Last week, the BBC reported on a video that MEMRI publicized:

A video of an imam appearing to call for the murder of Jews in a sermon during Friday prayers at a Copenhagen mosque has caused outrage in Denmark.

Mundhir Abdallah was reported to police after being filmed citing in Arabic a hadith - a teaching of the Prophet Muhammad - considered anti-Semitic.

The hadith says the Day of Judgement "will not come unless the Muslims fight the Jews and the Muslims kill them".

A Jewish community leader said his words were a "thinly-veiled" threat.

Videos of the sermon were posted on YouTube and Facebook by the Al-Faruq Mosque on Sunday, although Mr Abdallah reportedly gave it on 31 March.

In the video, Mr Abdallah is seen standing in front of a black flag with the Shahadah written on it, similar to those used by jihadist groups such as al-Qaeda.

He declares there will soon be a "caliphate" - a state governed in accordance with Islamic law, or Sharia - that will wage jihad to unite the Muslim community and liberate the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem "from the filth of the Zionists".

Then, he says, "the words of the Prophet Muhammad will be fulfilled" and cites the hadith.
A Danish TV station covered the story. During the first half of the segment, the reporter speaks to Muslims in the neighborhood outside the mosque, and cannot find a single Muslim to condemn the imam's words. They had to dig up a Muslim who spoke out against it on Facebook to find the obligatory "of course not all Muslims believe this" part of the story.

In the second half of the video, a professor of Koran and Islam is interviewed where he admits that the words are problematic, but he says (at the prompting of the interviewer) that calling for the murder of Jews can be taken with a grain of salt - he doesn't mean it literally, he is trying to apply ancient Muslim hadiths to a current situation (implying that murdering Jews was OK in the eighth century).

He admits that these words "fertilize the ground" for hate but they are not really direct calls to murder. Take the statements seriously, but not too seriously - they are usually just the imam "mouthing off."

Why should Danish Jews feel threatened when this is just the everyday, background radiation of Islamic hate in their midst?

No reason. Except for this:
According to broadcaster DR, Omar al-Hussein, who was behind a series of shootings in Copenhagen in February 2015 which left two people dead, had visited the mosque the day before going on the rampage.

The Dane of Palestinian origin had sworn allegiance to Islamic State and shot and killed one person at a cultural centre hosting a conference on freedom of expression, before killing a Jewish man outside a synagogue. Police later shot him dead after he fired on them in a third incident.
The entire point of fertilizing the ground is to get your plants to grow.
