MIAMI — A recent rally in Florida that was meant to show solidarity in urging an end to the war in Gaza became filled with Islamic chants in support of Hamas, Allah and Muslim jihad, reports state.
“Stop the bombing—Stop the killing—Free Palestine,” read a flyer announcing the demonstration, which was held on July 20th in Miami. Sponsors of the event included the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the American Muslim Association of North America, American Muslims for Emergency & Relief and the American Muslims Foundation, among others.
While the event was filled with signs and chants such as “No more killing; no more war” and “Stop killing our children,” video footage of the event also shows participants being led in Islamic chants in Arabic, as well as other English sentiments in support of Hamas.
“Allahu Akbar!” the group chanted, and “La illaha illallah,” meaning “Allah is great!” and “There is no god but Allah!”
“Jaysh Muhammad sa-ya ‘ud!” and “Wa’sh-shahid habib-ullah!” their voices rang out, declaring “Muhammad’s army will return” and “The martyr is Allah’s love.”
Other chants were in English, such as “We are jihad!” and “We are Hamas!”
One videographer was allegedly met with death threats and profanity when it was discovered that he was Jewish.
As previously reported, the son of Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef, Mosab Hassan Yousef, now a professing Christian, appeared on CNN on Thursday to explain that Hamas is about about more than the destruction of Israel—it is about global Muslim domination.
“Hamas is not seeking coexistence and compromise,” Yousef said. “Hamas is seeking conquest and taking over.”
“[The] destruction of the state of Israel is not Hamas’ final destination,” he continued. “Hamas’ final destination is building the Islamic khilafah (caliphate), which means an Islamic state under the rubble of every other civilization. These are the ultimate goals of the movement.”
Blogger Stephanie Kienzle likewise wrote in a recent blog post that the concern isn’t just about the Middle East, it’s about Islam being imposed upon the world.
“The consequences of the war between Israel and the terrorist organization Hamas are much more dire than most Americans realize,” she asserted. “This is not just about Israel’s right to exist … This is about freedom and democracy. It is about whether or not you want to live in a free and civil society or become slaves to the barbaric Sharia law.”
“If last Sunday’s rally of hate-filled Jihadists on the streets of downtown Miami didn’t send chills up and down your spine, you have been living under a rock,” Kienzle said.
