“Sheikh Ahmad Mana’i in Jordan Eid Al-Adha Sermon Refers to Jews as ‘Brothers of Apes and Pigs,’ Prays: Oh Allah, Destroy America, Russia, and the ‘Rabbis’ of Tehran,” MEMRI, September 12, 2016
In a sermon marking Eid Al-Adha, delivered at the Al-Maqari Mosque in Irbid, Jordan, Sheikh Ahmad Mana’i talked about “conspiracies” carried out by America, Russia, and Europe, along with the Jews, whom he called “the brothers of pigs and apes,” and traitors from among the Arabs. He prayed to Allah to support the Sunnis in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and to destroy the “criminal Rafidites” and the “plundering Jews,” and called upon Him to “destroy America completely” and to “destroy Russia completely as well.” The sermon aired on Yarmouk TV on September 12.
Sheikh Ahmad Mana’i: “We are witnessing conspiracies by America, Russia, and Europe, along with the Jews and the traitors from among the Arabs. They even deluded the Muslims with the so-called ‘Arab Spring,’ inflicting ruin and destruction upon them. They have diverted people from Islam’s number one cause, the Palestinian cause, and this was exploited by the brothers of pigs and apes, to inflict all kinds of torture upon our brothers in Gaza and Palestine.
“Oh Allah, may You raise the banner of Islam over all of Mankind, in Your grace. Oh Allah, support the Sunnis in Syria, Iraq, and Yemen, and send Your soldiers to help the people of Palestine. Oh Allah, support our persecuted brothers everywhere. Oh Allah, destroy the criminal Rafidites. They are no match for you. Destroy the plundering Jews. They are no match for you. Inflict upon them a day ‘austere and distressful.’ Oh Allah, destroy the ‘rabbis’ of Tehran and the ‘Vatican’ of Qom. You, our Lord, are all-powerful.
“Oh Allah, give strength to the Sunnis fighting the Houthis, the Alawites, the criminal Rafidites, and the traitors from among this nation. You, our Lord, are all-powerful. Oh Allah, destroy America completely. Destroy Russia completely as well.”
