Jordanian Hizb ut-Tahrir activist Dr. Mohammad Malkawi said that the Jordanian army is capable of liberating Palestine and evicting the people who came to that land from Europe, Russia, Romania, and America. He made his remarks in an interview that aired on Hizb ut-Tahrir's Al-Waqiyah TV (Lebanon) on May 23, 2021. Dr. Malkawi said that his village has a vantage view that covers all of northern Israel, which would be susceptible to "regular cannons" and tank shells, and this would not require long-range missiles like the ones used to target Israel from Gaza. He added that the same is true for the entire border between Jordan and Israel and that cannons could be placed along the border and their shells would be capable of evading Israel's missile defense systems. Dr. Malkawi, who currently lives in Jordan, was a lecturer in universities in both the U.S. and Jordan. He is also the founder of the Chicago Hizb ut-Tahrir chapter, see also MEMRI TV clip Nos 3908 and 4882.
Dr. Mohammad Malkawi: "I want to speak from my heart. I live in a place, where from the top of my house, I see the entire northern Palestine. Five to six kilometers from where I live there are heights, it is like a mountain, that stands literally on top, dominating the entire northern Palestine, which is called part of the State of Israel, today. That does not require long-range missiles or rockets like the ones in Gaza. The distance between my home, my village, the place I live in, and the farthest place in Palestine, in our area, is less than 30 km. It's a distance for regular cannons, regular tank shells.
"You don't even need the big airplanes and the rockets. And these places, along the border of Jordan, now I am talking about my area. Now, if you talk about the entire Jordanian border, it's just like that. The entire so-called State of Israel is [within range] of regular cannons, which are simple to make and simple to use. They can [go] beyond what is called the Steel Dome or the Patriot missiles, because you are shelling directly, this is not something you can intercept.
"What I am saying here is that an army, like in Jordan...I am not talking about Turkey, that has all kinds of F15s and all types of collaboration with the U.S. and Russia. I am not talking about Pakistan with a nuclear weapon. I am not even talking about Egypt, which has a much larger army. I am talking about a small country like Jordan.
"I know, and I am very certain, that an army like the army of Jordan, alone, without the help of Syria, Egypt, or anyone else, can liberate Palestine, and can evict all of those who came from Europe, Russia, Romania, and America to that land. They will run away without any hesitation, once they see that at least one army is willing to launch a war."
