BRUSSELS—An imam who became president of the conference of imams in Belgium incited ‘’to kille all Zionists and burn them in blood of martyrs’’ in a sermon.
The Belgian League Against Anti-Semitism has received a video of the sermon he made in 2009.
Imam Mohamed Toujgani, who was the imam of the al-Khalil mosque, located in the heart of Molenbeek, before becoming the president of the conference of Imams of Belgium, declared in his sermon : “Lord, Master of the Worlds, pours fear into the hearts of oppressive Zionists. Lord, fill their hearts with fear. Lord, shake the earth under their feet. Lord, let the blood of the martyrs be a weapon under the feet of the oppressing Zionists, and that blood be a fiery fire that burns them and a wind that castigates them. […] O Lord, destroy them. ”
Joel Rubinfeld, president of the Belgian League against Anti-Semitism, discovered the video, whhich, he said, had escaped at the time but “takes all its meaning today” as French islamist terrorist Mehdi Nemmouche stands trial in Brussels court for the murder of four people at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in 2014.
“Like the attacks of Hyper Cacher and against Charlie Hebdo in Paris, the attack of the Jewish Museum didn’t fall from the sky. It is the result of the teaching of factories of jihadists, factories of terrorists, who, by word, have encouraged young people to act. The passage to the act is preceded by the liberation of speech. The attack is the result. The origin is that kind of speech. This kind of preaching wields the arms of the assassins. ”
Imam Toujgani used the word “Zionist”, which for the League “is a way of designating Jews without falling under the law”.
