Watch: Sudanese Cleric Calls for Attacks on American Targets

A Sudanese cleric called last week for attacks on American targets, should the United States launch an airstrike on jihadists from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant who have taken over several cities in Iraq.

In a Friday sermon, the cleric Muhammad Al-Jazouli said that all U.S. embassies and interests would become "legitimate targets" in the event of such an airstrike, adding that targets would also include tourist resorts, universities, coffee shops, restaurants, airplanes, ships, shops, and companies.

The sermon was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
