Official Palestinian Authority TV - Apr. 30, 2004

 
Ibrahim Mudayris, Official, PA Ministry of Religious Trusts and Religious Affairs:
     “We are not like you, because we do not desire life. If you threaten to kill President Arafat, we will pray to Allah: ‘Grant the president Shahada (Martyrdom) for you."’ Yes, we do not pray - like other preachers pray - for longevity for the rulers; here in Palestine we pray: “Lord, grant the President Shahada for you.” Click to view video
