Following are excerpts from an address delivered by Saudi cleric Muhammad Al-Arifi, which aired on Al-Nas TV on February 6, 2012.
Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Arifi: Jews have many characteristics. One of them is the inability to withstand confrontation. I studied the history of the Jews when I was giving a course on religions once. Throughout the history of the Jews, I have not encountered a single battle in which they fought their enemies head-on. Can you believe this?
The history of the Jews goes back even earlier than Islam. Nevertheless there was not a single battle in which the Jews fought the believers face to face. They always fight from behind fortifications or walls – either mental walls or physical walls. They fight you from behind walls. Therefore, you often see that when a fully armed Jew encounters three or four Palestinians, he flees, with his gun in his hand. What, they don't even have the courage to kill? No, they don't.
In the old tanks, there were no openings for defecation and urination. Soldiers who spend eight hours inside a tank felt the call of nature, but they were too scared to leave the tank, relieve themselves, and return. Even though they were armed, and their comrades could cover them, their hearts were filled with terror and they didn't dare to do it. So they took bags into the tanks into which they could defecate and urinate. Then they would open the hatch and throw the bag away. All this out of fear that they might be killed.
I also read that at some stage, during the Palestinian Intifada – which should be called the Palestinian Jihad – the demand for anti-diarrhea pills grew. As you may know, when a person is afraid, his body discharges feces. So the demand for these pills grew, because they started to discharge feces in their tanks and on their clothes. The same thing happened to the Americans in Iraq. This was authenticated by published intelligence reports. Pharmaceutical companies report when the U.S. army orders large quantities of a certain drug. Why do they order it? To put it in candy? They ordered these pills so that their soldiers could take them, and would not go about with the shit flowing from them.
