Following are excerpts
from an interview with Egyptian cleric Dr. Sallah Sultan, founder of
the American Center for Islamic Research,
based on Columbus, Ohio. The interview
aired on Al-Nas TV on January 17, 2012.
Dr. Sallah Sultan:
Allah mentions the Israelites in 50 out of the 114 suras of the
Koran, even in very short suras. This means that enmity is first
and foremost towards the Israelites.
I call upon young people
to practice sports, and to strengthen their bodies in preparation for
Jihad. Practice Karate, practice Taekwondo, practice all the sports
that make your body extremely strong. Lift weights, and then dream,
day and night. Turn your faces towards the heavens. If the young turn
their faces to the heavens in a desire to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
it will be liberated soon, Allah willing.
