The administration of the Palestinian Al-Quds University on Saturday condemned Hamas-affiliated students who made a film dramatizing the stabbing and shooting of Jews.

The short film, which was posted on YouTube, is an enactment of the murder of two Jews – a settler and a rabbi. The first is stabbed to death and the other shot by masked gunmen.

The film was produced by the Islamic Bloc student group, which is affiliated with Hamas.

In is statement, the Abu Dis-based university administration “deplored and strongly condemned the celebrating of acts of violence like killing civilians or religious figures.”

It said the video was produced by an unofficial student body, without the knowledge or prior approval of the university administration.

“It is worth pointing out that Al-Quds Campus in Abu Dis is located in Area B, which means the the Israeli military authorities are in control of these localities,” the university administration said. “This hinders the exertion of law and order by the Palestinian Authority similar to that exerted in areas under its total control.”
