Jewish groups have asked Homeland Security and the U.S. Attorney's office to investigate a California imam who gave a sermon calling on Allah to "annihilate" Jews "down to the very last one" -- and asked his congregants to take part in the slaughter -- the Fox News website reports today (July 27, 2017).
Imam Ammar Shahin gave the sermon at the Islamic Center of Davis, California on July 21. He also asked Allah to liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Israel from "the filth of the Jews," and cited an Islamic text that calls for a Judgment Day fight between Muslims and Jews.
"Oh, Allah, count them one by one and annihilate them down to the very last one. Do not spare any of them," said Shahin in both Arabic and English in his sermon.
"The sermon is very anti-Semitic and violent," Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) Executive Director Steven Stalinsky said. "It's not surprising that the imam/mosque are denying this and saying that it is incorrect or out of context."
