A Palestinian preacher held a rally calling for the Muslim Caliphate to return and 'annihilate' Jews on Saturday, as he stood at Judaism's holiest site. 

"Allah willing, the Caliphate will be the one to liberate Jerusalem very soon, after annihilating the rulers of the wicked [Arab] mini-states,... and it will annihilate the Jewish entity," Palestinian preacher Ali Abu Ahmad said, accusing the Jews of "storming the place of the Prophet's nocturnal journey and defiling it." 

He further called upon Allah to "annihilate the Jews" and to "bring the whip of torment cracking down upon them." 

 Footage of the rally was translated by the Middle Eastern Media Research Institute (MEMRI). 

Ahmad also incited against the West - including the US, Europe, Russia, and even Muslim states, stating that they are "killing Muslims everywhere" and that the "armies of the Islamic nations are our guns" against them. 

"But soon, Allah willing, very soon we shall regain those guns - and we shall turn them against the enemies of the Islamic nation: the Jews, the Americans, and the Russians," he vowed.

Islamist preachers regularly make incendiary addresses on the Temple Mount, despite pledges by the government to crack on incitement there.
