Oh, and they had no knowledge of his many videos, and we’re also to believe that he didn’t make any anti-Semitic remarks during his speech in Sweden. What a bunch of liars. KGS
Reinhard notes: “The organization responsible is Islamiska förbundet, which was previously headed by Waberi, the Muslim Brotherhood operative who is now an MP for the “conservatives”. But it is nice to see this episode highlighted in DN, the most left-leaning of the two major Swedish newspapers. It seems Islamists are fair targets (and the use of MEMRI in the article is a nice touch).”
Islamic group invited anti-Semitic speaker
Published: 25 Mar 11 07:38 CET |
The Islamic Association in Sweden (Islamiska Förbundet) engaged lecturers with anti-Semitic opinions at a conference in Stockholm in December, with one known for spreading myths about Jewish conspiracies and ritual killings, reported the Dagens Nyheter (DN) daily.
The Local: The newspaper names, among others, Salah Sultan, an Egyptian professor who has expressed anti-Semitism in several film clips on Youtube.
In one particular film, he quoted a myth which circulated in the Middle Ages of Jewish ritual murder, DN reported.
Sultan has also gone on the record with claims that Jews are part of an international conspiracy trying to control the world.
After being shown the YouTube clips of the Egyptian speaking, Abdirizak Waberi, a member of parliament and former chairperson of the Islamic Association, expressed surprise.
“We have invited him in good faith,” he said.
Waberi stressed that had the association known of the film clips, the lecturer would probably not have been invited. He furthermore underlined that Sultan said nothing that could be construed as anti-Semitic during the course of the conference.
NOTE: Oh and by the way, the OIC would reject the notion of the sheik being an anti-Semite, since it rejects the phenomenon of Islamic anti-Semitism altogether.
