The Times of London is afraid that jihad might break out in Israel. Gosh! Not in Israel of all places! It’s unimaginable!
AN Israeli-Arab religious leader who preaches holy war is attracting support from hundreds of people, fuelling fears among Israel’s security services that Al-Qaeda is poised to establish a foothold in the country.
Sheikh Nazem Abu Salim, 40, an Israeli citizen and imam at the most prominent mosque in Nazareth “” Shihab al-Din”” has called for jihad in Palestine in an Islamic magazine that he publishes from his headquarters in the city.
“The jihad should take place in Jerusalem,” Nazem, a biochemistry graduate of Beersheba University, wrote in the magazine, Ansar Allah. The publication is the print version of a website the sheikh used to run that was shut, possibly by Israeli intelligence. The site attacked the American onslaught on Falluja in Iraq and praised the resistance of its warriors.
Nazem is also distributing one of the most important books of the global jihad, Al-Taifa al-Mansura. Written in 1993, it directs Islamic fundamentalists to take over all Islamic communities.
