Palestinian Cleric: Muslims Should Seize Pakistani Nukes, Destroy Israel in ‘One or Two’ Strikes
Muslims should seize Pakistan’s nuclear weapons and use them to destroy Israel, a Palestinian cleric declared in a sermon delivered at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque last week.
According to a translation provided by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Sheikh Abd Al-Salam Abu Al-Izz called on “the nation of Islam” to “rise and take its matters into its own hands” following Donald Trump’s recent election as the next US president.
“The Muslims’ reaction to Trump’s victory was hopefully he’ll destroy (the US) and sit on its ruins,” the cleric said. “May he engage in nuclear wars, from which (the Muslims) will emerge intact. This is not how things go.”
Instead, he said, Muslims should “get rid of the governments, kings, sultans, sheikhs and emirs” and “toss them into the garbage bin of history.”
“It does not matter whether we hang them on the gallows or not,” he continued. “What matters is that we should kick them out and move forward. We should take the armies and the weapons from them. We should take the Pakistani nuclear weapons from those criminals and use them in the service of Islam. We should take these armies and eliminate the state of the Jews in one or two strikes and then bring Islam everywhere in the world.”
