Palestinian political researcher Ahmad Al-Khatwani said that an Islamic state, a Caliphate, is the only way to reach Islamic victory, to defeat the Jewish state, and to chop off the hands of the Americans. He made these remarks in a lecture that was delivered at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and posted on Al-Aqsa Call on YouTube on June 5, 2021. Al-Khatwani said that before Muslims fight the Jewish state, they must "do away" with their guards, meaning the Arab regimes. He said that if he wants to enter an orchard, he must first kill the guard of the orchard. Al-Khatwani continued to say that the only way to reach victory is to bring down the regimes in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.

Ahmed Al-Khatwani: "The nation of Islam cannot rise politically, ideologically, and militarily unless it establishes a real Islamic state that will represent the Muslims. Without a true Islamic state there will be no revival, no liberation, and we will not be able to shatter, terrorize, or threaten the enemy.
"Only an Islamic state, caliphate, can defeat the Jewish state, and chop off the American hands, and the hands of other colonialists, who mess with the resources of the Muslims. Only an Islamic state can do that. The politicians must pay attention to this important idea. The [Arab rulers] are a group of guards protecting the Jewish state. Before you fight the Jewish state, do away with the guards. Things will be easier then. Use your power to eliminate those guards. If I want to enter an orchard, I kill the guard first. This is like an orchard. Kill the guards. And who are the guards? The regimes in Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. This nation must bring down these regimes in a bold and clear manner. There should be no double-talk, no cajolery. Do not flatter these rulers, but bring them down them immediately. Everything must be done in order to bring down these rulers. Victory will be achieved only if these regimes are ousted."
