Protesters at an Islamic event in Dearborn, Michigan, late last week chanted “death to America!” and “death to Israel!” on the six month anniversary of Hamas’ October 7 terrorist attack on Israel.

The protesters in Dearborn, which has been labeled as “America’s Jihad Capital”, gathered for International Al-Quds Day — a day that exists to remind the Islamic world of their opposition to Israel and the U.S.

Michigan activist Tarek Bazzi, who is affiliated with the Hadi Institute, said: “We have been asked in the past why our protests on the International Al-Quds Day are so anti-America. Why don’t we just focus on Israel and not talk so much about America? Gaza has shown the entire world why there protests are so anti-America. Because it’s the United States government that provides the funds for all of the atrocities that we just heard about.”

“This is why Imam Khomeini, who declared the International Al-Quds Day, this is why he would say to pour all of your chants and all of your shouts upon the head of America,” he continued.

As he spoke, chants of “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” broke out.

“Malcolm X said, and I quote: ‘We live in one of the rottenest countries that has ever existed on this Earth,'” he added. “It’s not Genocide Joe that has to go, it is the entire system that has to go. Any system that would allow such atrocities and devilry to happen and would support it — such a system does not deserve to exist on God’s earth. So when these fools ask us if Israel has the right to exist… The chant ‘Death to Israel’ has become the most logical chant shouted across the world today.”

He also encouraged young children at the event to repeat the genocidal chant: “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

Michigan Imam Usama Abdulghani, who is also affiliated with the Hadi Institute, said: “Imam Khomeini recognized that Israel is an evil settler colonialist project. He realized it was a cancer and he established this day.”

“Israel before this, brothers and sisters, was a sacred cow. Nobody could criticize Israel. Everybody was terrified of being anti-Semitic,” he said. “Everybody was afraid of them, but now the people of conscience very openly will criticize Israel. They recognize Israel for what it is. Israel is ISIS, they are Nazis, they are fascists, they are racists. The people of the world now know this.”
