Imagine how the imams laugh after assuring reporters that they never saw the Muslim who just committed the latest jihad attack, and when Jewish and Christian leaders invite them to address their congregations to clear up “misconceptions” about Islam.
A Danish Imam convicted for inciting hate after he preached for the extermination of Jews in Berlin during Israel’s Operation Protective Edge in 2014 appeared on Friday in the capital city at a radical mosque, catapulting the city’s mayor Michael Müller’s administration into a new round of criticism for failing to rope in Islamists who advocate lethal antisemitism.
Sheikh Abu Bilal Ismail said in a fiery 2014 sermon at Berlin’s Al-Nur mosque: “Oh, Allah, destroy the Zionist Jews, they are no challenge for you.” He added,’Count them and kill them to the very last one. Don’t spare a single one of them. Make them suffer terribly.”…
Ismail was filmed in 2016 at the Danish Grimhøj mosque in Aarhus stating, “If a married or divorced women engages in fornication, and she is not a virgin, she should be stoned to death.”
The radical Islamist continued, “If someone violates their marriage, either man or woman, they commit adultery and their blood is thus halal and they should be killed by stoning. If the woman is a virgin, the punishment is whipping.”
The Grimhøj mosque announced its support for the Islamic State in 2014.
When asked by a B.Z. reporter on Friday what he (Ismail) meant with stoning and killing Jews, a companion of Ismail said the statements “were taken out of context. if the media were honest ,he would say something.” Isamil then laughed, according to the B.Z.
The B.Z.’s Til Biermann reported that nearly 100 people appeared on Friday expecting to listen to Ismail’s sermon. Women are not allowed into the prayer room where the men prayed.
The Christian Democratic Union city councilman Falko Liecke told the B.Z. that the Müller’s amdinistration must ban the mosque. “This hate and violence contradicts everything that we stand for.”
He said it is not the first time that extremists positions were spread at the African mosque. “It is one of the radical hot spots in Berlin.”…
In 2015, a Berlin criminal court fined Ismail €1,300 for inciting hatred against Jews at the al-Nur mosque, The court found that Ismail, 49 and a father of nine, had delivered a “hostile and hate-filled view toward Jews as a population group in Germany.”…
According to Berlin’s most recent intelligence agency report from 2015, there are 250 active Hezbollah members in the city. The report documented 70 Hamas members in Berlin.
Germany and the EU classify Hamas as a terrorist organization.
It is unclear why Müller’s administration has not clamped down on Hamas operatives . The EU and the Federal Republic designated Hezbollah’s so-called military wing as a terrorist entity.
