Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon in Rades, Tunisia, which was delivered by Sheik Ahmad Al-Suhayli, which aired on Hannibal TV on November 30, 2012:
Sheik Ahmad Al-Suhayli: Ever since the days of the prophets, the Jews have been obstinate. They rebelled against the decrees and laws of Allah. Whenever Allah commanded them to do something, they did the exact opposite.
The Jews continued with their deviations and transgressions. Those accursed Zionist Jews even had the audacity to slay the prophets of Allah. Allah said: “They were struck with humiliation and misery, and they drew upon themselves the wrath of Allah, because they rejected His signs, slayed the prophets without just cause, and rebelled and transgressed.” In the days of Allah’s prophet David, a group of Jews was transformed into apes, because they violated the laws of Allah.
The Koran exposed the evil psyche of the Jews.
When they violated the treaties and agreements that the Prophet Muhammad made with them in Al-Madina, he banished them and drove them out of Al-Madina. In modern times, this accursed gang gathered once again in Palestine, by means of deception and trickery. Then came the Balfour Declaration. It was Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary back then, in 1917, who gathered the Jews in Palestine and Jerusalem. Then he called upon the foreign powers to help [the Jews], providing them with money and weapons.
This Balfour Declaration was a tragedy and a catastrophe for the Palestinians in particular, and for the Arab and Islamic nation in general. He promised a land that he did not own to people who do not deserve it – because it is not the land of the Jews – to pave the way for the racist Zionist movement to rule Palestine and Jerusalem. Indeed, that is what happened.
Look at those Zionists. After a bus in Tel Aviv was blown up by a martyrdom seeker, they hastened to seek a truce, when the Arab and Islamic peoples showed their resolve, and stood as one, defending the violated honor of the Islamic nation.
Brothers, the Arab Spring that the media talks about will not truly be a spring unless we support our brothers in Gaza, and stand united with them, in order to drive those Jews out of Palestine and to liberate Jerusalem.
Oh Allah, just like you destroyed the people of ‘Aad and Thamud, destroy this gang of Jews. Strike them with a deterring force that will destroy them.
Oh Allah, you know everything that those accursed Jews have done – the corruption they spread on earth, their diverting of people from your path, and their humiliation of your servants. Strike them with a resounding blow, and do not leave a single one of them. Oh Lord, rip them asunder, and disperse them throughout the land, as you did with their followers, because they have invoked the sanctities of Islam. “Soon the unjust will know what vicissitude will befall them.” “Oh Lord, do not leave a single one of them on Earth, for if you do, they will lead your servants astray, and they will beget none but sinners and infidels.” Allah, make the wombs of their women barren, and dry up the loins of their men. Strike them with Your hatred and wrath, oh You who delivers harsh punishment and torment.
Of course, there was an immediate reaction from the majority of moderate, peace-loving Tunisians against this naked example of Jew-hate. The TV station was picketed, outraged editorials were published, Tunisia brought Sheikh Suhayli up on charges of "defamation of religion" and he was forced to issue an apology.
Just kidding! The crowd just nodded as if he is speaking obvious wisdom about Jews having turned into apes, and his praying for Allah to utterly destroy every Jew on the planet was received s if it is the most normal thing in the world for a Muslim sheikh to say.
Because, apparently, it is.
