What he is preaching is simply standard Islamic law. Islamic Jew-hatred — it’s in the Qur’an. The death penalty for apostasy is based on the Qur’an and statements of Muhammad. That the Australian authorities think he is an “extremist” is the most troubling aspect of this, because he is mainstream.
“Imam given space to worship at an Anglican church justifies the KILLING of Muslims who renounce their faith under Islamic law – and claims Jews ‘were behind the LGBT agenda,'” by Stephen Johnson, Daily Mail Australia, March 29, 2017:
An imam given space for his worshipers to pray at a Perth Anglican church has justified the killing of ex-Muslims under Islamic law and suggested Jews are behind a gay agenda.
Feizel Chothia has published a Facebook post titled, ‘The Islamic Punishment for Apostasy’, only days after Daily Mail Australia captured the leader of a fundamentalist Islamist group calling for the death of former Muslims.
The imam has also made the declaration only weeks after he appeared on ABC television hailing his friendship with Anglican Reverend Peter Humphries.
Imam Chothia compared the killing of ex-Muslims for apostasy to Western nations executing citizens for treason, but he did not explicitly call for them to be executed.
‘Just as states such as Britain or the United States consider high treason a major crime, so Islam prescribes capital punishment for apostates,’ he said on Wednesday.
‘Certainly, the protection of society is the underlying principle in the punishment for apostasy in the legal system of Islam.’…
Last month, Imam Chothia appeared on ABC News 24 with Anglican Reverend Peter Humphries, who has offered Muslims adjoining land for a mosque.
The television segment was about how St Paul’s Church at Beaconsfield, in southern Perth, had given Imam Chothia space for Muslims to worship five years after he first knocked on their door.
‘He was looking for a place where they might hold a prayer meeting and I said, “Well, here because that’s what we do”,’ Reverend Humphries told the ABC program.
It is not suggested that the reverend condones the views of Imam Chotia.
The program said local Muslims had been coming to the church to pray every Friday.
Imam Chothia didn’t call for ex-Muslims to be executed for leaving the faith.
Secular Muslims reject sharia law and the entire idea of death for apostates.
‘The punishment is inflicted only in cases in which the apostate is a cause of harm to the society,’ he said.
‘While in those cases in which an individual simply changes his religion the punishment is not to be applied.’
But after Islamist convert Khalid Masood killed four people in London using a Hyundai Tucson SUV and a knife, Imam Chothia said news reports of terrorism benefited Western governments.
‘Attacks on Western civilisations provide a huge PR boost to the neo-imperialist agenda and free up huge sums of money to be spent on military action against “radical Muslims”,’ he said.
In another Facebook post in December last year, he described the term anti-Semitic as ‘a politically weaponised canard is an attempt to conceal what I believe the truth to be about the doctine of Jewish racial supremacist ideology as the philosophical underpinning for land thievery, terrorism and genocide in Palestine’.
He also bizarrely said Jews were behind the ‘LGBT agenda, the abortion industry, the pornography industry’. …
