During an address delivered in Lebanon on November 30, 2018, Egyptian cleric Zaghloul Al-Naggar said that despite their military might, the Jews are characterized by cowardice, clinging to life, and a tendency to flee from confrontation. He said that they are therefore unfit to bear the modern weapons given to them by the United States. Al-Naggar also quoted an anti-Semitic hadith about Muslims fighting the Jews before Judgment Day. The hadith says that the rocks will call to the Muslims to kill Jews hiding behind them, and that the gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews and which they are planting a lot of, would not call to the Muslims. The sermon aired on Al-Quds TV (Lebanon).
