In a sermon delivered in the Al-Ameen Mosque in Gaza, elementary school student Ubeida Abu Kmeil said that Palestine was being "targeted by the plundering Jews." "We are the descendants of Saladin. We are the invincible generation," he said, proclaiming: "This land is where we are entrenched, in order to liberate Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, and all the Palestinian cities." The sermon was posted on the Al-Ameen Mosque Facebook page on December 9.
Ubeida Abu Kmeil: My good brothers, we realize the extent of the danger in our Palestinian land. It is being targeted by the plundering Jews. Our children are being massacred, our men are being imprisoned. and our homes are being demolished. What do you expect? Do you expect to see mercy and compassion on the part of the Arab countries? No! We are a strong people that cannot be defeated. We are the descendants of Saladin. We are the invincible generation. We shall be like Saladin. We should adhere to our religion in order to attain victory. Allah willing, this land is where we are entrenched, in order to liberate Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, and all the Palestinian cities. We shall pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, to which our Prophet Muhammad made his nocturnal journey.
