Sheikh Raed Salah, Leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, Prays for Terrorist "Martyrs" Who Carried Out the Jerusalem Attack

In a Friday sermon delivered in Umm Al-Fahm after the terror attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on July 14, Sheikh Raed Salah, leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel and former mayor of Umm Al-Fahm, prayed that Allah accept the perpetrators – "the sons of Umm Al-Fahm" – in Paradise and "unite them with the prophets, the righteous, the martyrs, and the pure."

 

Sheikh Raed Salah: "The Israeli occupation is responsible for all the blood that is spilled at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, without exception. The Israeli occupation is responsible for all the blood spilled at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. It is responsible for the blood of our martyrs from Umm Al-Fahm, which was shed this morning – Muhammad, Muhammad, and Muhammad.

"From this pulpit, I would like to stress this position: [The occupation] is responsible for all the injustice we suffer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, my brothers, I ask that Allah accept all the martyrs of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and that He unite them [in Paradise] with the prophets, the righteous, the martyrs, and the pure. I ask that Allah accept all the female martyrs of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and that He unite them [in Paradise] with the prophets, the righteous, the martyrs, and the pure. I ask that Allah accept those who were martyred this morning, the sons of Umm Al-Fahm – Muhammad, Muhammad, and Muhammad, and that He unite them [in Paradise] with the prophets, the righteous, the martyrs, and the pure."
