An International Quds Day Rally was held in Dearborn, Michigan on May 31, 2019, in front of the Henry Ford Centennial Library. A speaker whose identity is not known said that every U.S. President – not only the “idiot” Trump – was a criminal and a terrorist, and that it is only economic sanctions and “political arrogance” that is maintaining America’s standing in the world. He cursed America and the world powers for “wishing for the masses to remain silent” and abandon Palestine, and he said: “Not only will we witness the liberation of Palestine, but Allah willing, we are going to play an active role in it with our own hands.” He said that Palestine will only be liberated by Muslims, and not through American legislation or deals drawn up by “hypocrites” and “traitors.” He also said that the “beloved Leader” Imam Khamenei said that Israel will crumble in less than 25 years and that the “cancer” of Israel can only be removed through resistance and reliance on Allah. Referring to American politicians and the U.S. government as satanic, he said that Hamas, Hizbullah, the IRGC, and anybody else fighting against Israel have a God-given right to resist. Sheikh Usama Abdul Ghani, a D.C.-born Shiite imam who studied at the Islamic Seminary in Qom, Iran, also spoke at the event, saying that Israel is the “head of the snake” behind all the oppression in the world. He also referred to Israel as a “system of cancerous oppression.” The audience chanted: “Away with the humiliation!” The video was streamed live on Facebook by the Al-Quds Committee, which describes itself as “an effort to peacefully raise the voice against atrocities and human rights violations of Zionism.”
