The following are excerpts from a lecture by Saudi cleric 'Aed Al-Qarni:
Al-Qarni: Allah be praised, [Abd Al-Aziz Al-Rantisi] was killed by the brothers of apes and pigs, the murderers of the prophets. He fulfilled his duty – he and Sheik Ahmad Yassin, Allah's mercy upon them. But we Muslims should be rebuked. One billion two hundred million nobodies! We are incapable of taking action, of being useful, of harming the Jews. The most people do today is to verbally protest over the TV channels or to demonstrate. What is the use of this? In the story of Joseph there is sacrifice, Jihad, and the fear of God. That's what the mujahideen, like Ahmad Yassin and Abd Al-Aziz Al-Rantisi, do. How many doctors are there in the Muslim world today? But Allah honored [Al-Rantisi] by having his blood spilled, and he has become an international issue, people have prayed for him, praised him, and Allah has forgiven him. I pray to Allah that He will make the enemies fall into their own trap and that He will destroy the Jews and their helpers from among the Christians and the Communists, and that He will turn them into the Muslims' spoils. I praise the Jihad, the sacrifice, and the resistance against the occupiers in Iraq. We curse them all of them every night and pray that Allah will annihilate them, tear them apart, and grant us victory over them...
The Jihad in Falluja is a source of pride. It is astounding: a city of 250,000 residents opposing a superpower – by the standards of this world – downing their planes, destroying equipment, slaughtering them, taking them hostage, and proclaiming "Allah Akbar" from the mosques, and the worshippers and the preacher cursing them in their prayers, and then come others begging for forgiveness, and requesting a dialogue and a ceasefire and negotiations. Who can say even one word against this true Jihad against these colonialist occupiers?
We must sacrifice people like Abd Al-Aziz Al-Rantisi, Ahmad Yassin, and thousands of others. Houses and young men must be sacrificed. Throats must be slit and skulls must be shattered. This is the path to victory, to shahada, and to sacrifice. Oh brothers, the idolatrous Vietnamese, Cambodians, and South Africans… Nations with no calling or divine law make sacrifices – sacrificing people, blood, and souls. All the more so should we, the nation of Islam.
