Hizb ut-Tahrir, an Islamic organization which aims to have all Muslim countries unify as a caliphate ruled by Islamic law, held a mass rally at the Al-Aqsa Mosque last week, in which members of the group called upon the army of Pakistan and the Islamic nation to liberate Jerusalem from “Jewish filth”.
Excerpts from footage of the rally were posted on the internet and translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
The same group last year released a video which shows Palestinian Arab children at the Al-Aqsa Mosque calling for the “liberation of Palestine”.
These two videos are only two examples of the anti-Israel incitement which is prevalent in the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Such incitement ranges from the glorification of Nazism and the lionization of Adolf Hitler, to programs on official PA television featuring heavily-stereotyped Jews as villains (and encouraging violence against them), and various TV and radio shows which literally wipe the Jewish state off the map.
In April, an imam from the Al-Aqsa Mosque participated in a conference in Milan, where he called on “Arab legions” to attack Jaffa and Haifa.
