Montreal police issue arrest warrant for hate preacher

Montreal police issue arrest warrant for hate preacher

Months after a Jewish group in Canada demanded police action against Muslim hate preacher, Sheikh Muhammad ibn Musa Al Nasr, above, it was reported at the weekend that the Montreal police’s hate crimes unit has finally taken action.

In March, B’nai Brith told the police that, in a speech delivered on December 23, 2016 at the Dar al-Arkam mosque, Al Nasr described Jews as “the most evil of mankind” and as “human demons,” before quoting from a hadith which said:

At the end of time … the stone and the tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me – come and kill him!’

Accusing the police of dragging their feet, Michael Mostyn, Chief Executive Officer of B’nai Brith Canada, asked:

When will Canada finally recognise that we are not immune to racism and anti-Semitism, and that it is this type of rhetoric that directly leads to radicalization all over the world?

Well, the police eventually issued an arrest warrant, and Al Nasr, a Palestinian-Jordanian imam, is now facing a charge of wilful promotion of hatred.

In welcoming the action, Mostyn said he hopes the charge will deter future threats and assaults on the Jewish community in Canada.

Today, the Jewish community of Montreal can sleep safer, knowing that there is a price to pay for inciting violence against our community. This incident and others like it demonstrate that anti-Semitism, especially in the guise of religion, remains a serious problem in Canada today.

Al Nasr’s whereabouts are unknown, but B’nai Brith suspects he may be in Jordan and is calling for his extradition. Several Muslim groups have condemned the speech.

The Dar al-Arkam Mosque has still yet to apologise for the speech and the original Arabic version of the sermon remains posted to the mosque’s YouTube channel, according to B’nai Brith.

The warrant for Al Nasr’s arrest comes on the heels of an investigation into a rapper known as Madd Cold, above – real name , “an Iraqi-American geo-political thinker” – who is being investigated for inciting violence against the Jewish community following a complaint by B’nai Brith.

    Arrest him!?!?! WHY!?!?! According to his book o’BS he is 100% right! What is different between him and any religion with their books o’BS??? The main difference is that he is up front with his hate and the others hide and stab you in the back!! Don’t arrest, watch and listen and observe then arrest the dimwits that act on this speech!!! This preacher like all preachers is a coward and has to use speech to get others to do his hate! He is nothing its the psychotic ones we need to find!

    I don’t know why but the sight of the ‘geo-political thinker’ above reminds me of the word ‘throwback’. If he is an example of a future political activist then I’ll swallow every bitter drop of my prejudice and vote for Donald Trump….Ssshhheeeesh!

    ‘Palestinian-Jordanian’?
    Oops! You aren’t supposed to admit that Jordan was arbitrarily carved out of the Palestinian Mandate, and stuck under a king imported from Saudi Arabia. No one minds ‘Palestinians’ living under imposed foreign rulers…so long as they are Arab despots.

    He is the wrong kind of muslim. But then all Muslims are the wrong kind of Muslim.
    And so on with all other religions.

    Corbyn would welcome him here.

    Trouble is there are thousands more just like him spreading islamic filth and hate all over the world. Thousands. And its their job. Its what they get paid for doing. Its what they love doing. Its the dream job of millions of muslims who have been taught to do exactly what the koran demands. Get paid and respected for being a hate mongering hypocrite. Nice work if you can get it especially if you are otherwise unemployable.

    I don’t know who you are “Maggie” but your comment on Corbyn is a totally unwarranted smear and has no basis in reality. You’d be better off leaving your misguided comments on the Daily Mail website.
