Sheik Khalid Abdullah, a popular Egyptian cleric known for lecturing in Cairo's major mosques, called on the people of Gaza to conduct suicide attacks against Israel in response to Operation Pillar of Defense.
In his statement, which appeared on Al Nas TV on November 15, Abdullah told Gazans to “go back to suicide attacks, with the will of God, against the Zionist entity.”
“You only die once,” he said, “so make it for the sake of God. Anything but force is useless with those Jews.”
Al Nas TV, based in Egypt, promotes a radical Islamist agenda and is broadcast across the Middle East.
