The only people who should be surprised by this are those who are determined to close their eyes and repeat “Islam is a religion of peace” no matter what the evidence. What this imam said about hating and killing Jews is not “extremist” Islam; it’s mainstream Islam. Why? Because it’s in the core texts and teachings of Islam, as anyone who has given them even a cursory reading knows. Islamic Jew-hatred: it’s in the Quran.
“Imam preaches about Judaism: ‘I do not think he is hurting anything,'” translated from “Imam prædiker om jødedrab: – Jeg tror ikke, han mener noget ondt med det,” Nyheder, May 11, 2017 (thanks to Jihad Watch):
An imam has preached in Copenhagen about killing Jews and has now been reported to police. But not everyone disagrees with the opinions of imam.
Newly published recordings from a Friday prayer in Al Faruq Mosque on Nørrebro show Imam Mundhir Abdallah preaching a controversial sermon.
He says, among other things, “Judgment Day does not come before Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.”
The words were spoken on March 31 of this year, but have only now appeared in a video online.
Nobody clearly distances himself
TV 2’s reporter spoke today with several Muslims at the mosque on Heimdalsgade on Nørrebro. In the two hours he was at the mosque, he did not find anyone who clearly distanced himself from the imam’s statements.
“I do not think he’s hurting anything,” said Bayan Hasan, a student.
Another person whom TV 2 met at the mosque, Mohammed Hussein, emphasizes that according to Islam, Muslims must not kill. But he does not know that Mundhir Abdallah has called for killing Jews.
Imam reported to the police
The Jewish community in Denmark has now reported the preacher to the police. And from all parts of the political spectrum today there are condemnations and calls to contradict radical preachers.
Immigration and Integration Minister Inger Støjberg (V) has today called for a clear protest from the mosque congregation.
“Had this happened in a Danish folk church, then there would have been people in the congregation who stood up and protested,” said the minister to TV 2.
Imam Mundhir Abdallah lives in Lebanon, is connected to Hizb-ut-Tahrir and apparently travels with his messages.
Despite the controversial words, he is not found on the Danish list of preachers who are banned from entering the country….
TV 2 tried to find someone from the Al Faruq Mosque leadership who could explain why they allow preachers like Mundhir Abdallah, but it has not been possible to find someone who wants to talk with us….
