Times of Israel report on antisemitic Sheikh
at Al-Aqsa Mosque, exposed by PMW

Headline: Temple Mount preacher: Jews make Passover bread with children’s blood

Sub-Headline: Sheikh on Waqf payroll says Jews also worship Satan, plotted 9/11 attacks, were killed by Nazis because they kidnapped kids to make matzah

An Islamic preacher on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem told congregants that the Nazis burned the Jews of Europe during the Holocaust because they had been kidnapping children to use their blood in Passover bread. He also claimed that Jews worship Satan, plotted the 9/11 attacks, and control the Freemasons who sacrifice their wives and children in secret ceremonies.

An English translation of the sermon, that was captured on video, was provided on Monday by Palestinian Media Watch, a non-governmental media monitoring organization

The Simon Wiesenthal Center sent a letter to Jordan’s King Abdullah and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urging them to "immediately take action against Sheikh Khaled al-Mughrabi, the religious teacher at the Al-Aqsa Mosque who is on the payroll of the Waqf [the PA religious authority], for using his class to promote the infamous blood libel screed that ‘explains’ why the Nazi Holocaust took place. The "Blood Libel" is a Christian medieval canard that accuses Jews of using the blood of children to make Passover matzah," the center said in a statement sent out to the press.

"The Temple Mount is a site of ultimate religious importance to Judaism and revered also by both Christianity and Islam. It should be an area that promotes peace, tolerance, and mutual understanding. However, the Al Aqsa Mosque has now been used to repeat horrific lies and legitimize genocide. Left unchallenged, the Sheik’s 'sermon' will only spawn more hatred and violence," the letter to Abdullah and Abbas read."
