Khaybar, Khaybar Yet Again

When Muslim fundamentalists hold public demonstrations, they can often be heard chanting Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahoud, jaish Muhammad sawfa yaoud, that is, “Khaybar, Khaybar, o Jews, the army of Muhammad will return.”

This chant is a reminder of the battle of Khaybar in 629 A.D., when Mohammed defeated the Jews and established the prototype for non-Muslim dhimmitude, including the payment of the jizya.

Whenever Muslims get hot under the collar about Jews — which is fairly often — they chant about Khaybar. The organizers of the first Gaza Flotilla chanted it. You could hear it in in Copenhagen two years ago.

Here’s a new cover of the Khaybar chant, along with many other Islamic golden oldies, as performed at a Hamas rally in Gaza. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for uploading this video:

Watching this reminded me of "Triumph of the Will"...

I'd rather be in hell that in paradise with that bunch of hate-mongers. Still, I think lovig life will always trump a death cult.
It occurs to me that muslims use the allah akbar chant just as the nazis used the sieg heil chant. but then they were allies and have a lot in common in their beliefs.
