New Jersey Imam Who Called for Killing of Jews Will Be Sent for ‘Retraining,’ President of Jersey City Islamic Center Says

A New Jersey imam who delivered two violently antisemitic sermons over the last month is to be sent for “retraining,” the president of the Islamic center where he serves announced on Thursday.

Ahmed Shedeed said that Sheikh Aymen Elkasaby, imam of the Islamic Center of Jersey City, would be meeting with “interfaith scholars” who would “consult with and retrain him,” following sermons in which Elkasaby called for the murder of Jews and attacked the west for having made Muslims the “tail-end of all nations.”

This has all the sincerity of Harvey Weinstein’s stint at sex rehab.

    Why do we assume that Islam is like teaching air conditioning repair?
    You don’t send him away for retraining anymore than you would send Dr. Menegle back to med school.

      Of course they sent him off for re-training.

      They found he wasn’t anti-Semitic enough for their liking.

        But will he also get IED instructions in that training?

      You can’t fix stupid.

    I hope his re-education comes from a .45 cal

    Transparent doesn’t begin to describe these psychopaths.

    50 years retraining in Mosul should just about do it.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Have the NJ Democrats declared their undying love for him yet?

  • Does that mean he will cover his hatred better?

    He just needs a minor tweaking. “It’s ok to think this but you can’t say it in public…yet. Okay?”

    “Retraining”? hmmmmm…

    It’ll still be the same quran, the one which is read by al-qaida, isis, taliban, boko haram & every other mohammed in the mosque, out in the street or at home.
    Show me the difference between these qurans then I’ll believe you that retraining can de-radicalize a mohammedan.

    He’ll be re-trained how to practice ‘tawriya’ (creative lying for muslims, it’s different from taqiyya, as instructed in quran) in western countries more diligently.
