Sheikh Ahmad 'Omar Hashem former president of Al-Azhar University, delivered the Friday sermon broadcast by Channel 1 of Egyptian Television on May 14, 2004. Following is a verbatim translation of excerpts from the sermon:

Oh oppressors everywhere, Oh violators of human rights, Oh criminals on our occupied land and our Jerusalem, know that this people has a great powerful God, Who sooner or later will bring upon you, Allah willing, His torments if you do not repent and if you do not rectify justice.

The Koran has promised us, and its promise is a true promise, "They cannot harm you beyond causing you some slight injury, and if they fight you they will turn their backs upon you. They will receive no help from any quarter"

Our Prophet made us a true promise, "You will fight the Jews until the Jew hides behind a stone or a tree, but the stone or the tree will say: Oh servant of Allah, Oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him." When will this promise be, Oh Master of the Universe?
