Ibrahim al-Banna, Former Head of Media, November 2010

“The operation of the explosive packages which was performed by the mujahidin of the Arabian Peninsula against the companies of air freight belonging to the disbelieving nations is our right... It is a response to the continuous support to the usurping Jews who are invading Jerusalem and are blockading Gaza.”Ibrahim al-Banna, “Tawaghit Exposed,” Inspire Magazine 3 (2010): 10.

Mohammed Morsi, former Egyptian president, September 23, 2010

“No reasonable person can expect any progress on [negotiations]. Either [you accept] the Zionists and everything they want, or else it is war. This is what these occupiers of the land of Palestine know – these blood-suckers, who attack the Palestinians, these warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”“Morsi in 2010: No to Negotiations with the Blood-Sucking, Warmongering ‘Descendants of Apes and Pigs’; Calls to Boycott U.S. Products,” MEMRI, accessed May 30, 2014, http://www.memri.org/clip_transcript/en/3702.htm.

Said al-Shihri, Former Deputy AQAP Leader, August 2010

“The Jews and apostates from the rulers of the Peninsula are in an alliance that was set up by America. Iran and their Arab Shi'i supporters in the region are another alliance…”Murad Batal Al-Shishani, “Al-Qaeda’s Sa’id Al-Shihri Seeks to Revolutionize the Saudi Military,” Jamestown Foundation, Terrorism Monitor 8, no. 34 (2010): 3-4.

Said al-Shihri, Former Deputy AQAP Leader, August 2010

“Know…that the upcoming war is a war against Islam and the Sunni Muslims in the Arabian Peninsula and the Sham [Levant]. Treaties and alliances have been formed for that. The Jews want to build the Temple of Solomon and the state of Israel…The Jews and apostates from the rulers of the Peninsula are in an alliance that was set up by America. Iran and their Arab Shi'i supporters in the region are another alliance… It is expected that the Jews will begin the war against Iran, in which the battlefield will be the Peninsula and its citizens. The Jews are in the Sham and Iran in the Peninsula… [Saudi soldiers] Disavow your support for the tyrant, the agent of the Crusader campaign in the region, which places you in the realm of non-belief…”Murad Batal Al-Shishani, “Al-Qaeda’s Sa’id Al-Shihri Seeks to Revolutionize the Saudi Military,” Jamestown Foundation, Terrorism Monitor 8, no. 34 (2010): 3-4.

Said al-Shihri, Former Deputy AQAP Leader, August 2010

“Do not turn your guns against Muslims who have rebelled against the tyrant with their tongues, hands, protests and other acts. Aid them, and use your arms against Israel, which is only kilometers away from you, the lights of which can be seen from the al-Haqd region in the north of the Peninsula. Let those of you who are pilots seek martyrdom in the skies of Palestine. Let those of you in the navy aim your weapons at the Jews there, and attain the honor of martyrdom in the cause of God.”Murad Batal Al-Shishani, “Al-Qaeda’s Sa’id Al-Shihri Seeks to Revolutionize the Saudi Military,” Jamestown Foundation, Terrorism Monitor 8, no. 34 (2010): 3-4.

Nasir al-Wuhayshi, former leader, Summer 2010

“All praise is due to Allah, the targeting of Muhammad bin Nayif was part of our effort to purify the Arabian Peninsula from the traitors. He and his ilk are the ones who allowed the Americans to set base in the Peninsula of Islam, playing the role of Abu Ruqal in its worst forms. He is an American in the clothes of an Arab. If it wasn’t for these traitors, the American airplanes wouldn’t have bombed Iraq and Afghanistan from the airports of Kharj and Riyadh and others, and if wasn’t for them, the Jews wouldn’t have remained in Palestine for more than sixty years.”“Interview with Shaykh Abu Basir: the Head of al-Qa’idah in the Arabian Peninsula,” Inspire Magazine 1 (2010): 13-17.

Nasir al-Wuhayshi, former leader, Summer 2010

“All praise due to Allah. America is the one forcing us to target it. These heinous crimes which the human soul rejects such as the cartoons of the Messenger and holding celebrations and awarding those who curse the Prophet require us to target the Americans. In fact they require us to wipe them out of the map completely. America is a cancer that needs to be removed along with the West that is supporting this criminal behavior and are banning the niqab of the chaste and pure Muslim women.”“Interview with Shaykh Abu Basir: the Head of al-Qa’idah in the Arabian Peninsula,” Inspire Magazine 1 (2010): 13-17.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Brotherhood spiritual and intellectual leader, January 30, 2009

“Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers.”“Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler On the Jews to Punish Them – 'Allah Willing, the Next Time Will Be at the Hand of the Believers,” MEMRI, February 3, 2009, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/802/3062.htm.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Brotherhood spiritual and intellectual leader, January 28, 2009

“To conclude my speech, I’d like to say that the only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allah’s enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life with martyrdom.”“Sheikh Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi: Allah Imposed Hitler On the Jews to Punish Them – 'Allah Willing, the Next Time Will Be at the Hand of the Believers,” MEMRI, February 3, 2009, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/802/3062.htm.

“Oh Allah, take this oppressive, Jewish, Zionist band of people… do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.”“Muslim Brotherhood Ideologue Incites Violence Against Jews and Israel,” Anti-Defamation League, February 2, 2009, http://archive.adl.org/main_terrorism/qaradawi_gaza_threats.html#.U4lMhZRdXMd.
