All Muslims,

00:00:02 --> 00:00:05

it is high time that we claim the

00:00:05 --> 00:00:05

narrative,

00:00:06 --> 00:00:08

and we shift the conversation.

00:00:09 --> 00:00:09

Don't be intimidated

00:00:10 --> 00:00:11

by such tactics.

00:00:11 --> 00:00:15

Don't fall prey to these types of tactics.

00:00:15 --> 00:00:18

Be brave, learn your facts, and push back.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

You want me to condemn?

00:00:20 --> 00:00:21

Yes wallahi,

00:00:21 --> 00:00:22

I will condemn.

00:00:22 --> 00:00:25

I will begin by condemning the debacle

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

of the Balfour Declaration,

00:00:27 --> 00:00:30

where all of this began. The Balfour Declaration

00:00:30 --> 00:00:33

and the Sykes Picot Agreement. Let's begin by

00:00:33 --> 00:00:37

condemning World War 1. Let's begin by condemning

00:00:37 --> 00:00:39

Great Britain, handing over a piece of land

00:00:39 --> 00:00:41

that it had nothing to do with, to

00:00:41 --> 00:00:43

a people that have nothing to do with

00:00:43 --> 00:00:46

it. Let's begin by condemning that.

00:00:46 --> 00:00:48

You want me to condemn?

00:00:48 --> 00:00:51

You want me to condemn? Let us begin

00:00:51 --> 00:00:53

by condemning the first and the second Nakba,

00:00:53 --> 00:00:54

in which 1,500,000

00:00:56 --> 00:00:57

people were displaced.

00:00:57 --> 00:00:59

You want me to condemn, you wanted me

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

to condemn genocides and massacres?

00:01:01 --> 00:01:04

Let us begin by condemning the massacres

00:01:04 --> 00:01:07

that Israel perpetrated against Palestine,

00:01:07 --> 00:01:10

beginning with Deir Yassin in 1947,

00:01:11 --> 00:01:13

where hundreds of bodies were filled up in

00:01:13 --> 00:01:15

the well of Deir Yassin. You want me

00:01:15 --> 00:01:18

to condemn you want me to condemn hostages?

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

Let's begin by condemning

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

15,000

00:01:22 --> 00:01:22

Palestinians

00:01:23 --> 00:01:26

held without trial, without any fair representation

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

in Israeli prisons. Let's begin by condemning them.

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

You want me to condemn

00:01:33 --> 00:01:34

killing of people?

00:01:34 --> 00:01:37

Let us begin by the carpet bombings that

00:01:37 --> 00:01:40

Israel constantly does for the last 25 years.

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

And as for And I'm gonna go there

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

today brothers and sisters, because enough is enough,

00:01:46 --> 00:01:49

and if we're all cowered into silence, if

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

we're all too scared to speak the truth,

00:01:51 --> 00:01:53

they're gonna get away with it. But if

00:01:53 --> 00:01:55

every one of us raises our voices, is

00:01:55 --> 00:01:57

if every one of us is brave enough

00:01:57 --> 00:01:59

to push back, Well then, insha'allah,

00:02:00 --> 00:02:03

we will achieve a level of social credibility.

00:02:04 --> 00:02:06

We will push back at the narrative. When

00:02:06 --> 00:02:08

too many people speak the truth, that is

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

what is gonna break down falsehood, and that's

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

what we need to do. So let's go

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

to the very events You want us to

00:02:14 --> 00:02:15

condemn.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:18

You want us to condemn October 7th, I

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

have plenty to condemn,

00:02:19 --> 00:02:22

even on that day. How about we begin

00:02:22 --> 00:02:25

by condemning the lies that you perpetrated

00:02:26 --> 00:02:27

about what happened on that day?

00:02:28 --> 00:02:31

Lies that went all the way from CNN,

00:02:31 --> 00:02:32

from BBC,

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

from New York Times, from every single newspaper.

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

Even our president

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

lied straight to us, and he looked at

00:02:39 --> 00:02:42

the camera and he said, I saw pictures

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

of 40 decapitated

00:02:44 --> 00:02:45

babies. Pure lies.

00:02:46 --> 00:02:47

Israeli propaganda.

00:02:48 --> 00:02:50

I will condemn and this is my condemnation.

00:02:52 --> 00:02:54

How dare you lie to us? You're supposed

00:02:54 --> 00:02:57

to be our president. You're supposed to speak

00:02:57 --> 00:02:59

the truth, and you lied to the world,

00:02:59 --> 00:03:02

and because of that lie, people were enraged,

00:03:02 --> 00:03:05

and 1,000 lost their lives. We all know

00:03:05 --> 00:03:07

it was a lie. Even the New York

00:03:07 --> 00:03:10

Times had to withdraw and retract the story.

00:03:10 --> 00:03:11

You want me to condemn? How about the

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

condemnation

00:03:12 --> 00:03:14

of your lies, of the mass rapes that

00:03:14 --> 00:03:17

you said occurred? Not a single * has

00:03:17 --> 00:03:20

been has been attested to that day. I

00:03:20 --> 00:03:20

will condemn,

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

because you're the ones who created a narrative.

00:03:23 --> 00:03:26

You're the ones who falsely construed a narrative

00:03:27 --> 00:03:29

that was then used to bomb, to kill,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

to maim, to rampage.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:34

You're the ones who falsely created a narrative.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

This October 7th did not come out of

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

a vacuum. You want me to condemn? I

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

will condemn

00:03:41 --> 00:03:41

75

00:03:42 --> 00:03:43

years of brutal occupation

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

before October 7th.

00:03:45 --> 00:03:47

That's what I'm going to condemn.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:52

Enough is enough, brothers and sisters. Enough is

00:03:52 --> 00:03:53

enough.

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

And what Gaza has done,

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

What Gaza has done

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

is that it has

00:04:01 --> 00:04:02

shown the world

00:04:03 --> 00:04:04

the hypocrisy

00:04:05 --> 00:04:07

of those who claim to champion

00:04:07 --> 00:04:09

human rights and freedom.
