Dr. Fadi Yousef Kablawi, the imam of the North Miami Islamic Center, also known as Masjid As-Sunnah An-Nabawiyyah, criticized people who seek peace and normalization with Jews, whom he referred to as “the offspring of apes and pigs” who spread “corruption” upon the land. Imam Kablawi made these remarks as part of a Friday sermon delivered in the mosque and posted on its official Facebook page on March 12, 2021. Dr. Kablawi continued to say that the Muslim Kurds, who issued a stamp featuring the Pope, are seeking honor through the infidels. He elaborated that even Protestant Christians consider the followers of the Catholic Church to be disbelievers, idolaters, and pagans. Dr. Kalbawi lamented that Jews rarely convert to Islam and said that it is the Christians, agnostics, and atheists who have the willingness and tendency to do so. Dr. Kablawi, who is a dentist, immigrated to the United States from Jordan. For more information about him, see MEMRI TV clips Nos. 8063, 8136, 8389, and 8404.
Dr. Fadi Yousef Kablawi: “Some people talk about peace and normalization and say that these are good people… Are you crazy? You are fools, that is what you are. You sold your religion, your people, your creed, your nations, and your nationalism, and you stand for nothing, because you are losers. You have nothing to stand up for, so you seek your honor from others… Who do you go to? The brothers of the apes and pigs. Huh? The offspring of pigs and apes – that’s who you seek you honor from?
“Criminals – [those] people are criminals. There is no corruption in the world that the [Jews] are not behind. [You should] know it for a fact.
“You hear that people are converting [to Islam], today. Do you hear [about] a Jew converting [to Islam]? Once in a blue moon. Who converts [to Islam]? Christians, agnostics, atheists. Those people have the willingness and the tendency to convert, but do you hear of a Jew converting [to Islam]?
“The Kurds, the Muslim Kurds, they issued a stamp. [They issued] a stamp with the map of the land they desire, which includes part of Turkey, part of Iraq, and part of Syria. This is their confederate in northern Iraq, and they put the Pope’s picture on top of it. Are they seeking honor through the infidels or not? Are they proud of the infidels or not? Is this blasphemy or not? Is this walking out of the fold of Islam or not?
“The Pope and the Catholic Church which he heads and leads – Protestant Christians consider them to be disbelievers. They consider them pagans, because they have idols and statues of Mary and Jesus and all that. Other denominations of Christianity consider the Catholic Church idolators – idol worshippers.”
