Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon in Qatar delivered by Sheik Tareq Al-Hawwas, which aired on Qatar TV on July 18, 2014.
Sheik Tareq: We must support our brothers (in Gaza) and pray for them, so Allah helps them. How can we not, when we witness the blessed fruits of their confrontation with the enemy? True, they are not equal in strength and their equipment is not on par with them, but Allah bestows blessings upon the weapons that our brothers have managed to produce by themselves, in order to vanquish the enemy. For the first time in the history of the abhorred country, the state of Israel, sirens are heard around the clock and over three million people flee to their hideouts. Schools, governmental departments, and airports came to a halt. When have we ever heard of such things? This is the beginning of good things to come. After today, there is no turning back. It is the duty of our nation to continue to support our brothers. Oh, Allah increase the pressure You exert upon the plundering Jews. Demonstrate upon them the miracles of Your might, for they are no match to You. Count them one by one, and kill them to the very last one. Do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, disperse them. Oh Lord, freeze the blood in their veins. Oh Allah, tear them asunder. Oh Allah, sow discord in their hearts. Oh Allah, do not let them prevail. Make an example of them for their allies. Oh Allah, bring down the planes of their air force, burn their infantry and sink the ships of their navy.
