Contemporary Islamist rhetoric

Contemporary Islamist rhetoric
You know this issue of Allah informing us that the Jews are those people who He’s angry with… You know even if you stack it up to the facts on the ground so it’s something you can understand as well. For example, the first person to get their hand cut under the Sharia was a Jew. The first person to get stoned for adultery was a Jew. The founder of the the Shi’a Rafidah, may Allah curse them, Abdul ibn Saba his mother was Sauda - a Jew. The founders of the corrupt Christianity, although they don’t like us to say it was a man called Paul or Saul, or I don’t how to say it - Saul?
Jew, and he pretended to become Muslim… pretended to become Christian and invented all of this you know corruption that we see nowadays in terms of the Christianity. And even the one who tried to kill the final messenger Muhammad, salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam, the mercy to mankind - guess what? - was a Jew. How is it that a particular race of people - 0.2% of the world population are going to cause so much corruption? The Jews, or the Zionists - many people look up to them. We hear in our days everywhere
They say: “Oh, we need to become like the Jews. We need to imitate the Jews.” “We need to follow the Jews. Look to Israel, look to their technology. Why are they so advanced?” “Why are we so, you know, non-advanced? Why are we so backwards?” But if you think about it, this is something which, it shouldn’t be in the minds at all of any believer because number one, Allah, He will punish them in the Hereafter, and secondly he’s going to destroy them in this life. And how is he going to destroy them? Are some super Jews going to come? Some super Zionists going to come and take authority from them? No, it’s going to be the Muslims.
They can, the Zionists, they don’t need to live this corrupted life. They can be saved as well. Just stop your corruption, embrace Islam and do the good deeds. That’s all you have to do but they want to be arrogant.

The following is an excerpt from a lecture posted on the Internet on September 28, 2014 by British Islamist activist Siddhartha Dhar, known as “Abu Rumaysah.”

Please note that this video is brought as an example of antisemitic discourse in Islamist rhetoric. It does not claim to present a full picture of Islamic discourse regarding Israel and the Jews nor a complete representation of the various topics discussed by activists and academics in this sphere.
