During a Friday sermon at Masjid Al-Furqaan in Cape Town, South Africa, Imam Abduragmaan Alexander addressed the Islamic nation, saying: "You have no guts, no courage, no power, and no motivation to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the bloody hands of the Zionist entity." Imam Alexander further said that Palestine and the Al-Aqsa Mosque were crying out: "Oh nation of Islam, you are a billion Muslims, yet you are unable to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the hands of the oppressive occupying Jews." The sermon, delivered on October 27, was posted on YouTube by the Al-Furqaan Mosque. Imam Alexander studied Islamic law and comparative religion under Sheikh Ahmad Deedat in South Africa. According to the website of his mosque, he also studied at the World Bible School in the U.S. He serves as Imam at Masjidul-Quds in Cape Town.
Abduragmaan Alexander: "Right at this moment, when we are sitting in this beautiful mosque, this house of Almighty God Allah, there are Palestinian people yearning to set foot inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque, but they are denied entry into the Al-Aqsa Mosque by the aggressiveness of the Israelis. By Allah, I have witnessed this for twelve years in succession. After Hajj, when I used to take groups to Palestine, I saw the aggressive nature, the brutality, and the stark naked hatred in the eyes of the Israelis for the Muslim people.
"We are sitting with a serious problem. Palestine is crying out, the Al-Aqsa Mosque is crying out: Oh nation is Islam, you are a billion Muslims, but you are unable to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the hands of the oppressive occupying Jews. The Al-Aqsa Mosque is crying out: Where are you, oh nation of Islam? Globally, you are more than one billion strong, but you have no guts, no courage, no power, and no motivation to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the bloody hands of the Zionist entity.
"'And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion.' The Quranic verse, full of wisdom, is alive, and it plays itself out in front of our very eyes every single day. Allah says that they, the imperial forces and the Zionist forces, will never ever be happy with you, 'until you follow their religion' – until they can subjugate you and you become subservient to them. This is happening, and they are very very busy."
