In an address that aired May 24, 2012 on Fadak TV, London-based Kuwaiti Shi'ite cleric Yasser Habib stated that Caliph Omar Ibn Al-Khattab "was without a doubt a passive homosexual" and that "the same goes for the caliphs Othman Ibn Affan, Muawiyya, Yazid, and the rulers and sultans of the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties, as well as some of the rulers and sultans of our day and age" (to view this clip on MEMRI TV, visit http://www.memri.org/legacy/clip/0/0/0/0/0/0/3453).
In a June 5, 2012 lesson on the channel, Yasser Al-Habib said that Caliph Omar "was so ugly that if a pregnant woman met him on the road, she would have a miscarriage. She could not stand his ugliness" (to view this clip on MEMRI TV, visit http://www.memri.org/legacy/clip/3472).
Fadak TV is dominated by Sheikh Habib, who fled Kuwait in 2004 after he spent a year in prison for cursing the Caliphs Omar and Abu Bakr and the Prophet Muhammad’s wife Aisha. He was then sentenced in absentia to 10 years in prison. In September 2010, Kuwait revoked his citizenship.
The following are excerpts from both clips:
Yasser Al-Habib, May 24, 2012: Caliph Omar "Was... A Passive Homosexual; The Same Goes For The Caliphs Othman Ibn Affan, Muawiyya, Yazid..."
Yasser Habib: "Anyone who consents to being called 'Emir of the Believers' is a passive homosexual. Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, for example, who willingly assumed this title, was, without a doubt, a passive homosexual. The same goes for the caliphs Othman Ibn Affan, Muawiyya, Yazid, and the rulers and sultans of the Umayyad and Abbasid dynasties, as well as some of the rulers and sultans of our day and age.
"For example, the king of Morocco bears this title, and he is referred to as 'the Emir of the Believers' by the [Moroccan] media. This is how you know that he is a passive homosexual."
"This is in addition to the evidence revealed by Western media, which showed that the current king of Morocco is indeed a passive homosexual who belongs to the homosexual community. This was leaked from his palace by his assistants, his servants, and his 'boys,' whom he would penetrate and who would penetrate him. They fled to Europe, sought asylum, and exposed all this."
"Another such example is the person who ruled Afghanistan for a short time – the so-called Mullah Omar. [...]
Caliph Omar "Had An Anal Disease... Someone [With This Disease]... Cannot Calm Down Unless He Is Penetrated Again And Again"
"It is told [in the hadith] that Omar Ibn Al-Khattab had an anal disease, which could be cured only by semen. One should know that this is a well-known medical condition, which is also mentioned in sacred texts. Someone who, God forbid, has been penetrated in the anus – a worm grows within him, due to the semen discharged in him... A disease develops in his anus, and as a result, he cannot calm down, unless... That’s right, it becomes like an addiction, and he cannot calm down unless he is penetrated again and again." [...]
"The Shi'ites Are Undoubtedly Protected From This Disease And From Committing This Abominable And Hideous Act"
"The Shi'ites are undoubtedly protected from this disease, and from committing this abominable and hideous act. [...]
"As for the Nasibis [who hate the Prophet Muhammad's family], they are definitely afflicted with this homosexuality. [...]
"One of the devils is present at the birth of every human being. If Allah knows that the newborn is one of our Shi'ites, He fends off that devil, who cannot harm the newborn. But if the newborn is not one of our Shi'ites, the devil inserts his index finger into the anus of the newborn, who thus becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is not a Shi'ite, the devil inserts his index finger into this newborn's anus, and when he grows up, he becomes a passive homosexual. If the newborn is a female, the devil inserts his index finger into her vagina, and she becomes a whore.
"At that moment, the newborn cries loudly, as he comes out of his mother's womb. Note that some children cry normally at birth, while others cry loudly and incessantly. You should know that this is the work of that devil, according to this narration." [...]
Yasser Al-Habib, June 5, 2012: Caliph Omar "Was So Ugly That If A Pregnant Woman Met Him... She Would Have A Miscarriage"
Yasser Al-Habib: "When Palestine was conquered, Omar Ibn Al-Khattab rode there on his donkey. Their historians say that Omar arrived, entered the church, and prayed in it. It is said that the people of that church drew the image of Omar on one of the walls. Indeed, his image was found on one of the walls.
"It is a very ugly image indeed. The man has a very long beard, down to his belly-button, more or less. He is very ugly. This image exists."
Member of audience: "As ugly as Saddam [Hussein]?"
Yasser Al-Habib: "Saddam was handsome, brother. Why be unfair? Saddam had a handsome face, especially in his youth. His deeds were ugly, but he looked normal.
"In Omar’s case, his face was ugly. Even the Sunnis themselves, in their writings, say that he was so ugly that if a pregnant woman met him on the road, she would have a miscarriage. She could not stand his ugliness."
Member of audience: "Did this really happen?"
Yasser Al-Habib: "Yes, it did. A woman happened to meet Omar on the road, and she had a miscarriage. If a woman saw Omar, she would have a miscarriage.
"This automatically makes one think of Fatima. Women miscarried just from looking at that lowlife, and he attacked Fatima. All the abominations and bad qualities were combined in Omar."
