Former Jordanian MP Muhammad Abd Al-Qader: Jihad and Martyrdom Are the Best Way to Expel the Jews from the Sacred Land

Following are excerpts from an interview with former Jordanian MP Muhammad Abd Al-Qader, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on June 13, 2012.

Muhammad Abd Al-Qader: The best method was that of martyrdom operations. How those faces changed with gloom and humiliation…


When the Jews sense security and stability, which are provided by the ruling regimes around them, [they initiate] security, economic, and political enterprises. They build sky-scrapers. That time, [their punishment] will be worse, and [their enemies] will "visit with destruction all that fell into their power." In other words, the Muslims will destroy these security and economic enterprises, as well as these buildings, until not a single Jew can hope to remain on this sacred land, and until not a single Jew living outside this sacred land can hope to come here.

That is the path – the path of fighting and of martyrdom-seeking…

Interviewer: Honorable sheik, do you think that this will happen in the near future?

Muhammad Abd Al-Qader: I think that this will happen soon, because when you examine the state of the Islamic nation, you see that it had been tamed by oppressive rulers for 70 years, who threatened people's livelihoods, imprisoned them, killed them, and so on, but these Islamic peoples have begun to understand their duty toward this land.

Look at these Jihadist movements, like Hamas and others. We have heard brother Abu Abed [Ismail Haniya] say: "We shall never recognize Israel, and we shall work toward the liberation of Palestine in its entirety, from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea."

This is what happened when the Palestinian cause became alive in the souls of its people. A cause is sustained in people's hearts by means of blood. Just as a plant derives its life from water, and the more you water that plant, the more it will take root in the depths of the earth, and shoot its branches up to the sky, thus the people of Palestine shed their blood, and when this blood boils, and the veins explode, the people become more inspired and motivated to fight them.

Therefore, this is the path. The Jihadist operations and the martyrdom operations constitute the path to which Allah guides us.
