Australian Islamist Musa Cerantonio: Pentagon A Legitimate Target; Islam Of Muslims More Dear Than That Of Western Victims

Following are excerpts from a lecture by Australian Islamist Musa Cerantonio which was posted on the Internet on April 29, 2013:
Musa Cerantonio: "The military headquarters of the U.S.A. is in the Pentagon. In Islam, if a plane happened to fly into the Pentagon – would they be considered innocent or not? They are not innocent. These are the ones who plan the wars on Islam. Yet you find Muslims responding by saying that 9/11 was forbidden. Ask yourselves. I am only giving you what Islam says. I'm not saying anything. Ask yourselves. Forget their financial center [The World Trade Center], which, according to many scholars, is also a permissible target. As for the one [attack] on the Pentagon – even if a Muslim happened to be there that day – is it now forbidden?" [...]

Former Egyptian Islamic Jihad Leader Nabil Naeem: The Muslim Brotherhood A Bunch Of Fascist Moronic Amateurs

Following are excerpts from interviews with Nabil Naeem, a former leader in the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, which aired on Al-Mayadeen TV on May 30, 2013, and on Al-Arabiya TV on May 31.
Nabil Naeem: "As the former leader of the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, and as someone who spent many years in Afghanistan with Dr. Ayman [Al-Zawahiri] in the war against the Russians, I would like to give the following piece of advice to the fighters in Syria: After 15 years of fighting in Afghanistan, the shari'a has not been instated and an Islamic caliphate has not been established. The slogan for which you are being mobilized is false, because you will not instate the shari'a.
"Has the United States donned the veil? Do you really think it will instate the shari'a in Syria? Has Obama converted to Islam? Is he about to establish the caliphate in Syria? You are being used as instruments in their colonialist designs. When the war is over and you are no longer needed, they will do to you what they did to us – you will either be killed or sent back to prison." […]

Lebanese Film Director Ziad Doueiri Defends Visit To Israel: Boycott Harms Us, Not Israel

Following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese film director Ziad Doueiri, which aired on Al-Arabiya TV on May 24, 2013:
621f.jpgInterviewer: "Your movie was filmed in Israel, in Hebrew, with an Israeli actress. Doesn't this contravene Lebanese law?"
Ziad Doueiri: "Technically, it is not against the law to film a movie in Hebrew. What was against the law was my going to Israel, and filming a movie with some Israeli actors. True, that was against the law, but there are more important issues. The question is about the law itself. I went to Israel as a U.S. citizen, on a U.S. passport. Before going, I gave official notification to the military intelligence about this, so they would not think that I was collaborating with Israel behind their backs. I wrote a letter to the military intelligence and sent it through the Information Ministry. I presented myself and said that I planned to go to the occupied land, in order to film a movie in Palestine with some Israeli actors. I told them that I had to do this because the entire plot takes place between Tel Aviv and Nablus." [...]
