Mohamad Hisham Khalifeh (محمد هشام خليفة), a Canadian of Lebanese descent, is the founder, CEO and Editor in Chief of Al Forqan Newspaper‎ (جريدة الفرقان) printed in Windsor, Ontario and distributed in Windsor, London and Detroit.

Khalifeh is known of his open support of the Palestinian armed struggle against Israel. On November 12, 2012 he posted a poem spurring the Palestinians to launch armed attacks on Israelis, liberate Palestine and destroy the State of Israel. The Israelis, namely the Israeli Jews, are portrayed is Khalifeh’s poem as “infidels” and “morally corrupt people.”

Khlifeh recorded himself reading the poem and embedded the audio file in a video clip featuring armed operatives of the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas firing rockets from Gaza aimed at Israel and training to launch attacks on Israeli targets.

The following is the transcript of Khalifeh’s poem “Gaza” (originally in Arabic), which appears on Khlifeh’s official YouTube channel:

Gaza

Fire [at Israel]

Fire because you are courageous

Fire because you are the typhoon

Show them your bravery, raise your head, show them the descendants of the [Caliph Omar] al-Mukhtar [liberator of Jerusalem]

Break your shackle, show your sword, destroy the siege imposed on you

Destroy the brutal Zion [Israel]

Destroy the foundations of the morally corrupt people

Destroy the hostile enemy

Shake the thrones of the infidels

O Palestinian, do not compromise

Remove the disgrace of your [Muslim] nation

O Palestinian, O fighter

You are a freeman made of steel

Fire because you are courageous

Fire because you are the typhoon

Show them your bravery, raise your head

Show them the descendants of the [Caliph Omar] al-Mukhtar [liberator of Jerusalem]

Intifada stabbing attacks aimed at Jews are “sacred duty of jihad”

Khalifeh’s editorial on the front page of Al Forqan (Issue 33, October – November 2015, p. 1) was dedicated to the Palestinian al-Quds Intifada (violent struggle including terrorist attacks), also dubbed the Knife Intifada.

According to the Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, during the ongoing al-Quds/ Knife Intifada (September 13, 2015 – February 7, 2016 the number of people murdered in Palestinian terrorist attacks reached 31 and 304 people were injured (28 of them seriously). The Palestinian new wave of terrorism included 119 stabbings, 41 shootings and 23 car rammings in addition to firing rockets (from Gaza), detonating explosive charges, and many thousands incidents of firebombings and stone/rock throwing.

The Palestinian al-Quds Center for Research documented during October 2015 to January 2016) 90 stabbing attacks, 50 thwarted stabbing attacks, 91 shooting attacks, 24 car ramming attacks, 1,100 firebombing attacks and 3,321 stone/ rock throwing attacks

In his editorial, Khalifeh hails the Palestinian youths who go armed with knives in a mission to stab Israeli Jews. Khalifeh explains that by carrying out the stabbing attacks the Palestinian youths fulfil the “sacred duty of jihad” and defend the “honour and dignity” of all Arabs, all Muslims and in fact all mankind.

The following is Khalifeh’s editorial (originally in Arabic):

The Duty of Jihad

“Everyone carries out the jihad in his/ her way, that what said to me one of the pilgrims [in Mecca] and this summarizes the course of events in our Arab and Islamic countries, armies and parties, weapons and munitions, rockets and [fighter] jets… and the Palestinian teenager is [standing] alone wielding a knife in his hand, defending the honour and dignity of every Arab and every Muslim, and moreover every person. He [the Palestinian teenager] does not accept the injustice in the face of the Zionist usurper.

“The Knife Intifada, initiated by the sons of al-Quds [Jerusalem] who scarified their souls, exposed the falsity of the allegations made by those who espouse the duty of jihad and fight in Syria and Iraq and everywhere but not in Beit al-Maqdis [Jerusalem]. The executions of Jerusalemites (children, women and elders) did not move the manhood in the heads of the leaders of the Arab and Islamic nation! The violations against the holy site in al-Quds [Jerusalem] have not affected those who protect the holy shrines! [Note: the killing of the Palestinian terrorists during attack by Israeli forces is portrayed by the Palestinian Authority and Hamas as “executions”]

The Knife Intifada was born orphan from the womb of a bereaved mother, but the sons of this sacred place with the determination of the heroes will be mentioned in history of this nation that in the midst of the current events there was a group which recognized the right of the sacred duty of jihad!

Unlike the one who claims everyday that he is defending al-Quds [Jerusalem] and draws on a map the way towards it. You would see them in all countries but Palestine, such as Hezbollah [in Lebanon],

ISIS [in Iraq and Syria], the fundamentalist jihadists [in the Muslims countries], the Houthis [in Yemen], Boko Haram [in Nigeria], Popular Mobilization Forces [in Iraq] etc., all of them want to liberate al-Quds [Jerusalem] but they lost the compass!!!

May Allah forgive those who truthfully knew the way to al-Quds [Jerusalem]. May Allah forgive the Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab [who conquered Jerusalem in 635] and the leader Salahuddin Al Ayyub [who conquered Jerusalem in 1187]. I’m asking Allah to give victory to the youths of Palestine and every freeman who does not accept injustice and shame.”

He needs to be publicly decapitated as his type have done to innocent peoples! …or firing squad. They bully our sensitivity into believing we are the ones harming them??? …and all Lieberal bullshit won’t change my position.
This absurdity needs exterminating. Rats become lethal when allowed to multiply. They even start eating themselves – WOW what an eventuality to comprehend! LOL! The sooner the better for those of the sane free world.

