Islamic Jihad Spokesman Daoud Shihab went on Lebanon television and said Israeli soldiers use the blood from Palestinian children to bake bread.
He explained that the bread was part of a religious edict handed down by Israeli rabbis that demanded Jewish people cook with blood. “I would just like to remind you of the ruling by the Israeli rabbis, who have instructed the soldiers to knead the bread that the Jews eat with the blood of Arab and Palestinian children,” he said.
Shibab did not elaborate on his sourcing, nor could Breitbart News find this particular ruling Shibab spoke about. Shibab used the ruling as reasoning to eliminate the Jewish population of Israel.
The Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine was formed in 1979 and considered a terrorist group by the United States in 1997. While Shihab makes outrageous statements about Israel, his group made headlines in March when they shot over 100 rockets into Israel after the Israeli army killed three of its members. However, the army said the men were killed because they “fired a mortar at its soldiers.”
It is important to note the Islamic Jihad is not Hamas, nor are they affiliated. They share similar ideologies, but are separate groups. Since Islamic Jihad is not in charge in Gaza, they can get away with more than Hamas. However, despite financial backing from Iran, Islamic Jihad does not have the same military power as Hamas. The terrorist group is not as influential as Hamas, but they are spreading their name in the public. Shibab said the group runs three elementary schools and plan to build more.
