A prominent Swiss Muslim cleric reportedly denounced Jews and Zionism at France’s largest Islamic conference.
Michele Tribalat, a French sociologist who attended the Union of Islamic Organizations in France (UOIF) 31st annual conference, in an article for the French daily Le Figaro highlighted a heavily anti-Semitic speech at the gathering by Hani Ramadan, director of the Islamic Center of Geneva.
“All the unhappiness comes from Jews who have one thing in mind, realize the dream of Greater Israel,” Ramadan reportedly said.
“[In the] United States, no one can be elected president without having to kowtow to AIPAC,” Ramadan also said, according to Tribalat. “Same thing in France…[nobody can be] be elected without the approval of the CRIF (the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions in France).”
