New York: imam reinterprets Islamic tradition calling for war with Jews

A New York-based imam made a rare attempt at reinterpreting a selection of Islamic texts that make harsh statements against Jews.

“This hadith is very strange, and we should reexamine it, because it leads Islam to disaster. It says: ‘Judgment Day will not come before the Muslims fight the Jews, and then the rocks and the trees will say: Oh Muslim, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him,’” said Imam Tareq Yousef al-Masri, from the Oulel-Albab mosque in Brooklyn. ∞∞∞∞∞ SEE MORE ∞∞∞∞∞
