A Palestinian cleric told television viewers that Israel has spread a “sex craze” around the world and that Jews, being interested only in material worth, place offensive advertisements for penis enlargement products in the media that “crush” the spirits of Arabs and Muslims.
Sheikh Imad Yaaqub Hamatu made the comments in a June 12 broadcast on Palestinian Authority TV. An English translation of parts of his televised sermon was provided by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute, a non-government media watchdog.
“The global media of Israel has expanded and it has launched its war against the Arab and Muslims by spreading the sex craze throughout the world,” Hamatu declared. “As I have said in a previous lesson, Israel has resorted to this sex craze in order to crush all types of spirit among the Arabs and the Muslims.
“Everything is dead among the Muslims except for their urges,” he lamented, and then expanded on the subject. “That is why we have begun to see all sorts of abominations and shamelessness on many TV channels. We see ads for penis enlargement and for all sorts of things, which are shameful and offensive to one’s modesty. Why is this? Because as said in the Quran, the Jews are the people of matter, not of spirit.”
For Jews, “only material things have value,” Hamatu warned, and offered an interpretation of the Quran quote “you shall find them to be the people most eager to protect life”: “The Quran did not say ‘their life,’ just ‘life,’ life of any kind — life in the garbage, a life of cowardice… they [the Jews] only care about staying alive.”
“What has Israel contributed to the world except for moral corruption and addiction to pills?” he asked.
Hamatu also claimed that the CIA uses drugs to control the minds of people in the Middle East.
“In a previous lesson, I have said that there is a unit in the CIA, called the Unit for Controlling the Global Mood,” he said. “They look at the map and decide what (drug) is suitable for Gaza, Jordan, or Syria.”
“Perhaps Tramadol? Happy pills, maybe? Hallucinogens?” he pondered, revealing a certain familiarity with recreational narcotics. “They are produced in India, imported to Israel, and distributed here in the Sinai.”
