Qur’an 2:65 — Allah transforms disobedient Jews into apes: “And well you know there were those among you [Jews] that transgressed the Sabbath, and We said to them, ‘Be you apes, miserably slinking!'”
Qur’an 5:59-60 — Jews cursed, made into apes and swine: “Say: ‘People of the Book, do you blame us for any other cause than that we believe in Allah, and what has been sent down to us, and what was sent down before, and that most of you are ungodly?’ Say: ‘Shall I tell you of a recompense with Allah, worse than that? Whomsoever Allah has cursed, and with whom He is wroth, and made some of them apes and swine, and worshippers of idols — they are worse situated, and have gone further astray from the right way.'”
Qur’an 7:166 — Jews are apes: “And when they [Jews] turned in disdain from that forbidding We said to them, ‘Be you apes, miserably slinking!'”
“Politician quits after ‘Jewish pigs’ slur online,” The Local, August 5, 2014 (thanks to Lookmann):
A Swedish politician is facing sharp criticism after he wrote on Facebook that “Jewish pigs” are responsible for mass murders in Gaza.
Omar Omeirat, Social Democrat candidate for the town council of Filipstad, central Sweden, gave a speech in the town on Friday evening advocating diversity and openness.
On Saturday he sang a very different tune.
“The entire Muslim world is sitting and watching while our brothers and sisters in Palestine are slaughtered by the Jewish pigs,” Omeritat wrote on his Facebook page.
“May Allah strengthen those who defend Palestine, and be merciful towards the dead Muslims. Amen.”
His Facebook page also included a flag used by the Islamist group Isis, local paper NWT reported.
The post quickly became public knowledge, and the young politician came under fire for his choice of words.
“I called Omar about what he had written, and he said that he had watched a film where Palestinian women and children were murdered by Jews,” Åsa Hååkman Feldt, Social Democrat spokeswoman in Filipstad, told The Local.
Omeirat quickly regretted the post, and updated his Facebook status to an apology.
“He never meant to judge people who are Jews, Christians, or anything else,” Feldt explained. “He just meant to judge Israel as a state.”
On Tuesday it was announced he would be stepping down from his position.
“I regret what I said,” Omeirat told Sveriges Television. “It was the wrong choice of words and no one should say something like that.”
Feldt confirmed that Omeirat had decided to leave politics, and said it was entirely his own choice.
“Of course we condemn his statement,” Feldt told The Local. “But it is Omar himself who has decided that he should take the consequences for his actions and leave the party.”
Feldt called the situation “unusual”, saying that the most common reason to step down is sickness. She explained that the town’s voting slips are already printed and that Omeirat’s name will still be on the list, but that he will not be eligible for a position in autumn elections.
“You really have to think about what you write on Facebook, especially as a politician,” Feldt added. “It’s a public record and there are consequences.”
Last month Social Democrat party leader Stefan Löfven was criticized for expressing his thoughts about Gaza, when he wrote on Facebook that “Israel has the right to defend itself”.
Israel has a right to defend itself? Horror of horrors! If saying that can get you “criticized” in Sweden, then Sweden as a free state is not long for this world.
