US media has reported on a video said to encourage Palestinians to launch knife attack on Jews in Israel. According to a report in theBlaze:
Oct. 7, 2015 An outrageous new video encouraging Palestinians to launch knife attacks on Jews was posted by Hamas on social media Tuesday.
The dramatization, which called an Palestinians to begin a new ‘intifada’ and ‘free Al-Aqsa’ (that is, Jerusalem), came in a week in which Palestinians attacked multiple Jewish Israelis, including a deadly stabbing spree in Jerusalem Saturday night killing two rabbis.
YouTube removed the video from Hamas’ channel Wednesday morning, noting that it had violated YouTube’s policy of promoting hate speech. However, the pro-Israel blog Elder of Ziyon posted it again to highlight Hamas’ incitement to violence.
The Arab attacker puts a knife to the throat of his second victim, wearing a traditional Jewish prayer shawl.

The actions of the ‘Jews’ in the video upset a nearby Arab man wearing a keffiyeh scarf around his neck, who then brandishes a knife and waits surreptitiously for the evil caricatures to walk past.

Four days later Ismail Haniyeh, the head of Hamas in Gaza, declared an “Intifada” (uprising) and called for further violence promising that “Gaza will fulfill its role in the Jerusalem intifada and it is more than ready for confrontation.
The Hamas charter says that it is “one of the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine” and soon after Hamas took over the Gaza strip, Muslim Brotherhood representatives traveled to Gaza from Egypt through the newly-opened border to review Hamas military formations. A Hamas journalist has acknowledged the role that the “international Muslim Brotherhood” has played in providing funds for the purchase of weapons and Hamas is known to be supported financially and politically by the global Muslim Brotherhood. A Muslim Brotherhood spokesman revealed that a coalition of London-based Muslim groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood, were behind the mass demonstrations staged to protest Israeli actions in the 2008 Gaza war and the Global Muslim Brotherhood and its Turkish affiliates were also intimately involved, along with the Turkish government, in the June 2010 Gaza flotilla that was involved in a violent altercation with Israeli naval forces. Following a period of seeming ascension related to the period of Egyptian rule by the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization was forced to scramble to try and find other state sponsors after Mohamed Morsi was deposed as President. In September 2013, it appeared that Hamas had succeeded in re-establishing close ties with Iran. In January 2013, Israeli intelligence sources claimed that Turkey has replaced Iran as the chief source of Hamas financing.
