Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada of the Muslim Youth of Victoria said that the Muslims’ enmity towards the Jews is "just and logical" because they can differentiate between combatants and dhimmis. He made his remarks in a Friday sermon delivered at the Muslim Youth of Victoria Islamic Center on May 21, 2021 and which was posted on its social media accounts on May 24. Kathrada said that anyone who does not hate "the enemies of Allah" has no place in the mosque and should find a church or a synagogue. He explained that the Muslims hate the Jews because of their "disbelief in Allah." He concluded his sermon asking Allah to grant victory to the mujahideen and asking Allah to destroy His enemies.

"The Enmity Of The Believers Towards The Jews Is Just And Sensible"
Younus Kathrada: "Let's begin by reminding ourselves of this enemy, about whom Allah says in the Quran, I will give you the meaning of the verse: 'And the Yahud say...' Yahud translated as Zionists, Zionist Jews, whatever you like...
"The animosity of the believers towards the Yahud is based on religious grounds.
"Because the people of faith hate the Yahud because of their disbelief in Allah and because of their rejection and denial of the prophets, and because of their injustice towards the people.
"There is a difference between the two [types of] enmity. The enmity of the Jews towards the believers is unjust, whereas the enmity of the believers towards the Jews is just and sensible. The believers differentiate between Jews who are combatants those who are dhimmis, and those with whom they have a pact.
"If You Do Not Hate The Opponents Of Allah You Have No Faith... The Place For You Is Not The Mosque"
"If you do not hate the opponents of Allah you have no faith. Go find yourself a church. Go find yourself a synagogue. But the place for you is not the mosque, if you do not hate those who curse Allah and insult Him. Having said that, we have not ever called for violence towards others.
"Oh Allah, Grant Victory To Those Who Wage Jihad For Your Sake Everywhere"
"Oh Allah. Give strength to Islam and the Muslims, humiliate the infidels and the polytheists, and destroy the enemies of Islam. Oh Allah, grant victory to those who wage jihad for Your sake everywhere.
"Oh Allah, demonstrate upon Your enemies the wonders of Your might. Oh Allah, disperse them and rend them asunder. Oh Allah, divide their hearts. Oh Allah, shake the ground under their feet."
