6 Ugly Signs of Resurgent Worldwide Antisemitism


5. Italy: Imam prays that Allah kill the Jews “one by one”

In a late July Friday sermon in Italy, the imam Abd Al-Barr Al-Rawdhi denounced the Jews, reminding his audience of several of the enormities ascribed to them in the Qur’an, and then prayer:

Oh Allah, bring upon them that which will make us happy. Oh Allah, count them one by one, and kill them to the very last one. Do not spare a single one of them. Turn their food to poison, make the air they breathe blazing hot, make their slumber full of grief, and make their days black. Oh Allah, plant fear in their hearts.

To the credit of Italian authorities, Al-Rawdhi was expelled from Italy after video of this sermon came to light.
