In his September 14 address at al-Aksa Mosque in Jerusalem, Palestinian cleric Abdallah Ayed beseeched Allah to "to vanquish America and Russia."
In a video of the prayer posted online and translated by MEMRI Ayed is seen saying, "Oh America, let me tell you about the day when the call to prayer will be heard from atop the White House, from atop the red palace in the Kremlin in Moscow," adding that "we shall shout Allah Akbar from there."
Ayed, who is dressed in white traditional garb tells his followers that Allah will attack both America and Russia "Because Allah promised us both places, Allah promised the prophet Muhammad that Islam would rule the entire land."
He added in his prayer, "Oh Allah in these blessed days and from your al-Aksa mosque, the center of blessings...we seek you to vanquish America and Russia. Oh Allah, blow up their capital cities and their planes, pulverize their ships and kill their soldiers."
The preacher said "Oh Allah we ask you to subjugate them and burn them...burn all they have with your fire."
Ayed ended his prayer by wishing a quick return of the medieval Muslim caliphate, "Oh lord bring your caliphate soon."
