'Did I say that?'

I'm sure many of you will recall this video of Muhammad Hussein, the Mufti of the 'Palestinian Authority' calling for the murder of Jews. But to refresh your memories, let's go to the videotape.

PA Mufti calls for the killing of Jews quoting Islamic Hadith from Palestinian Media Watch on Vimeo.

I'm sure you'll all be shocked to hear that as a result of an attack on Hussein by a Turkish Islamic scholar, he's now denying that he ever said what you all just saw him say.
PMW’s documentation of the remarks was widely redistributed on Israeli news outlets on Sunday, such as the newspaper Israel Hayom, which published the comments on its front page, and Army Radio which discussed them on its flagship morning talk show.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu also responded to the harsh comments and asked the Attorney General’s Office to open an investigation into them. Netanyahu said that the comments were “a serious crime that all nations must condemn.”

The Mufti, however, is now denying that he called for genocide of Jews. According to a report on Channel 2 News, Hussein told an Egyptian media outlet that “sentences were cut from my speech.” He added that “Islam calls for respect of all human beings. I am amazed that these comments were attributed to me.”

Last week, Turkish Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar made a scorching response to the claim by the Mufti. During his nightly talk show on the A9TV satellite television channel, Oktar clarified that there is no source in the Koran that calls for murder of the Jews -- and no justification for it.

“You can go nowhere by bloodshed. All will inflict affliction upon you if you shed blood; you will simply be on a downward spiral of bloodshed,” he warned. “Pull yourselves together. I address those who advocate murder. Jews are the descendants of prophets -- Allah pre-destined them as Jews,” he emphasized. “They live as Jews. The Koran refers to them as the People of the Book... one cannot simply go and kill them.”
Hussein said what he said and he cannot deny it. I trust Oktar did not need a translation to understand what Hussein said, so we can consider PMW's translation confirmed.

Obviously, Hussein disagrees with Oktar. Unfortunately, the Turkish government probably disagrees with Oktar too. Hussein obviously did not expect the uproar his comments caused (which, frankly, was magnified by YouTube taking down the video and suspending PMW's account for a couple of days) and is now trying to practice a little taqiyya in order to avoid going to jail. But we all know the truth: Whether Islam calls for it or not, it is clear that at least in this part of the world, most Muslims would like to murder every Jew on whom they can place their hands.

Even Adnan Oktar won't deny that we are commanded to fight the enemies of Islam. Those who seek the destruction of our faith are legitimate targets for Jihad.

Ask Odnan if you don't believe me.

In other words, all you have to do is label someone an enemy of Islam and then Islamists will be allowed (or is it commanded?) to kill anyone of that religion.

You've already made the point quite clear Chayma, but I never tire of your posts so please go on!

Please don't put words into my mouth.

I said 'enemies of Islam' I didn't say Jews.

Just as I wasn't talking of all the members of one faith(in this Judaism), neither was Adnan Oktar.

His views on Islamophobes and right wing Zionism won't be any different to mine.
