Australian Islamic Activist Ismail Al-Wahwah: The Muslim Rulers Who Recognize Israel Will Be Beheaded By The Same Knife They Used To Partition Palestine (Archival)

Ismail Al-Wahwah, an Islamic activist at the Australian branch of Hizb-ut-Tahrir has recently posted a video was streamed live on Al-Jazeera Network's Facebook page on December 16, 2017. In the video, Al-Wahwah says that Palestine can only be recaptured by the Muslims by means of Jihad, fighting, and war. He criticized Muslim rulers who recognize Israel and West Jerusalem as its capital, saying that the "criminal, infidel, hypocritical knife" with which they have divided Palestine would eventually be turned against them and be used to behead them. Al-Wahwah said that U.S. President Donald Trump, to whom he referred as a "son of an infidel woman," will be trampled underfoot, and he threatened that the Jews in Palestine will one day cry blood. He advised them to go back to where they came from in Europe, Russia, and America lest they meet their fate. The 2017 rally was held in a Sydney suburb to protest of President Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and Al-Wahwah posted the video to his YouTube channel on July 31, 2020. For more about Al-Wahwah and his imprisonment in Jordan, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 7788 and MEMRI Special Dispatch No. 7893.

Ismail Al-Wahwah: "History tells us that Palestine – and Jerusalem in particular – has been captured by nations only through Jihad, fighting, and war.


"The Jews captured Palestine through war, as did the Crusaders, and the [Islamic] nation will take it back only through war.


"Palestine is one and complete and cannot be partitioned – not to two and not to three. In the recent Istanbul Summit, every Muslim ruler – without exception – said that they recognize a Jewish state, or entity, on 80% of the land of Palestine, with West Jerusalem as the capital of the Jews, while [the Palestinians] are given only East Jerusalem... I am telling you that the very knife with which you cut Palestine is a criminal, infidel, hypocritical knife, and it will be turned against you and will cut your bodies and behead you. This knife will sever your heads from your bodies, just like you severed East Jerusalem from West Jerusalem.


"This is the accursed Trump, who signed the decision designating Jerusalem as the capital of the Jews. We say to him: “You son of an infidel woman, you may think that our nation follows the same religion as those vile and treacherous rulers. You may think that our nation will surrender to you for no reason, like the rulers did. Those treacherous rulers are your collaborators and your slaves. We will trample you and them underfoot and send you to the garbage bin of history.


"To the entity of the Jews we say: Do not rejoice.


"You shouldn’t rejoice much. The day will come when you will cry blood. There will be no place for you in Palestine.


"We extend to you the following words of advice: Whoever among you has any brains should take his passport, leave Palestine, and go back to where you came from – Paris, London, Moscow, Poland, Germany, and America. Go back to where you came from as invaders, or else you shall meet your fate, and we both know what that means."
