A spur of the moment speech by a Muslim at the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount called for annihilation of the United States.
The speech was translated and posted this week by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), and the video shows the young man, named Ali Abu Ahmed, railing against the Jews and West.
Ahmed’s voice and delivery definitely show him as having great potential to be a real Islamist preacher, breathing fire and brim storm against the evils of Islam, mainly Israel, Jews and the United States. The Palestinian Authority should place him on the “Arabs Got Talent.”
The “freedom of speech” in the mosque is a result of “goodwill measures” by Israel, at the insistence of the United States and King Abdullah of Jordan, to “reduce tensions” by eliminating restrictions on the ages of who can enter the Temple Mount.
If this reducing tension, what does “escalating tensions” mean?
Ahmed spoke from the mosque that is Islam’s third most holy site, proving once again what the worshippers pray for.
The Western world, as well as Israeli Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovitch and national police commissioner Yohanan Danino, don’t want Jews praying near the mosque or even on the Temple Mount at all.
They are afraid that a Jewish presence will cause violence, but the freedom of people like Ahmed to scream for the destruction of Israel and the United States apparently is not incitement. It is the radical Islamic version of prayer.
If Jews were allowed to pray on the Temple Mount, the prayers for peace would certainly upset the Muslims. If there were peace, their preachers would be out of a job.
As for the speech itself, which can be seen with English sub-titles in the video below, Ahmed said Jews are “the most vile of creatures. Tune in around 2:00 into the video, towards the end, and you can see and hear Ahmed declaring,” Oh, Allah, annihilate America and its coalition.”
