In a Friday sermon, Gaza cleric Sheikh Musa Abu Jleidan said that the “Great Return March”  is a “form of jihad” that “does not eliminate the need for jihad by the sword, by missiles and by rockets.”

“They go hand in hand,” he said.

Speaking at Masjid Al-Abrar, Rafah, on April 27, Sheikh Abu Jleidan further said that the Jews “are the philosophers of terrorism and crime, people of treachery and deceit, who slayed the prophets of Allah.”

The sermon was posted on Sheikh Abu Jleidan’s YouTube channel.
