Hamas Official Issues Threat to Blinken: America Must ‘Pay the Price’ for Gaza Blood, According to Report

December 15, 2023








A top Hamas official has called for violence against the allies of Israel, specifically attacking American and British “interests” as a price for the deaths of Gaza citizens.

“When (Secretary of State Antony) Blinken is justifying the killing of women and children, the sons of our nation should say to him: You are the enemy, just like (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu, and you must pay the price, just like Netanyahu,” Sami Abu Zuhri, the head of the political department of Hamas abroad, said during a recent broadcast.

Zuhri made his comments, which the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated, on Al-Aqsa TV on Dec. 5, a few days after the end of the temporary pause that allowed Hamas and Israel to exchange hostages and prisoners, respectively.

Hamas runs the Al-Aqsa TV network in the Gaza Strip, playing news and propaganda throughout the day.

“If our nation thinks that the heroic acts of Al-Qassam Brigades release it from its responsibility — that is a misconception and a mistaken assessment that should be discarded,” he continued. “The Al-Qassam Brigades are doing what they must do, and the people of Gaza are as steadfast as they must be.”

The Al-Qassam Brigades is the military wing of Hamas, which led the Oct. 7 attack on Israel that killed 1,200 people.

“Now it is our nation’s turn to pressure the Americans to stop this war,” Zuhri argued. “We need violent acts against American and British interests everywhere, as well as the interests of all the countries that support the occupation.”

“They must pay a price for the blood of our women and children who are being killed in cold blood in the streets of Gaza,” he added. “They must pay a price so that they know that Gaza is not alone, and that when they gave the order to kill, they should have been prepared to pay the necessary price.”

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security are warning of heightened threats to public safety this holiday season and through winter associated with the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. The FBI says it is “closely monitoring threats to public safety during the holiday season which may be amplified” by the war.
