The September 11, 2001, terror attacks were the beginning of the collapse of the American empire, and it is only a question of time before the next "great big event" strikes the United States, a senior Palestinian terror leader who received American training warned during an interview with WorldNetDaily Tuesday.
"The Americans even now are doing everything to bring our hostility and hatred to higher levels and bring us to wait impatiently for the next great big event," said Abu Muhammad, a senior leader of the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades in the northern West Bank city of Jenin. "They deserve one more coup of this kind (like 9/11), and I am sure it is only a question of time. September 11 was the beginning of the collapse of this empire of evil."
The al-Aqsa Brigades, the declared "military wing" of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas' party, is responsible for scores of deadly shootings, hundreds of rocket attacks, and – together with the Islamic Jihad terror group – every suicide bombing inside Israel in the past two years.
Abu Muhammad also is a member of the Palestinian Authority's Preventative Security Services, which has received training and weapons from the United States and Europe. Abu Muhammad says like many members of the Preventative Security Services, he personally received training from the CIA.
Many al-Aqsa Brigades leaders also are members of Fatah's security services, including Abbas' Force 17 personal security detail. The US largely considers Fatah and its security branches to be "moderate."
Abu Muhammad said he wished "every day was another 9/11."
America, he declared, deserved the Sept. 11 attacks: "Our 19 heroes got the revenge of all the Muslims in the world and all the poor and exploited people and nations," he said. "Americans must know that their loved ones were killed because of the policies of their state and government."
Abu Muhammad went on to claim the US supports the killing of Palestinians and Muslims throughout the world.
"But not only Muslims. See what the Americans made in Latin America and see their support to the apartheid regime in South Africa," stated Abu Muhammad.
The US-trained terror leader said he was "overwhelmed with joy" when he first heard the World Trade Center and Pentagon had been attacked.
"I do not think that I ever lived moments of joy, happiness and great feelings of pride and honor like I felt when I saw the divine planes hitting the twin buildings," he said. "It was one of those moments that Allah appears and tells the believers, 'See I do not forget to punish the non-believers. Those who keep killing the Muslims and stealing their lands and their oil.”
"September 11 was a great day and the first minutes after the people understood what happened, Palestinians went out into the streets and started distributing candies and started hugging one another," he said. "Everybody felt that Allah gave us a present and that history will never be the same because Islam finally got rid of all the handcuffs that restricted and prevented it to express itself and its capacities."
Abu Muhammad warned another 9/11 is "on its way," because, he claimed, America failed to draw the "proper conclusions" from the mega-attack.
"Instead of asking themselves the right questions about why did this happened, the Americans occupied Iraq and Afghanistan," he said. "They intensified their support of the Zionists and seem not to understand that they are bringing their end about with their own hand.
"In the Quran, it is written that the non-believers will destroy their homelands and their houses with their own hands."
Still Abu Muhammad conceded that since the 9/11 attacks, the position of Islamists has been damaged.
"There is no doubt that for the moment it seems the attacks harmed the situation of the Arab and the Islamic world," he said. "America is occupying Arabic and Islamic states because of the attacks that gave the Americans the excuses to deepen its control on the Arab and Islamic world and its oil.
"But on the other hand, the Americans are in a very grave situation in Iraq, in Afghanistan and their war against what they call terror. The democratization campaigns that they are leading are for the moment bringing opposite results. We are sure that Allah will help us defeat the Americans and collapse this empire.”
