We’ve previously posted remarks by the Egyptian-German author Hamed Abdel-Samad, all of them translated from the German. The following lecture in Arabic by Mr. Abdel-Samad is directed at his fellow Arabs, and has been translated by MEMRI:
From the video notes:
In a lecture posted on the Internet on March 21, Egyptian-German scholar Hamed Abdel-Samad said that the Prophet Muhammad had lowered the Jews to a “subhuman level, viewing them as animals,” and he compared the treatment of the Jews in the years following Muhammad’s death to that of the Nazis. “This hatred is poisoning us” and “preventing us from dealing with our problems in a serious way,” said Abdel-Samad, adding that “instead of poisoning one generation after another with this hatred, we should let them learn something from humanity,” in order to enable them to “overcome the barrier of hatred and of fear of the other.” The lecture is titled “Islamic Fascism and the Jews.” For additional lectures by Abdel-Samad, see MEMRI TV clips 5443 and 5356.
