Somehow Ghaleb Rabab’a has gotten the crazy idea that the Muslim quarrel with Israel is a religious one. He doesn’t sound as if a Palestinian State will do the trick for him. How very odd! “Friday Sermon on Jordan TV: Jordanian Army Is Invincible, Will Shatter the Might of Israel,” from MEMRITV, March 23:
Following are excerpts from a Friday sermon delivered by Jordanian cleric Ghaleb Rabab’a, which aired on Jordan TV on March 23, 2012 :
Ghaleb Rabab’a : The [Jordanian] army is invincible. Its units are filled with people who pray, with imams, and with people who memorized the Koran. This army will never be defeated, Allah willing. Jerusalem will be regained, Allah willing, by these modest and pure hands, which hold the Koran high and recite it day and night….
This army, my brothers in faith, will shatter the might of Israel, Allah willing, just as the might of the Crusaders and the Byzantines was shattered at Hittin, at Yarmouk, Al-Qadisiyya, ‘Ain Jalut, Mu’ta, and Al-Karamah. [Israel’s might] will be shattered by the will of Allah.
Allah will not leave for long the first direction of prayer for the Islamic nation in the hands of the slayers of the prophets.
