In a Friday sermon delivered at the Umayyad Mosque of Damascus, Sheikh Muhammad Ma'moun Rahma said that "treachery is one of the characteristics of the Jews" and warned that according to the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the Jews were trying to control the global news agencies in order to control "global ideology." Their goal, he said, was "to uproot Islam and bring ruin upon its followers." The sermon was delivered on May 6 and was broadcast on the Syrian Sama TV channel.
Following are excerpts
Sheikh Muhammad Ma'moun Rahma: Treachery is one of the characteristics of the Jews, just as slyness is one of the characteristics of foxes. The Jews dream of ruling the world from their false "Temple."
Are you aware, oh Muslims and Arabs, that global Jewry holds the political reins in the world's superpowers? The entire world knows that the Jews control the sources of knowledge and fortune, in order to take hold of the reins of culture and economy. In America and in Europe, they are now the kings of finance, the leaders of the media, and the owners of the publishing houses. They are behind many of the ideological and political movements in the East and West. Oh Muslims and Arabs, listen to what The Protocols of the Elders of Zion tells us. They said: "We must get our hands on the global news agencies, because the press and the media are the means to control global ideology. That way, people will only see the news from the point of view we choose." Their goal is to uproot Islam and bring ruin upon its followers.
