GAZA - In a reaction similar to the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks in New York, the blood spilt in the London terror attacks has been celebrated within the Palestinian territories.
The Gaza based Sut Al Quds radio station, which identifies itself with Palestinian Islamic Jihad, has praised the London terrorist atrocities.
The broadcast was carried live on Saturday evening, two days after the attack.
The radio station was broadcasting a sermon, in which a preacher was inciting listeners against Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
The preacher criticized Israel’s planned Gaza withdrawal, saying that Jerusalem was not part of the program.
The Palestinian Authority was described as vile for opening up a casino in Jericho.
Also in the same broadcast, Osama Bin Laden was praised, while the succession of explosions in London were welcomed.
The preacher welcomed the “blessed acts” that took place recently in Iraq and Britain, and highlighted their proximity to the selection of an Olympic host for the 2012 games.
“The sounds of happiness were heard in London, and Osama Bin Laden came and redrew the map. He made sure that the voice of the surrendered will be heard in every place,” the mosque's preacher said.
The sermon was translated by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center,
which emphasized that mosques under the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority routinely incited for murder, and were being used by a variety of organizations with no effective supervision by the Authority.
