Egyptian Cleric Hazem Sallah Abu Isma'il Lectures on the Jews' Conflicts with Prophet Muhammad and States: "Eighty-Two Percent of All Attempts to Corrupt Humanity Originate from the Jews"

Following are excerpts from a lecture by Egyptian cleric Sheik Hazem Sallah Abu Ismail, which aired on Al-Risala TV on April 14, 2006:

Sheik Hazem Sallah Abu Ismail: As I always say, when I am at an airport, I see young Jews with a cause, young Americans with a cause, young Western men, young Eastern men, young Japanese - they all have causes, which they respect. Young Muslims and Arabs, on the other hand, care only about pretty girls and pleasure... This is why we find ourselves trampled underfoot.

[...]

As I've told you, following the great victory at the Battle of Badr, the Muslims felt joy and enjoyed stability, but the Jews, the hypocrites, and the infidels felt boiling rage and fury towards Islam. For instance, if they encountered a Muslim women in the market, they would harass her. As you know, things like that have also happened recently, following 9/11. Muslims were harassed in the markets of American and Europe. There were some incidents, although not many, in which a man would strip a Muslim woman of her veil in the market.

[...]

The Jews are determined to own the media, in order to control the ears and eyes of the youth. Do you know that all those songs that appear in movies... The percentage of Jewish-produced video clips worldwide, according to statistics from 2003... Jews produce more than 82% of the video clips in the world. The Jews! These are not Islamic statistics, but statistics by the UN organization for media, culture, and science. Eighty-two percent of all attempts to corrupt humanity originate from the Jews. You must know this so that we can know what should be done.

The Jews' control of the media involved poets, like Ka'b Ibn Al-Ashraf. He was a well-known poet. Like the international actors, he was tall, fair-skinned, handsome, good-looking, and perfumed - the pinnacle of splendor and glory. A beautiful sight! He was a poet, and he began writing poems about... Have you heard of Salman Rushdie? Have you heard about that woman from the Indian Peninsula or Bangladesh, who wrote against Islam? He wrote against Islam just like they do today.

[...]

This guy Ka'b began publishing poems about the wives of Muslims. He referred to the wives of Muslims, and damaging their honor. In other poems he would curse the Prophet, ridicule him, and say improper things about him. In a third type of poem, he would curse the Prophet's companions, and compare them to animals - dogs, sheep, and camels. This was a type of insult. The Arabs of those times loved poetry, as the verse says: "Poetry is the language of the Arabs." For Arabs, poetry is sharper than the sword.

[...]

Then a terrible incident took place, when they killed a Muslim. If anyone ever asks you how the Muslims came to fight the Jews, tell them that Islam did not fight the Jews because they are Jews, but because they violated the agreements.

[...]

A woman went to the Jewish market of the Qaynuq'a tribe to buy gold from a goldsmith. She went to buy a ring or earrings. She sat down, and a Jew asked her: "Why do you cover your face?"

[...]

While she was sitting, preoccupied with [her business], he took a pin, and used it to attack the edge of her garment to the garment itself. She was unwilling to reveal her face, but when she got up with the edge of her garment pinned up, she was exposed - the lower part of her body was exposed. Her private parts were exposed. This is a horrendous thing for regular Arabs, let alone for Muslims. This was not the first time such a thing occurred. The Jews would harass the Muslims in the marketplace time and again, as I've told you. The Jews gathered around her and started laughing: "You did not want to reveal your face?!" They clapped their hands and were happy. The blood boiled in the veins of one of the Muslims, and he approached the Jew who did this, and killed him. The Jews went up to the Muslim and killed him in the market.

[...]

In our own Islamic state, our own rule, women's private parts are being exposed, and men are being killed? Is this what we have come to? Nevertheless, the Prophet did not fight or kill the Jews. He went to them and said: "You will not remain in Al-Madina after this."

[...]

How wonderful are the justice and wisdom of Islam. How wonderful, brothers, is... how should I put it... the tolerance of Islam. How wonderful is the tranquility of Islam, while it confronts those violators of agreements. But do you think that once they were out of Al-Madina they kept quiet? Ka'b Ibn Al-Ashraf, about whom I told you, wrote an [anti-Muslim] poem, and distributed it far and wide.

[...]

I know that many people will start talking to me about "suicide operations," martyrdom-seeking operations, political assassinations, and so on, just because the Prophet gave the order to kill Ka'b Ibn Al-Ashraf. He gave the order because K'ab was the propaganda machine, the apparatus for boosting the morale in the camp of the Jewish combatants. Ka'b Ibn Al-Ashraf was not the kind of person about whom you could say: Let's just shoot him, and he'll die. He was the apparatus for boosting the morale in the Jewish army. He was the apparatous for military propaganda in the Jewish army.

[...]

And thus, the story of Ka'b Ibn Al-Ashraf came to an end. This was the end of one of the mouthpieces of Jewish propaganda. Some people today want to hold us responsible. They say: "What you did was a political assassination."

What the Prophet did was not a political assassination, but an act which was part of a war. Besides, the Prophet did not commit this political assassination until Muslims were permitted to fight and wage Jihad.
