California Imam Apologizes for Antisemitic Sermon

by JOEL B. POLLAK30 Jul 2017
Imam Ammar Shahin of the Islamic Center of Davis apologized on Friday for a July 21 sermon in which he had quoted an antisemitic text and prayed for Allah to “annihilate” Jews “down to the very last one.”


The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) also translated another sermon from Shahin from July 14, in which he made similarly incendiary remarks:
By Allah, the Prophet Muhammad told us, in many narrations – and there is no time to list all of them now – that prayer is the strongest weapon that Muslims have. By Allah, brothers, it is stronger than the weapons of the Jews, the deceit of the Jews, and their wickedness. … The Al-Aqsa Mosque is besieged, and there are no prayers in it. Those wicked Jews are prohibiting prayer there … Oh Allah, count them one by one and destroy them down to the very last one.
