A sermon broadcast last Friday on PA (Palestinian Authority) television called for the subjugation of all Christian countries under Islam and the extermination of every Jew.
The Moslem cleric, Ibrahim Mudayris, told Palestinians, â€œThe day will come and we shall rule America, Britain, we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews.â€ According to Mudayris, unlike the Christian countries, Jews cannot be placed under subjugation. He told Palestinian television viewers that the only fate awaiting Jews is death by extermination.
The sermonâ€™s content clearly indicates that the PA under Mahmoud Abbas has not met its commitment to stem anti-Semitic and anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian media. The clericâ€™s sermon is as virulent and hateful as any of the Jew hatred published by the Nazi German regime, making the PA one of the primary proponents of anti-Semitic propaganda in the world today.
In the sermon, which was translated by Itmar Marcus and Barbara Cook of Palestinian Media Watch, Ibrahim Mudayris reiterated many of the often-repeated PA justifications for the anticipated genocide, including the following hate message:
1. The Jews have inherently evil character traits that Muhammad warned Muslims about in the Koran.
2. The Jews have been the source of conflict throughout all of history: â€œThe Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering.â€
3. The persecution of Jews throughout history is presented as natural responses of self-defense by numerous countries against the evil of the Jews. Britain, France, Portugal, Czarist Russia, Nazi Germany, all persecuted and/or expelled Jews â€“ as acts of self-defense and revenge.
4. Zionism was created by Britain in order solve its Jewish problem by sending them to Israel.
5. God has predetermined that the Jewish problem will be solved with the extermination of the Jews.
6. God has predetermined that the Christian -Islam interactions will end with today's Christian countries under Islam.
7. Israel has no right to exist and will be destroyed.
A partial transcript of the sermon reads as follows:
Koran: â€œIndeed you will find that of all mankind, those with the strongest hatred of the believers are the Jews and the pagansâ€ al-Maada : 82 [the Table]
Mudayris: "There is no god but Allah, Who warned His Prophet and Beloved [Muhammad] of the Jews; who murdered their prophets, and falsified their Bible; who were corrupt and corrupted throughout their existence; [and] violated their treaties and agreements. Hundreds of verses about them came down [from the heavens] and appeared in the Koran. And in them it is told of the corruption of their qualities and their evil intentionsâ€¦
Had Allah not protected your Beloved, he would have been a victim of the Jewsâ€™ treachery, he would have been one of the thousands of prophets that were murdered by the Jewsâ€¦
This [May 15, the day the PA marks Israelâ€™s Independence] is the hardest day of remembrance for the Palestinian people â€¦ because with the loss of Palestine, the Arab nation was lost, and with the establishment of the false State of Israel, the whole Muslim nation was lost.
With the establishment of the State of Israel, the entire Muslim nation was lost because Israel is a cancer that spread in the body of the Islamic nation; because the Jews are a virus similar to AIDS, from which the entire world is suffering. This has been proven in history. Read the history! I donâ€™t want you to read the Koran, because the Koran is clear and permanent and we all believe it, but for those who do not believe the Koran, we say to them: read the history...
Youâ€™ll find that Jews behind every conflict on Earth. The suffering of nations? The Jews are behind it! Ask Britain! What did it do to the Jews at the beginning of the sixth century? What did they do to the Jews? [They] chased them down them, made them suffer, and prevented them from entering for more than 300 consecutive years...
Ask France what it did to the Jews! They made them suffer, chased them down and burned their Talmud, for the conflicts that they [i.e. Jews] tried to ignite in France in the period of Louis XIX. Ask Portugal what it did to the Jews!
Ask Czarist Russia - who hosted the Jews and they plotted to murder the Czar! And they were massacred again and again. Donâ€™t ask Germany what it did to the Jews, since the Jews are the ones who provoked the Nazis so the world would go to war against it.
On the day the Jews provoked â€“ through the Zionist movement â€“ the nations of the world to fight Germany economically, and to boycott German goods; on the day that they incited Russia, Britain, France and Italy, the anger of the Germans toward the Jews increased significantly, and what happened â€“ happened at that time so that [Holocaust] Remembrance Day is commemorated by the Jews to this day.
For they are doing worse things than what was done to them in the era of the Nazi war. It is likely some of them were killed, and it is likely some of them were burned, but theyâ€™re exaggerating the description [of the Holocaust] in order to gain [the attention of] world media, and world sympathy.
The worst criminal acts in history were perpetrated upon the Jews, but they are not worse than those perpetrated upon the inhabitants of Palestine. What was done to the Jews is a crime, but isn't what they are doing in Palestine a crimeâ€¦?
The Jews did not have a national home on this earth because they are liars! They are liars if they say that the establishment of a national home in Palestine appears in their faith. They were never interested in and never considered the establishment of a national home in Palestine itself. They were interested in a national home in any place at all, any place at all...
Britain is the one that promised them the establishment of a national home on the land of Palestine. Why? Because Britain was disgusted by the Jewish presence there, in Britain, and wanted to be relieved of them, and therefore promised to establish a national home in Palestineâ€¦
The right [of the Jews] stems from their power, but our right - or our power - stems from our right. The rights of the Jews stem from their power, and power is transientâ€¦
The Palestinian nation is the strongest on earth. Look at all the civilizations! Look at all the states! Look at all the civilizations and forces and empires. Where did Great Britain disappear? Where did the Czarâ€™s Russia disappear? Where did France, which almost ruled the world, disappear? Where did Nazi Germany, which massacred millions and ruled the earth, disappear? Where did all those forces disappear? In Allahâ€™s will, He will get rid of the USA like he got rid of them. He caused Russia to disappear within a day, and He is the one Who can remove the USA and bring it down, and so He shall do it, in Allahâ€™s will...
We [Muslims] have ruled the world [in the past] and a day will come, by Allah, and we shall rule the world [again]. The day will come and we shall rule America, Britain, we shall rule the entire world, except the Jews. The Jews will not live under our rule agreeably permanently, since they have been treacherous in nature throughout history.
A day will come when all shall rest from the Jews, even the tree and the stone, which have suffered from them. Listen to your Beloved [Muhammad], who tells you about the most dire end awaiting the Jews. The tree and the stone want the Muslim to bring every Jew to his end. You all know the Hadith." [PA TV, May 13, 2005]
Mudayris here is referring to following Hadith:
â€œThe Hour [Resurrection] will not come until the Muslims make war against the Jews and kill them, and until a Jew hiding behind a rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: â€˜Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!â€
He explains that the fulfillment of the often-preached Hadith means the extermination of every last Jew is Allahâ€™s will and is, thus, inevitable.
