Imagine the outcry if a non-Muslim cleric had said such a thing about Muslims. But no one will take any notice of this.
Antisemitism is deeply rooted within Islam — here is an explanation of why this cleric thinks that the Jews are Islam’s worst enemies.
“Pakistani Religious Leaders Promote Antisemitism, Say: ‘When The Jews Are Wiped Out… The Sun Of Peace Would Begin To Rise On The Entire World’; ‘Israel Has Inducted More Armed Personnel In Kashmir… Under The Guise Of Tourists,'” from MEMRI, August 1 (thanks to Lachlan):
In Pakistan, where Islamic clerics routinely promote Antisemitism, leading Pakistani politician and prominent religious leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman recently accused Israel of deploying Israeli soldiers in support of Indian security forces in Kashmir.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman is the head of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) party. His remark on Kashmir came in an official statement marking the Kashmir Martyrs’ Day — July 13, 2012. Rehman is the head of Pakistan’s Parliamentary Committee on Kashmir Affairs.
In another Antisemitic video that appeared on YouTube in June 2012, Pakistani cleric Pirzada Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai argued that world peace will be established only when all the Jews are wiped out from the earth.
In the video entitled “Yahodi Islam Kay Aur Aman Kay Asal Dushman Hain” (Jews Are the Real Enemy of Islam and Peace), Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai states: “And all the troubles that exist around the world are because of the Jews. When the Jews are wiped out, then the world would be purified and the sun of peace would begin to rise on the entire world.” His speech is part of the Fikr-e-Iman (Concern for Faith) series of lectures.
Mustafai is a leading cleric belonging to the Barelvi School of Sunni Islam and is also the founder of Idarat-ul-Mustafa Pakistan, which is described as a spiritual movement for the enforcement of Islamic shari’a in the country. He is a cleric at the Markazi Jamia Masjid Gulzar-e-Madinah, Gujranwala, Pakistan….
