In a public address that aired on Al-Nas TV on February 21, 2012, Saudi cleric Muhammad Al-Arifi stated that for a Muslim, merely having the notion that "to shed blood, smash skulls, and chop off body parts for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion" is a "mark of honor , even if you do not actually wage jihad." He adds that the U.S. and its allies dare to fight the Muslims only because the Muslims "did not even consider fighting and conquering the ][infidel] countries."

In a previous address, that aired on Al-Nas TV on February 6, 2012, Al-Arifi said that Jews "don't even have the courage to kill," claiming that Jewish soldiers would defecate and urinate inside their tanks because they were too scared to leave them. He also stated that they, like the U.S. soldiers in Iraq, take anti-diarrhea pills so that they don't "go about with the shit flowing from them."

The following are excerpts from both addresses:

"Just Having [the] Notion In Your Heart" To "Shed Blood, Smash Skulls, and Chop Off Body Parts for the Sake of Allah" Is a "Mark of Honor – Even If You Do Not Actually Wage Jihad"
Muhammad Al-Arifi: "There is no doubt that one's devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah and one's will to shed blood, smash skulls, and chop off body parts for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion constitute an honor for the believer. Just having this notion in your heart is a mark of honor, even if you do not actually wage jihad." […]
The U.S. and Its Allies "Only Dared To Engage In The Daily Corrupting Of And Fighting Against Islam And The Muslims When They Saw That The Muslims Did Not Even Consider Fighting And Conquering The [Infidel] Countries"
"The infidel countries – the U.S. and its allies – would not have dared to fight the Muslims, to rape their wives, and to turn them into widows… They only dared to engage in the daily corrupting of and fighting against Islam and the Muslims when they saw that the Muslims did not even consider fighting and conquering the [infidel] countries.
"If the Muslims implemented the words of Allah: 'Fight the infidels near you, and let them find harshness in you,' and other Koranic verses, like the Verse of the Sword, which deal with fighting the infidels and conquering their countries, stating that they should join Islam, pay the jizya poll tax, or be fought… Had the Muslims implemented this, we would not be in our current state of humiliation."

"There Was Not A Single Battle In Which The Jews Fought the Believers Face To Face... They Don't Even Have the Courage To Kill"
Muhammad Al-Arifi: "Jews have many characteristics. One of them is the inability to withstand confrontation. I studied the history of the Jews when I was giving a course on religions once. Throughout the history of the Jews, I have not encountered a single battle in which they fought their enemies head-on. Can you believe this?
"The history of the Jews goes back even earlier than Islam. Nevertheless there was not a single battle in which the Jews fought the believers face to face. They always fight from behind fortifications or walls – either mental walls or physical walls. They fight you from behind walls. Therefore, you often see that when a fully armed Jew encounters three or four Palestinians, he flees, with his gun in his hand. What, they don't even have the courage to kill? No, they don't.
Jewish Soldiers Would Defecate and Urinate Inside Their Tanks Because They Were Too Scared To Leave Them
"In the old tanks, there were no openings for defecation and urination. Soldiers who spend eight hours inside a tank felt the call of nature, but they were too scared to leave the tank, relieve themselves, and return. Even though they were armed, and their comrades could cover them, their hearts were filled with terror and they didn't dare to do it. So they took bags into the tanks into which they could defecate and urinate. Then they would open the hatch and throw the bag away. All this out of fear that they might be killed.
They Take Anti-Diarrhea Pills – Just Like U.S. Soldiers in Iraq – So They Don't 'Go About With the Shit Flowing From Them'
"I also read that at some stage, during the Palestinian Intifada – which should be called the Palestinian Jihad – the demand for anti-diarrhea pills grew. As you may know, when a person is afraid, his body discharges feces. So the demand for these pills grew, because they started to discharge feces in their tanks and on their clothes.
"The same thing happened to the Americans in Iraq. This was authenticated by published intelligence reports. Pharmaceutical companies report when the U.S. army orders large quantities of a certain drug. Why do they order it? To put it in candy? They ordered these pills so that their soldiers could take them, and would not go about with the shit flowing from them." […]
