`OUR belief is that this war between us and the Jews will continue to escalate until we vanquish the Jews and enter Jerusalem as conquerors [and] enter Jaffa [adjacent to Tel Aviv] as conquerors. We are not merely expecting a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital; we are heralding [the creation of] an Islamic caliphate with Jerusalem as its capital."

An excerpt of a sermon Sept. 21 by Sheikh Ibrahim Madhi delivered at the Sheikh 'Ijlin mosque in Gaza and broadcast by Palestinian Authority Television. The excerpt was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) in Washington.
