Many Muslims around the world appear to be incredibly angry over Israel’s decision to implement extra security precautions at the entrance of the al-Aqsa mosque in the wake of an Islamic terrorist attack targeting Israeli-Druze police officers. How angry? Genocidal-level angry.
On Friday, an imam in California (yes, that left-wing tolerant west coast state in America, not some remote region of Pakistan) called for the utter annihilation of every last Jew.
“Liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews,” prayed Imam Ammar Shahin of the Islamic Center of Davis in northern California. “Annihilate them down to the very last one.”
He continued, raising his voice as he spoke to a receptive audience of devout California Muslims: “Oh Allah, make this happen by our hands. Let us play a part in this.”
A video of the genocidal sermon was posted on the Davis Masjid YouTube channel and subsequently translated by watchdog organization MEMRI.

California Sermon: Imam Cites Hadith, Prays for Annihilation of Jews, Calls to Liberate Al-Aqsa Mosque from 'Filth' https://t.co/g7xsCtwcAw— Mordechai Sones (@MordechaiSones) July 24, 2017
According to Arutz Sheva news, Imam Shahin isn’t some illiterate hate preacher but rather a well-educated, Westernized devout Muslim who genuinely believes in the cause of Jewish genocide.
“Imam Shahin, who had earned a B.A. in Islamic studies in Egypt, traveled in 1999 to the U.S., where he obtained a degree in computer engineering,” explains Arutz Sheva. “He is listed as an instructor of the Zidni Islamic Institute, a California-based organization that teaches Sunni Islam in the West.”
Despite his background, the imam called for the kind of medieval savagery not seen since the days of the Islamic conquests of the Middle East. In fact, he cited both Islamic history and holy texts to justify his genocidal rhetoric.
Read the imam’s Islamic holy text-inspired sermon below:
Allah does not change the situation of people ‘until they change their own situation.’ The Prophet Muhammad said: ‘Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Jews hide behind stones and trees, and the stones and the trees say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah …’ They will not say: Oh Egyptian, oh Palestinian, oh Jordanian, oh Syrian, oh Afghan, oh Pakistani. The Prophet Muhammad says that the time will come, the Last Hour will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews. …
We don’t say if it is in Palestine or another place. Until they fight … When that war breaks out, they will run and hide behind every rock, and house, and wall, and trees. The house, the wall, and the tress will call upon the Muslims. It will say: Oh Muslim … It will not say: Oh Palestinian, oh Egyptian, oh Syrian, oh Afghan, oh Pakistani, oh Indian … No, it will say: Oh Muslim. Muslim. When Muslims come back … ‘Come, there is someone behind me — except for the Gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews. Except for a certain tree that they are growing today in Palestine, in that area, except this form of tree, which they are growing today … That’s the tree that will not speak to the Muslims …
Oh Allah, support the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of the Muslim lands. Oh Allah, liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews. Oh Allah, destroy those who closed the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Oh Allah, show us the black day that You inflict upon them, and the wonders of Your ability. Oh Allah, count them one by one and annihilate them down to the very last one. Do not spare any of them. …
Oh Allah, liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Oh Allah, make this happen by our hands. Let us play a part in this. Oh Allah, let us support them in words and in deeds. Oh Allah, let us support them in words and in deeds. Oh Allah, let us support them in words and in deeds.
