Two Toronto Islamic organizations devoted to the Salafi ideology, the Qur’an and Sunnah Society of Canada (QSSC), have invited radical muslim clerics to keynote their upcoming conference. Shalom Toronto reports that these clerics hold anti-Semitic views. In a 2009 lecture, Sheikh Ali Al Halabi declared that ‘Allah brought about the Jews to rule over them (the Muslims), and they (the Jews) are the biggest scoundrels (of all nations), slayers of prophets… and they are brothers of the monkeys and pigs…they are the evil nation…a despicable, contemptible and disgraceful people…they (the Jews) adhere to a life of exploitation, a life of treachery, a life of villainy and deception’. Al Halabi went on to say that according to the Islamic faith ‘the Muslims will fight the Jews until the stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.
In his article, ‘the mosque of the prophets and the murderers of the prophets’, Sheikh Akram Ziyadah declared The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.
Ziyadah’s visa is confirmed, Halabi’s is pending.
