An Earlier Call for Killing of Jews and Christians

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

As we protest against the vicious and genocidal words of Imam Ammar Shahin at the Islamic Center of Davis, in which he invoked the hadith regarding the Day of Judgment when "Jews will hide behind trees and the trees will call out, 'Oh Muslim. There is a Jew hiding behind me. Come and kill him," we would do well to remember that Shahin did not invent these words. They are being heard in mosques around the world every day.

In 2102, Imam Abdullah Hakim Quick invoked similar language when he called on Allah to cleanse Al Aksa (mosque in Jerusalem) from the"filth of the Yahud" (Jews). He then called for Allah to cleanse Afghanistan and Iraq from the "filth" of the unbelievers.

This is not just some obscure preacher. He is a senior member of the Canadian Council of Imams. This language runs throughout Islamic texts. This is the language of mainstream-not radical- Islam.
