Following are excerpts from a statement by Egyptian cleric Dr. Sallah Sultan, founder of the American Center for Islamic Research, Columbus Ohio, which aired on Al-Jazeera Network on August 26, 2011:
 

Sallah Sultan: As someone who has studied Islamic law, specializing in Islamic jurisprudence, I am calling to kill the [Israeli] ambassador, not just expel him. Our sons were killed in our country, on our land, and our sons are being killed in Gaza by an occupying enemy. Brothers and sisters, the genuine rulings of Islamic law can no longer be silenced. I am prepared to confront any Islamic scholar who says otherwise.

When General Issam Al-Tarsawi headed the anti-narcotics unit, he said that heroin and other drugs were first brought to Egypt in the suitcases of Zionist diplomats, which are not subjected to search. That's right. Before the [Camp David] Accords, Egypt did not have these drugs, these crimes, or these images.
 

Show me one good thing that came out of the normalization of relations with the Zionist entity. You may say: We got the Sinai. Did we really?! To this day, we do not have authority over the Sinai.
 

[…]
 

Once I said: Any Zionist – tourist or other – who enters Egypt must be killed. We will not kill tourists from any [other] country. We stress that this fatwa is directed only toward those Zionists, who destroyed our country, killed our people, and shed our blood on our land.
