The following are excerpts from a Friday sermon at Tehran University by Ayatollah Mohammad Amami-Kashani, which aired on Iranian TV Channel 1 on July 8, 2005
Kashani: Regarding the bombing incidents in London, the Islamic Republic and the foreign ministry have expressed their position and condemned them. The entire Iranian people condemns this. Massacring women, children, old and young is entirely inappropriate for a human being, and cannot be accepted by anyone with a conscience. Iran has expressed its people's solidarity with the survivors of these incidents in London.
You speak of terror and Al-Qaeda. Have you forgotten who the mother and father of Al-Qaeda are? America is its father, and Israel its mother. It is the illegitimate child of these powers. You yourselves have brought it about...
Khamenei is the leader.
Death to those who reject the rule of the jurisprudent.
Death to America.
Death to England.
Death to the hypocrites (Mojahedin-e Khalq) and Saddam.
Death to Israel.
Kashani: You yourselves have brought it about, and you have done so in the name of Islam. Thus, the child, whose father is the arrogance of the White House, and whose mother is the executioners of Israel, and who you have named "Islam" is known to all. The reason he was named this way is clear, as is your true nature. You brought (Al-Qaeda) about in order to bring calamity to our lives, but, thank God, it has brought calamity to yours.
Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon by Sheik Ahmad Khalil in Amman, in the presence of Jordanian King Abdullah. The sermon was aired on Jordan TV on July 8, 2005.
Presenter: Dear brothers, the Prophet Muhammad said: "Renew your belief." They said: "How can we renew our belief, oh Messenger of Allah?" He said: "By saying, 'There is no god but Allah'." There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Dear brothers, say "Amen" after praying for the Prophet Muhammad. Oh Allah, bestow success upon the King, for the benefit of Your servants.
Sheik Ahmad Khalil: Islamic law protects human life. While we condemn the killing of any Muslim and of any believer, whether Muslim or not, we also condemn manifestations of aggression against the peaceful and innocent, anywhere in the world. What happened in London, the attacks against peaceful and innocent people, among them Muslims and believers... This does not mean that the killing of non-Muslims - peaceful and innocent men, women, and children - is allowed. Allah forbade any man from striking fear in another man's heart, from killing another man, and from oppressing another man.
Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered in the United Arab Emirates, and aired on UAE TV on July 8, 2005. The preacher's name is not available.
Preacher: What happened in a certain country, which was mentioned in the media yesterday, is a clear act of aggression, which is totally devoid of any logic, and is entirely unjustified. Whoever carries out such an act is not a Muslim, nor is he a religious person. This is the kind of criminal act that serves only those who wish to destroy mankind, and to thwart civilization and progress. Igniting civil strife and using the tools of war and destruction is the habit of the despicable Jews and Christians of the ancient nations, and the Koran has already deplored them for that.
The following are excerpts from an interview with Abd Al-Bari Atwa, editor-in-chief of the London Arab daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi
Atwan: There is no doubt that Tony Blair, the prime minister of Britain, got a good slap from these explosions. Tony Blair was at the height of glory up to the last moments before these explosions. When I say the height of glory, I mean that he succeeded in ensuring that London, the capital of Britain, will host the Olympics, and likewise he was reclining in his seat as the head of the G8 summit.
In addition, he began his term as leader of the European Union. Through these achievements, the man wanted to cover up the big failure incurred by the British and American policy in Iraq.
These explosions came and blew up everything.
They prove that the war Blair and Bush waged against terrorism, on which they have spent about 250 billion dollars, in addition to the killing of some 2000 British soldiers and 100,000 Iraqi citizens this war up till now has not been successful.
If the Al-Qaeda organization is really behind these explosions, this proves that it has reorganized its ranks, succeeded in recruiting new expertise, and reaching the heart of the European capitals Britain following Madrid, and maybe in the future Washington or New York.
WARNING: This is a high volume ping list
WTF?? They hate America, Saddam, England, and Al Quaeda??
Just more proof of why we need to end World War IV/the Final Crusade with the destruction of the Jihadists around the world and those who support their insanity.
They are just kidding about the Al Quaeda part.

Call them and tell them to get out now because of their support of terrorist.
I think they mean that Al-Qaida is the product of America and Israel's aggression against Muslims. IOW, "look what you made us do!".
The scene where the Joker tells Batman that Batman is the root cause of the Joker's crime sprees comes to mind as well.
Yes, I know. They are taking the line that it didn't spring forth from Islam. It is not working for me. You? :)
And the liberals will still be singing Kumbaya while Europe and America Burns! When will the Leftists get it?
Why doesn't England kick these bums out already.
"When will the Leftists get it?"
They'll understand it at about the same time Freud's culturally assimilated, intellectually elite daughter did.. when she was led by the Nazis to the front of the shower line because of her "position" in society.
The lefties don't understand that unless they are Muslim men they are never going to be spared the infidel's punishment.
I read the excerpt of Khalil's sermon and fail to see
any support for the terrorists. Maybe I didn't parse it
Merely being at a place where crowds chant,"death to anyone" without REAL condemnation just more lip service is support of terrorism. Action speaks louder than words.
The excerpt didn't make clear that the audience was
chanting for anyone's death in the King's presence,
hence my comments.
If they were, (and I doubt they would in HMKA's presence),
it would be cause for concern for Ms Rice to take up
with the Jordanian ambassador.
I don't buy "look what you made me do" from anyone.
They say they condemn the acts, but take obvious pleasure in them.
ONCE AGAIN THE MEDIA CALLS A MUSLIM CLERIC A PREACHER TO TAKE THE STING OFF.
PREACHERS OR PASTORS ARE CHRISTIAN.
RABBIS ARE JEWISH.
MUSLIM CLERICS ARE ISLAMIC.
