A prophesy appearing to call for the murder of Jews repeated during a sermon at a Copenhagen mosque has caused outrage in Denmark after it was released online.
Mundhir Abdallah was reported to police after being filmed repeating in Arabic an anti-Semitic hadith- a teaching of Muhammad. The verse says “Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them.”
He declares a “caliphate” is coming – that is a state governed in accordance with Islamic Sharia law. It will be part of a jihad to unite the Muslim community and liberate the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, according to the Islamic faith.
Then Abdallah says, “the words of the Prophet Muhammad will be fulfilled” and cites the hadith.
A part of the 30-minute address – originally released on YouTube and Facebook – was later translated by the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute (Memri).
