(February 27, 2020 / MEMRI) In a recent address at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, a Palestinian cleric called for the Muslim nations to announce the establishment of a Caliphate, liberate Jerusalem and march on Rome and the White House.
In an address uploaded to the Internet on Feb. 4, Palestinian cleric Muhammad Ayed “Abu Abdallah” said it was “high time” for the “blood and pride of Islam” to stir in the “loyal officers and soldiers” (of the armies of Muslim countries), and for them to set out for Jerusalem to “retaliate against those evil peddlers who make deals.”
In an apparent reference to U.S. President Donald Trump’s “Peace to Prosperity” plan, Abu Abdallah said: “Respond to their deal with a resounding slap that will pulverize them! Announce [the establishment] of the Caliphate! March towards Jerusalem!”
Once Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa had been “liberated,” he continued, the armies of Islam must set out for Rome and the White House, “to that Trump, to [Russian President Vladimir Putin], and to others!”
The prophet Muhammad, he said, had promised Islam world domination.
“We will conquer it all, and rule it through the justice of Islam!” he declared.
