The Friday sermon delivered at Bourin Mosque in Nablus on January 29, 2010 was virulently antisemitic, with the preacher making statements such as: "Jews will always be Jews. Even if donkeys cease to bray, dogs cease to bark, wolves cease to howl, and snakes cease to bite, the Jews will not cease to be hostile to the Muslims." Palestinian Authority Minister of Religious Endowments Mahmoud Al-Habbash was scheduled to deliver the Friday sermon, but he arrived late after having been delayed. He is seen sitting in the audience during the sermon, and afterwards, he made a short statement.

Following are excerpts from the sermon, which aired on Palestinian Authority TV.

'Our Mutual Enmity with the Jews is a Matter of Faith'

Preacher: "Palestine was subjected to a loathsome occupation of its land and holy places by these neo-Mongols, who perpetrated, on this holy, blessed, and pure land, acts of killing, assassination, destruction, expropriation, Judaization, harassment, and the fragmentation of the homeland.

"This is clear evidence of the hatred they harbor, and of their unparalleled racism. This is the Nazism of the 20th [sic] century.

"The Jews are the enemies of Allah and His messenger. They are the enemies of Allah and His messenger, the enemies of humanity in general, and of the Palestinians in particular. They are fighting us with all types of crime, and even the mosques have not been spared their racism.

"For the people who laid traps for the prophets of Allah – arrested them, killed them, and deceived them – it is a thousand times easier to lay traps for the followers of these prophets. Our mutual enmity with the Jews is a matter of faith more than an issue pertaining to occupation and land. [...]

"Jews will always be Jews. Even if donkeys cease to bray, dogs cease to bark, wolves cease to howl, and snakes cease to bite, the Jews will not cease to be hostile to the Muslims.

"The Prophet Muhammad said: 'Whenever two Jews find themselves alone with a Muslim, they think of killing him.' Oh Muslims, this land, these holy places, and these mosques will only be liberated when we return to the Book of Allah, and when all Muslims are prepared to become mujahideen for the sake of Allah, in support of Palestine, its people, its land, and its holy places."

'This Land Will Only Be Liberated Through Jihad'

"The Prophet Muhammad said: 'You will fight the Jews, and you will kill them, until the trees and the stones speak, saying: "'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah...'"

"The trees and the stones will not say: 'Oh Arab,' or 'Where are the millions [of Arabs],' or 'Where are all the Arab people'... They will say: 'Oh Muslim, 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.' This land will only be liberated through Jihad." [...]

Preacher: "Oh Allah, take the Jews."

Crowd: "Amen."
