Quoting this hadith in the U.S. will swiftly get you charges of “Islamophobia” and “misunderstanding Islam,” although I know of no Muslim attempt to explain away the obvious genocidal import of Muhammad’s prophecy. Non-Muslims are just denounced if they notice. But in the Islamic world, this genocidal prophecy is taken very seriously: “Egyptian Child Preacher Muhammad Osama Recounts Antisemitic Hadith: Jews Hide Behind the Gharqad Tree When Muslims Come to Kill Them on Judgment Day,” from MEMRI, January 14 (thanks to Wimpy):
Following are excerpts from a sermon delivered by Egyptian child preacher Muhammad Osama, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 14, 2012.
Muhammad Osama: Through the worship [of Allah], we shall gain victory over our enemies, strengthen our religion, and defeat the Jews. The Messenger of Allah said: “Judgment Day will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims will kill the Jews, and the Jews will hide behind the trees and the stones, and then the trees and the stones will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the gharqad tree will not speak because it is one of the trees of the Jews.”
