Ali Abu Ahmad, Preacher at Al-Aqsa Mosque: May Allah Annihilate America and Its Coalition

In an impromptu sermon at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Palestinian preacher Ali Abu Ahmad called upon Allah to annihilate America and its coalition. "Oh Allah, enable us to cut off their heads," he said. We want a Caliphate that "will liberate Jerusalem from the Jews, the most vile of creatures," he said. The sermon was delivered on November 21, 2014 and was posted on the Internet.


Ali Abu Ahmad: "Who will come to the aid of Islam, if not us? Who will come to the aid of Jerusalem, if not us? Who will come to the aid of the Caliphate, if not us, oh servants of Allah? Do you want America to bring you a caliphate tailored to its interests? Such a caliphate would sanction the killing of Muslims, would shed their blood, and would violate the honor of their women, in the name of Islam. Absolutely not, oh servants of Allah. We want a caliphate in the path of the Prophet, which will protect lives, will defend women's honor, and will liberate Jerusalem from the Jews, the most vile of creatures."

"Oh servants of Allah, do not resort to the international community. Do not resort to the international institutions or the Security Council, for they are the ones who brought the Jews to the land of Palestine. They share the blame for their barbaric crimes against the Muslims in Palestine. Seek refuge in Allah the Almighty, the Avenger. Only Allah can break the backs of America and the Jews, as he did to Pharaoh and Nimrod."


[...]


"Do not be deluded by the arrogance of the Jews, or by their crimes against the Muslims of Palestine. This is merely a prelude to their elimination, Allah willing, at the hands of the loyal mujahideen within Palestine and abroad."


[...]


"Oh Allah, annihilate America and its coalition. Oh Allah, enable us to cut off their heads. Oh Allah, help our brothers, the mujahideen in the land of Iraq and Syria."
