- Radical Islamic cleric
- "Oh Allah, annihilate the Jews and their supporters . . . Oh Allah, raise the flag of jihad across the land."
Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi is an Islamist cleric employed by the Palestinian Authority (PA). He advocates the worldwide supremacy of Islam, and his sermons are regularly filled with ugly anti-Jewish diatribes and calls for violent jihad. Typical of his rhetoric was an April 12, 2002 sermon carried on PA television, in which Madhi said, “Who will set the Muslim to rule over the Jew? Allah . . . Until the Jew hides behind the rock and the tree. But the rock and tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, a Jew hides behind me, come and kill him.’. . . Anyone who does not attain martyrdom in these days should wake in the middle of the night and say: ‘My God, why have you deprived me of martyrdom for your sake? For the martyr lives next to Allah’ . . . Oh Allah, show the Jews a black day . . . Oh Allah, annihilate the Jews and their supporters . . . Oh Allah, raise the flag of jihad across the land.”
