Al Jazeera sermon: "Allah, kill all the Jews"

Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi had some garden-variety genocidal Jew-hatred and incitement at that favorite of moderate Arab TV channels, Al-Jazeera.

Video clip here.

Excerpts from MEMRI:
I address my first message to the aggressor Jews, those arrogant plunderers, who act arrogantly toward the servants of Allah in the land of Allah.

...We wait for the revenge of Allah to descend upon them, and, Allah willing, it will be by our own hands: "Fight them, Allah will torment them by your hands, and bring them to disgrace, and will assist you against them, and will heal the hearts of the believers, and you will still the anger of your hearts." This is my message to the treacherous Jews, who have never adhered to what is right, or been true to their promises, who violate each time the promises them make to you.

...Oh Allah, take your enemies, the enemies of Islam. Oh Allah, take the Jews, the treacherous aggressors. Oh Allah, take this profligate, cunning, arrogant band of people. Oh Allah, they have spread much tyranny and corruption in the land. Pour Your wrath upon them, oh our God. Lie in wait for them. Oh Allah, You annihilated the people of Thamoud at the hand of a tyrant, and You annihilated the people of 'Aad with a fierce, icy gale. Oh Allah, You annihilated the people Thamoud at the hand of a tyrant, You annihilated the people of 'Aad with a fierce, icy gale, and You destroyed the Pharaoh and his soldiers – oh Allah, take this oppressive, tyrannical band of people. Oh Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people. Oh Allah, do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.
There's plenty more, like castigating Arab nations for not destroying Israel and calling on a boycott of the "Zionist" Marks and Spencer and Starbucks locations in Qatar ("Here in Qatar, we have a branch of Marks and Spencer, which regularly dedicates its Saturday revenue to Israel.") But, really, once you see the punch line of destroying all the Jews, what else do you need to know?

The video shows a large and very receptive audience during this entire sermon.
