November 7, 2014 Clip No. 4587 Israeli Islamist Leader Raed Salah: Jerusalem Will Be the Capital of the Global Caliphate
In a Friday sermon delivered in Nazareth, Sheik Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement in Israel, said: ‘Inshallah, Jerusalem will soon become the capital of the global Caliphate.’ Salah further said: ‘I am confident that if the circumstances of the Muslims were as they should be, they would march to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in tens of millions.’ The sermon was posted on the Internet on November 7, 2014.
Following are excerpts:
Raed Salah: There are people who are oppressors in this land, and there are people who are the worst oppressors in the land. The worst oppressors in the land, in the eyes of Allah, are those who prevent His name from being mentioned in His mosques, and who seek to destroy these mosques. These are the worst oppressors in the eyes of Allah.
Since the Israeli occupation is using its weapons, mobilizing its soldiers, and rallying its intelligence agencies, its horses, and its donkeys, in order to prevent the name of Allah being mentioned in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and since it is striving to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque, the Israeli occupation is the worst oppressor in the land in the eyes of Allah.

The GMBDW reported last month that Sheik Kamal Khatib, the Deputy leader of the Israeli Muslim Brotherhood, had given an interview on the official Palestinian Authority TV channel in which he said that Jerusalem would be the “capital of the coming righteous Islamic caliphate” and that ‘the entire Earth’ would ‘become subordinate to the Islamic caliphate one day.”
Raed Salah is the leader of the Northern branch of the Islamic Movement, essentially comprising the Israeli Muslim Brotherhood. He is noted for often alleging that Israel is conspiring to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. (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.)
