Mayor slammed for failing to stop radical Muslims (video)


One would think that Germany would be especially sensitive to the plight of its Jewish residents in the face of lethal hatred from radical Islamists. However, Berlin mayor Michael Müller’s administration is repeatedly criticized for failing to silence radical imans like Sheikh Abu Bilal Ismail.

In 2015, a Berlin criminal court fined Ismail €1,300 for inciting hatred against Jews at the city’s al-Nur mosque, finding that the 49-year-old father of nine had delivered a “hostile and hate-filled view toward Jews as a population group in Germany.”

In his sermon, he made a chilling call to action: “Oh, Allah, destroy the Zionist Jews, they are no challenge for you. Count them and kill them to the very last one. Don’t spare a single one of them. Make them suffer terribly.”

Despite that hateful message, the Lebanese-born cleric was scheduled on Friday to speak in a Berlin mosque. After a video of his previous sermon triggered international outrage, he was reportedly replaced at the last moment by a Syrian imam who warned about spies within the congregation.

Free Democratic party politician Marcel Luthe told reporters, “The Senate [Berlin mayor’s Michael Müller’s administration] learned nothing from the appearance of the Islamic terrorist preacher at the Fussilet and Al-Nur mosques and continues to not take seriously the stoking of terrorism under the cover of practicing religion. These types of appearances should be carefully monitored.”

Luthe said criminal penalties should be imposed on those who incite hate in connection with such appearances. Nearly 100 people appeared on Friday expecting to hear Ismail’s sermon.

According to the Post, ISIS terrorist Anis Amri, who murdered twelve people in a terror attack in Berlin in December, was a member of the Fussilet mosque.

At an ISIS-friendly Danish mosque in 2016, Ismail was filmed stating, “If a married or divorced women engages in fornication, and she is not a virgin, she should be stoned to death.” He also said, “If someone violates their marriage, either man or woman, they commit adultery and their blood is thus halal and they should be killed by stoning. If the woman is a virgin, the punishment is whipping.”

Asked by a reporter on Friday what Ismail meant when he talked about stoning and killing Jews, the Imam’s companion said the statements “were taken out of context.”

In June, Müller let the Al Quds march in Berlin. Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid wrote in a letter to the mayor which said, “The leader of Hezbollah, whose image was held aloft in your streets, delivered his Al Quds Day speech in Lebanon this week while crowds chanted ‘Death to Israel.’ When people march in the streets of Berlin holding up photographs of the leader of Hezbollah, they celebrate the murder of our families and of our children, they celebrate the attempt to destroy the fragile coexistence between Jews and Arabs in Israel. They celebrate terror. Mr. Mayor, your decision to remain silent in the face of this incitement and hatred is a grave mistake. Allowing the glorification of terrorism in your city won’t appease extremists, it will embolden them.”

Recent intelligence agency reports show that since 2015, there are 250 active Hezbollah members in the city. The report documented 70 Hamas members in Berlin. Germany and the EU classify Hamas as a terrorist organization, but Müller’s administration has yet to clamp down on Hamas operatives.
