The Translating Jihad blog found a choice Friday sermon published in the Gulf newspaper Al-Raya. Let's go right to the good parts:
Al-Bakri: Our Conflict with the Jews Is Ideological; Whoever Says Otherwise Is Mistaken

Shaykh ‘Abdallah al-Bakri, the Friday speaker [i.e. he who leads the Friday prayers] at the Hamid Ibn Khalid Al Thani Mosque [Doha, Qatar], said that the monumental events through which the ummah [Islamic nation] is currently passing should evoke its sense of mission and awaken its determination.

"Whoever is fortunate enough to have read the Qur’an and sunnah knows without a doubt that the conflict between us and the Jews, as well as with the Christians, is ideological more than anything else. This is the case with all of the enemies of Islam. Whoever errs on this point has the left the side of reason, and has failed to understand the truth, as the Most High has said: “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans” [Qur’an 5.82], as well as, “Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion” [Qur’an 2.120]. Whoever wants to interpret the conflict with them [i.e. the Jews] in any way other than on this divine foundation, will continue to run after every mirage which appears on the horizon, but they will never obtain [even] one drop of water.

"The prudent reader of history understands that the Jews of yesterday, whose infamies are told to us in the Qur’an, were but bad ancestors to even worse descendants. They are infidels, corrupters of the word, worshipers of the calf, murderers of the prophets, slanderers of the message, enemies of the Islamic call, breakers of agreements, (even) the dregs of mankind. As our Lord said of them: “…those who incurred the curse of Allah and his wrath, those of whom some He transformed into apes and swine, those who worshipped evil;- these are (many times) worse in rank, and far more astray from the even path!" [Qur’an 5.60].

(Al-Bakri) said: “These are the Jews, an unbroken chain of vileness, craftiness, obstinacy, injustice, wickedness, and corruption: “…they (ever) strive to do mischief on the earth. Allah loveth not those who do mischief” [Qur’an 5.64]. They are an unbroken chain of treachery, deception, baseness, and inferiority. They (even) dared to attack the position of the divine: “Allah hath heard the taunt of those who say: ‘Truly, Allah is indigent and we are rich!’ [Qur’an 3.181], and “The Jews say: '(Allah)'s hand is tied up.' Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for the (blasphemy) they utter” [Qur’an 5.64]. They charged the Apostle with terrible things, accusing him of the most hideous crimes. They annoyed Moses, deceived ‘Isa [Jesus], killed Zakariyah and Yahya, and tried to kill Muhammad—they worked magic on him and poisoned him: “Is it that whenever there comes to you an apostle with what ye yourselves desire not, ye are puffed up with pride?- Some ye called impostors, and others ye slay!” [Qur’an 2.87]. This is their reality. It is not strange to see them commit any sort of crime or vile deed. What is strange is to see Muslims who make agreements with them or trust them, or run after their mirage and deception.”
There's the love and respect for religions that we are told so much about!
