Leder av den Islamske bevegelsen i Israel, Raed Salah, holdt 7. november en fredagsbønn der han oppfordret israelske muslimer til å marsjere mot Jerusalem og befri al-Aqsa-moskeen. Jerusalem skal bli hovedstad i det globale kalifatet, sa Salah.

Det var en klar oppfordring til subversjon og opprør. Salah forsøker å utløse jihad mot Israel. Israel kan vanskelig la en slik figur opptre fritt. Det vil ikke være overraskende om Salah fratas statsborgerskapet og transporteres til grensen.

«The caliphate will spread justice throughout the land after it was filled with injustice by America, the Zionist enterprise, the Batiniyya, reactionism, Paganism and the Crusaders,» referring to the West, Jews, Christians, Shi’a Muslims, and anyone who does not follow Sunni Islam.

Salah further said: «I am confident that if the circumstances of the Muslims were as they should be, they would march to al-Aksa Mosque in tens of millions, crossing all borders and overcoming all obstacles, and they would not be stopped by nuclear bombs, until they arrived at al-Aksa mosque, liberated it…»

He claimed that the Israeli government prevents the name of God from being spoken at al-Aksa Mosque and therefore «the Israeli occupation is the worst oppressor in the land in the eyes of Allah.»

On March 4, Salah was sentenced to eight months in prison and three years on probation for inciting to violence in a 2007 speech.

In the 2007 speech, Salah urged supporters to start a third intifada in order to “save al-Aksa Mosque, free Jerusalem and end the occupation.”

Salah kvier seg ikke for å bruke blodbakvaskelsen mot jødene. Den er en standardanklage i antisemittenes repertoar at de hevder jøder bruker andres blod til å lage påskebrød.

Salah’s speech also attacked Jews: “They want to build their temple at a time when our blood is on their clothes, on their doorsteps, in their food and in their drinks. Our blood has passed from one ‘general terrorist’ to another ‘general terrorist’… We are not those who ate bread dipped in children’s blood.”
