Danish Imam facing criminal charges for allegedly calling for Muslims to “slay the Jews” to bring on Judgement Day

Imam Mundhir Abdallah is facing charges over 2017 comments when he allegedly called on Muslims to “slay the Jews” to bring on Judgement Day.

“Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them” the Imam allegedly said in a video uploaded to Facebook and YouTube.

Imam Abdallah’s Masjid Al-Faruq mosque has previously been linked to Islamic extremism.

Public prosecutor Eva Ronne said “these are serious statements and I think it’s right for the court to now have an opportunity to assess the case,” she said. “It has always been illegal to accept killings of a certain group of people, but it’s new for us to target hate preachers”.

He could face up to three years in prison.

Danish Imam: “fight the Jews and kill them” to bring on “Judgement day”

Jewish communal leaders have filed a complaint after a Copenhagen Imam allegedly suggested that Muslims should “kill” Jews in a video.

Imam Mundhir Abdallah, who preaches in Norrebro, Copenhagen, allegedly claimed that “Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them”, quoting a Hadith. The statement was made in Arabic and was translated by MEMRI. He went on to quote the infamous statement about Jews hiding behind rocks and trees, and the rocks and trees calling out to Muslims that there is a Jew behind them so that they can be slaughtered.

He also spoke of “liberating” Al-Aqsa Mosque from the “filth of the Zionists” and spoke of a Caliphate waging war against the “Jewish”, not “Zionist”, “entity”.

Dan Rosenberg Asmussen, a communal head of the Jewish communities in Denmark, has called on police to open a criminal investigation for incitement, saying “we fear that weak and easily-influenced persons could interpret this kind of preaching as an appeal to visit acts of violence or terror on Jews”. However, reaching such a meaning seems not to require a strained interpretation at all. Instead, this comes across as the Imam calling the murder of Jews a religious duty, and indeed glorifying it.

Scandinavian online bookshop selling antisemitic propaganda for the fourth time

Adlibris, the leading online book retailer in Scandinavia, has been found to be selling antisemitic propaganda, including the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Adlibris had previously been called out on selling antisemitic books, and claimed to have taken action. This is at least the fourth time that the infamous antisemitic hoax text was available on its site.

The company’s information officer released the following statement:

“We have decided not to offer the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and we check every now and then if the book is on our list. However, we happen to work with distributors worldwide, and there are many self-publishers. This means we get up to 75,000 titles a month, and books registered with Amazon automatically get registered on our site too. We need to remove them afterwards and do it manually”

The book has since been removed from the site. However, several other antisemitic books are still available there, including Henry Ford’s “The International Jew”.

Whilst it is important that people are able to study these antisemitic texts in some capacity, it is potentially dangerous for them to be sold without a disclaimer of the factual inaccuracy and an explanation of the context of the text, especially as the authors present the texts as factual.

Danish schoolgirl and returned fighter from Syria charged over Jewish school bomb plot

A 16-year-old Danish girl has been charged with planning a terrorist attack on two schools, one of them Jewish. According to Danish police, the girl was befriended by a 24-year-old who local media have said had returned to Denmark after fighting in Syria. The girl was charged after acquiring chemicals for bombs, and her friend has also been charged over his complicity in preparing the bombs, including providing bomb-making instructions. Local channel TV2 said the girl had recently converted to Islam.

Both the girl and her friend have pleaded innocence.

In February last year, a terrorist gunman killed two people in shooting attacks at a debating event, before moving on and murdering Dan Udan, a security volunteer at a Copenhagen synagogue.
