Saudi cleric Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid said in a recent talk show that the Jews, with their "dark history," are "the plague of history, its malignant disease," and that the Muslims' war with them would continue "to the end of time, when they are led by the Anti-Christ." Sheikh Al-Munajid's statements aired on the Saudi Al-Majd TV channel on May 15, 2016
Host: "Jews are the plague of history, its malignant disease. Their history is a dark one and their stories are soiled with blood."
Muhammad al-Munajid: "The Jews are among the enemies of (Islam). In fact, they are at the top of the list. The Jews today are the Jews of the past. This requires no proof. Allah made their traits clear to us, and the Prophet Muhammad clarified that our war with them will continue until the end of time when they will be led by the Anti-Christ. Allah said that 'the Jews are the strongest in enmity to the believers.' He said that the Jews 'strive to spread corruption in the land.' He said: 'They hasten into sin and aggression.' He said: 'Nor did they forbid one another the iniquities which they committed.'
"Ibn Qayyim said: 'The Jews are the nation that incurred the wrath of Allah. They are a people of lies, fabrications, treachery, and conspiracies. They are the slayers of prophets, the profiteers from that which is forbidden. They are the filthiest of nations with the basest of character.'"
Host: "Is hatred of Jews considered a form of worship in and of itself?"
Muhammad al-Munajid: "The question should be: Do they hate us? These people believe that anyone who does not adhere to their religion is a filthy pig. This is written in their distorted Torah. Jews have the right to rape non-Jewish women. This is also written in their books.
"Some people say: Why must we be hostile to them? Why can't we love them and spread love, brotherhood and peace upon Earth? What peace and what brotherhood are you talking about?! If we treat them this way, will they respond in kind? Or will they hate us, fight us, kill us, and rob us?"
