Reader comment on item: A "Pig" Incident in Jerusalem

Submitted by Avinoam Ben Dor (Israel), Jul 30, 2015 at 01:58

As a central anti-Jewish motif, the Quran decrees an eternal curse upon the Jews (Quran 2:061, 3:112) for slaying the prophets and transgressing against the will of Allah. This motif is coupled to Quranic verses 5:060 and 5:078, which describes the Jews' transformation into apes and swine

The Jews' ultimate sin and punishment: they are the devil's minions (4:060) cursed by Allah, their faces will be obliterated (4:047), and if they do not accept the true faith of Islam – the Jews who understand their faith become Muslims (3:113) – they will be made into apes (2:065/7:166), or apes and swine (5:060), and burn in the Hell fires (4:055, 5:029, 98:006 and 58:014-019).

2:065

And certainly you have known those among you who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so We said to them: Be (as) apes, despised and hated.

7:166

Therefore when they revoltingly persisted in what they had been forbidden, We said to them: Be (as) apes, despised and hated.

5:060

Say: Shall I inform you of (him who is) worse than this in retribution from Allah? (Worse is he) whom Allah has cursed and brought His wrath upon, and of whom He made apes and swine, and he who served the Shaitan; these are worse in place and more erring from the straight path.

Vol. 4, Bk. 52, no. 176: Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar:

Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "

Vol. 4, Bk. 52, no. 177: Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

The above inciting and hateful verses from the Koran and Hadith are being blasted over loud speakers evry Friday by the imams in Israeli mosques and all over the Muslim world so I see no problem if sometimes they get back a bit of what they hand out.

You should have mentioned this in your article.
