Imam Ammar Shahin Video

**Changes: the video above used the feature the entire one hour sermon which The Islamic Center of Davis left up for at least a full week until the media backlash grew. Ask them for a copy of the full sermon.**

 

On Friday, July 21st, 2017, Imam Ammar Shahin of the Islamic Center of Davis California delivered an anti-Semitic sermon in which he said, in English, “the last hour will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews.”

He also prayed saying, “O Allah liberate the Al-Aqsa mosque from the filth of the Jews.”

If a synagogue or church has a member of the clergy use the pulpit to declare “the last hour will not come until the Christians/Jews fight the Muslims” and “O God liberate the Temple Mount from the filth of the Muslims,” there would rightly be uproar.

Yet instead of apologizing, the Islamic Center of Davis issued a statement supporting Imam Ammar Shahin and accusing those who called out his bigotry as “Islamomophobia.” This is unacceptable.

Whether we are Muslims, Americans, or part of a larger interfaith community and as people interested in the global drive toward peace and compassion for our neighbors, the alienating and hostile rhetoric coming from the Islamic Center of Davis betrays American values and it betrays a world of people in our striving to honor human dignity.

We call on the Islamic Center of Davis to immediately fire Imam Ammar Shahin and publicly apologize for the shameless prostitution of faith to attack the Jewish community, the gross abuse of power and manipulation of innocent worshippers attending the Friday sermon, and for further alienating and endangering American Muslims who will suffer backlash and suspicion for the Imam’s sermon. 

Signed,
Shireen Qudosi
Director of Muslim Matters at America Matters
