An Egyptian child preacher, approximately 6 years old, reportedly prays for martyrdom in the name of Allah, calls for the destruction of Israel, and laments about Barack Obama and George W. Bush. The Middle East Media Research Institute(MEMRI) posted a video of one of the boy’s speeches.
During the MEMRI video the Egyptian boy had this to say:
“Oh Allah … martyrdom on the path of Allah is a religious duty incumbent upon you, oh believers. It is your path for salvation in the eyes of the Lord. Oh Islamic nation, oh all Muslims. Oh Allah, destroy Israel. Amen. May Jerusalem live on until the day of judgement. [Inaudible] the accursed Sharon, Bush and Obama.
Once the young man finishes his speech, the camera turns to focus on an older man dressed in a religious manner. The man raises his hands in prayer, appears to smile with pride at the boy. The child preacher then goes on to discuss the “accursed” Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. A complete translation of the boy’s “sermon” is not currently available.
One the unidentified young man finishes his turn at the microphone, the older man states with another smile, “You are such a beautiful boy, by Allah,” according to excerpts republished by The Blaze.
The Egyptian boy preacher video has garnered millions of views online. Although anti-Western videos are not uncommon, the contrast between the child’s sweet appearance and his violent words has spurred added interest in the recording. The young man urges the audience to follow a path of religiously-inspired destruction, according to The Algemeiner.
