The Preacher Condemns London Attacks and the Crowd Cheers "Death to England"
MEMRI ^ | July 8, 2005

Posted on 07/11/2005 8:03:07 AM PDT by Alouette

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...

Crowd:Allah Akbar.
Allah Akbar.
Allah Akbar.
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.

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? :)

So Kashani announces that "massacring women, children, old and young is entirely inappropriate for a human being, and cannot be accepted by anyone with a conscience," and the crowd responds by chanting "Death to America. Death to England. Death to Israel."

Strange cosmos.

"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.

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.

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.

You are right it doesn't indicate whether he was present when the chants from the crowd occurred but even the more reason for him not to attend if they had occurred previously. An out of control radical mosque didn't become that way overnight.

The crowd you are referring to was in Iran, not Jordan, and was responding to Kashani, not Khalil. Different country, different time, different preacher.

Same religion, though.

I believe it was Freud's three sisters who died at the hands of the Nazis, not his daughter, Anna (who died in 1982).

If it had been the Islamofascists, however, they would have gotten the daughter, too, I'm sure.

To paraphrase what I wrote in an earlier post:

Western Civilization consists of building hospitals, schools, farms, factories, living space, office buildings, public transportation, restaurants, shopping malls, roads, highways, parks, museums, universities, representative governments ...

Muslim "civilization", from plain observance of current events, consists of blowing up all these things, especially if they have women and children in them.

One characteristic of these Islamo-Fascists is that they are big talking loudmouths that are big talk and little do. They are found lined up at the public trough sucking up the socialist dollar or intimidating their own to give them a living.

Another characteristic is that they have a macho perception of their existence which is hallucinogenic. Anyone who would intimidate a 14 year old girl to strap on a bomb belt is actually the lowest of life forms.

Another characteristic is the level of savagery they treat their own women. A woman who is forced to stay in a darkened house and only allowed to go into public only if they wear a burka, is a woman vulnerable to the worst of physical abuse. I would guarantee that the burka serves to hide the beatings and other atrocities their woman must endure from these macho savages.

Another characteristic is they are on a train ride to extermination. While these Islamo-Facist macho thugs shake their fists at the world, their base is being undermined. The forces against them are like termites nibbling away at their strength. How many of them have fallen? They will not ask that question because that will tell them they are losing. They will fall into the ash heap of history because Western Democracy has more tools in the belt.

Another characteristic is the stupidity that buys into this jihad-for-God garbage. Such follows the cult of death just as the 25 adherents of Heaven's Gate who thought they had found the "Higher Source." So too are the millions (I don't care what the exact count) who are willing to take a walk out to the Santa Monica pier and catch a ride into space.

I see them in my dreams--nightmare dreams--with everyone dressed identically in black, long-sleeved shirts and black sweat pants, and, with new black-and-white Nike tennis shoes. On their left shirtsleeves these jihadist Islamo Facists cult followers have no problems placing armband patches on which the words "Heaven's Gate Away Team" have been stitched (a reference to the television program Star Trek: The Next Generation on which a small crew called the "away team" went off on planetary ventures). Each night my nightmare continues as I dream about imbeciles intoxicated with the seduction of Marxism, joining the membership of Heaven's Gate, each packing their identical bags: a small overnight bag with clothing, lip balm, and spiral notebooks. And twisted around in this nightmare I see them,like automatons, place these bags--which could have been bomb bags--at the foot of their beds; put three quarters and a five-dollar bill into their shirt pocket (a habit developed so whenever they went out they would always have cab fare or change for the phone) and, to my disbelief, drink a small cup of grape juice. The Nike slogan "just do it," explains why they all wore Nike shoes as, all becomes still--my nightmare ends, when in lockstep they all stopped breathing, and like lemmings, they all slip into eternity.

America would never tolerate this. why do the British? The French would put every one of these monrels on the next plane to Algiers.The UK needs to shake its Lawrence of Arabia love for Muslims and kick the bastards out of their nation, if they still want to have a nation at all in 25 years.

As the AP would report this:

AP - A top Iranian official today made the following statement.
"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".
When will the world learn that the Muslims just want peace and that George Bush and Halliburton are responsible for all the terror that Karl Rove is devising?

As far as I'm concerned, there's only one word for a group of people in London chanting "Death to England" 4 days after a terror attack: TARGET.
