Top Hamas Official Warns America Will ‘Pay the Price’ for Supporting Israel

A top official with the terrorist group Hamas has put out a threat to Western nations and warned that America will “pay the price” for offering support and aid to Israel.

Sami Abu Zuhri, the head of the political department of Hamas abroad, called for violence against the allies of Israel, specifically attacking American and British “interests.”

In the threat, he specifically named U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

“When Blinken is justifying the killing of women and children, the sons of our nation should say to him: You are the enemy, just like Netanyahu, and you must pay the price, just like Netanyahu,” Zuhri said during a recent broadcast.

Zuhri’s comments were translated into English by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

He issued the statement on December 5 on Al-Aqsa TV, 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.

It broadcasts “news” and propaganda throughout the day.

The pause lasted from November 24 until December 1, at which point Israel resumed its ground campaign against Hamas.

The Israeli government argues that the terrorist group failed to uphold its side of the agreement.

Hamas claimed it had only soldiers left in its custody and refused to exchange them unless Israel released all Palestinian prisoners and agreed to a permanent ceasefire.

“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.

It was Al-Qassam terrorists who led the October 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 (DHS) are warning of heightened threats to public safety this holiday season.

The threat has been rising through winter due to 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.

Following the resumption of hostilities in the Gaza Strip, the United Nations has pushed for a permanent cease-fire, which the U.S. and the United Kingdom have resisted.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres invoked Article 99 of the United Nations charter to issue a letter directly to the Security Council.

The move allows the unelected bureaucrat to address the body, voice his concerns, and urge them to seek a ceasefire.

The U.S. vetoed the measure, however, and the UK abstained from voting.

The U.S. blasted the resolution as “divorced from reality” and argued that an unconditional cease-fire would prove “dangerous” and “a recipe for disaster for Israel, for Palestinians, and for the entire region.”

The General Assembly this week then adopted a resolution demanding an immediate cease-fire in Gaza and an immediate and unconditional release of all hostages.

The United States was one of 10 countries that voted against the resolution.

Nearly two dozen countries abstained, including Argentina, Bulgaria, Cameroon, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
