In a Friday sermon delivered in Antioch, Tennessee, Somali-American Imam AhmedulHadi Sharif said that the Zionists, the “number one terrorists in the world,” had “kidnapped” the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Imam Sharif prayed to Allah to “inflict Your revenge upon them” and to “make a deterrent example out of them.” He further said: “If we lose Jerusalem – know that it is not going to stop there… The enemies of Allah will come and try to destroy the Kaaba.” The Friday sermon was delivered at the Islamic Center of Tennessee, in Antioch, Nashville, and was posted on the center’s YouTube channel on July 24.
AhmedulHadi Sharif: “The Zionists, the number one terrorists in the world, had occupied and kidnapped that land a long time ago. Now they want to add the Al-Aqsa Mosque to their occupations. They kidnapped it, and the call to prayer was not raised since then.
What mosque in North America or around the world isn’t preaching the same? Vancouver imam urges sending weapons to Palestinians to fight ‘Zionists’
The imam of a Vancouver mosque is under fire for calling on Muslims to send “money, weapons and expertise” to Palestinians to fight “Zionists” in Israel.
B’nai B’rith Canada, a Jewish organization, on Tuesday released videos in which an imam at a Kingsway mosque, Tarek Ramadan, is seen referring to Israelis as “an impure gang” and Zionists as the “worst of mankind.”
Recorded this summer, the video shows Ramadan calling on his congregation to “fight, by any means necessary” against Zionists in a jihad, or holy struggle. “We are not going to be shy or wishy-washy about it.”
The video of Ramadan’s English-language talk was obtained by an international organization called the Middle East Media Research Institute, which often exposes hate speech. One of its directors is Reid Morgan, former director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service.
B’nai B’rith is calling on Ramadan to be dismissed from his position and has filed a complaint with the Vancouver Police Department.
