“I say to the Jews explicitly, the time has come to slaughter you,” preacher Omar Abu Saara said in his speech on Nov. 28, 2014, according to a translation by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“The time has come to go to war with you, the time has come to kill you. And we, with God’s help, will destroy you, we, the Muslims, the correct ones, the faithful and the soldiers of the Islamic Caliphate will arrive to the land to free it from your dirtying, and today this is close by,” Saara added.

Israeli Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein personally approved the indictment, and the Israeli government has called for Saara to be remanded, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The indictment came on the same day as Palestinian terrorist Hamza Muhammed Hassan Matrouk stabbed 12 Israelis on a bus in Tel Aviv. Matrouk cited last summer’s Operation Protective Edge and the recent tension over the Temple Mount as his motives.
