"O God, support the mujahidin for the sake of the triumph of your religion
and the elevation of your word everywhere. O God, support them in Palestine,
Kashmir, and Chechnya. O God, support the mujahidin in Palestine. O God,
deal with the tyrant Jews for they are within your power. O God, we ask You
to face them and spare us their evils. O God, whoever wishes us and Muslims
evil, busy him with himself and make his plotting destroy him."...

"It is natural that the world's people look at this minority which lives within itself with suspicion and prudence for its introversion towards itself and the lack of bridges between them and the others. This introversion includes different phenomenon as living in closed neighborhoods, surrounded by high walls or fences. It includes also the establishment of social relations, as marriage, with other people. The Jew closes himself, refuses to abandon its bygone language, its tradition and customs, in order to become an isolated phenomenon. But since the modern societies in the west are zealous about this extinct phenomenon, it enables the Jew to do what he does, and to always find someone who protects him and helps him, even if it means the annihilation of all of a people in order to take its place".

"O God, help our weak brothers in Palestine score victory over the usurper Jews. O God, destroy the Jews, who have gone too far in their tyranny, corruption, and aggression. O God, shake the ground under them, instill fear in their hearts, and make them a prey for Muslims."

"The murderer, Ariel Sharon, will be welcomed in the US, on Monday 6/5/2002, with a bay crown made by the American congress, since a couple of days before his arrival (3/5/2002), two decisions were made, supporting Israel in the Middle East struggle, based (on the claim) that '(Israel) is fighting terror' as the US does. Both decisions were made by the member of the Zionist Council of Elders, Joseph Lieberman…"

In an article dealing with the Internet media, the writer reports on an internet "chatroom" conversation: "…and then the debate flared up, when one of them presented what he called 'the Christian world's dissemblance to the Jews', as they killed the Messiah, upon him be peace, and their role in the church's destruction and division. He mentioned the annoying fact about their role in the two World Wars' ignition, which destroyed millions of lives, a big part of them are Christians. And then he said that today they (Jews) are exploding the Church of the Nativity's gate in front of the world…."
Ar-Riyadh, Saudi government daily, quoting Dr. Fayez ash-Shuhri in an article entitled "Even the Internet Defeats Sharon," April 17, 2002
"Can someone in the world convince us with those slogans … after the American regime seeds (in the world) the uglier kinds of injustice, oppression and separation in the name of defending international interests, while it defends the most famous terrorist regime and the most famous terrorist, whose name is Sharon? How does America want the world to be convinced with its actions against terror, while it supports it in Palestine?"
Ar-Riyadh, Saudi government daily, quoting Dr. Haya 'Abed al-'Aziz al-Muni' in an article entitled "The American History is Written by a Palestinian Child," March 20, 2002
"I don't believe that the [Sept. 11] attack on America was perpetrated by Bin-Laden or the Muslims. I think differently. I believe it was a scheme."
"What is happening now is a continuation of an ancient attack. It is a continuation of the Jewish deception and the Jewish-Zionist wickedness which infiltrates the US... I am surprised that the Christian US allows the brothers of apes and pigs [meaning the Jews] to corrupt it."
"[The Jews] have murdered the prophets and the messengers. They are the most despicable people who walked the land and are the worms of the entire world. They are all evil. And why? Because they are deceiving and plotting aggressors...."
"The Jews do not respect Jesus, the son of Mary. America should know who the Jews truly are. The Jews see Jesus as someone born from prostitution, while he is the noble prophet of Allah, and his mother, peace be upon her, is pure...."
"Jewish fingerprints have infiltrated the US. Jewish evil and deception are those who attacked the US. Osama Bin-Laden fought against the opposing falsehood and oppression that is generated by the evil and deceptive Jewish-Zionism...."
"They want to rid the world of Islam. They don't want Islam to ever have a revival. Osama Bin-Laden removed oppression; even Muslims came back to their belief and their religion. He did not present a distorted picture of Islam to the West. Quite the contrary; reading about Islam became more popular in the West."
"Westerners read about the morality of the Prophet Mohammed, his beliefs and his values. They read about Islam, not about terrorism...."
"The American people is a people that is being led by the media and TV culture. If a wicked Jewish crook begins saying that the Muslims are oppressors, it has an influence on the Americans."
"The media in America is in the hands of the Jews and behind it are the Jewish Zionists' despicable fingerprints that change reality. They have even deceived the Christians about their own religion."
"Did you know that the person who forged the Christian religion is a Jew?"
"The Muslims have mercy on the Christians more than they have on the Jews. Bin-Laden defended the oppressed. We warn the US and advise it to get rid of the Jews."
