JERUSALEM, Israel — Following President Donald Trump’s early December declaration that the United States is formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, crowds attending a rally at the Al-Aqsa Mosque vowed to dig Trump’s grave.
In a Dec. 6 speech, Trump said, “I have determined that it is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”
Trump also instructed the State Department to begin the process of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Shortly thereafter, Palestinian cleric Sheikh Nidhal Siam led a protest at the Al-Aqsa Mosque–the third holiest site in Islam, located in the Old City of Jerusalem–during which he implored Muslim armies to arise and “liberate Jerusalem from the filth of the plundering Jews.”
The crowds present joined Sheikh Siam in chanting, “Oh Trump, you coward, you just wait. We will dig your grave by means of the Caliphate.”
“We will cut off tongues that support peace,” they pledged, according to the Middle East Research Institute, as reported by Jihad Watch.
On Dec. 12, video footage from the rally was posted on the internet.
