Canada: Warrant out for imam who called for Jews to be killed

(Montreal) An arrest warrant has been issued for Sheikh Muhammad ibn Musa Al Nasr, the imam of the Dar al-Arkam Mosque in Montreal, after a video of him leading a sermon where he called Jews “the worst of mankind” and expressed his hope that Muslims would slaughter them on the Judgment Day.

When Jewish group B’nai Brith was made aware of the video on the Mosque website, they lodged a complaint with the police.

Which is why Al Nasr, a Palestinian-Jordanian imam, is facing a charge of wilful promotion of hatred following an investigation by the Montreal police’s hate crimes unit. However, as he is a Muslim, Al Nasr’s whereabouts are unknown, B’nai Brith suspects he may be in Jordan and is calling for his extradition. However, as this is Canada, expect Al Nasr to play the victim card and receive a million dollar payout for hurt feelings.

The Dar al-Arkam Mosque has yet to apologize for the speech, and the original Arabic version of the sermon remains posted to the mosque’s YouTube channel.
