Palestinian Islamic scholar Mraweh Nassar, the Secretary-General of the Jerusalem Committee of the International Union of Muslims Scholars, said in a May 16, 2022 show on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that the Muslims must cut off the head of the "Zionist snake" if they want to solve their problems. He said that Allah has promised in the Quran that the Israeli occupation will end and that the Jews will "never rise again," he added: "These people will be eliminated." In addition, Nassar quoted a hadith about the Muslims fighting the Jews on Judgment Day, in which the Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, which will in turn tell the Muslims to come kill the Jews hiding behind them. He added that the world "will not remain silent" much longer in the face of the Zionists. For more about Mraweh Nassar, see MEMRI TV clips 9459, 8951, 8854, 8697, 8426, and 8246.
Interviewer: "Why is Palestine distinguished as a land where occupiers do not remain for a long time?"
Mraweh Nassar: "Palestine's geographic location — it is the heart of the world. Therefore, [geographer] Halford [Mackinder] has a theory called the 'Eurasia theory.' According to this theory, if you want to control Eurasia - Europe Asia, and Africa, which together have 82% of the world's resources — you must control the heart of the world — Palestine. So its geographic location, at the heart of the world, it being a divine choice, and its connection to the biggest enemy of the Muslims...
"[The Quran says:] 'You shall find the strongest in enmity towards the believers to be the Jews.' So if we want to resolve our problems as Muslims in general, we must cut off the head of the Zionist snake about whom Abdullah Al-Tall said: 'Its tail in Palestine, and its head is meddling in the affairs of the Muslims.'"
Interviewer: "The inevitable end of the occupation is also mentioned in the Quran. Can you give us a summary of the evidence proving the inevitability of the end of the occupation in our land?"
Nassar: "They provoke the Christians, they provoke the Muslims, they provoke the entire world. The world will not remain silent about them much longer, and they will be removed, Allah willing. It is Allah's promise, it is the promise of the Hereafter, which we await. They will never rise again, after that.
"There will be a rightly-guided caliphate, as it says in the hadith: [There will be] prophethood, then a rightly-guided caliphate, then a mordacious monarchy, then an oppressive monarchy, and then a rightly-guided caliphate. It is a promise from the hadith, that there will be a caliphate in Jerusalem: 'Oh Ibn Hawala, when the caliphate has settled in Jerusalem...'
"We are now in the fourth stage in the Islamic nation's life. The next stage is a righty-guided caliphate in Jerusalem, and these people will be eliminated. They will try to return with the Antichrist, but they will be eliminated.
"According to [the hadith] in the Bukhari, the Muslim and other hadith collections: 'You shall fight the Jews and you shall kill them, and the trees and the rocks shall say: 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him, except for the gharqad tree, for it is one of the trees of the Jews.'
"We are not talking about these Jews, but about the Jews who will join the Antichrist. This country is coming to an end, it is a failed enterprise. All the studies indicate that it is breathing its last breaths, and Allah willing we will soon pray in the liberated Al-Aqsa Mosque, Allah willing."
