Video: Mohammed Khalifeh Encourages Destruction of Israel, Infidels

The man who denied this week having written an editorial promoting 'resistance' as a 'sacred duty of Jihad', and who was subsequently suspended from his position with the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County, once posted a video that glamorizes Gaza-based terror groups. 

On November 18, 2012, Mohammed Khalifeh, the founder, CEO and Editor in Chief of Al Forqan Newspaper‎ printed in Windsor, posted a video on his Facebook page accompanied with the following caption: “The grandsons of al-Mukhatr – a poem dedicated to the mujahideen of Gaza and Palestine. We ask Allah to help them, to plant their feet firmly. I hope you like it.”

In newspaper reports this week, published after B'nai Brith brought the editorial to national attention on its website, Mr. Khalifeh denied supporting terrorist acts. “We do not support any terrorist act," he was quoted as saying. "And we try to stand against all extremism, especially in the Middle East, like ISIS and al-Qaida and all those kinds of groups.”

The following is the transcript of Khalifeh’s poem “Gaza” (originally in Arabic), which is now marked as private on Khalifeh’s official YouTube channel:

Gaza

Fire [at Israel]

Fire because you are courageous

Fire because you are the typhoon

Show them your bravery, raise your head, show them the descendants of the [Caliph Omar] al-Mukhtar [ conqueror of Jerusalem]

Break your shackle, show your sword, destroy the siege imposed on you

Destroy the brutal Zion [Israel]

Destroy the foundations of the morally corrupt people

Destroy the hostile enemy

Shake the thrones of the infidels

O Palestinian, do not compromise

Remove the disgrace of your [Muslim] nation

O Palestinian, O fighter

You are a free man made of steel

Fire because you are courageous

Fire because you are the typhoon

Show them your bravery, raise your head

Show them the descendants of the [Caliph Omar] al-Mukhtar [conqueror of Jerusalem]
