"Oh Allah, Completely Destroy and Shatter the Jews"
Child: "Oh Allah, completely destroy and shatter the Jews. Oh Allah, torment them with a disease that has no cure or remedy. Send a thunderbolt down upon them from Heaven. Oh Allah, torment them with every kind of torment. Oh Allah, send upon them flocks of ababil birds  that will pelt them with stones of baked clay, and turn them into straw that has been eaten. Oh Allah, turn their women into widows - just like Muslim women were widowed. Allah, turn their children into orphans - just like Muslim children were orphaned. Oh Allah, bless the efforts of the mujahideen. Oh Allah, bring victory upon us soon. Amen, amen. Peace and blessings upon you."
"The Understanding Will Come... This Is One Stage in Becoming a Future Preacher"
TV host: "Well done. Well done. I let him end the program on purpose. Of course, he memorized this, and the understanding will come, Allah willing. But this is one stage in becoming a future preacher."

"Heroes of Gaza... You Were Victorious, You Were Not Defeated, When You Refused to Surrender to the Accursed Jews"
Boy 1: "Omar [Ibn Al-Khattab] said: 'Our dead go to Paradise, while their dead go to the Hellfire.'
"Heroes of Gaza, you were victorious, you were not defeated, when you forced the enemy to withdraw in humiliation. You were victorious, you were not defeated, when you refused to surrender to the accursed Jews.
"'Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims will kill them, and the Jews will hide behind stones and trees, and the stones and the trees will say: Oh Muslims, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him' - except for the gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews." [...]
"The Zionist Aggression... Will Continue Until the Day Comes When the Stones and the Trees Say: 'Oh Muslims, There Is a Jew Behind Me, Come and Kill Him"
Boy 2: "The Zionist aggression continues its attacks on Gaza with warplanes. This war will never be over. It will continue until the day comes when the stones and the trees say: 'Oh Muslims, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'
Boy 3 [in English]: "In the name of Allah, the most gracious, the most merciful. Actually what is happening in our days to Muslims of the blockade - murder and displacement is not a new thing, and it is not the end. This is a good omen I give you to restore hope again - that Allah's victory is near and his promise is going to be fulfilled, no matter what the circumstances are. Allah has answered the supplication of the Prophet, peace be upon him, for the Muslims' nation to be protected from being completely wiped out. However, some of the nation may face difficulties, but the [Islamic] nation will never pass away. If what is happening now in the Gaza Strip makes us really have great sympathy for the present [unintelligible], we should know that Muslims suffered more than that in the past.
"Also, we have been ordered to vanquish the Jews and to evacuate them. Allah's judgment must be carried out, so [unintelligible] their final defeat entirely by Muslims. Then Al-Aqsa will return, the Islamic caliphate will also return, and Jesus Christ will descend and kill the Antichrist - that will actually be the end."

"They Composed These Black Protocols Themselves, In Order To Destroy the Inner Power of Our Nation"
Salama Abd Al-Qawi: "Read, if you will, that black book, in which they included those Protocols of the Elders of Zion. They composed these black protocols themselves, in order to destroy the inner power of our nation. They composed these protocols in 1897 in Switzerland, in their black congress, which brought together all the Elders of Zion. They began conspiring to annihilate the Islamic and Arab nation, to plunder its resources, and to destroy its youth. Regretfully, the plots they hatched are being implemented today in detail."
"One of Their Conspiracies... Was to Gain Control Over the Entire Global Economy... So They Founded Huge Companies"
"One of their conspiracies, which stemmed from their black hatred, was to gain control over the entire global economy, bringing the world under their thumb. So they founded huge companies, which, like spiders, send their webs all over the world. The main goal of these companies was to erase Islamic identity.
"[The Jews] say that God - or rather, god as they define it - divided the week into six days. Two days He allocated for creatures and people. For two days, He sat and played with a whale. For the remaining two days, He sat in the company of Eve, who came to Him in her most splendid beauty and whatever... It's inconceivable that anyone with a grain of reason would say such things.
