Following are excerpts from an address by Raed Sallah, leader of the Islamic Movement in Israel, which aired on the Al-Jazeera network on September 21, 2012.
Raed Sallah: ‘Our souls and our blood we will give to you, oh Prophet of Allah. As for you, you haters, you midgets, you little insolent people – whether in America, in France, or in Denmark – listen to us, so we can show you who you really are. ‘You are slaves to global Zionism. You are slaves to Protestant Zionism. You are slaves to the Crusader hatred. ‘You should know that we are coming to you with the compassion of Islam to deliver you from the ignominy of your slavery. ‘You should know that Muhammad is the most popular name in Asia. Muhammad is also the most popular name in Africa. Very soon, Muhammad will be the most popular name in Europe.
[…] ‘I say to you who harbor hatred towards the Messenger of Allah that it will not be long before Allah grants us victory over you. Then, when you ask us, terrified and afraid, what we will do to you, we will say to you: You are free to go, because our goal is to shatter the subjugation of your minds to the enterprise of Herzl and David Ben Gurion.’ […]
A post from last month report on comments by Salah in which predicted that Israel actions toward the Al-Aqsa Mosque will “speed up the demise of the Zionist entity.” The Al-Aqsa Mosque is often the subject of various Global Muslim Brotherhood conspiracies theories involving alleged Israeli plots and plans to destroy the mosque.
A post from April discussed the decision by a British court to uphold the appeal by Salah against a deportation order. A post from last October discussed the deportation order itself. An earlier post reported on the ongoing support offer to Mr. Salah by the U.K. Muslim Brotherhood. Other posts have discussed the arrest of Mr. Salah in the U.K. and the support offered to him by the Global Muslim Brotherhood. A BBC producer and MEMRI have both covered the anti-Semitic and extremist views of Mr. Salah. In 2010, the Jerusalem Post profiled Mr. Salah who leads the Northern branch of the Islamic Movement, essentially the Israeli Muslim Brotherhood. Knowledgable sources report that Salah is currently back in Israel.
