Khaled Meshaal, who led Hamas from 2004 to 2017 and now lives in Qatar, has called for a global “day of Jihad.” This day will be Friday, October 13th. Meshaal called on all Muslims to “take to the streets” to protest Israel.
“[We must] head to the squares and streets of the Arab and Islamic world on Friday,” said Khaled Meshaal, who currently heads Hamas’s diaspora office. He added that those being ruled by the tyrants of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt have a “bigger duty to support the Palestinians,” according to The Daily Mail.
“Tribes of Jordan, sons of Jordan, brothers and sisters of Jordan… This is a moment of truth and the borders are close to you, you all know your responsibility,” Meshaal said in a recorded statement. “To all scholars who teach jihad… to all who teach and learn, this is a moment for the application (of theories).”
If this does become a violent uprising worldwide, tomorrow, expect this war to quickly expand and become the third world war.
Meshaal’s call for a Friday the 13th uprising was reiterated by Hamas itself, according to the Israeli-run, Washington DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“We declare next Friday, ”The Friday of the Al-Aqsa Flood,” as a day of general mobilization in our Arab and Islamic world and among the free people of the world,” Meshaal’s statement said, which was sent to Reuters news agency. Hamas has also asked all Muslims to “join the fight” and create a Jihad against all others. “We call upon the free people of the world to mobilize in solidarity with our Palestinian people and in support of their just cause and legitimate rights to freedom, independence, return, and self-determination,” the group said.
“It is a day to rally support, offer aid, and participate actively. It is a day to expose the crimes of the occupation, isolate it, and foil all its aggressive schemes. It is a day to demonstrate our love for Palestine, Jerusalem, and Al-Aqsa. It is a day for sacrifice, heroism, and dedication, and to earn the honor of defending the first Qibla of Muslims, the third holiest mosque, and the ascension of the trusted Messenger,” Meshaal said.
Gaza’s health ministry said at least 1,354 people have been killed and more than 6,000 injured in the crowded coastal enclave.
Israel has vowed to escalate the war and some of its rulers have already suggested using nuclear weapons.
Jihad means a “struggle or a fight against the enemies of Islam.” In other words, a holy war in which all are targets if they are “infidels” or not Islamic.
