants to wipe out both Israel and the United States simply because we don't worship the same religion that he does. We need to wake up and start calling these people for what they are,bloodthirsty killers.

  • Brujo Blanco

    Terrorist feed off weakness. Terrorists consider any conciliation n matter ho small to be a victory. Our problem is that our enemies have no rules but we do.

    Our gov't isn't going to tell the truth about Islam so the job falls to us. The next election will tell much about the direction our gov't will continue to drift. Islam is a danger to freedom loving people every where. Yet, to be honest, when Muslim people have an opportunity to vote, they vote overwhelmingly for "historical Islam". We need men like Thomas Jefferson in the white house who will say enough is enough and send our military forces out to tell the Islamist to go to hell and if you touch one American it will be like throwing rocks at a hornet's nest. Islam wants concessions (and usually gets them) but makes no effort to be good Americans and to stand for what is right. Quite frankly, with the oath of allegiance that immigrants are supposed to take, it is impossible for Muslims to come to this country and become a citizen. Something is dreadfully wrong with allowing enemies into this country knowing they plot for our destruction. Look at the mess Minnesota has because of its immigration policies. The Islam that cries moderation is the same Islam that carried out the attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center. Do I advocate violence against American Muslims? No, but they should be held to the same standard as all other Americans. Can you imagine what would happen if a bunch of Presbyterians were carrying out terrorists attacks in NYC? Come on leaders, guide our nation. If not, we will replace you come election time
