NEW YORK- Official Palestinian Authority Television has broadcast a sermon calling for the destruction of America and Israel yet another blatant violation of the conditions that President Bush established in his June 24, 2002 speech.
President Bush said in his June 24, 2002 speech that the Palestinian Arabs must end incitement to violence in official media. (For a copy of the Zionist Organization of Americas detailed report on Palestinian Arab violations of President Bushs conditions, call the ZOA at 212-481-1500.)
Official PA Television on March 14, 2003 broadcast a live sermon by Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris in the Sheikh Ijlin Mosque in Gaza, in which he said: O Allah, support us against our enemies. O Allah, destroy our enemies. O Allah, destroy America and Israel. O Allah, shake the land under their feet.
On the same day, official PA Radio broadcast a live sermon from the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, in which Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, the PA-appointed Mufti of Jerusalem, denounced the criminal United States and rancorous Britain. He added: We appeal to Arabs, Kurds, Turks, Indians, Pakistanis, Malaysians, Indonesians, and others to stand as one rank, stop the aggression, and cleanse their territories of US military occupation. The Arab and Islamic rulers must benefit from the international stand against aggression by deterring the United States from carrying out its possible war O Allah, make the plots of the aggressors backfire on them. O Allah, annihilate them to the last man. O Allah, protect Al-Aqsa Mosque from every evil. O Allah, protect Iraq and its people.
Morton A. Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), said: Why does the Bush administration continue to support creation of a Palestinian Arab state and continue giving the Palestinian Arabs $150-million in taxpayers money each year, when they use those funds to incite against America and Israel, in violation of President Bushs own demand that they stop their incitement? President Bush promised to end terrorist states, not create new ones. Establishing a Palestinian Arab state would, in effect, reward the Palestinian Arabs anti-Jewish terrorism and hatred.
