In a Friday sermon delivered on November 1, 2013 in Kuwait, Sheik Abd Al-Muhsin Al-Mutairi decried the Muslim youth watching the World Cup and entertainment shows on TV. "The Jews were successful in preoccupying the Muslim youth... with the most inane matters... in keeping with 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,'" he said.
Following are excerpts from the sermon, which was broadcast on Kuwait TV:
Sheik Abd Al-Muhsin Al-Mutairi: "Oh servants of Allah, how saddening and very painful it is to see many Muslim youths glued to TV screens at cafes or at home, passionately watching entertainment shows, like the football World Cup, in despicable subjugation to the abominations of the other nations – as if we were not a nation with a brilliant history and a lofty civilization. [...]
"The Jews were successful in preoccupying the Muslim youth – except those protected by Allah – with the most inane matters, distracting them from important things, in keeping with what is written in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion: 'In order to keep the masses in the dark, oblivious to what is being planned for them, we will exert efforts to distract their attention, by creating means of entertainment and diversion, amusing games, and all kinds of sports, as well as things that feed one's desires. Then, we will make the newspapers promote artistic and sports competitions.'
"The Jews, the Christians, and their hypocritical, mercenary lackeys have invested great efforts in cutting the nation off from its glorious history. They want Muslim youths to fumble about in the darkness of Western culture, which is promoted by the sinful media." [...]
