Al Jazeera anchor enraged over call to combat anti-Semitism

No surprise here. The Qur’an depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. The Jews in the Qur’an are called the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allah’s power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allah’s curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).

“Al Jazeera anchor attacks Muslim World League chief’s call to combat anti-Semitism,” by Ismaeel Naar, Al Arabiya, June 16, 2020 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

Another Al Jazeera presenter is in the spotlight again after tweeting a video attacking the head of the Muslim World League’s efforts to combat anti-Semitism.

Ahmed Mansour on Monday tweeted a recent speech of Dr. Mohammed Al-Issa, who is Secretary-General of MWL, in which the Saudi sheikh said that Muslims would stand “shoulder to shoulder” with Jewish people and Christians to build better interfaith relations with one another.

Al-Issa recently received an award for his efforts to combat anti-Semitism while attending a virtual conference from Mecca, Saudi Arabia, last Tuesday.

“We in the Muslim World League are proud to should to shoulder with our Jewish brothers and sisters to build understanding, respect, love and interreligious harmony,” said al-Issa, who was speaking at a virtual conference organized by the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement and the American Sephardi Federation.

In January, Sheikh al-Issa led an interfaith delegation to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial site in Poland to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and extermination camp by Soviet forces. The death camp was active during the Holocaust, in which Nazi German authorities killed around 6 million Jews.

The Qatari-owned channel has also been criticized over what its anchors share on social media. Mansour, an Egyptian television news presenter who has worked with Al Jazeera since 1997, has been known for making incendiary, often false, remarks in the past.

In 2017, Mansour caused controversy for a Facebook post in which he justified the destructive Hurricane Irma that hit Cape Verde and the Leeward Islands as a “display of God’s greatness which many dare to deny.”

In his post, Mansour invoked a verse of the Quran to justify Hurricane Irma’s wrath, writing in the now-deleted post: “And He will show you His signs, and what signs of Allah will you deny?”…
