"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--because I was not a Socialist.
"Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--because I was not a Trade Unionist.
"Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--because I was not a Jew.
"Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me."--Martin NiemӧllerImam Ammar Shahin of the Islamic Center of Davis (ICD) in California has made himself famous for his anti-Semitic rant--a call straight out of the Qu'ran for the murder of Jews.
The Clarion Project has posted a petition to fire him.
This come after the ICD in a flaming bald-faced lie claimed their anti-Semitic imam wasn't anti-Semitic when he called on Muslims to fight the Jews and Allah to annihilate them.
Somehow we infidels have taken that out of context.
Shahin's words: "Allah does not change the situation of a people until they change their own situation. The Prophet Muhammed said, 'Judgment day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews.'"
Perhaps that's taken out of context. Perhaps Shahin meant that Muhammed wants Muslims to delight the Jews with parlor games and halvah.
He should have been more clear. After all, it's easy to think that someone who then tries to clarify his statement with: "The last hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews," said in plain English, might be taken to be anti-Semitic.
Shahin then prayed:
"Oh Allah, support the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the rest of the Muslim lands. Oh Allah, liberate the Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews. Oh Allah, destroy those who closed the Al_Aqsa Mosque. Oh Allah, show us the black day that You inflict upon them, and the wonders of Your ability. Oh Allah, count them one by one and annihilate them down to the very last one. Do not spare any of them."That's very easy to take out of context and surmise it to be an anti-Semitic diatribe. Of course Shahin only meant it as an 'Allah Joke'. The whole darn thing was taken out of context, according to ICD.
Shahin was very explicit for a "war of faith" against Jews. There was never any mention in his sermon that clarified that he was talking about only some Jews or Zionists, as Breitbart shamefully reported.
Please consider signing the petition . . . before they come for you and there's no one left to speak for you.
Islamic extremists don't merely hate Jews--they hate all of us who believe differently than they do.
Personally, I would like to see others beside Shahin getting fired--I like to have ICD closely monitored and, if necessary, closed down or have all the staff replaced with Muslims who don't hate everyone else.
