This is the typical jihadist displacement of responsibility and paranoid Jew-hatred, but I had to laugh at the references to “President Hussein.” I thought only wicked “Islamophobes” called him that. Has Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri been reading Atlas Shrugs?
“Friday Sermon on Sudan TV: Preacher Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri Calls on US ‘President Hussein’ to Acknowledge that the Jews Carried out 9/11,” from MEMRITV, June 5 (posted more recently), with thanks to Sr. Soph):
Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon at Khartoum, delivered by Sheik Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri. The sermon aired on Sudan TV on June 5, 2009.
Sheik Abd Al-Jalil Al-Karouri: As usual, the media focused only on the political aspects of the speech by American President Hussein. They call a man after his father, don’t they? Then why shouldn’t we call him by the name [Hussein], which belongs to us? They stress the surname, rather than the first name. It wouldn’t be a mistake for our media to call him President Hussein. […]
We call upon him to examine publications issued in America, casting doubt on whether it was the Arabs and Muslims who attacked the two Manhattan buildings. Some of these publications went as far as to state: “No Plane Hit the Pentagon.”
How could our young men — from our so-called “backward” countries — possibly use American airplanes to destroy these buildings, the steel pillars of which are as large as the pillar of this mosque? imagine this pillar made entirely of steel. Could [the burning] of the plane’s fuel destroy such pillars?
Some experts published photos showing that the buildings had been booby-trapped. Mr. President of America, this booby-trapping — you brought these fighters, who helped you defeat the Soviets in Afghanistan, in order to use them as a pretext for invading Afghanistan and Iraq. We want President Hussein to be fair and to study the 9/11 files.
We consider this to be a Jewish conspiracy. 4,000 Jews were absent from work in this usury center — these two buildings in Manhattan were the World Usury Center. 4,000 Jews were absent from work, so that 4,00 Americans would die. The [Americans] must study the issue of 9/11, so they can apologize for it, just like they apologized for the invasion of Iraq.
When we listen to such a speech, we should encourage this president, who has certain roots. As I said to a certain TV channel, Obama’s arrival in the region is like the arrival of Alex Haley from “Roots” in Africa in search of his forefathers. [Obama] has ideological roots, because his father is one of ours, and his religion, originally, is our religion. he has a longing for these roots. Otherwise, he would not display such a yearning.
