WASHINGTON – According to a prominent Muslim cleric and “Leader of the Islamic Revolution,” every single Muslim in the world must wage jihad against the state of Israel, not just those in the Middle East.
Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei, who posts comments on an English language website, spoke recently at a gathering of “officials, people from all walks of life and the ambassadors of Muslim countries.”
In his speech, he said, “According to Islamic jurisprudence, once faced with the domination of the enemy over Islamic territory, all Muslims are duty-bound to campaign and carry out jihad in whatever possible form and, therefore, fighting against the Zionist regime is incumbent upon and mandatory for the entire Islamic world.”
The remarks already appear to be having an effect in the Middle East, where recently an Iranian flag was seen along with flags from the terrorist group Hezbollah in a threatening display on the Lebanon-Israel border.
