A wave of brazen support for Hamas has swept Britain since the October 7 massacre both in radical mosques and on social media channels with huge audiences, the JC can reveal.
Extremist imams in Bradford and Manchester have used their pulpits to openly attack Jews and lead prayers for a Hamas victory, with one asking Allah to “purify” the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem from “the filth of the Jews”.
And London-based broadcasters Moataz Matar and Osama Gaweesh celebrated the Hamas atrocities on October 7. Matar, who has more than four million subscribers, called it “a day filled with pride and glory”.
A dossier containing details of the pair’s activities supplied to counter-terrorism police by an informant in April was not acknowledged or acted upon, the JC has learnt.
The revelations raise serious questions for the police’s claims that they would take a “zero tolerance approach” to apparent antisemitic hate crime or public support for Hamas, a proscribed terrorist group.
This year, we want to do more to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
We know that as we bless Israel this year, God will bless us, just as He promised in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Now is the time to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
