In an address dedicated to the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections, delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian cleric Sheikh 'Abd Al-Salam Abu Al-'Izz said that Muslims should not wait for Trump to start a nuclear war, but rather toss all Muslim rulers "into the garbage bin of history" and "take the Pakistani nuclear weapons from those criminals and use them in the service of Islam." He further said: "We should take these armies in order and eliminate the state of the Jews in one or two strikes." The address was posted on the Internet on November 16, 2016.


Following are excerpts



'Abd Al-Salam Abu Al-'Izz: The Muslims' reaction to Trump's victory was: "Hopefully, he will destroy [the US] and sit on its ruins. May he engage in nuclear wars, from which [the Muslims] will emerge intact." This is not how things go. What is supposed to happen is that the nation of Islam will rise, and take its matters into its own hands. It should assume control and command over its armies. It should get rid of the governments, kings, sultans, sheikhs, and emirs. It should toss them into the garbage bin of history. It does not matter whether we hang them on the gallows or not. What matters is that we should We should take the armies and the weapons from them. kick them out and move forward. We should take the Pakistani nuclear weapons from those criminals, and use them in the service of Islam. We should take these armies, and eliminate the state of the Jews in one or two strikes, and then bring Islam everywhere in the world.
