U.S. imam claims Allah turned Jews into apes
An influential Muslim imam in Washington state declared in a sermon that Allah was so angry with the Jews of a certain village that he turned them into apes.
The Jews, he explained, “were transformed into apes by Allah for having rebelled against him by setting fishing nets on Friday, before the Sabbath, and collecting the fish on Sunday.”
He said the story was never exposed because the Jews cover up bad stories about themselves and always pretend to be pious.
“Laughing, he told how the Jews who had been transformed into apes cried because they couldn’t recognize one another as apes,” the MEMRI report said.
“Then Imam Joban said that in another verse, the violators were transformed into pigs. He discussed the question whether the transformed Jews had offspring and said that there are two views about this. However, he mentioned two cases, from Egypt and Malaysia, where newborns looked like descendants of apes and pigs.