"They say that later, when the Holocaust took place, God was angry. Right. When the Holocaust took place, God was angry, and He stopped playing with the whale, and stopped seeing Eve, who would come to Him in her most splendid beauty. These are the things they believe about God." [...]
"All Carbonated Beverages Are Zionist-American Products... McDonalds is Jewish-Zionist, Kentucky Fried Chicken... Little Caesar, Pizza Hut, Domino's Pizza, Burger King... Starbucks"
"Many basic products, which may be found in many Muslim households, like Ariel, Tide, and Persil laundry detergents, are made by Zionist companies. The Coca Cola and Pepsi companies and all their products - Seven Up, Miranda, Fanta, and all these products, all the carbonated beverages, with very few exceptions that don't bear mention... Almost all carbonated beverages are Zionist-American products.
"Some restaurants, I'm sad to say, are teeming with Muslim youth, and their safes are full of the money of Muslims... McDonalds is Jewish-Zionist, Kentucky Fried Chicken is Jewish-Zionist, Little Caesar, Pizza Hut, Domino's Pizza, Burger King... By the way, all these products, which I have mentioned... In addition, there is a new type of coffee these days... All these are pure Zionist products, especially what is known as Starbucks, the well-known coffee. It is Zionist."
*Egyptian Cleric Said Al-Afani: Jews Are the Offspring of Snakes and Vipers and Were Behind All Wars

"The Jews Are The Accursed People... The Offspring Of Snakes And Vipers"
Said Al-'Afani: "[The Jews] are the accursed people, who incurred the wrath of Allah. They are the offspring of snakes and vipers, the slayers of our Prophet Muhammad, whose death was a consequence of his being poisoned by a Jewish woman.
"We should know that the Jews are the slayers of the prophets. They killed the prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) and the prophet Zakariya. They slaughtered the righteous prophet Yahya, and they presented his head as a gift to an Israelite prostitute.
"Our hatred of them is purely on religious grounds, and not because of the pure, sacred land, which was blessed by Allah, or because of Gaza..."
Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: "Not only because of Gaza..."
Said Al-'Afani: "...not only because of Al-Aqsa and so on. We hate them, first and foremost, because of their enmity towards Allah, and because they slew our prophets."
"It Is Our Duty To Hate Them, As Part Of Our Faith"
Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: "Let me clarify that it is our duty to hate them, as part of our faith."
Said Al-'Afani: 'Right."
Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: "People have become confused about this. Some think that it is a territorial or a national issue, or that it has to do with the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, but the issue is much broader - it is a matter of faith. We are obligated to hate them because they are a murderous people, and the enemies of all that is good and of Islam."
Said Al-'Afani: "The Jews were behind World War I and World War II. When the American commander said that Japan had agreed to the terms of surrender, Rothschild the American - or rather, Roosevelt the American - was told by the Jewish loan sharks to drop the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Jews were behind the English Revolution. The Jews were behind the French Revolution. The Jews were behind the U.S. Civil War in 1869-1866 [sic]. The Jews were behind the French coup of 1815. The Jews were behind the war between France and Prussia. The Jews were behind the rise of Communism. Karl Marx was a Jew. The Jews instigated war by means of sex. The Jewish Mathilde inspired Johnson to carry out the 1967 war, as we are informed by Muhammad Hassanein Haykal. The Jews are behind all the ruin and destruction in the world."
*Egyptian Cleric Sheik Masoud Anwar: The Worst Enemies of the Muslims - After Satan - Are the Jews
Following are excerpts from an address by Egyptian cleric Sheik Masoud Anwar, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 9, 2009.

The Worst Enemies of the Muslims - After Satan - Are the Jews; Who Said This? Allah"
Sheikh Masoud Anwar: "The worst enemies of the Muslims - after Satan - are the Jews. Who said this? Allah did.
"When our religious scholars wrote a prescription for a medicine that would cure our nation of the disease known as the Jews, they said that one of the elements of victory is knowing the enemy. One element of victory is knowing our enemy.
"The [Jews] are a nation of people who curse Allah day and night. The Jews describe Allah in the most abominable terms. They describe Him as miserly, powerless, and poor. In their view, God is someone who cries and slaps Himself in despair. He has regrets and is sorry. He plays games, and He is beaten. This is what the Jews said about God.
