In a Friday sermon in northern Italy, Sheik Abd Al-Barr Al-Rawdhi prayed to Allah to "count [the Jews] one by one and kill them to the very last one." Al-Rawdhi, leading the prayers at Al-Rahma Mosque in San Donà di Piave, the Province of Venice, called upon Allah to "turn their food to poison and make the air they breathe blazing hot." The sermon was posted on the Internet on July 29, 2014.
Following are excerpts:
Sheik Abd Al-Barr Al-Rawdhi: What can we possibly expect from [the Jews], whose hearts are harder than stone? What can we possibly expect from people whose hands are soiled with the blood of the prophets, not to mention the blood of defenseless, innocent people? What can we possibly expect from people who lost all respect for Allah, saying to Moses: "Show us Allah outright"? What can we possibly expect from people who said: "The hand of Allah is shackled"? "May their own hands be shackled, and may they be cursed for what they said."
Oh Allah, bring upon them that which will make us happy. Oh Allah, count them one by one, and kill them to the very last one. Do not spare a single one of them. Turn their food to poison, make the air they breathe blazing hot, make their slumber full of grief, and make their days black. Oh Allah, plant fear in their hearts.
