Canada: Muslim cleric prays for Allah to bring annihilation upon the ‘criminal and plundering Jews’

The Jews in the Qur’an are called the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“British Columbia imam continues to deliver antisemitic sermons,” Israel National News, June 17, 2022:

A Victoria, British Columbia imam has continued to deliver extreme antisemitic sermons to followers in the city, even after videos of his hateful rhetoric were published by a watchdog organization, according to B’nai Brith Canada.

Younus Kathrada, the head of an organization called Muslim Youth of Victoria, was recently exposed yet again by MEMRI TV “pray[ing] for Allah to bring annihilation upon the criminal and plundering Jews.”

In a previous May 2021 video posted by MEMRI, Kathrada said that Muslims’ “enmity towards the Jews is just and sensible” and said, “Oh Allah, give strength to Islam and Muslims to humiliate the infidels and the polytheists.”…

B’nai Brith Canada CEO Michael Mostyn said: “It is important that this extremist hate-monger is being vigorously investigated after this latest hate incident. It’s appalling that such noxious hate speech against Jews is allowed to continue in Canada, and we hope Kathrada will now face criminal charges.”…

The advocacy group listed other hateful incidents involving Kathrada, including an October of 2019 speech in which he advised congregants not to vote in the Canadian federal election, arguing that all Jewish and Christian candidates were “filthy” and “evil.” In January of that year, Kathrada suggested that wishing Christians a Merry Christmas was a sin worse than murder.

This was followed by an April 2020 sermon, where he called for the annihilation of atheists and victory for jihad.

In November 2020, Kathrada was reported to the police by B’nai Brith for statements comparing Jews to monkey and pigs and calling for their destruction. In August 2021, he described Christians and Jews as ‘our enemies’ who were trying to “spend mountains of gold to drive us away from Islam.”…
