Islamists slam America, Israel: US President Barack Obama is a fool for supporting Israel, the head of Jordan's Muslim Brotherhood said in a sermon Friday, as Arabs across the Middle East rallied against the Jewish state.
Friday's Global March on Jerusalem is the harbinger of the liberation of Jerusalem and Palestine, Sheikh Hamam Said told followers, adding that Arab and Islamic peoples refuse to sign peace treaties with Israel.
Said also addressed the so-called "Arab Spring," while lauding those killed in the Syrian uprising over the past year.
"They were killed as martyrs against robbery and tyranny and for the sake of Palestine's liberation," he said.
Earlier Friday, Jordanian news sites reported that some 20,000 people took part in a mass procession in Jordan. The protesters gathered at Jesus' baptism site and were planning to march towards the border with Israel.
According to reports, participants were yelling "where is the Arab League on Jerusalem?" and waving Jordanian and Palestinian flags alongside signs with anti-Israeli slogans.
