Gaza Cleric Brandishes Knife During Sermon, Calls on West Bank ‘Brethren’ to Keep Stabbing, Killing Jews (VIDEO)
A Gazan cleric called on West Bank Arabs to kill Jews last Friday, according to a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
Muhammad Salah, known as “Abu Rajab,” made this appeal during a sermon at Al-Abrar Mosque in the city of Rafah in Gaza.
“This is the West Bank! This is the place of bombs and daggers,” Salah shouted out during his sermon. “This is Jerusalem!” he continued, saying that the holy city was “where the soldiers of the Prophet Muhammad are [located],” referring to the Palestinians who were carrying out stabbing attacks against Israelis.
Salah continued, “Today, we realize why [the Jews] build walls. It is not to stop missiles, but to prevent their throats from being slit.”
Turning the direction of his speech to his fellow Palestinians, Salah produced a knife and shouted, “My brother in the [West] Bank: Stab!”
“My brother in the West Bank,” Salah repeated, “Stab the Talmudic myths in their minds! My brother in the West Bank: stab the myths of the Temple in their hearts.”
Salah added that, through the stabbing attacks, Palestinians had imposed their own curfew on Israel. He said that this was only the “first phase of the operation.”
“In the next phase which, Allah willing, is on the cusp of implementation, we shall not send you [Jews] back to Russia, Bulgaria, the Ukraine or Poland,” he said, reiterating a common myth among Palestinians and their supporters that all Israeli Jews are Europeans.
“We shall not send you back there. You have come here, and the Islamic military court has issued its decree, presided over by the Prophet [Muhammad’s] Companion Sa’d Ibn Mu’adh.”
During the Battle of the Trench, Sa’d Ibn Mu’adh presided over the judgment of the Jewish Banu Qurayzah tribe, decreeing that their warriors should be killed and their women and children taken as captives.
“Sa’d Ibn Mu’adh has reappeared in the West Bank. Sa’d Ibn Mua’dh is now in the steets of Jerusalem, Afula, Tel Aviv and the Negev, ” said Salah, once again brandishing his knife, and this Islamic military court over which Sa’d presided had “made a ruling by divine decree: all that you [Jews] will have in our land is slaughter and stabbing.”
He then called on his congregants to deliver the message of his sermon to the “men of the West Bank: Form stabbing squads. We don’t want just a single stabber. Oh youth of the West Bank: Attack in groups of three and four. Some of you restrain the victim, others attack him with axes and butcher knives…cut their bodies into parts.”
