Muslims should “raid America on its own land and the land of heresy everywhere,” an influential Islamic leader told his audience at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque.
A prominent Palestinian political researcher recently took advantage of the stage he was given at Al-Aqsa Mosque in the Old City of Jerusalem to incite against America and call for an all-Muslim war against “true terrorism.”
In an address delivered on February 18, 2015, Ahmad Al-Khatwani, a.k.a. Abu Hamza, encouraged the crowd to pray to Allah to “enable Muslims to wage war on America” and vanquish it, MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) reports.
Muslims should “raid America on its own land and the land of heresy everywhere,” he asserted.
“What is the way to confront this American war on Islam?” Al-Khatwani asks rhetorically. “It is by treating Islam in a political manner, on the basis of the Islamic creed in its political sense. If the Muslims accept Islam as a political and ideological foundation and guide, they will be able to confront America and its war on the Muslims, and they will be able to vanquish it with ease.”
Al-Aqsa Mosque, located on the Temple Mount, has recently become the preferred site for Muslim extremists to launch verbal tirades against the US and Israel.
In December, Sheik Omar Abu Sara, a Palestinian Arab preacher, called to slaughter the Jews, whom he described as “the most evil of Allah’s creations.”

Sign the Petition to Stop Funding the Palestinian Authority
Petition to the United States and European Union
We demand that all funding of the PA be stopped immediately. The brutal murder of Israelis committed by Palestinian terrorists throughout Israel is the latest result of ongoing PA incitement against Israeli citizens. Funding the PA means funding terror.
