Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered in Khartoum by Sheik Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri, which aired on Sudan TV on October 30, 2009.
Sheik Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri: Our history with Christianity is one of friendship, while our history with Judaism is a history of war – not because of their sectarian affiliation, but because of the corrupt Jewish scheme. Since the dawn of history and to this day, they are destined to spread corruption in the land.
We want the world to see Islam’s relations with the other religions in the proper light, in order to achieve world peace. The bloody conflicts in the world today are because we live in “Israeli” times. Israel is recruiting the Christian world against Islam, and this causes a rift in international relations.
Just like the Jews tried to kill the Prophet Muhammad, they tried to kill Christ, and according to their faith, they indeed killed and crucified him. Despite this, the Jews were granted a pardon. Moreover, the West today is seeking absolution for the Holocaust by trying to serve the Israeli entity. They are seeking absolution for the historical Holocaust. The reason is that the Christian belief is linked to Judaism these days. It is called Zio-Christianity.
This belief resides in the White House, regardless of who occupies it. Some believe in it, like the former US president, and others succumb to it, like the current US president. Therefore, the current US policy is not in its best interests. [Benjamin] Franklin, one of the founders of the American nation, warned them about the Jews 200 years ago, but they did not heed this warning.
We heard [Obama’s] speech in Cairo and were pleased about it. From this podium, we welcomed our son, Obama Hussein, hoping that he would not take the same path as his predecessor. But he is taking the same path.
