I can’t think of anyone more qualified to speak on Islamic antisemitism than Andy. In fact, there is no one more qualified than him…
US Muslim children are taught Islamic Jew-hatred
Dr. Andrew G. Bostom, ג’ באייר תשע”ט, 5/8/2019
Chilling videos surfaced this past week (here; here) from an April 17, 2019 event sponsored by the mainstream, traditionalist Muslim American Society (MAS)—“one of the nation’s major Islamic groups”—at their Islamic Center in Philadelphia. Dubbed “Ummah [Global Muslim Community] Day,” the celebrations featured Muslim children intoning “you need force and the Koran,” then paying tribute to jihad murder martyrdom—sacrificing their “bodies and souls…without hesitation”—to kill “Zionists”, i.e., Jews. These “liberating” murderous actions—beheadings [Koran 8:12; 47:4]—would further cause their Jewish victims eternal Koranic [4:54–55, and 98:5–6; glossed, 4:54–55 and 98:5–6] damnation:
We will chop off their heads, and we will liberate the sorrowful and exalted Al-Aqsa Mosque. We will lead the army of Allah fulfilling His promise, and we will subject them to eternal torture.
Only on May 3rd, after exposure of these videos in the national press did the MAS provide a statement, transparent in its mendacity. The songs and declarations recorded for posterity and placed triumphantly on the MAS Philadelphia affiliate’s Facebook page, in all their ugliness, were “not properly vetted.”
A spokesperson for the national MAS insisted on Sunday May 5th the video “does not represent our understanding of Islam, nor the understanding of the mainstream Muslim community,” and in response to media backlash, its Philadelphia affiliate’s Facebook page was shut down.
However, on May 6, 2019 the Middle East Media Research Institute revealed another videofrom the MAS Philadelphia affiliate’s Facebook page, uploaded two years earlier, May 28, 2017, with children also calling for jihad murder “martyrdom.”
Later that same day, May 6, 2019 Fox News chose to air an uncontested Islamic takiya(Islamic dissimulation) about the video presentation pronounced by so-called “reformist” Muslim Qanta Ahmed. Ms. Ahmed had the temerity to claim—again, without anyone to challenge her dishonest assertions that:
“It is absolutely anathema to Islam…This is completely not what Islam teaches. Islam sees Christians and Jews as legitimate believers who are party to paradise, who have a true message from God, and they are our brethren. We cannot be Muslim unless we believe in the Bible and the Torah.”
The unchanged toxic reality of how U.S. Muslim children are educated, vis-à-vis Jews, can be gleaned by re-examining a March 30, 2003 New York Daily News exposé (free full-text here), entitled, appositely, “Sowing the seeds of hatred.”
The 3-month long NY Daily News 2003 investigation of textbooks widely used in New York city area Islamic schools demonstrated that antisemitic archetypes—based on central motifs in the Koran, and the traditions of the nascent Muslim community under Muhammad (i.e., the “hadith”, and earliest pious Muslim biographies of Islam’s prophet, or “sira”)—were rampant in the texts being used to instruct American Muslim students. Amongst the examples provided were these:
In Long Island City, Queens, fifth- and sixth-graders at the Ideal Islamic School on 12th St. learn that Allah has revealed [pace Koran 2:61/3:112] that “the Jews killed their own prophets and disobeyed Allah.” …Yet a third book, in use at the Ideal school, describes the hostile relations between Jews and the [Muslim prophet] Muhammad in Medina in the 7th century. “The reasons for Jewish hostility lies in their general characteristics,” the book says. Numerous Koranic citations follow with negative references to Jews – for example, “You will ever find them deceitful, except for a few of them.” [3:71; 4:46]
