"O God, destroy the Jews and Americans ": Friday 26 July Sermon on Iraqi Government TV
Following is a selection of Friday sermons delivered in mosques in various Arab countries and broadcast on government TV (they don't have any other type of TV). These sermons reveal the dephth of anti-Semitism in the Moslem-Arab world today, and the hatred of Israel (and America) as a foreign body in the Dar el-Islam (the lands conquered by and once ruled by Mohammed and his successors, which, in traditional Moslem theology, are still considered an integral part of the 'ummah, the Islamic community or body politic).
Such sermons reveal that, as long as the Moslem-Arab World doesn't undergo Reformation and secularization, the chances for a true and lasting peace with Israel are nil.

Cairo Egyptian government Satellite Channel 1 Television in Arabic at 1005

mosque of
Al-Sayyidah Nafisah in the city of Cairo. The sermon was delivered by Shaykh
Al-Shahat al-Azazi of the Ministry of Religious Endowments...

"We forgot God, so he forgot us, made us forget ourselves and made a
foreign enemy control us, take a cherished piece of Islam's land, and
tortured our brothers. They [Jews] have been destined by God to be
humiliated until Doomsday. Although, they are the most humiliated and most
inferior people, they controlled us because we and them have become equal in
disobedience. God have made us stand against each other. If we want God to
return our glory to us, we should return to our god." ...O our god, the lord
of the great throne, the lord of the honourable book and the merciful
prophet, liberate Al-Aqsa mosque from the hands of the
usurpers [wild cheers by people saying Amen], O Lord, liberate Al-Aqsa
mosque from the hands of the usurpers. O Lord, liberate Al-Aqsa mosque from
the hands of the usurpers. Defeat disbelief and the disbelievers. Defeat
atheism, atheists, and their supporters. O Lord, make us victorious on
them."
