Destroy the Jews, Americans, Friday Sermons Slam US, from Arab nations


I am increasingly distrustful of all that our "allies" say when in fact they allow the hatred and venom to be let loose weekly in the mosques within their countries. Here, for example, some very recent sermons that are posted at Gabrielle Goldwater.mideastreality.com and illustrate my point.
Riyadh Kingdom of Saudi Arabia TV1 in Arabic, official television station ofthe Saudi Government, at 0942 GMT carries an 18-minute live broadcast of thesermon from the holy mosque in Mecca.

Shaykh Usamah Khayyat delivers the sermon. He praises God, the messenger,and his companions, thanking God for revealing Islam to spread justice and mercy on earth. Citing relevant Koranic verses, thei mam says "Islam forbids killing innocent people."

In the second part of the sermon, the imam says "victory is for Islam in the final analysis," supporting his argument by relevant Koranic verses. He devotes his sermon to pilgrimage affairs.

Concluding, the imam prays to God: "O God, strengthen Islam and Muslims;protect Islam; destroy the enemies of Islam, the tyrants, and the corrupt;close the ranks of Muslims, and give wisdom to their leaders. O God, grantus safety in our homeland, give wisdom to our imams and leaders, and supportour leader." He goes on: "O God, help the mujahidin promote your religion and your word everywhere. O God, give them victory in Palestine. O God, destroy the Zionist Jews and their Zionist supporters."
