In a Friday, October 23, 2020 sermon at Masjid As-Sunnah An-Nabawiyyah North Miami, Imam Fadi Kablawi said that the recent beheading of French schoolteacher Samuel Paty was "bogus," "fiction," and a "bedtime story." He said that he does not approve of the murder of Paty, but that he does not believe it was a Chechen who killed him. Dr. Kablawi suggested that French authorities "made up this story" and took a Muslim prisoner, shot him, and then killed Paty in order to accuse the Muslims of the crime. In addition, Dr. Kablawi compared the attack to 9/11 and said that people who believe that 9/11 was carried out by people from the caves of Tora Bora must be "ignorant [people] who vote."
Dr. Kablawi elaborated that voting in elections in an infidel country is a form of polytheism. Furthermore, saying that there is no difference between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, Dr. Kablawi added: "All cows look alike, all pigs look alike." For more about Dr. Yousef Fadi Kablawi, see MEMRI TV Clips No. 8389, No. 8136 and No. 8063. The sermon was streamed live on Masjid As-Sunnah An-Nabawiyyah's Facebook page.
Imam Dr. Yousef Fadi Kablawi: "They [Donald Trump and Joe Biden] are all... All cows look alike, all pigs look alike. That is not the issue. I don't want you to take my words [as though] I am telling you to go vote. No, no, I am against voting, wholeheartedly.
"It is a form of polytheism, when you choose and elect people to put them in power, who are going to rule, not according to the shari'a of Allah, because some [people] will say: 'Oh, this is an infidel country.' Well, if you accept that and admit that, then why are you becoming part of their system?
"You can see how much they glorify the teacher who was slaughtered. As I said it here, and I said it before... In other lectures, we are against this action. We are against what the brother said or did... That Chechen brother, supposedly... That is if we buy the story. I don't buy the story, it is bogus. Unless [President Macron] realizes that he is nothing but less than a dog, he will continue to be offended. So they have to come back with something. They have to make up something. That is exactly what this story is all about. I mean, these people have thousands and thousands of Muslim prisoners – in France – for whatever reason. They couldn't pick anyone, through him there, shoot him and kill that teacher, and then [say]: 'Here is a Muslim killing...' We are sick of these stories, these are fiction, bedtime stories, not even qualified to be that. When will we realize that we should not take the world of the infidels [as] credible?
"Who in the world, today, still believes that dozens of people who came out of the caves of Tora Bora, and suddenly, they are flying two airplanes exactly, into two towers that have 110 floors, and they hit right on the top and suddenly, everything like... An engineer... You will not even have that in movies. Who still believes that? Those ignorant [people] who are going to vote."