"They are prophet slayers. They killed 40 prophets. They accused the prophets of heresy and killed them. As for the books that were sent down by God, the Jews do not believe in either the New Testament or the Koran. As for the Torah - they distorted it." [...]
"The First Characteristic [of the Jews] is the Rigidity of Their Hearts"
"What are the characteristics of the Jewish personality? You should pay attention to this, and maybe even take notes. The first characteristic: One of the most prominent traits of the Jews is the rigidity of their hearts. Their hearts are rigid, and they bow their heads only to a strike by the hammer. The hardest hearts of all are the hearts of the Jews.
"The hardest hearts of all are the hearts of the Jews. Their hearts are solid, icy, and devoid of any goodness. They know no mercy or compassion. The Koran bears witness to this, history bears witness to this, and the reality of our life bears witness to this.
"What did the Jews do? They entered the village [of Deir Yassin], and killed 52 people, including 25 pregnant women. They killed 25 pregnant women. They slashed open the bellies of the pregnant women, and then cut the fetuses, laughing all the while. They would take a pregnant woman, slash open her belly, and then they would take the fetus out and cut it, laughing.
"Then they took some Muslim women, stripped them of their clothes, and paraded them in convertible cars around the Jewish neighborhood. Allah is with you, oh people of Palestine." [...]
"The Second Characteristic Is Their Clinging to Their Lives... The Third.. Is Their Treacherous Nature"
"The second characteristic is their clinging to their lives. You Jews... A Jew clings to his life, even if it means living the life of a worm, a rodent, or a cockroach.
"Cowardice is a deep-rooted characteristic of every single Jew. Cowardice... Clinging to life...
"The third characteristic of the Jews is their treacherous nature. The Jews are violators of covenants. Whoever believes that the Jews can honor an agreement is deluding himself. Whoever claims that the Jews honor their commitments is gullible. Whoever makes fun of us, saying the Jews are divided into doves and hawks, is a liar. There are neither hawks nor doves among them. You cannot even dream of a peaceful solution with the Jews. Forget about your dreams. They are either vultures or wolves - not doves. There are no doves or hawks among them. They are all wolves. They are all wolves. The Jew holds an olive branch in one hand, and a dagger in the other.
"The dog-eaters in Korea... The people who eat dogs in North Korea produced nuclear bombs. The people who worship cows in India produced a nuclear weapon and sent satellites into space. What have we produced?"[...]
"Another Characteristic of the Jewish Personality is the Love of Corruption"
"Another characteristic of the Jewish personality is the love of corruption. The Jews are behind any form of corruption in the world.
"Who spread atheism in the world? Karl Marx, who was a Jew. Karl Marx, who spread atheism in the world, was a Jew! Who spread sex and prostitution in the world? Freud the Jew, who tells you that in everything that humans do, they are driven by their sexual urges. This criminal even said that a breast-feeding baby is driven by his urges. What can I say about these people? They are filthy. Who spread promiscuity in the world? Sartre, the Jewish philosopher. Who spread the treacherous Bahai faith? The Jews. Who established Freemasonry, Communism, and nationalism? The Jews.
"What destroyed the world? Usury - invented by the Jews. Who is behind the alcohol trade in the world? 60% of the world's alcohol distillation industry is held by the Jews. They are human traffickers. Who invented the cinema and the theater? The Jews. The Jews are behind every form of corruption in the world." [...]
"The Sixth Jewish Characteristic is Stinginess, Miserliness, and the Worship of the Dirham and the Dinar"
"The sixth Jewish characteristic is stinginess, miserliness, and the worship of the dirham and the dinar. The most miserly of Allah's creations are the Jews.
"My brothers, God has made the Jews an example of miserliness. In Egypt, when we encounter someone stingy, we say to him: What's wrong with you, brother? You're such a Jew!"
 Ababil birds are described in the Koran as dropping red clay bricks on the army of elephants sent by the king of Yemen to attack Mecca in 571 CE.
