caliphate in Afghanistan during an address at the Al-Aqsa mosque, according to a report by the Jewish News Syndicate.

Sheikh Amira predicted the people of Pakistan would join the caliphate and come to Jerusalem as conquerors and liberators of the Al-Aqsa mosque. The statements were posted to YouTube Aug. 21st by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

“Afghanistan should declare [the establishment] of the second rightly guided caliphate, which follows the ‘Path of the Prophet,’ and not [just] an Islamic emirate,” he said.

“Soon, the people of Pakistan will kick out their treacherous rulers, join the caliphate and follow it. All the countries of the Fergana Valley will also follow it, and join it quickly and amazingly. You will all come to Jerusalem as conquerors and liberators of our Al-Aqsa mosque, which belongs also to you and to all the Muslims.”

The Fergana Valley is a valley in Central Asia spread across eastern Uzbekistan, southern Kyrgyzstan and northern Tajikistan. It is a religiously conservative Islamic area subject to radicalization.

Some prophetic observers believe the fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban will accelerate the formation of an Antichrist coalition, which will include countries in the Middle East, North Africa, Russia and China that will launch an assault on Israel.

With $80.0 billion in military equipment left behind by the U.S. in Afghanistan, it is possible the attack on Israel will include weapons supplied by Americans.
