Islamic cleric warns America facing destruction
An Islamic cleric from Lebanon is forecasting the destruction of the United States within 20 years, according to a new report from MEMRI Television.
An Islamic cleric from Lebanon says the United States won’t survive beyond two more decades
“Let me bring good tidings to the Muslims,” Al-Qat states. “Allah willing, the American empire will very soon collapse.”
He explained Americans now “object to any talk about the destruction of the state of Israel. … They are celebrating its 60th anniversary.”
Then came his prophecy: “We say that Allah willing, within 20 to 12 years, America will collapse. This won’t happen as a result of war. Not at all. Allah will send to America an American Gorbachev, from within. Gorbachev, who brought about the USSR collapse, was one of them.
“Everybody knows this story,” he said. “An American Gorbachev will surface in America, and he will destroy this empire.”
The report followed MEMRI’s feature of a Palestinian show that had President Bush “killed” and a children’s Mickey Mouse-lookalike being “martyred” for the Palestinian cause.
MEMRI is an independent nonprofit that provides translations of media reports from the Middle East and analysis.
The organization previously has documented a children’s TV show about Nahoul, the bee, weeping over his “martyred” family.
Hamas, which won a majority in parliament in January 2006 elections, officially is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. government. As WND reported, a prominent Hamas leader was captured on video boasting of using children, women and the elderly as human shields in its firefights with Israeli soldiers.
WND also reported Hamas launched a children’s website in 2002 that encourages kids to follow the example of terrorist suicide bombers.
