PA Sermon:Jews and Americans are behind all chaos in Saudi Arabia Another sermon full of peace, tolerance, and sanity from the PA. (Yes, that was a sarcastic sentence.) This is noteworthy for its reassertion of the radical Muslim insistence that rule must be according to the Sharia, as well as for its naked hostility and preposterous fantasizing regarding Jews and Americans. From IMRA: Gaza Palestine Satellite Channel in Arabic, official television station of the Palestinian Authority, carries on 16 July 2004 at 0958 GMT a live sermon from Shaykh Zayid Al Nuhayyan mosque in Gaza.... Shaykh Ibrahim Mudayris delivers the sermon, which he devotes to the theme of trust.... The imam also says that fulfillment of trust goes with governing in accordance with the shari'ah. He cites the Koranic verse that says: "And, when you govern among people you must do so fairly." He then says: "Trust was lost when we the rulers stopped ruling as revealed by God. There are more than 60 Muslim states. How many of them rule as revealed by God? If the rulers had lost this trust, where is the trust of the ulema?' The imam says: "Jews rejoiced the death of the religious scholar Shaykh Abd-al-Aziz Bin-Baz, may his soul rest in peace. They rejoiced his death, believing that the field is now open before them. Here they are trying to spread chaos in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Indeed, Jews are responsible for that. Jews and Americans are behind all this chaos in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, because it is the country of the prophet, may the peace and blessings of God be upon him, and also because they want to avenge for their ancestors, who were expelled and killed." What's that? Jews and Americans want to avenge their ancestors, who were expelled and killed? It is refreshing that Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris acknowledges, and assumes that his hearers will take for granted, that Jews and Christians were indeed expelled from the Arabian Peninsula and killed by Muslims. But the idea that any American actually knows that, or cares to avenge it, is, well, just as farfetched as everything the Sheikh says. The imam concludes with a general prayer to God for success in the fulfillment of the trust. He prays: "O God, preserve our country and all Muslim countries from every evil. O God, preserve the country of the two holy mosques and the country of the night journey by the prophet, may the peace and blessings of God be upon him. O God preserve holy Al-Azhar from the filth of the Crusaders and Jews."
