A public hearing into the case against Imam Abdallah I. took place in Berlin’s district courts in Tiergarten on 12 November 2015. Imam Abdallah I. was found guilty of hate speech and fined €1,000 for a sermon he held at the Al-Nur mosque in Neukölln, Berlin the previous year, in which he declared that “Allah wants to kill the Zionist Jews”.
The courts have confirmed that unrest broke out in the public viewing area during the hearing. A man, who was wearing a kippah while viewing the hearing, reports being called a “Jewish pig” by another member of the public.
