Imam Usama Abdulghani spoke at the "Al-Aqsa Flood" protest at the Ford Centennial Library in Dearborn, Michigan on October 14, 2023, saying: "We are lucky to be alive in the era of Imam Khomeini, the leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran." He continued to say that October 7 was a "day of God," a "miracle come true," and he acknowledge IRGC Qods Force commander General Qassem Soleimani.

Abdulghani said that the "lions" are defending not only Palestine, but the nation of Muhmmad the Messenger. He added that the "honorable soldiers" of Palestine have chosen the only path to victory. Abdulghani asked: "How dare you compare Hamas to ISIS?" He added that Israel is worse than ISIS. Addressing the "friends of the Zionist occupiers," he said they should advise their friends that "the jig is up," that Israel is over, "the Titanic is sinking."

The event was organized the by Al-Quds Committee, and another speaker at the event was Islamic poet Hassan Salameh. For more about Dearborn, Michigan Imam Usama Abdulghani, see MEMRI TV clips nos. 9616, 9602, 8073, and 7284.

Usama Abdulghani: "We are lucky to be alive in the era of Imam Khomeini, where we witness these kinds of victories. Brothers and sisters, the operation Al-Aqsa Storm, that day when it took place was definitely what we call a 'one of the days of God.'

"It is true, the brothers who were there, they planned, they trained, they made every effort, blood, sweat, and tears, but they will be the first to tell you – it was the help of God that made that social miracle come true, and we were able to witness this, by the grace of Allah. So first of all, we thank Allah for being here. We also thank all of those who resisted and made this a possibility, and we cannot forget those who made this a possibility with their blood, sweat, and tears, like the martyr Qassem Soleimani.


"We first address those lions, who are defending not just Palestine, but they are fighting on behalf of the entire nation of Muhammad the Messenger.


"The way that your youth have chosen, the way that your honorable soldiers have chosen is the only path to victory.


"How dare you compare Hamas to ISIS? You had ISIS in your hospitals. Who created ISIS? That's right, Donald Trump told us. ISIS was founded by Obama.

"So you created ISIS, you helped ISIS, you are ISIS, but you are much, much worse than ISIS.



"To the friends of the Zionist occupiers, to the friends of the colonialists, tell your friends: The jig is up. Tell your friends to get out. You know, all of us know – this time it's different. If you really care about Israel, tell them to get out, tell them it is over, the Titanic is sinking."

Protesters: "No to humiliation! No to humiliation! No to humiliation! No to humiliation!"
