Lebanese Cleric Maher Hamoud: Israel Will Cease to Exist in 2022

In a March 9 interview with the Lebanese channel NBN TV, Lebanese cleric and imam of the Al-Quds Mosque in Sidon Sheik Maher Hamoud said that according to various calculations, based on the Quran, the Torah, and astronomy, the end of Israel would come in 2022.

Following are excerpts:

Maher Hamoud: We have seen the cowardly Jew in Southern Lebanon, in Gaza, and elsewhere. The cowardly Jew fears death – unlike our youth whose [religious] conviction makes them go to their death whole-heartedly.


The end of Israel is inevitable and, Allah willing, imminent.

Interviewer: Allah wiling.

Maher Hamoud: This was [determined] in Quranic prophecies, as well as in the Torah. Without going into too many details, many of the Jews said even in the 1940s, before the state of Israel was established: "If we establish a state, it will last for 76 years." If you subtract two years more or less from these 76 years – due to the lunar calendar – you arrive at 2022. Many brothers reached this conclusion, on the basis of their analysis of the Quran and the Torah, as well as on analysis of history and astronomy.
