A leading Egyptian cleric earlier this year declared in a sermon broadcast on national television that popular soda drink producer PEPSI is actually a front for funding Israel against its Arab enemies.
According to cleric Hazem Abu Ismail, PEPSI is an acronym that stands for "Pay Every Penny to Save Israel."
He went on to say that not only PEPSI is the problem, but all big name Western products, the revenues from which ultimately go to forwarding the Zionist agenda.
Abu Ismail's sermon was broadcast on Egypt's Al-Nas TV on February 16 of this year. Translation was provided by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
