Canadian Imams Call for Death of Jews

Some weak excuses are being offered after two Canadian imams attracted media attention for giving incendiary, anti-Semitic sermons.

Ryerson University in Toronto announced it fired Ayman Elkasrawy from his teaching assistant position in the wake of reports he prayed for Allah to “purify” Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa Mosque “from the filth of the Jews.”

He also prayed that anyone who “displaced” Muslims be destroyed: “Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them, O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews!”

The Muslim Association of Canada suspended Elkasrawy, describing him as a “junior employee” whose sermon was “unauthorized.” Toronto police are investigating Elkasrawy’s remarks to determine whether his remarks constitute hate speech.

Elkasrawy apologized in a Feb. 20 Twitter post, saying he misspoke. “I firmly believe that all human beings, Muslim, Jews and people of all and no faith, deserve to live a life free of any threat to their safety.”

In Montreal, calls for an investigation into similar comments by a Sheikh Wael Al-Ghitawi are growing after the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) posted videos showing him denying Jewish roots in Israel.

“Jews do not have any historical right to Palestine,” Al-Ghitawi said in the 2014 sermon. He falsely asserted that “for long periods of time, there was not a single Jew in Jerusalem and Palestine.”
