Palestinian Islamic Scholar Issam Amira: Nurture In Your Children The Hatred Of Britain Like Mothers Breastfeed Babies; Britain Is Responsible For All The World's Crises

Palestinian Islamic scholar Issam Amira said in a speech posted to the Al-Aqsa Call YouTube channel on September 18, 2022 that Britain is the "mother of all crimes and disasters." He blamed Britain for the Palestinian nakba, for the "humiliation" the Palestinians are suffering, and for the world's crises throughout history. He criticized the leaders of Muslim countries for offering their condolences over the recent death of Queen Elizabeth II, and recalled a visit to the British Museum in which he realized that everything in the museum had been stolen from nations. He added: "May Allah curse Britain." It is noteworthy that Amira recently gave a recorded speech at the Hizb-ut Tahrir conference in Britain (see MEMRI TV Clip No. 9749).

Issam Amira: "Britain is the mother of all crimes and disasters. It was Britain that sent the world into world wars that claimed the lives of millions. It was Britain that caused the Palestinian nakba, and the disgrace, shame, and humiliation we experience today. It was Britain that ignited the crises in the ancient world, the middle ages, and the modern world. I had the chance to visit Britain, and I was astonished by the infrastructure there. I asked: Such magnificent infrastructure — what is Britain's economy based upon? I discovered that its economy is based on stealing the money of the world's nations. Then I had the chance to go into the so-called 'British Museum," as a tourist who wants to learn about different cultures. I visited the different wings, in search for the wing of British history. However, I could not find anything British in this 'British' Museum. What I did find was an Islamic wing, a Greek wing, and Pharaonic wing, and so on. Even their museum is based on stealing other nations' treasures and cultures.

"May Allah curse Britain that caused slavery in the world, stole the wealth of other nations, and caused disasters. This is the Britain that our leaders are so proud of being loyal to. They make haste to send condolences to the British on the death of their queen, and to congratulate them on the crowning of their new king. One free and distinguished Muslim scholar said about Britain: Nurture in your children the hatred of Britain, like mothers breastfeed babies with milk that grows flesh and bone."
