(Jewish Chronicle) Jews are demanding an investigation of a planned memorial service for a prominent and influential U.K. Muslim cleric who believed the “Holocaust” was a divine punishment of the Jews — exactly what the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef — a prominent Chief Rabbi in Israel — claimed:
Jewish and Muslim groups have urged the Charity Commission of England and Wales to investigate a Muslim charity planning a memorial and prayer service for a cleric with a history of antisemitic remarks.
Earlier this week the JC reported that The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), which describes itself as a “leading Muslim grassroots contribution for a fair and prosperous British society since 1997”, shared a tribute to the late Yusuf Al-Qaradawi.
The statement claimed that the Egyptian-born cleric “had a profoundly positive impact on the Muslim community,” and MAB said they had the “pleasure of hosting him” when he visited the UK in 2004.
The Islamist scholar had a track record of public antisemitism, including a call for the “annihilation” of Jews during a TV sermon. Al-Qaradawi also claimed that the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were killed, was “divine punishment”.
MAB is scheduled to host a 1 October event to “remember the life of the esteemed Islamic scholar,” who died in Doha on Monday aged 96, at Maedah Banqueting Hall in East London…
…The event location is just metres away from the former site of Fieldgate Street Great Synagogue, one of the last active synagogues in Whitechapel, an area that was once home to a thriving Jewish community. The shul was closed for regular services in 2009 and the building was purchased by the East London Mosque in 2015.
A spokesperson for the Jewish Leadership Council (JLC) told the JC: “It is deeply disturbing for any group, let alone a registered UK charity, to praise the legacy of a notorious supporter of violence against Jewish people.
“Al-Qaradawi was rightly blocked by the Home Office from entering the UK in 2008 due to his justification of terrorist acts and fears his views could foster inter-community violence.
“It is vital that the Charity Commission investigates how a charitable organisation has come to release such a statement.”
A spokesperson for the UK-based charity Muslims Against Antisemitism (MAAS) said that the JLC had “made the right decision to write to the Charity Commission…
…MAAS added that it was “perverse” to “host a memorial funeral to the Muslim Brotherhood’s ideological leader,” across from the location of the historical Fieldgate Street Synagogue.
“If Qaradawi had his way, Jews would not be equal citizens…”
Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, the former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel, is on record as publicly stating, quote,
“The six million Holocaust victims were reincarnations of the souls of sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things which should not be done. They had been reincarnated in order to atone.”
While his comments created a stir in Jewish circles, he wasn’t censored or called an “antisemite” — nor were his comments unique, as other rabbis have claimed that Hitler was “divine punishment” against Jews in Europe for assimilating in “gentile” nations.
Qaradawi held the same view — that Jews were punished during the “Holocaust” — but for a different reason — for their transgressions against the non-Jewish nations.
Jews should at least be happy that Qaradawi doesn’t deny the “Holocaust” like many other Muslim clerics do — at least he’s willing to go along with that Jewish ruse.
Many Jews, of course, have no desire for Palestinians to be “equal citizens” — and many Israelis want to see the Palestinians completely “wiped off the map” so that the Jews can take all the land that they consider “Eretz Israel” — but that’s totally justifiable from their perspective.
In fact, Rabbi Yosef got a free pass when he called Arabs “snakes” and stated,
“Those evildoers, the Arabs — it says in the Gemara [Talmud] that God is sorry he ever created those sons of Ishmael.”
And let’s be honest here — the Jews are powerful enough in England that if they didn’t want any Muslims in the country, there wouldn’t be any — especially Muslims with Qaradawi’s track record.
But Jews have pushed hard to flood England — along with the rest of Europe — with Muslims because they are useful tools in their greater agenda — to destroy the native British people and replace them with easily dominated Third Worlders.
So Jews want to deny Qaradawi the right to a funeral memorial service, but Rabbi Ovadai Yosef was honored with the largest funeral in Israeli history with over 800,000 Jews attending the procession — despite his “antisemitic” comments about the “Holocaust.”
As a side note, we notice how the mosque mentioned in this article resides in Whitechapel — in a former synagogue — home to a once thriving and “diverse” Jewish community.
Whitechapel, of course, was the site of the Jack The Ripper murders — researchers are now certain from DNA evidence that the perpetrator of the notorious and gruesome murders was a Jewish immigrant from Poland — Aaron Kosminski.
These murders were the direct result of the British Jews’ demand for “equal citizenship” — after all, “diversity is our strength.”
