Teacher of blood libel at Al-Aqsa Mosque: It was "advice" to the Jews to "save them" from "the fire of Hell"


Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi teaches Islam twice a week in the Al-Aqsa Mosque:
     "The things we see in the story of Adam [in the Quran] are the key to interpret the story of the Children of Israel... In the story of Adam, the Children of Israel are parallel to the Devil [Iblis] in Heaven. The Children of Israel symbolize the Devil in Heaven. We saw Adam and the entrance of Adam into the Garden of Eden. Adam symbolizes the nation of the Prophet Muhammad... I remind you, our class is being recorded. We do not talk about the Children of Israel because we hate the Children of Israel. Rather the opposite. It is the Children of Israel who hate all the nations. But we [Muslims] don’t hate anyone, praise Allah. It is not in our hearts. We, the nation of Muhammad - He [Allah] did not put hatred of other nations in our hearts. When we talk about religious matters, and when we talk about the Children of Israel, we talk about them because we are trying to save them from the punishment they inflict upon themselves in the fire of Hell. We give advice in order to save the person we are advising, whoever he may be, whether Jew or Christian or Buddhist, or of any religion. What is our goal? To save him from the fire of Hell. To get him into the Garden of Eden... If you give advice to a Jew, he immediately says: You’re inciting to racism, you’re an Antisemite. Immediately. It has become a cliché for them, a fixed statement, a cliché, which they stick on every person who gives them advice... There is no doubt that we don’t deny that the Children of Israel cause great damage to all people in the world. We don’t deny that. But at the same time, when you return to the essence of the verses of the Quran, and when you draw closer to Allah, you pity these people, you feel sorry for them."
