If anyone wants the horrid history and brutality with which Jews were treated in Muslim lands, read Sir Martin Gilbert’s historical tome: In Ishmael’s House: A History of Jews in Muslim Lands. There has never been a “golden age” of tolerance and brotherhood; rather, there have been times when Jews were less oppressed, brutalized and persecuted in Muslim nations.
So here we have yet another imam caught with his proverbial pants down. Lies, lies and more lies.
The thing is, this is nothing new. Yasir Qadhi was once captured in a controversial video saying that Jews and Christians are filthy and that their lives and property can be taken in jihad by the Muslims. I reported about Qadhi’s outrageous statements about jihad in July 2013, and about other vicious Islamic supremacist statements he made in August 2013.
Qadhi quotes Muhammad saying: “I have been commanded to fight the people until they testify la illaha illa Allah [there is no god but Allah].” He also says: “The life and property of a mushrik [one who worships others besides Allah] holds no value in the state of jihad… which means if they don’t say la illaha illa Allah, their lives and property are halal” — that is, they can lawfully be seized by Muslims.
And now this. His own words demonstrate, as does 1400 years of Islamic history, that Islamic antisemitism is much older than 1947. But as for me “jumping” on this, yes, he is right: whenever he approvingly repeats this horrific call for killing Jews, I’ll “jump” again.
“WATCH: ‘Anti-Semitism Never Existed in Muslim Lands Before 1947,’ Claims Texas Imam,” United With Israel, December 8, 2019:
This “Islamic scholar” also declared that a famous verse about murdering Jews merely predicts the future, but does demand violence.
American Islamic “scholar” Sheikh Yasir Qadhi recently delivered a lecture in which he said that Muslims were never anti-Semitic before the modern state of Israel was created.
Qadhi also claimed that an oft-quoted verse proclaiming that at some time in the future “Jews will hide behind rocks and trees, which will call to the Muslims and tell them to come and kill the Jews hiding behind them.”
According to Qadhi, this hadith is not anti-Semitic in the least, and merely describes what will happen in the future.
