Saudi Cleric Muhammad Al-Arifi: Israeli Soldiers Too Scared to Leave Their Tanks to Urinate or Defecate; Palestine Will Be Liberated Through Force, Not Negotiations

The following excerpts are from a show with Saudi cleric Muhammad Al-Arifi, which aired on Iqra TV on April 10, 2010.

Muhammad Al-Arifi: We expect the realization of the words of the Prophet Muhammad: “You will fight the Jews and you will kill them, until the trees and the stones say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, a Jew is hiding behind me, come and kill him – except for the Gharqad, which is the tree of the Jews.” By God, the Jews are expecting this, and Allah will make this come true.


Would you believe that one of the medicines most often prescribed to [Israeli] soldiers are anti-diarrhea pills? Do you know what diarrhea is? Diarrhea is when the stomach suddenly discharges its excrement. They are so terror-stricken that their stomachs just go, so they give them these pills to make their stomachs stop.

There are different types of tanks. Some tanks have a place for urinating and defecating, because sometimes they sit for 8-10 hours in their tanks, and they may feel the urge. The older tanks do not have such a place. When they are on patrol in the old tanks and they need to urinate or defecate, they have to get out of the tank, urinate or defecate, and come back. They are so scared that they don’t go out, so either they wear diapers, or they defecate and urinate into bags. People, this confirms what Allah said: “Disgrace has been decreed for them wherever they may be.”


Strangely, some people are convinced that Palestine will be liberated through negotiations, councils, and committees. By God, if making concessions and negotiating could liberate Palestine, it would have been liberated forty years ago. Every possible concession was made. What more do they want?

What was taken by force will be restored only by force, as conveyed by the Prophet Muhammad, who said: “You will fight the Jews.” He did not say: You will conduct negotiations, they will make concessions, and then you will make concessions, and then we will reach a compromise and divide Jerusalem... By God, Jerusalem will not be divided. He said in the hadith: “You will fight the Jews and kill them.” It was the Prophet Muhammad who said this, not me.
