Watch it all – but from 2:40, it is particularly droll.
You’ll note that he denies racist statements about Jews.
But, of course, that’s a lie.
Here is a translation:
“[W]e must reflect on the reality of the conflict between us and the Jews, the enemies of God, and the descendants of apes and pigs.
O brothers! The conflict between us and the Jews is religious, historic, civilizational, and infinitely complex; it is not bounded by time or place, and it has more than one dimension.
Yes, o brothers, this is the nature of the conflict. It is not a military conflict for a limited period on the land of Palestine. The battle in Palestine, such as that underway at the moment and that which took place in the past, is but one small part of this conflict.
There is no better example of this, o brothers, than our recognition based on an investigation of reality, that although the Jews do not occupy all our land in Palestine, in time they will take over parts of the Arab countries indirectly in a manner perhaps worse than the military occupation. For example: political and economic control, and all their efforts to gain cultural control, as well as their hard work towards normalisation [of relations]. This is only part of their management of this battle, of which realise its importance and our ignorance.
We know that the Jews are using all that they can to end this conflict in their favour. They are doomed and will lose. They are one of the armies of the devil, of which Allah the Almighty said: And incite [to senselessness] whoever you can among them with your voice and assault them with your horses and foot soldiers and become a partner in their wealth and their children and promise them. But Satan does not promise them except delusion. [17:64]
Did Allah not commands us to seek refuge from the devils of mankind and the jinn? Indeed, the devils of mankind are perfectly represented by these Jews. Do their Protocols [of the Elders of Zion] not say: “We must seduce the world with women and wine, through gambling and recreation? And even if this [quote] is not genuinely from them [the Jews], their reality testifies to it.”
O brothers: their weapons in this battle are like the weapons of Satan: all kinds of desires, money, women, alcohol, games, media, so-called sports and art. All of these are amongst their weapons.”
I have checked this translation with religious experts who have confirmed its accuracy.
al Haddad then goes on to justify in great detail, the stoning of adulterers and discrimination against women.
Here are some more lies (from 1:30). Note too his refusal to be interviewed personally by a woman in a media studio.
You see, what women really need is genital mutilation:
Justice Minister Ivo Opstelten has written to parliament that there are no grounds to bar controversial Islam scholar Haitham al-Haddad from entering the Netherlands.
The minister’s letter came in reaction to questions from the Christian Union, Freedom Party, the conservative VVD and the Christian democratic CDA.
Mr Opstelten wrote that the sheikh’s statements on Jews and women were reprehensible, but in themselves insufficient grounds to bar him from entering the Netherlands.
Amsterdam venue De Balie has invited the Islam scholar after VU University Amsterdam cancelled his invitation to take part in a symposium organised by the VU’s Islamic Students’ Association because of the commotion over his intended participation.
In his letter, the minister pointed out that Mr al-Haddad has British nationality. EU citizens can only be denied entry to the Netherlands if they pose a threat to public order, national security or public health. “Of course, you can assume that action will be taken should such a threat occur after all,” according to Mr Opstelten.
So, this vicious hate preacher will travel to the Netherlands to spread his bile. Then, he will return to the United Kingdom, where no doubt he will continue to be feted by FOSIS and ISOCS around the country. We will not be able to stop him, and we will not be able to exclude this fascist either.
Still, look at the reaction in the Netherlands. All parties, from centre Left to centre Right, united in their opposition to the pushing of theocratic hatred and bigotry, just as they would unite against any other form of racism and fascism?
Doesn’t it shame us, in Britain, that so many give hatred a free pass?
