This is no longer the exception, but increasingly the norm. The surprise here is not what the imam preached, but that French authorities are actually investigating.
This kind of preaching has now become common practice all over the West. And that’s no surprise: Islamic Jew-hatred, it’s in the Quran. Here is yet another imam espousing annihilationist views, joining a long list of other Muslim leaders who have promoted Jew-hatred and incited violence against Jews and Israelis.
There is little difference between the norming of Islamic Jew-hatred and that of of the Nazis in the 1930s. Nothing in the mainstream press about it. No apoplectic pundits and commentators on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, waving a finger about it on the Sunday morning shows. On the contrary, daily bleating about “islamophobia” is the cultural order of the day. Again, eerily similar to the tactics of the Nazis as well.
This has also happened in the U.S.:
“French prosecutors announce investigation into anti-Semitic mosque sermon,” Times of Israel, June 30, 2018:
Public prosecutors in the French city of Toulouse announced Friday they are opening an investigation into a senior Muslim cleric who recited anti-Semitic religious passages and predicted Israel’s destruction in a sermon.
Mohamed Tatai, the imam of the newly inaugurated Grand Mosque of Toulouse and the leader of an interfaith dialogue group, is to be investigated for “possible incitement to hatred.”
On December 15 Tatai recited a Muslim text, called a Hadith, stating that on Judgment Day, the Muslims will kill the Jews.
The Prophet Muhammad “told us about the final and decisive battle: ‘Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Jews will hide behind the stones and the trees, and the stones and the trees will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him – except for the Gharqad tree, which is one of the trees of the Jews,’” he said.
He added that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was “afraid that Israel would not live longer than 76 years – as is written in the prophecies.” He then said that an Israeli journalist, whom he did not name, said the 2016 funeral of the late president Shimon Peres was “the funeral of Israel.”
The video of the Arabic-language sermon was posted in December on the YouTube channel of the Grand Mosque of Toulouse. The Middle East Media Research Institute translated the video and posted it on its website….
