“[A Caliphate will wage Jihad for the sake of Allah…which will liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Zionists, so that the words of the Prophet Muhammad will be fulfilled: ‘Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them’,” Abdallah preached.
Speaking in front of a black flag with the shahada (Muslim declaration of faith) written on it, Abdallah added, “[The Caliphate also] will liberate Jerusalem and will uproot the Jewish entity.”
The flag is used by Islamist terror groups such as al-Qaeda as well as political Islamists Hizb ut-Tahrir.
Jewish community leader Dan Rosenberg said to leading Danish newspaper Politiken, “We are concerned weak and impressionable people may perceive this kind of preaching as a clear call to violence and terror against Jews.”
Immigration and Integration Minister Inger Stojberg wrote on her Facebook page, “This is completely preposterous, undemocratic and awful. But it also shows why we need to lead a harsh and consistent policy. We cannot and should not accept this!”
The sermon was uploaded to Facebook and YouTube by the Al-Faruq Mosque and translated into English by MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute).
