Former Hamas Official Says Jews Make Hamentashen Out Of Blood


A former Hamas official echoed classic anti-Semitic themes when he claimed that Jews cook non-Jewish blood into the popular Hamesntashen Purim pastry, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) reported.

Writing in the Arab Ma’an news service, Mustafa al-Lidawi wrote that Purim is a “holiday that the people of Europe hated and detested and wished that the Jews would leave their countries so they could be saved from their wickedness.”

“This is because the Jews who lived in Europe would always bake a large pastry on the occasion of the holiday, and everyone would eat it. However, this pastry was mixed with the blood of a victim they chose from among those who were not Jews. Most of the time the victim was a little boy,” continued Lidawi.

  1. Did he mention if they use Arab blood. Maybe some Arabs will fear walking by bakeries for they may be snatched up from use in hamentashen.

  2. We shouldn’t even repeat these ludicrous claims. Nobody believes them anyway, so why even bring up the old blood libels.

  3. The sick minds of the blood libelers know no limits. Syrian defense minister Tlaas had an elaborate description of an imaginary device that Jews used to extract as much blood as possible from their victims – this latest lie is not nearly as imaginative as Tlaas’s libel.

  4. Let’s do DNA testing and see whose DNA is found in the hamantash. Even the shevaim couldn’t have fooled Yaakov, because yaakov would have been able to do dna testing on yossefs garment and seen that the DNA s blood didn’t match that of Yosef’s.

    • Great idea! That will settle the debate once and for all! After all, chocolate and poppy seeds have far fewer chromosomes than humans…
