Following are excerpts from an address by Egyptian cleric Mahmoud Al-Masri, which aired on Al-Nas TV on November 16, 2012.
Mahmoud Al-Masri: "We must all make an effort for the sake of our country, because if Egypt rises and the Syrian revolution prevails – I swear that this will be the end of Israel, Allah willing.
"The Zionist entity has become nervous about us for a simple reason: They cannot forget the utter defeat they suffered in the 1973 war. If some of the superpowers had not intervened to stop that war – if President Sadat had been allowed to continue – it would have been the end of Israel. They stopped the war, but if it had continued, Israel would have been finished off. It would have been erased from the face of the Earth. But Allah decreed otherwise.
"Allah willing, Israel will be annihilated, because the Prophet Muhammad said so. Don’t believe it because I said so. Believe it because I say that the Prophet Muhammad said so: “Judgment Day will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.”
"The final annihilation [of the Jews] will come at the time of the Mahdi, or shortly before the Mahdi appears. Then the Muslims will regain the Al-Aqsa Mosque, if they do not manage to spread Islam throughout the land.
"A small group of Jews will remain, but not the Jews living in Palestine. A group of Jews from Isfahan will survive, and they will follow the Anti-Christ, but eventually, they will also be killed, along with the Anti-Christ.
Ultimately, not a single Jew will be left on the face of the Earth. Victory is coming, Allah willing."
