As the most prominent religious figure on official Palestinian Authority TV in the last years of Yasser Arafat, Ibrahim Mudayris is a very important PA religious figure. His official title was “Head of the association for learning Quran by heart.” More significantly, he was chosen by the political and religious establishment to deliver most of the official PA TV Friday sermons from 2003 to 2005, making him the public voice of the PA’s religious ideology.

The religious ideology he expressed in the name of the Palestinian Authority included the following concepts:

- Israel will be destroyed in stages: Through diplomacy, Israel would be brought to the 1967 borders, and from that position Israel would be destroyed in war.
- The extermination of all Jews by Muslims is predetermined and is necessary for the “Hour” of Islamic Resurrection.
- All the non-Jewish world will be subjugated under Islam. But Jews will be exterminated, since they refuse subjugation.
- The Jews are the cause of all the world’s problems, from wars to natural disasters, such as the 2004 Tsunami.
- The persecutions and Antisemitism that Jews suffered in country after country throughout history were acts of self-defense against the Jews by the nations , and proof of the Jews’ evil nature.

After PMW translated and disseminated a May 2005 sermon in which he preached that the entire world was to be subjugated under Islam -- except for the Jews, who would be exterminated -- there was an international media condemnation. Foreign governments put pressure on the PA, and Mudayris stopped giving PA TV sermons.

Ibrahim Mudayris, Official, PA Ministry of Religious Trusts and Religious Affairs:
     “When the mosque burned, an old woman was prime minister of the Zionist Entity. Her name was Golda Meir. She controlled the Zionist Entity, and when she heard that a gang of Zionists dared to burn the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, she clapped her hands [in sorrow] and mourned the [bad luck] of Israel, for she assumed that the Muslims and Arabs would hurry instantly to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the hands of the Zionist Entity."

Ibrahim Mudayris, Palestinian Authority cleric:
     “Praise [Allah] who united America, Britain and Spain, reaching a decision against our people in Iraq. This is the Infidel’s way, oh Muslims. The United Nations, to our regret, has become a “House of Assembly” (pre-Islamic meeting place) because that is where the Infidels meet.” Click here to view

Ibrahim Mudayris:
     "America is the foremost enemy of this people. America is the foremost enemy of the Muslim nation, because it wages war against the Arab, Islamic nation. Iraq possesses far more oil than the oil reserves of Saudi Arabia, and [America] wants to control [the oil], so it created various methods, fabricated lies, in order to wage war against Iraq. America is now behaving like Pharoah. I see in America what we saw and heard from Pharoah, Allah's curse on him. America is now behaving like Pharoah. It is telling the whole world: "There is no God besides me." (Quran) Click to view video
