In an address delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem that was posted to the Al-Aqsa Call YouTube channel on October 1, 2022, Palestinian Islamic scholar Abu Mahdi Baydoun said that the Palestinian Authority's new Child Protection Law is similar to a law in "infidel" Sweden under which Muslim children are abducted from their families and cut off from Islam. He called on his audience to reject the new law and to let the "collaborators" and "lackeys" of the "infidel West" know that they will "trample [it] underfoot". For more about Abu Mahdi Baydoun, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 7500.

Abu Mahdi Baydoun: "Indeed, the situation is extremely dangerous. Are we waiting for our children to meet the fate of Muslim children in Sweden? The infidel Swedish government abducts Muslim children from their parents, and from their families.

"Are you waiting for the corrupt [Palestinian] Authority to do to you what the infidel Swedish government is doing, by abducting your children, and severing their ties with their religion and their families? Oh people of the blessed land of Palestine, protect your children, for they are calling out to you. Your families are calling you for help.

"Rise to confront anyone who seeks to finish off your children. Declare your absolute condemnation and rejection of this poisonous law, this so-called Child Protection Law. Let the wolves of the infidel West know, let their collaborators and lackeys know that you will trample this poisonous law underfoot."
