    Muslim Preacher on Temple Mount: Restore Worldwide Islamic Rule
    11:59 Feb 26, '06 / 28 Shevat 5766
    By Hillel Fendel

    Sheikh Ismail Nawahda, preaching to Moslem masses on the Temple Mount
    in Jerusalem on Friday, has brought it out into the open: the call to
    restore the Moslem Khalifate, or, "Genuine Islamic Rule."

    A plan for the "Return of the Khalifate" was published secretly in
    2002 by a group called "The Guiding Helper Foundation." The group
    explained that it wished to "give direction to the educated Muslim
    populace in its increasing interest in the establishment of Islam
    as a practical system of rule."

    This past Friday, Feb. 24, however, the plan went public. Sheikh
    Nawahda called publicly for the renewal of the Islamic Khalifate,
    which would "unite all the Moslems in the world against the infidels."

    The Khalifate system features a leader, known as a Khalif, who heads
    worldwide Islam. Assisted by a ten-man council, his decisions are
    totally binding on all Moslems.

    According to the Foundation's vision of the Khalifate, significant
    punishment can only be meted out for 14 crimes, including "accusing
    a chaste person of fornication," "not performing the formal prayer,"
    and "not fasting during Ramadan."

    The Foundation recommends working to restore the Moslem dictatorship
    using a system of small groups around the world. The purpose is so
    that the "enemies of Islam" who "will definitely try to stop us" will
    have a "much harder task, if not impossible, if they are faced with a
    myriad of small groups of differing locations, ethnicities," etc. This
    method also "ensures that if one group... is found and cut off, other
    similar groups will remain undetected."

    Sheikh Nawahda reminded his Temple Mount audience that the first step
    taken by Muhammed in stabilizing his rule was to form the nucleus of
    the first Islamic country in the city of Medina. Nawahda also said
    that the status of Moslems around the world has dropped drastically
    ever since the collapse of the last Khalifate in 1924, after Turkey
    became a democratic republic.

    Nawahda called upon the Arabs of the Palestinian Authority to rise
    above their personal and party interests, and said that Moslems must
    return to Islam and join forces in the struggle against the West. He
    praised the worldwide protests against the anti-Muhammed cartoons, and encouraged the Moslem public to continue such activities. He implied
    that those who insulted Muhammed are liable for death. The Sheikh
    designated the Moslem masses as a strong point that can be utilized in
    the fight against the West.
