Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon in Al-Bireh, the West Bank, which aired on Palestinian Authority TV on January 6, 2012:
Preacher: Oh servants of Allah, every evil and catastrophe on the land of Palestine – moreover, in the whole world – is caused by the Jews. They generate civil strife with their clandestine handiwork, their despicable texts, their bitter hearts, and their abominable intentions.
Allah said: "Whenever they kindle the fire of war, Allah extinguishes it, but they strive to do mischief on earth. Allah loves not those who do mischief." This is the history of the Jews. Many a covenant have they violated. Many a prophet have they slayed.
