Growing Muslim Group Urges War against Israel

The self-described non-violent Hizb uti-Tahrir group of Muslims met in Copenhagen this week and urged the destruction of Israel, according to the Danish newspaper Nyhedsavisen. Approximately 600 Muslims attended the meeting of the growing organization, which calls for the re-establishment of Islamic law according to a new Caliphate as it existed in the Middle Ages.

"The Caliphate can arrive in an hour, two months or two years from now," said Fadi Abdullatif, Hizb ut-Tahrir’s president, who previously has been convicted for urging the murder of Jews. Another leader, Atta bin Khalil, called on believers to "continue their state of war against the Jewish nation."
