On April 14, 2020, a lecture titled "Muslims in the West" by Imam Taufique Aziz, the Imam of the Muslim Community Organization of South New Jersey, was uploaded to The 5:2 Initiative YouTube channel. In the lecture, Imam Aziz discussed several topics relating to living as Muslims in Western and non-Muslim countries. He said that Buddhist monks in Burma are killing Rohingya Muslims and their children, chopping them into pieces, and even eating them. On the topic of the COVID-19 pandemic, he said that the infidels in the West are unaware of basic principles of hygiene, but that these principles are central to Islamic practice, and he pointed out that Americans used to mock Muslim women for wearing the niqab, but that there are now places one cannot enter without covering one's face. Citing the Quran, Imam Aziz said that Muslims cannot take Jews and Christians as friends. He elaborated that it is forbidden to wish somebody Merry Christmas, but that Muslims are obligated to respect the law in non-Muslims countries, because visas, green cards, and passports constitute a sort of peace treaty.

Taufique Aziz: "Look at the Rohingya Muslims, Burma, these Buddhists killing them, chopping them into pieces.

[...]

"Peaceful Buddhist monks killing these Rohingya children, and some of them, how sick is their minds that they're chopping up Muslim children and even eating them.

[...]

"Oh, the most peaceful religion is Buddhism. Then why are you killing children and eating them? The monks are doing this.

[...]

"Look at this Covid-19. What's going on? This kafir society telling people, I mean, this is common sense, oh wash your hands with soap.

[...]

"Wash your private areas. Wash this. Take a bath. Clean yourself.

[...]

"This is our religion. A principle in our religion.

[...]

"These kafir are misguided, they didn't know.

[...]

"We have to show them the path.

[...]

"Look what they were doing, making fun of our sister who wear the niqab.

[...]

"They used to make fun of them, calling them terrorists.

[...]

"Well, now you have signs on stores. You are not welcome here unless you cover your face.

[...]

"They have no sense of right or wrong. They're just living more themselves, satisfying what's in their stomachs and what's between their legs.

[...]

"Do not take the Jews and Christians as your close friends. This is a command from Allah.

[...]

"We didn't come here to kill them wherever we find them.

[...]

"Preserve your Islamic identity.

[...]

"Oh, he's so kind. He's such a nice Christian. Uh... let me say 'Merry Christmas' to him. No, no, no. Doesn't matter how kind he is. You don't trim your religion. You be kind, have a nice relationship, but you don't sacrifice your Islam.

[...]

"What's a peace treaty in our day and age? The Visa, the Green Card, the American passport.

[...]

"You cannot help your Muslim brother against the kafir with whom you have a peace treaty.

[...]

"You find Muslims, they come here, they cheat the welfare system. They cheat the tax system. They cheat this. They cheat that. A Muslim commits a crime, he hides that Muslim and he will not expose him to the police or anything like that. All of that is haram in the sharia."
