We often hear that radical Muslims such as ISIS are NOT the same as moderate Muslims such as Imams in America, and that most Muslims who go to Mosques here in the states don’t agree with those radical types who make up the other 90% of the Islamic faith. Yet, here is a clear-cut indication that the liberal mindset is absolutely false yet again.
The Islamic Center of Davis, California, seems to think that calling for the death of Jews by Imam Ammar Shahin is absolutely fine so long as it is translated in the exact way they want. Unfortunately for them, either way it is translated sounds exactly the same–like radical Muslims calling for the death of all Jews.
According to Hannity :
The Islamic Center of Davis, California defended an Imam who openly called for the “annihilation” of all the world’s Jews last week; bizarrely claiming the Muslim’s words were incorrectly translated and that he only hopes for the “destruction” of Jewish people.
Imam Ammar Shahin delivered his disgusting public sermon on Friday, calling for the total “annihilation” of Jews “down to the very last one” following increased tensions at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. “Oh Allah, liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews. Oh Allah, destroy those who closed the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Oh Allah, show us the black day that You inflict upon them, and the wonders of Your ability. Oh Allah, count them one by one and annihilate them down to the very last one. Do not spare any of them,” he told fellow worshipers.
The Islamic Center of Davis defended Shahin’s vile sermon on Tuesday, saying his words were twisted by a “false translation” conducted by the Middle East Research Institute that analyzed the speech. “MEMRI […] wrongly translates ‘ahlik’ as ‘annihilate’. Ahlik, in the Arabic language, means destroy, a supplication that is generally used against oppressors. MEMRI’s deliberate and erroneous translation to promote their agenda is unacceptable and aims to portray people of faith against each other,” said the statement.
Apparently, Shahin simply meant to say, “Allah, count them one by one and destroy them down to the very last one.”
It is kind of funny that the Islamic Center that is defending this Imam’s clear anti-Semitism has been quoted by stating they have “zero tolerance for anti-Semitism.” Hmm, sounds pretty anti-Semitic to me!
In the video, The Imam’s devotion and emotion can be clearly seen when he begs Allah to allow them (Muslims) to have a hand in the annihilation of the Jews. He practically cries out to be allowed to play a part in this act and to support those who commit the act by words AND DEEDS!
His own words and the emotional inflection he places on them leave no denying what he was saying regardless if the real translation was annihilated or destroy! They are both one and the same when used in the context and manner with which this insane Imam used them. This is the very irrefutable proof that so many on the right see day after day that the left wants us all to believe is fake and made up Islamophobia.
Imam Shahin has called for a Caliphate from one of our very own states against all Jews everywhere and it is nothing less than shocking. The day will come when they take to our streets and challenge the very value and fiber of what a Patriot is just as they have done in many other countries. It will be ugly if it is truly tried here in America. We do not bow to anyone. The Islamic Center in Cali should be denouncing this man instead of supporting him, but then again, why should they bother when they seem to have free reign in this country.
Rallies and protests should be formed to resist this blatant and abhorrent use of our country to further spread the horrid beliefs and violent traditions of these people. There must be more of a fight against this type of hate-speech and incite violence in America! Aim your rage in the right directions. It isn’t the right that is pushing for these kinds of disgusting actions.
