Miami Imam Fadi Kablawi On Backlash After He Referred To 'The Tyrannical Jews' In A Sermon: I Received Threatening Calls; 'From The River To The Sea' Isn't Genocidal, Most Of You Have Dual Citizenship, From Poland, Germany, NY, Texas, Aventura; This Land Does Not Belong To Americans, It Belongs To Allah

Miami imam Dr. Fadi Kablawi responded in his January 19, 2024 Friday sermon at Masjid As Sunnah An Nabawiyyah North Miami, which was streamed live on Facebook, to backlash from a sermon in which he referred to "the tyrannical Jews" (see MEMRI TV clip number 10728). He said that his office has been "hammered" with threatening telephone calls from "lowlife people" and that they left false reviews on his website and Google. Kablawi said that "they are going crazy," because he supplicated: "Oh Allah, destroy the tyrant Jews," but that he has no qualms about calling for the destruction of tyrant Christians, Hindus, or Muslims.

Later in the sermon, he said that he opposes a ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinians, that justice will prevail, and that the occupation between "the River and the Sea" will end. Kablawi said that this slogan is not a call for genocide, because most Jews have dual citizenship, from Poland, Romania, Germany, as well as New York, Texas, and Aventura (a suburb of Miami, with a substantial Jewish population). He said that people tell him to go back to where he came from, but that he can only go back if they get out of his country. Kablawi went on to say that for now, the United States is his land, and that the Zionists and the Americans do not own it, as it belongs to Allah.

Dr. Kablawi, who is a dentist, immigrated to the United States from Jordan. For more information about him, see MEMRI TV clips Nos. 8810, 8752, 8063, 8136, 8389, and 8404.

I Did Not Call To Destroy All Jews, But To Destroy Tyrant Jews; I Call For Destroying Christian, Hindu, And Muslim Tyrants, Too

Dr. Fadi Kablawi: "They will be kicked out [of Palestine], and they will be driven out. Whoever wants to live under Muslims in Palestine will be more than welcome.

[...]

"Brothers, in the last week, my office was hammered, my phone was hammered, with these...what do you call them...hecklers...with these lowlife people. Threats, cursing, death [threats]...Just because of a video where I got translated making the supplication: 'Oh Allah, bring annihilation upon tyrannical Jews.' They are going crazy because the supplication says: 'Oh Allah, destroy the tyrant Jews.' Well, guess what? Oh Allah, destroy the tyrant Christians, destroy the tyrants [of] of the Hindus, and destroy the tyrants of the Muslims. Destroy all the tyrants. We don't want any tyrants. There is no place for tyrants. There is no defense for tyrants. But when you are upset and going crazy, and putting false reviews on my website or Google reviews, you think you are going to scare us?

[...]

"This is no call to destroy all Jews, to kill all Jews. This is what you put in your head as a victim. Get out of my face. I never called for that. Bring one proof. Any time that we talk about this, we are talking in conjunction with the oppression that you are committing.

[...]

"Most Of You [Jews] Have Dual Citizenship – Poland, Romania, Germany, New York, Texas... [Miami Suburb] Aventura"; For Now, The U.S. Is Our Land – You Zionists And Americans Don't Own It; This Land Belongs To Allah"

"We are talking about the Zionists who are killing our brothers and sisters. For the last 75 years they have been killing our brothers and sisters, and you expect us to stay quiet? We will be quiet when you do what you are supposed to do. Ceasefire? No more ceasefire, that is not enough anymore. You are refusing to do that, but that is not enough anymore. It will not happen, there is no more ceasefire, in my opinion. There is no more ceasefire, it will not work anymore. They will not stop it. Whatever happened will not be taken just like that and accepted, that's it. That is the end, inshallah. In the end, justice will prevail, freedom will take place.

"Occupation will end – guess from where to where? From the River to the Sea. [People say]: 'Oh, that is genocidal.' Oh, really? I already told you, you are welcome to stay, we are not killing anybody. Most of you have got dual citizenship – Poland, Romania, Germany, New York, Texas. You have all got it...Fine, these are not citizenships, but very much...Go there. Aventura.

"[I am told]: 'He should go back to where he came from." Where did you come from? Well, get out of my country, and I will go back. Very simple, get out of our land, and we will go back. We will go back, for now, this is our land. You don't own it, you Zionists don't own it, you Americans don't own it, the government doesn't own it, nobody owns it. This land belongs to Allah, this land belongs to Allah."
