Imam Quick on Jewish “Filth”

Back in February we posted about a religious establishment known as Masjid Toronto, in which multiple prayers were intoned to “purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews”. The subtitled videos of those prayers caused some controversy up there in the Frozen North, and various Muslims became upset. Some of the complainants asserted that the translation from the Arabic was not accurate; that the word used to described the Jews is not adequately glossed by the English word “filth”.

Well, we don’t have the same problem with Imam Quick — coincidentally also based in Toronto — who intones his prayers and declaims his sermons in English with a south-of-the-border accent. In this audio of a sermon, recorded back in 2012, you can hear the esteemed Prof. Dr. Quick refer to Jews as — you guessed it! — “filth”:

Sheikh Abdullah Hakim Quick is an African-American imam originally from the Boston area who exported himself from the benighted hinterlands of New England to greener pastures in Ontario. He now preaches and lectures in Toronto.

  1. And will this lead American Jews to re-consider their overwhelming support for mass immigration by Muslims? My confident prediction: not on your life!

    Jewish-Muslim alliance formed against anti-Semitism, Islamophobia

    The day after President-elect Donald Trump appointed a man accused of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia as his chief strategist, two of the nation’s largest Jewish and Muslim advocacy groups formed an unprecedented partnership to fight bigotry.

    • Thanks for the reference. I can use it to gently discomfort the Jewish nationalists who advocate for unrestricted right of Jewish immigration to Israel. I ask them if they want the US Jews to bring their politics to Israel.

      My position is that any country needs to screen its immigrants on whatever criteria it chooses, but their view of government, culture and politics is definitely important. It absolutely makes no sense to import Communists or Muslims, whose views are diametrically opposed to the principles of the US Constitution.

  2. I think the US owes Canada a strong measure of gratitude for taking Sheikh Abdullah Hakim Quick off our hands. Canada continues to show its friendship and goodwill towards its southern neighbor.
