Turkey’s Erdogan threatens to wipe out Jews
December 13, 2017 — WND.com reports: “President Obama praised Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as ‘a man of action’ and one of the five world leaders with whom he had the strongest bond. President Trump met with him at the White House last spring.
And certainly Erdogan has tried to portray himself to Western leaders as a pragmatist with whom they can work.
But at a convention of his ruling party Sunday, Erdogan invoked a Muslim hadith — a collection of the accounts and sayings of Muhammad — that made clear his view of Jews and the state of Israel, according to dissident Turkish journalist Abdullah Bozkurt, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reported.
‘Those who think they own Jerusalem better know that tomorrow they won’t be able to hide behind trees,’ Erdogan said, according to Bozkurt.
That statement essentially is an affirmation of a prophecy that all Jews will one day be destroyed, the journalist said.
Bozkurt explained Erdogan was making ‘a veiled threat of killing each and every Jew with a shocking reference to apocalyptic prophecy of tree story.’…” (This will never happen. Almighty God has stated: “…I will give them [Israel] an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off” – Isaiah 56:5. Everlasting means everlasting. God promised to Abraham in Genesis 22:17: “…in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the starts of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore…” “And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt; To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day. Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the Lord he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else. Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the Lord thy God giveth thee, for ever” – Deuteronomy 4:37 – 40.

Houston imam calls for Muslims to kill Jews
December 29, 2017 — Israel National News reports: “A Houston imam walked back a sermon in which he called for Muslims to kill Jews without specifically apologizing for his comments.
Imam Raed Saleh Al-Rousan of Houston’s Tajweed Institute earlier this month delivered what he called an ‘impassioned sermon,’ according to a statement about the speech issued on Wednesday.
‘I unequivocally affirm and uphold the dignity, sanctity and value of all human life, including – of course – people of the Jewish faith,’ Al-Rousan said in the statement. ‘I must also state in no uncertain terms that I am absolutely and completely opposed to and disgusted by all forms of terrorism, all terrorists, and I oppose anyone who would commit, call for, or threaten violence against civilians. This is why as a person of faith and a religious leader, that I am mortified that an impassioned sermon I gave in light of President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration is being seen as a call for the very things I despise.’
Al-Rousan had delivered his inflammatory speech on Dec. 8, two days after President Donald Trump announced the United States’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
‘Judgment Day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Muslims will kill the Jews,’ Al-Rousan said.
The imam also asserted in his speech that Jews ‘killed the Prophets and the Messengers of Allah.’ He accused Britain of bringing Jews to Palestine, adding ‘So do not tell me that Palestine is the country of the Jewish people. No!’…”
