Salafi Jordanian Cleric Abu Qatada Al-Filastini: True Islam Leads to Raiding Rome and Confrontation

In a recent address, Salafi Jordanian cleric Abu Qatada Al-Filastini said that if Muslims adopt the "banner of true Islam," they would be upholding an Islam that implements the prophecies about "entering each and every home" and "raiding Rome." "There can be only one outcome: confrontation," said Abu Qatada, whose real name is Omar Mahmoud Othman. The address was posted on his YouTube channel on August 12.

Abu Qatada Al-Filastini: "Our rivals accept only extermination – it's either us or them. If we raise and adopt the true banner of Islam – rather than the forged version of Islam in which the Muslims surrender to non-Muslims – we will be upholding Islam of glory and of an Islamic state, an Islam that implements the noble prophecies about the dominance of the banner of the Muslims in the world, about Islam raiding each and every home, about Islam invading Rome... This would be the glorious Islam. If we accept and believe in that [true] version of Islam, there can only be one outcome: confrontation.


"Our war today is a war of Islam against infidels, and Sunnis against heretics. That is my motto."
