FRANCE - Imam Foresees Israel’s Demise

Arno Froese

The France chapter of the B’nai B’rith group condemned on Twitter the statements that Mohamed Tatai, the imam of the newly inaugurated Grand Mosque of Toulouse and the leader of an interfaith dialogue group, delivered on Dec. 15.

Tatai recited a Muslim text, called a Hadith, stating that on Judgment Day, the Muslims will kill the Jews.

The Prophet Mohammed “told us about the final and decisive battle: ‘Judgement Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Jews will hide behind the stones and the trees, and the stones and the trees will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him—except for the Gharqad tree, which is one of the trees of the Jews,'” he said.

The video of the Arabic-language sermon was posted in December on the YouTube channel of the Grand Mosque of Toulouse. The Middle East Media Research Institute translated the video and posted it on its website. B’nai B’rith France President Philippe Meyer posted the URL to the MEMRI translation, adding: “Outraged by the anti-Semitic rhetoric and prophecies on Israel’s demise.”

During the inauguration ceremony, which included the release of white doves, Tatai said the mosque will serve “to instill the values of peace” and as a “bulwark against extremism.” In light of the sermon, Meyer said the imam’s talk of tolerance was “unacceptable doublespeak.”

In 2012, a jihadist killed four Jews—a rabbi and three children—at a Jewish school in Toulouse., 27 June 2018

Arno's commentary

There is no group of people who have been so severely persecuted as the Jews. The epitome of diabolical evil was committed during Hitler’s reign in Europe, when over six million Jews were systematically murdered just for being Jews.

With the founding of the state of Israel, Jews no longer tolerate any opposition intending to destroy them. They have become the best soldiers in the world and, we must add, also the smartest and most dedicated. Mohamed Tatai should note that the demise will not happen to Israel, but to Islamism, and that will take place on “Judgment Day.” Not only Muslims, however, but also the rest of the world will be judged, condemned, and destroyed. “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh” (Revelation 19:20-21).
