That quote comes from an interesting Gatestone piece by Ali Salim.
Almost no Ramadan evening goes by without tedious “historical” dramas on Al-Jazeera and the other Arab TV channels, whose objective is to brainwash viewers with anti-Semitic propaganda. They deal with the Jews’ denial of the Prophet Muhammad’s message, Jewish attempts to poison him and their betrayal of him at the Battle of the Trench in Al-Medina. Almost all the series’ end on the same note: the message is always that the fate of the Jews in the Palestine they stole from the Arabs will be the same as that Muhammad wreaked on them at Khybar, they will be slaughtered and their women and children will be sold into slavery.
That kind of incitement lends the Jews a Satanic power, it makes us think they can manipulate events around the world and are historically responsible for planning and carrying out every evil that exists. In reality, however, all it does is glorify their capabilities and achievements to the extent of turning them into a self-important legend. Thus we ourselves construct the myth of the genius of the Jews, their intellectual might and creative talents, while personally I am not entirely sure they deserve the reputation: they are mere mortals like everyone else, and often less.
In my opinion, the situation has reached such proportions within the nation of Islam that it is now a national mental illness, a collective obsession for which I see no cure. We accuse the Jews of wanting to rule the world, but one of the causes of our illness is that we expect Islam to take over the world.
Projection is natural when it comes to justifying atrocities. If you want to take over the world, claiming that someone has already done it and you’re taking it back is an excellent justification.
Just ask the Nazis. Or Imperial Japan, which massacred and enslaved countless Asians in the name of “protecting” Asia from a Western imperialism that no Asian country wanted to be protected from in that way.
Islam is obsessed with a climactic apocalyptic battle with the Jews because it has “unfinished religious business”. No amount of revisionist revert history about Islam being the original religion of mankind can undo the troubling fact that it’s second-hand goods, stolen customs and stories mapped onto a warlord’s fever dream of conquest, rapine and loot.
The only way for Islam to cover up the falseness of its origins is to exterminate Christians and Jews.
