This video has surfaced that purportedly shows the “imam from the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem” vowing to revenge the death of Osama bin Laden and kill “the western dogs” responsible for his death. However, while this tape is getting a lot of hits, there is still no identification of the alleged imam from one of Islam’s most sacred mosques.
The diatribe is translated as “The western dogs are rejoicing after killing one of our Islamic lions. From Al-Aqsa Mosque, where the future caliphate will originate with the help of God, we say to them – the dogs will not rejoice too much for killing the lions. The dogs will remain dogs and the lion, even if he is dead, will remain a lion.” He then reportedly goes on to say to President Obama that “[y]ou personally instructed to kill Muslims. You should know that soon you’ll hang together with Bush Junior. . . . We are a nation of billions, a good nation. We’ll teach you about politics and military ways very soon, with god’s help,” he vowed.
The imam, however, is not named. I do not doubt that these sentiments are shared by many in the region, but I would be curious is anyone has conclusively identified this man as an imam of this mosque. All of the articles repeat his title as imam without any identification of the man.
