The imam of a New Jersey mosque will be sent for “retraining” after delivering anti-Semitic sermons.
Sheikh Aymen Elkasaby, imam of the Islamic Center of Jersey City, in a sermon earlier this month, called Jews “apes and pigs,” and urged his followers to: “Count them one by one, and kill them down to the very last one. Do not leave a single one on the face of the Earth.” A translated transcript of his sermon was published by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI.
He also said of Jews: “They are the most cowardly of nations. They are the weakest of all peoples.”
The speech was a rallying cry for the Al-Aqsa Mosque located on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The imam said that the mosque remains “a humiliated prisoner under the oppression of the Jews,” and called on Allah to “bring Al-Aqsa back into the fold of Islam and the Muslims.”
The president of the Islamic Center of Jersey City, Ahmed Shedeed, told the Algemeiner that Elkasaby will meet with interfaith scholars who will “consult with and retrain him.” He compared the retraining to “rehab.”
In a sermon on November 24, also transcribed and translated by MEMRI, Elkasaby invoked a conspiracy theory that Israel planned the terrorist attack on the Al-Rawda mosque in Sinai which took place the same day in which more than 300 worshippers were killed.
Shedeed said he was not present in the mosque for either of the speeches.
He noted that the Islamic Center in Jersey City had been located there for forty years. Shedeed also has served as a member of the New Jersey Homeland Security Interfaith Advisory Council.
This is the same mosque that the New York Times painted as part of “peace lab” where:
Cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point taking a course called Winning the Peace spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Jersey City
…for two days, they were welcomed as overnight guests of the Islamic Center of Jersey City.
“We woke up to the sound of the prayers,” said Cole Moses, 23, a senior. “That was our alarm clock. It was kind of surreal.”
Waking up to Islamic calls to pray (for their destruction) would be surreal. We questioned the indoctrination in 2008 and again in 2012. Now it turns out, the mosque’s imam is literally preaching jihad.

He will be “retrained,” no doubt in making sure not to say things in public that could come to the unwelcome notice of the Infidels, and that will be that.
And a left-wing New Jersey senator with presidential aspirations threw his two cents in and the immediate response from the so-called religion of peace was no surprise: NJ Senator Cory Booker gets DEATH THREATS after he slams ‘repugnant’ call for killing of Jews by imam of Jersey City mosque
Newark police have deployed extra security to protect Sen. Cory Booker in response to death threats. NJ Senator Cory Booker had slammed the “repugnant” call for killing of Jews by the imam of Jersey City Mosque. In his letter to Ahmed Shedeed — the president of the Islamic Center of Jersey City — Booker excoriated Elkasaby’s remarks as “repugnant,” “dangerous,” and “unconscionable.” Death threats followed, a fatwa in my opinion.
Will West Point continue sending cadets to the jihad-preaching mosque?
