A Palestinian cleric preaching outside Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque this month called on Allah to facilitate the “slaughter” of Americans, Europeans and various Arab leaders.
Sheikh Nidhal Siam, known as Abu Ibrahim, castigated the regimes of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, calling both “collaborators” with the Americans and the English.
He called on Allah to “enable us to slaughter… the Americans… the Europeans,” and the “criminal and treacherous” Arab rulers he had mentioned.
A video of his sermon was posted on YouTube on June 18 and subsequently reposted and translated by the watchdog group Middle East Media Research Institute.
“Do not think that some of the collaborators are right and some are wrong. They are all equally collaborators. Just as the Saudi regime is a lackey of the Americans, and is immersed in collaboration with them, the Qatari regime is a lackey of the English, and is immersed in collaboration with them,” Siam said. “All these [regimes] are like riding beasts ridden by the superpowers.
“Oh Allah, enable us to slaughter the Americans!” he continued, as his listeners said “Amen!”
Siam then said “And the Europeans!” and later: “And our criminal and treacherous [Arab] rulers!”
After each proclamation the listeners chanted another amen.
The cleric concluded: “Oh Allah, bring about their downfall soon! Oh Allah, do not leave a single one of them on the face of the earth!”
His listeners again intoned an amen.
