Australian Islamist Leader Ismail Al-Wahwah: While Arab Rulers Are Thinking About Peace With Israel, The Islamic Nation Is Thinking About Jihad; We Could Free Palestine Within Two Weeks

Ismail Al-Wahwah, the leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia said in an August 19, 2020 episode of his weekly podcast that was posted to Hizb ut-Tahrir Australia's Facebook page that while Arab rulers are thinking about making peace with Israel, the Islamic nation is thinking about freeing the land of Palestine and carrying out Jihad. Al-Wahwah told his audience that this would be "so easy" and it would not take more than a week or two. He explained that if Muslims from Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and Iraq move towards Palestine, Israel's weapons would be worthless. In addition, Al-Wahwah said that the Islamic nation will never accept the cancer of the "Jewish entity" in its body, and that it must be removed. He claimed all Israelis carry a second "original" passport so that if the Islamic nation wages Jihad against Israel, they can "run away and go back to where they came from." For more about Ismail Al-Wahwah, including additional clips and information about his imprisonment in Jordan by Jordan's General Intelligence Directorate, see MEMRI TV Clips No. 7788 and No. 8241, as well as MEMRI Special Dispatch No. 7893.

Ismail Al-Wahwah: "The Jewish entity is a cancer, and cancer [is something] you have to get rid of. As long as there is cancer in the body, there is a big problem. The Islamic nation will never accept this cancer. If all the Arab and Muslim rulers, come together tomorrow, and put their signature [and say]: 'We accept this evil state of Israel, this Jewish entity'... By Allah, that would not change the mind of the Islamic nation.


"We are sure that this Jewish entity has no chance, no future. It is a small island in the ocean of the Islamic nation, and no island is able to take over the ocean. [This has] never happened. The ocean will take over the island, it is a matter of time. This state – they call it a state – by Allah, it is so weak, that every one of them has his second passport, [his] original passport, and they are waiting for the Islamic nation to stand up and carry out the war and Jihad against them. They will all run away and go back to where they came from – Paris, London, Berlin, Warsaw, Moscow, everywhere.


"The Islamic nation will never surrender Palestine to the Jews – that will never happen.


"If the [Arab] rulers are thinking how to make peace with this entity, how to sit down together, the Islamic nation is thinking how can we bring Saladin back, how can we free the land, how can we carry [out] the Jihad. That is what the Islamic nation is thinking. Maybe they cannot [do this] today, but as long as you know, you have the will, and you plan, tomorrow is for you, tomorrow you will win and be able to do something. And this Islamic nation, tomorrow, will do something. By Allah, it will not take us [more than] one week or two weeks. If sincere people come out from Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Iraq, by Allah, it will not take us two weeks to free the land of Palestine. [It would be] so easy. This evil state is not a true state. They are... From the bread, until the airplanes, the rockets – they take them from the West. They are not a true land, not a true state. They are trying just to trick us, [saying]: 'We are strong.' What can you do with your weapons if millions of the Islamic nation move towards Palestine? What can you do with your weapons? How will that help you? Zero. It will take us, by Allah, maximum two weeks. Two weeks, maximum, and you will be able to free the whole Palestine, from A to Z."
