During an interview on the Turkey-based MB-affiliated Channel 9 TV, Libyan researcher Dr. Ali Al-Siba'i said that the Jihad that terrifies the world today was sanctioned by shari'a law in order to establish justice, and that humanity was relieved of oppression, exploitation, and plundering when Islam "spread its wings throughout the world." He said that the Europeans and the Americans inherited their imperialist-colonialist mentality from the Romans, and that they can only be stopped by Muslims through the use of offensive Jihad. He also said: "Look who [Allah] has sent to rule over us - the Jews, whom the Quran called 'most despicable creatures of Allah.' The descendants of apes and pigs rule over us and inflict upon us all kinds of torment." The interview aired on October 27, 2018.
