Nov. 11 Statement by Pat Robertson on The 700 Club

This statement was made by Pat Robertson on his television program, The 700 Club, on Nov. 11, 2002. It came after a segment focusing on a report from MEMRI (The Middle East Media Research Institute). The header reads: Based on Koranic Verses, Interpretations, Traditions, and Muslim Clerics, The Jews Are The Descendants of Apes, Pigs, and Other Animals.

PAT ROBERTSON: Somehow I wish the Jews in America would wake up, open their eyes and read what is being said about them. This is worse than the Nazis. Adolf Hitler was bad, but what the Muslims want to do to the Jews is worse. The idea that you are going to make peace with the Muslim world by giving them territory is an absolute illusion. Yet, at the same time the so-called "doves" in America will criticize anybody who says anything against Islam, including me, if I say something that Islam is an erroneous religion, I get criticized by the Anti-Defamation League. You just say, when are you guys going to open your eyes and see who your enemy is? Those people want to destroy Jews. The Koran teaches that the end of the world will not come until every Jew is killed by the Muslims. The Muslims must eliminate every single Jew before there will be a final conclusion of this world and the next kingdom comes into being. That is taught in the Koran, plus the fact, they are like apes and pigs. This is not exactly conducive to peace and brotherhood.
