Hana’a Daoud lists herself as a UNRWA teacher. Many of her Facebook friends also list themselves as UNRWA teachers. She praises Hamas, advocates killing Jews, and spreads antisemitism online.
Post 1: Praises Hamas
Daoud endorsed and praised Hamas in this May 2021 post in which she shared a video of Hamas militants at the end of that month’s hostilities. Daoud’s caption praises the military wing of Hamas as “capable” and “competent” and calls for God to give “strength” to Hamas and to “raise the value of Islam thanks to” Hamas.
You’re definitely capable. You’re just as competent as Abu Obeida. May Allah give them strength and raise the value of Islam thanks to them.
Post 2: Calls to Kill Jews
Daoud endorses killing Jews in this May 2021 post about Muslims fighting Jews to “come and kill” them. The post also refers to Allah’s promise of “victory” to the Muslims, proclaiming that “Jerusalem is ours, and Gaza is ours,” thus advocating religious war against Israel in fulfillment of God’s promise to the Muslims.
“The Last Hour will not come until the Muslims fight against the Jews, until a Jew will hide himself behind a stone or a tree, and the stone or the tree will say: ‘O Muslim, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him.”
This is what Allah has promised us, and victory is ours, and Jerusalem is ours, and Gaza is ours.
Post 3: Rejoices in Death and Injury to Jews
In this post, Daoud rejoiced in injuries to Jewish worshippers caused by a staircase collapse in a Jewish synagogue which killed two and injured over 160 on the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. Shockingly, her post also hoped for the injured to die. Daoud’s comment “O Allah! May the ground tremble beneath your feet, and not a single one of them remain,” seems to be a genocidal prayer for all the Jews to die. One of Daoud’s Facebook friends commented: “Even the earth can’t stand them and it hates them and their filth.” Another wrote: “O Allah, kill them one by one, don’t leave any of them.”
Dozens of people are injured as a stairway inside a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem collapses… O Allah! May the ground tremble beneath your feet, and not a single one of them remain.
Post 4: Jews are Cowardly, Foolish
In May 2021, Daoud portrayed Jews as foolish cowards.
1. The Jews do not face [their enemies], they fight them from afar, from behind obstacles… The Almighty said: “They will not fight you (even) together, except in fortified townships, or from behind walls.”
2. The Jews are the most #terrifying people and the people that fear war the most. The Almighty said: Strong is their fighting (spirit) amongst themselves: thou wouldst think they were united, but their hearts are divided: that is because they are a people devoid of wisdom.
