Egyptian Cleric Said Al-Afani: Jews Are the Offspring of Snakes and Vipers and Were Behind All Wars

Following are excerpts from a religious TV program featuring Egyptian clerics Sheik Said Al-'Afani and Sheik Muhammad Abd Al-Salam, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 17, 2009:

Said Al-'Afani: [The Jews] are the accursed people, who incurred the wrath of Allah. They are the offspring of snakes and vipers, the slayers of our Prophet Muhammad, whose death was a consequence of his being poisoned by a Jewish woman.

[...]

We should know that the Jews are the slayers of the prophets. They killed the prophet Yahya (John the Baptist) and the prophet Zakariya. They slaughtered the righteous prophet Yahya, and they presented his head as a gift to an Israelite prostitute.

[...]

Our hatred of them is purely on religious grounds, and not because of the pure, sacred land, which was blessed by Allah, or because of Gaza...

Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: Not only because of Gaza...

Said Al-'Afani: ...not only because of Al-Aqsa and so on. We hate them, first and foremost, because of their enmity towards Allah, and because they slayed our prophets.

Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: Let me clarify that it is our duty to hate them, as part of our faith.

Said Al-'Afani: Right.

Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: Let me clarify that it is our duty to hate them, as part of our faith.

Said Al-'Afani: Right.

Muhammad Abd Al-Salam: People have become confused about this. Some think that it is a territorial or a national issue, or that it has to do with the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, but the issue is much broader – it is a matter of faith. We are obligated to hate them because they are a murderous people, and the enemies of all that is good and of Islam.

Said Al-'Afani: The Jews were behind World War I and World War II. When the American commander said that Japan had agreed to the terms of surrender, Rothschild the American – or rather, Roosevelt the American – was told by the Jewish loan sharks to drop the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Jews were behind the English Revolution. The Jews were behind the French Revolution. The Jews were behind the U.S. Civil War in 1869-1866 [sic]. The Jews were behind the French coup of 1815. The Jews were behind the war between France and Prussia. The Jews were behind the rise of Communism. Karl Marx was a Jew. The Jews instigated war by means of sex. The Jewish Mathilde inspired Johnson to carry out the 1967 war, as we are informed by Muhammad Hassanein Haykal. The Jews are behind all the ruin and destruction in the world.
