An Imam calling for the annihilation of all Jews is in fact routine

On July 21, 2017, Imam Ammar Shahin, in a sermon at Davis Mosque in California, called for the annihilation of all Jewish people. He used a hadith (record of the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad) that quoted the prophet Mohammed:

“The last hour won’t come before the Muslims would fight the Jews and the Muslims will kill them so Jews would hide behind rocks and trees. Then the rocks and trees would call: Oh Muslim, oh servant of God! There is a Jew behind me, come and kill him, except the “gharqad” tree, it is of Jews’ trees.”

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated what he said, and then some media outlets (mostly conservative) spoke about it. Shireen Qudosi, a Muslim reformer started a petition, which I signed, urging the mosque to fire him.

It’s everyday Islam, except in Justin’s fantasy world.
