Following are excerpts from a sermon delivered by Sudanese cleric Sheik Muhammad Al-Jazouli, which was posted on the Internet on May 26, 2012.
Muhammad Al-Jazouli: "Dear brothers, the governor of Colorado spoke about the great threats [to the US]. I was amazed when I read these words. I was even more amazed when I began to look into this myself in detail, with regard to the American reality.
"I realized that the US suffers from a crisis in its south and a crisis in its west – just as it generates crises in the southern and western parts of all [other countries].
"In the south, the US suffers from the crisis of the black people, and in the west, it suffers from the crisis of the Indians. These people are now forming their own political organizations in the US, and are demanding the rights of their forefathers, and demanding revenge against the Europeans, who came to their lands and plundered them. This is the reality in America.
"If only I had power. If only I had media power and political power. I swear by Allah that within six months, I would blow up these time bombs, turning the US into a thing of the past.
"My final message is to the mujahideen: Be steadfast, oh mujahideen. Be steadfast for a little longer on the path of harming America. America is drawing its last breath. Do not let it catch its breath!"
