A Sermon from a different Church

My previous post was about a group of Christians who were adopting GNU/Linux Open Source applications for Religious Groups and promoting their use. Not by their own Church but by any Faith.

Charles at LGF links to an excerpt of a Sermon delivered May 13th of this year. Here is the excerpt:

We have ruled the world before, and by Allah, the day will come when we will rule the entire world again. The day will come when we will rule America. The day will come when we will rule Britain and the entire world - except for the Jews. The Jews will not enjoy a life of tranquility under our rule, because they are treacherous by nature, as they have been throughout history. The day will come when everything will be relived of the Jews - even the stones and trees which were harmed by them. Listen to the Prophet Muhammad, who tells you about the evil end that awaits Jews. The stones and trees will want the Muslims to finish off every Jew.

The entire transcript is here (it's not long to read -- only a few minutes and the above quote was not taken out of context, the entire thing is that sick) -- the video with English subtitles is available at the LGF link above.

The Sermon was delivered by the official "Palestinian Authority" television channel as part of their Friday service.

I am not dogpiling on Islam -- my first wife was a practicing Sufi (a branch of Islam) and I had the great pleasure to meet some wonderful people. This hate that we see is a corruption, a perversion of a wonderful faith. The people who promote this are untrue to their spirit. Let's just say that when they die, the 72 Virgins ain't init...

UPDATE: Dr. Sanity published an excellent post on this same Sermon -- the Sermon of Hate.

She links to the same English translation and then offers the following thoughts:

Any person of rationality and goodwill should read this and shiver. It is absolutely chilling to think that a human mind could be filled with such hatred and vitriol. In an abstract sense one can barely imagine it, and then you read something like this.

In my earlier post on Why Grown People Use Immature Psychological Defenses, I wrote:
Defenses may be difficult to detect by the user unless conscious thought and emotional honesty are applied to the problem; but they often can be detected by a disinterested observer who can see the distortion of reality that is being displayed. Sometimes the observer may be actually flabbergasted at the way an individual can deceive him or herself.Well, I continue to be flabbergasted (and I am a psychiatrist) at the level of distortion, denial, delusional projection, and fantasy that flows from the adherents of Islam. This sermon was televised on TV by the Palestinian Authority!

Is there no leader anywhere who is capable of penetrating through the self-deceptions, rage and hatred; and lead the Muslim population out of their self-imposed exile from reality?

Until there is, they will only continuously act out their destructive fantasies and every setback will confirm the delusion that they are victims of some massive world-wide conspiracy. If it is a conspiracy they want to find, they need look no further than the venal and fanatical men who lead their nations and coordinate their jihads.

All the evil they so adamantly assign to the Jews lies festering within their own souls.

She nails this on the head. I love the line about "self-imposed exile from reality" -- can anyone honestly deny this? Sad really -- all the children whose minds have been polluted, it will take generations if people start now.
