Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered at a Khartoum mosque by Sheik Muhammad Tannoun, which aired on Sudan TV on May 25, 2007:
Sheik Muhammad Tannoun: In 1948, Palestine was lost – that blessed land, the land of the Muslims. Its inhabitants were dispersed and killed. By whom? By the most despicable creatures on the face of the earth – the offspring of apes and pigs.
So far, nobody has made an effort to study why Muslim lands in different places were lost. We always blame the Jews and Christians for this failure and neglect. We say these are conspiracies. Some people say: "We do not believe in conspiracy theories." These are facts, not theories. [We witness] conspiracies and deception say and night.
