The Zionist Organization of America News Release, March 19, 2003.
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.”

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
“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
“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 Bush’s own demand that they stop
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.”
