Mashal’s speech urged people to undertake a personal form of “Jihad by their souls”. He encouraged Muslims, especially those residing in countries neighbouring Israel, such as Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt, to engage in physical resistance. He advocated for individuals to make their way to the borders and attempt to enter, each in their own way, marking a shift from theoretical to on-the-ground action.
In his closing words, Mashal emphasised the importance of sacrifice, calling for the contribution of “blood and souls” in the struggle for Palestine.
