A sheikh giving a spontaneous sermon at the al-Aqsa mosque recently called for the “slaughter” of the Jews, saying they were “the most evil creatures to have walked this Earth.”
Omar Abu Sara was filmed at the mosque, located in the Temple Mount, on November 28. In a video made available by the Middle East Media Research Institute this week, he is seen addressing worshipers as the crowd mills about.
“Talking about the traits of the Jews requires one to get into a special mode, because we are dealing with people to whom every single vile trait has been attributed,” the sheikh says. “They were the masters of these vile traits, and they taught their secrets to others.
“These traits were registered in the Quran, which depicted all aspects of the lives of the Jews in the most abominable images,” he claims.
Abu Sara accuses the Jews of killing dozens of prophets, and attempting to kill the prophet Muhammad twice.
He says a battle with the Jews draws near, and praises the Islamic State “caliphate” as one of the vehicles for the Jewish people’s destruction.
“I say to the Jews loud and clear: The time for your slaughter has come. The time to fight you has come. The time to kill you has come…Please do not leave in our hearts a single grain of mercy towards you, oh Jews, because when the day of your slaughter arrives, we shall slaughter you without mercy.”
Throughout Abu Sara’s rant, an unseen crowd can be heard replying “amen” several times to his prophecies of wrath.
A similar sermon by a different man was filmed at the same location earlier last month, where the speaker called for the elimination of America and Israel and hailing the Islamic State terror group.
In his address, the man identified as Ali Abu Ahmad called for Jerusalem’s liberation from “the Jews, the most vile of creatures” and for the annihilation of America and the international coalition against Islamic State.
“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,” Abu Ahmad called out in the main hall of the mosque.
“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?” he cried as many people milled around, while several sat and listened.
