Palestinian Authority Preacher: "Whoever has not merited Martyrdom in these times should rise in the night and ask: ´My Lord why have you denied me Martyrdom?´” (PMW- PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH) 04/14/02)Source: http://www.pmw.org.il PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH PMW} PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Introduction:
Friday’s religious sermon, televised on official Palestinian Authority TV, included:

1. expectations to conquer the Israeli cities Jaffa, Haifa, Ramle and Lod
2. expectations of the widescale murder of Jews as a harbinger of “the day of the Hour” (Resurrection Day).
3. encouragement of Martyrdom - Shahada - for Allah
4. anticipation of the expansion of Islam over all the world.

This Friday, the PA reached a new level of manipulation in encouraging their people to seek death in Shahada, Martyrdom for Allah, by adding religious guilt to those who are not yet Martyrs. In Friday’s sermon on PA TV the PA religious leader, Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi, who is chosen regularly for the televised sermon, seems to indicate that those who are not yet Martyred may be lacking in their practice of Islam: “Whoever has not merited Martyrdom in these times, should rise in the night and say call: ‘My Lord! Why have you denied me Martyrdom?’

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Starting today we will often include as attachment the visual footage from PA TV. In the past we have seen PA leaders on international news programming expressing ignorance or even denying PMW sources when they were challenged by interviewers, and the interviewers were unable to prove the sources. Please save these films for future reference.

From Friday´s sermon:
“We are positive that Allah will help us triumph. Our belief is resolute that one day we shall enter Jerusalem as conquerors, enter Jaffa as conquerors, Ramle and Lod… and Harbiye [Kibbutz Zikkim] and Beit Jarjar [Kibbutz Masu’ot Yitzhak] and all of Palestine, as conquerors!…

“Whoever has not merited Martyrdom in these times must rise in the night and call ‘My Lord, why have You denied me Martyrdom??’ If He asks them [Arab leaders], on Judgment Day: ‘the majority of Palestine was lost in ’48 and what did you do? And the last remainder was lost ion ’67, and now it is being vanquished anew.’ How shall we respond to our Lord?…

“Palestine shall be the burial grounds of the invaders just as it was for the Tartars, and the Crusaders and for modern colonialism… The Tradition relates to us that Allah’s cherished one [Muhammad] said: ‘The Jews will battle against you but you shall emerge masters over them. The Jews have begun the battle against us. And who makes the Muslim master of the Jew? Allah, may He be blessed, the Wise may He be extolled. Until such time as a Jew will hide behind a rock or tree, and the rock or tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah, here is a Jew behind me, Oh Muslim, come and kill!’ We put our credence in this Tradition as well as in the Tradition that proclaims the expansion of Islamic rule over the world. (PMW.ORG.IL 04/14/02)

“Allah, take in our Martyrs
“Oh Allah, show us the Jews’ black day!
“Oh Allah, show us the Jews’ black day!
“Oh Allah, show us the Jews’ black day!
“Allah, turn upon the Jews and those who aid them!
“Allah, turn upon the Jews and those who aid them!
“Allah, turn upon the Jews and those who aid them!…