This Hate Preacher is doing nothing more than stating what every Muslim in this Country has an obligation to do, to Canadians, when the time is right. He should be deported back to the country of his ancestors.

Trudeau, who is trying to out do Merkel with his importation of Fifth Column Muslims, Should be shot in the head, via his rectal orifice.

The thing about eating a poison pill is that by the time you realize what you have done, it’s too late… and accepting these ‘people’ into Canada is a poison pill.

Anyone know where this asshole lives?

If this can not be construed as HATE Speech – what the hell could be?? Yet a person spreading the message of love & tolerance are being litigated into criminals – is being accepted as socially acceptable!?! It is time to hold to account lawyers & judges who are the ones exercising this barbaric nonsense.

Jonathan D Halevi. Good work as usual Jonathan. Please forward your intel to the CIA. This punk Khalifeh is publishing his violent hate speech in Detroit. The USA would no doubt put him on the watch list at the very least. Our PM will do nothing of course except quietly promote this filth.

Dear Diary;
Banksy Moon from the United Nations finally dropped by to give instructions to our city’s mayors, lecture our children and give me my “to-do” list.
He’s really just my guidance counsellor, but I’m the type who likes to really lift people up with positive reinforcement, so to give him some career encouragement I told him I used to be a counsellor too. Being a role model for him, he can now be inspired by my own well-earned rise to fame and power.
Everyone’s been admiring and praising my artistic genius when they’ve seen my splendid watercolour painting of the Human Rights Museum. It’s somewhere in Manitoba, I think. Being overly sensitive to other peoples feelings, I know how something so brilliant like that can be intimidating to other artists like him so, to set him at ease, I told him that I like the art that he does on the walls of buildings, but my deep appreciation and knowledge of urban art seemed to confuse him.
But that’s enough chit-chat. He wanted to talk about the changing weather and something about equality for someone, but since last year his big problem is finding some peacekeepers for Africa that aren’t too much interested in sexually abusing young children. I don’t know why he shouldn’t just keep the ones he has. I know someone in Ontario who has access to some high quality educational material on that subject that I could probably get copied and sent to him. Since we’re talking about exchanging gifts, maybe I can snag one of those nifty U.N. fridge magnets so that Sophie can put my to-do list up on our fridge.
P.S. Lloyd,
I saw the “heads up” that you posted for me, but couldn’t find your letter. But y’know, everyone who knows me also knows that becoming more popular has always been the last thing on my mind.
As Dear Leader I’ve come to power to make the really tough decisions for the benefit of all Canadians (so long as they’re bike-riding, granola-crunching, left-wing, bleeding-heart, pinko-commie, progressive, Islamic-loving, feminazi, fascists) and regardless of how many votes I might lose (which won’t really matter after I change the rules for the next election).

I can’t help but feel that our politicians and political leaders, our News Media and our political commentators who ignore this behavior by Khalifeh and his like, are directly condoning it and are as immoral and disgusting as he is. If his actions and words aren’t criminal, I don’t know what is. I guess this is just an example of what the new Canadian Culture is.

Agree with Merrill’s comments.
I see a serious problem developing in Canada right now. No rights to own guns, Muslims having entire cities built on crown government Armed Forces land. Trudeau buddy buddy with Hamas through IRFAN. Trudeau attending mosques. A ceasefire all of a sudden called in Syria, after most of the intended muslims have been bounced to Canada, the US, and the EU. A bill for $1.2 billion to resettle 25000 people that could now go back to Syria. Money that could nearly end homelessness in Canada. Compare with what’s happened in the Europe, it would seem Justin has just set up a few Islamic incubators. Is he building armies for Islamic conquest on our lands? I call it Jizya tax…

I say this clown should practice what he preaches, go over there and try to do some stabbing, see how far you get LMAO!

It always makes me sick when these fanatics forget how the middle east became Islamic , Jews were in Israel long before Islam was a religion.

The Copts need to liberate their country is more like it.
commented 2016-02-12 15:13:07 -0500
I wonder why his former home of Lebanon does less for the Pals than Israel does and has a more restrictive border? I wonder if he even notices that fact. I also wonder why he does not call for Lebanon to set aside some land for them? Oh yeah , it is called HYPOCRISY!! Seems to me they have been attacking Israel for quite some time now, has he been living in a cave for the last few decades?
commented 2016-02-12 13:57:36 -0500
This sickens and angers me on so many levels. Is this not against the law in Canada? Or is it only a crime if white people speak up against a person like this? No doubt he is a close friend to Hamas and Iran supporter Sacha Trudeau and our pm. We should be very afraid of what is happening while our government cozies up with our enemies. Proud Canadian, disgraced by our leader.

Ya Know Johnathan, publishing inflammatory rhetoric encouraging hatred and violence against an identifiable religious group sounds a whole lot like an actionable hate crime to me.

You should see if a court or tribunal agrees with that assessment.

Another Mohammadian loser. Where is Mossad when you need them ?

Time to shoot a few of these islamic terrorists dead. CIA? CSIS? Get to work please.

Deport this cretin. Can you imagine if a Jewish newspaper was calling for the same on Palestinians?

Time for Islamists to join the rest of society in the 21st century, not the 6th…

God bless Israel, and I call on those who are normal and sane, to kick this guy’s ass until he’s out of our country.

nothing better to do in Palestine than get killed by the Jews?
how anyone could be in support of these animals is beyond me.
