I mean, what would Satan do?
Following are excerpts from an interview with Sheik Bassam Al-Kayed, head of the Palestinian Islamic Scholars Association in Lebanon, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on February 1, 2012:Hey, if Allah put us here, then he must want us here, right? Sounds like Bassam saying that Allah purposefully inflicts pain on Muslims. Either that, or Jews are Allah's chosen people and the Muslims deserve to be punished. How else can we be so powerful?
Bassam Al-Kayed: The Jew is a satan in human form. Allah inflicted the Jews upon humanity in its entirety, and especially upon the nation of Islam, including the early prophets and the Prophet Muhammad. The Jew is a satan in human form. We could almost say that the satanic jinn take lessons from them.
What they do is very peculiar. It transgresses all boundaries. They attribute no sanctity to anything that is sacred, to any treaty or agreement. They violate all the international laws, all the human norms, and all the Islamic and man-made laws. They violate all values. They are deterred by nothing but force.
Strange theology, but I'm OK with it.
OK, gotta go teach some Jinn.
