On May 20, 2023, a Chicago-based Islamic charity called Islamic Oasis posted to its YouTube channel a panel titled “The Nakba Continues.” The panel was attended by Jordanian-American Hizb ut-Tahrir activist Dr. Mohammad Malkwai (also known as “Abu Talha”) and by Dr. Abdul Waheed, the leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, and it was moderated by Islamic Oasis’s president, activist Muhammad Shirazi.
In the panel, Dr. Malkawi said that Israel was established by the colonial Western powers as a “weapon” in order to distract the Muslims from re-establishing the Caliphate and becoming a threat to them. He said that “so-called genocides” and the Holocaust were “carefully designed” to “scare the hell” out of Jews in Europe so that they would flee to Israel, which he predicted will become a “graveyard” for them. Dr. Abdul Waheed said that once the Caliphate is established, the “cowardly” Jews will flee quickly.
