Translated from the original Arabic by MEMRI

The following video and transcript is from a Tunisian rally which aired on the Internet on May 20, 2012. In addition to proclaiming that "Every Muslim is a jihadist", and genocidal anti-semitic chants of "Oh Jews, the army of Muhammad is returning", the cleric refers to America's first black President as an ape.

Similar incidents involving some right-wing individuals have occurred in America, and even the left-leaning New York Magazine have had their turn. But the major difference between these incidents lay in the fact that they never had thousands of religious cheerleaders on their side, cheerleaders who found absolutely nothing offensive about referring to a black man as an ape, calling all Muslims terrorists, or calling for genocide against Jews. And they weren't generally ignored by the media.

Crowd: Obama, Obama, we are all Osama...” (continuous cheer, the slogan rhymes in Arabic obama, obama, kuluna osama) [...]

Speaker: “Some Tunisians and some Muslims are afraid of the jihadists We must ask, How come? Because the enemies have distorted the image of the jihadists, presenting them as the enemies of the Muslims.

We say: no! Every Muslim is a jihadist Every Muslim is a jihadist [...]

We are all jihadists, supporting Jerusalem, and elevating the word of Allah. [...]

Let us all cry 'Allah akbar' together, so that Obama the ape can hear us. All together now! Say 'Allah Akbar!'"

Crowd: “Allah Akbar”

Speaker: "Say 'Allah Akbar!'"

Crowd: “Allah Akbar”

Speaker: "Let America hear us! [...]

Crowd: Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jews, the army of Muhammad is returning (Slogan repeats and rhymes: jeisha Muhammad soufa y`aud) (x5)
