Palestinian preacher Ali Abu Ahmad, speaking at an Al-Aqsa Mosque rally, said that the occupation of Palestine by the Jews, the "vilest" and "most despicable and cowardly of creatures," was due to the fall of the Caliphate, and called upon Islamic armies to mobilize their forces "to finish off the monstrous entity of the Jews." His prayers to "annihilate all the Jews," to "destroy the [Palestinian] Authority of shame and disgrace," and to "destroy the rulers of the wicked [Muslim] mini-states" were answered by cries of "amen." A video-clip of the address was posted on the Internet on May 6.
Ali Abu Ahmed: "The cause of the prisoners in the prisons of the occupation is not detached from the cause of the people of Palestine, and the cause of the Islamic nation, the mother of all causes - which is the fact that there is no Caliphate. Indeed, servants of Allah, with the fall of the Caliphate Palestine was occupied by the Jews, the vilest of creatures, and the place of the Prophet's nocturnal journey was defiled, blood was spilled, the honor of women was violated, the elderly were humiliated and the children were killed - by the Jews, the most despicable and cowardly of creatures.
"Oh armies of the Islamic nation, if you take up arms in order to please your masters and your rulers, know that the rulers of the wicked (Muslim) mini-states have let you down, after they turned toward America and the West. On the other hand, if you take up arms to please Allah - and we believe that this is the reason - your time has come. The time for you to mobilize your armies has arrived, in order to come to the aid of the prisoners, and of the place of the Prophet's nocturnal journey in Palestine, and in order to support Muslims everywhere. It is time for you to mobilize in order to finish off the monstrous entity of the Jews.
"Oh Allah, destroy the rulers of the wicked (Muslim) mini-states!"
Ahmed: "Oh Allah, destroy the (Palestinian) Authority of shame and disgrace!"
Ahmed: "Oh Allah, annihilate all the Jews!"
Ahmed: "Oh Allah, enable us to kill them!"
Ahmed: "Oh Allah, bestow upon us the honor of the Caliphate soon!"
