Following are excerpts from an address by Egyptian cleric Amin Al-Ansari, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on October 12, 2009.
Amin Al-Ansari: God has filled people’s hearts with loathing for these [Jews]. Let’s take a look at the field of sports. Forget about politics, military issues, and so on. Let’s look at sports on the international level. How come there are no successful Israeli sportsmen, like in any other people? They are abhorred. God does not let people be friendly with them.
Let’s see how the Jews are hated in the field of sports. They are abhorred. Let’s take a look.

Amin Al-Ansari: This is a Jewish soccer player, who behaved unjustly even on the field. But Allah be praised... Let’s take another look.
Replay of footage
Amin Al-Ansari: Look at this Jew being kicked. People hate them. They don’t like them.
We are not talking only about people. [The same goes] even for trees and animals. You know, there is rather peculiar footage, in which an Arab man who has a camel loves it and kisses it, and the camel kisses him back. Along comes a Jew and wants to kiss the camel, just like the Arab. What do you think the camel did? Let’s watch.
Footage showing Arab kissing camel and camel trying to bite Jewish man
Amin Al-Ansari: Look what happens when the Jew tries to kiss it... He’s fled the scene, of course. He’s fled from this “lion.”
Jews think that anybody can... No, animals can sense things. The proof is that the Prophet Muhammad said that when Judgment Day draws near, the final war between the Muslims and the Jews will take place. The Prophet said that the Muslims would kill the Jews. “Judgment Day will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.” The Muslims will kill the Jews. Be patient. All the trees and all the stones will say: “Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him – except for the Gharqad tree.” Only one kind of tree will not call [the Muslims]. It is the Gharqad tree.
