An Islamic preacher on the Har Habayis in Yerushalayim told congregants that the Nazis burned the Jews of Europe during the Holocaust because they had been kidnapping children to use their blood in Pesach matzah.
He also claimed that Jews worship Satan, plotted the 9/11 attacks, and control the Freemasons who sacrifice their wives and children in secret ceremonies.
A English translation of the sermon, that was captured on video, was provided on Monday by Palestinian Media Watch, a non-governmental media monitoring organization.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a letter to Jordan’s King Abdullah and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urging them to “immediately take action against Sheikh Khaled al-Mughrabi, the religious teacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque who is on the payroll of the Waqf [the PA religious authority], for using his class to promote the infamous blood libel screed that ‘explains’ why the Nazi Holocaust took place. The ‘Blood Libel’ is a Christian medieval canard that accuses Jews of using the blood of children to make Passover matzah,” the center said in a statement sent out to the press.
“The Temple Mount is a site of ultimate religious importance to Judaism and revered also by both Christianity and Islam. It should be an area that promotes peace, tolerance, and mutual understanding. However, the Al Aqsa Mosque has now been used to repeat horrific lies and legitimize genocide. Left unchallenged, the Sheik’s ‘sermon’ will only spawn more hatred and violence,” the letter to Abdullah and Abbas read, according to the statement.
During the recent sermon captured on video, al-Mughrabi says: “On the holiday of Passover it is forbidden for them to eat regular bread. These matzahs [unleavened Passover bread] were not kneaded in the regular way, but rather with the blood of children. In the end it reached the point where they were burned in Germany, because of these things, because they kidnapped young children.”
