Imam Munir Elkassem, speaking at the Islamic Centre of Southwest Ontario, in London, Ontario, warned against Arab infighting. They are "killing each other" instead of "fighting the occupying entity," he said. Dignity, said Imam Elkassem, would not be achieved through negotiations and by "running to the 'Black House' and... to Moscow." Citing Gamal Abdel Nasser, he said: "Whatever was taken by force... will be restored by force alone." Imam Elkassem further said that the Arabs were now settling for East Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine: "We replaced 'noble [Jerusalem]' with 'East [Jerusalem]' because this is what our masters told us." The sermon was posted on the ICSWO YouTube channel on December 15, 2017.
