Kikar Hashabat reports that Al Aqsa preacher Sheikh Omar Abu Sara was convicted of incitement and racism based on a 2014 sermon he gave at the Al Aqsa Mosque.
Here is the text of that sermon published by MEMRI:
Let me start by saying that talking about the traits of the Jews requires one to get into a special mode, because we are dealing with people to whom every single vile trait has been attributed. They were the masters of these vile traits, and they taught their secrets to others. These traits were registered in the Quran, which depicted all aspects of the lives of the Jews in the most abominable images.The judge noted that the Palestinian knifing spree is connected to this sort of rhetoric.
These traits are the same today as they were in the days of yore. Nay, they have become even more vile and evil with the development of means of crime and corruption in this day and age. By Allah, the Jews are the most evil of Allah's creations. They are the most evil creatures to have walked this Earth.
They are the slayers of prophets. Ibn Al-Qayyim said that they had killed seventy prophets in one day, and that they had killed a total of over 10,000 prophets. They tried to kill our Prophet Muhammad twice, as far as we know.
It was the Jews whom Allah turned into apes and pigs, and afflicted with degradation and humiliation.
We are living in a time when the battle with the Jews has drawn near, as our Prophet Muhammad was reported to have said: "You fight the Jews until the trees and the stones will say: Oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me. Come and kill him."
I say to the Jews loud and clear: The time for your slaughter has come. The time to fight you has come. The time to kill you has come. Allah willing, we are ready for the task – we and the loyal and faithful Muslims, along with the armies of the state of the Islamic Caliphate, which will come to liberate this land from your filth.
We await the day – nay, the very moment – of your slaughter. We are ready. By Allah, we are. Do your worst. The balance of power is tipped in your favor. Go ahead and kill! Go ahead and slaughter! Stones, trees, and humans suffer at your hand. Please do not leave in our hearts a single grain of mercy towards you, oh Jews, because when the day of your slaughter arrives, we shall slaughter you without mercy.
Oh Allah, make that day come faster.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, hasten the day of the [slaughter[ of the Jews.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, hasten the day of their killing.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, hasten the day we fight them.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, hasten the day of their slaughter.
Omar Abu Sara: Allah, hasten the day when the Al-Aqsa Mosque is cleansed of their filth.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, hasten the establishment of the state of the Islamic Caliphate.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, make it a righteous caliphate in the path of the prophets.
Omar Abu Sara: Oh Allah, hasten the pledge of allegiance to the Muslim Caliph.
Two weeks ago another Al Aqsa preacher, Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi, was convicted and sentenced to an eleven month prison term for similar incitement. He had claimed that Jews make matzah with gentile blood but his indictment came from calls to destroy Jews in accordance with the Koran.
The pro-Israel NGO Honenu has been instrumental in bringing these videos to Israeli police to force the arrest of the hate sheikhs.
It is nice to see that something is being done - finally - about open incitement to terror.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
