JERUSALEM – America is responsible for any bombs that kill Muslims in Muslim countries, a Palestinian preacher claimed in his sermon on Friday at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Sheikh Al-Abu Ahmad blamed the U.S. and the “infidel West” for all acts of terror targeting Muslims.
“America’s crimes in Muslim countries are known to all. Any action carried out, any explosion and any operation in which a Muslim is killed in Muslim countries, America stands behind it, together with the infidel West that hates Islam and Muslims,” Ahmad said in the videotaped sermon first exposed by Israeli NGO Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
He continued by saying that even in cases where responsibility for the attacks are claimed by organizations like the Islamic State, America is still to blame.
“It doesn’t matter who takes responsibility for the crime and who announces it. We will never believe it. We will never believe it. We will never believe it because America is the one that blows up Muslims and it is the one that kills Muslims,” the Sheikh said.
The Palestinian Authority has frequently made similar accusations that the U.S., in cahoots with Israel, is responsible for the terror attacks and civil wars tearing apart Arab nations.
Following the March 22 attacks in Brussels which killed 33 people and injured hundreds more, PA Security Forces Spokesman Adnan Al-Damiri said that Europe and the U.S. brought terror on themselves for “exporting Jewish terror to Palestine.”
