While giving a sermon in the Temple Mount’s Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian Islamic scholar Sheikh Issam Amira called upon the Taliban to declare a Caliphate and to conquer and liberate Jerusalem.

According to Memri, Amira made these remarks on Saturday.

The mosque and the rest of the Temple Mount, is administered by the Islamic Waqf, a religious trust which is ultimately overseen by Jordan. For years, Palestinian worshippers have been incited by incendiary sermons.
