The koran directly calls both Christians and Jews the descendants of Apes and pigs…
Sweden: Imam Who Labelled Jews ‘Monkeys and Pigs’ Sentenced
A 39-year-old Imam in the Swedish city of Helsingborg has been sentenced to fines and a conditional prison sentence after labelling Jews “the progeny of monkey’s and pigs.”
The Imam made the remarks during a demonstration organised by the Swedish-Palestinian centre in July of 2017 after he was called on by organisers to speak, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.
The man admitted that his speech, which was given in Arabic rather than Swedish, contained the hateful phrases but defended himself by claiming that they were not directed at all Jews but rather at the Jewish state of Israel instead.
“We think that the speech in its entirety states that the statement was about Jews with a view to their religion, not the regime or the military power,” the court said in a press release.
NOTE: Here’s a comment from someone that deserves to be included in this post:
Muslim apologists will say, ‘no, not at all’.
Others will write, ‘yes, but only some Jews were called this’.
Others will write ‘it’s because the interpretation was not clear, but in fact the Muslims respect the Jews, whom are called in question he Qur’ran, The People of the Book’.
Please friends, read the Qur’an; don’t listen to Islamic apologists or Bovine Scatology (BS) on the subject.
Go and read the Qur’ran for yourself, simple as that. Then listen to imams, Muslim religious preachers, who quote the Qur’an incessantly when delivering sermons,
And although the Qur’an says that Christians received the same punishment – not factually true, throughout history the term “apes and swine” has largely been reserved for Jews, in both Shi’ite and Sunni traditions, from the founding of Islam nearly fourteen hundred years ago to today ( “Muslim Clerics – Jews Are the Descendants of Apes, Pigs, And Other Animals,” Jewish Virtual Library, November 2002.)
The Saudi sheikh Abdul Rahman al-Sudais, imam at the Grand Mosque in Mecca (Masjid al-Haram) called Jews pigs and monkeys. He also preached “that Jews, based on our Holy Qur’ran, are the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets, and the offspring of apes and pigs (Charles Moore, “Where is the Gandhi of Islam?” The Telegraph, 9 July 2005.)
Al-Sudais is just one among many Muslim preachers promoting the same message. Many other leading Muslim clerics in the Middle East have also been preaching that Jews are swine and monkeys.
The Salafist Jordanian Sheikh Ali Halabi had issued a fatwa against the killing of Jews in February 2015. He changed his opinions after facing intense backlash. In a video released in November 2015 he announced that it is acceptable to kill someone who attacks you, “all the more so when the aggressor is an evil Jew, from among the brothers of apes and pigs.”
Taking the Qu’ranic text literally means considering Jews as animals. that’s clear. The Nazis held similar views, asserting that Jews were subhuman.
Even the highest religious Muslim authority in pre-war Palestine, the Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al Husseini (and close confidante of Hitler’s, listed the points of similarity and overlap between Islam and Nazism in detail. He did so in a lecture to the imams of the Bosnian SS unit, which he had helped to set up (Matthias Küntzel, Djihad und Judenhass (Freiburg: ça ira-Verlag, 2003), 39.).
And a quote directly from the Quran in Sura (chapter) Al Ma’idaj states very clearly;
Say, “Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that as penalty from Allah ? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs (swine) and slaves of Taghut. Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way.”
And look into the Qur’an and read sura (chapter) 5, verse 60 (Qur’an).
