“The American tyranny” is Pharaoh in this generation, the Palestinian people are Moses, says preacher on official PA TV
Official PA TV, Friday sermon by PA Shari’ah Judge Muhannad Abu Rumi at a mosque in Bethlehem
PA Shari’ah Judge Muhannad Abu Rumi: "'[Allah] saved you from the people of Pharaoh, who were afflicting you [the children of Israel] with the worst torment and were slaughtering your [newborn] sons and keeping your females alive' [Quran, Sura 14:6]. Serious affliction, killing – from the people of Pharaoh, who is represented in this generation by the American tyranny that wants to impose its rule. And we as the Palestinian people are in the situation of Moses: [Moses] struck him and killed him… They want to impose rule with iron and fire on our people and our children. We say to them: America is not our fate... We will not submit to them. We will not agree and will not accept the occupation… However long it takes, they will be defeated, and we will overcome them, Allah willing… But dear ones, we are required to take initiative."
