Imam Shaaban Aboubadria said in a Friday sermon at Masjid Al-Huda Islamic Center in Minneapolis, MN on March 15, 2019 that non-Muslim civilizations know nothing about tolerance and that Western civilization is built on bloodshed, killing, and terrorism. He said that Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi is a "terrorist son-of-a-terrorist" that is carrying out the "Zio-Crusader agenda" of the Zionists and the tyrannical and criminal Templar Crusaders. He added: "When a dog dies, the entire world is up in arms, but when an entire nation is dying – that is an issue up for debate… We went to sleep with the bombing of Gaza and woke up with the crime in New Zealand." The video was posted on Al-Huda Center's Facebook page. For more about Imam Aboubadria, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 6735.
Following are excerpts:
Shaaban Aboubadria: Tolerance and coexistence are essential issues in Islam. But the other civilizations do not know the meaning of tolerance. Killing and shedding blood is common practice for them. Western civilization is built on shedding blood, killing, and terrorism, and yet they accuse you – oh peaceful Muslims – of being terrorists.
An Arab ruler who happened to seize power (Egyptian President Al-Sisi) advised the West – while he was on a visit to Germany – to monitor mosques, as if mosques were dens of terror, even though he himself is a terrorist son-of-a-terrorist. He is killing people without a trial. He is shedding blood without any misgivings. He is the one who is carrying out the Zio-Crusader agenda. Throughout history, he has been carrying out the agenda of the Zionists, and the agenda of the tyrannical and criminal Templar Crusaders, and yet he claims to be a Muslim.
When a dog dies, the entire world is up in arms, but when an entire nation is dying – that is an issue up for debate. Who is the one that is killing Muslims in Syria? Isn't it Russia? Are the Russian planes dropping chocolate on the innocent and unarmed civilians? Or are they dropping lethal and destructive incendiary bombs on them? And what about the bombs that criminal Israel is dropping on Gaza… We went to sleep with the bombing of Gaza, and woke up with the crime in New Zealand.
