East London Advertiser: Fury at East London mosque inviting Mecca imam

al-Sudais sermon in Mecca:
“Yesterday’s Jews are evil predecessors and today’s Jews are worse successors…They are…the worst of mankind. Allaah cursed them and cast His wrath upon them. He turned some of them to monkeys and pigs and worshippers of creatures… History of Jews is full of deception, trickery, rebellion, oppression, evil and corruption. They always seek to cause mischief on the earth and Allaah loves not the mischief-makers…They always think of betrayal and trick; and injustice and aggression run in their veins. They want only corruption and harming others.”

Daily Telegraph reports: “In Mecca two years ago, al Sudais described Jews as ‘scum of the earth,’ ‘rats of the world’ and ‘monkeys and pigs who should be annihilated’”

BBC reports: “Sheikh Abdur-Rahman Al-Sudais, Imam, Ka’ba, Mecca, Saudi Arabia: The history of Islam is the best testament to how different communities can live together in peace and harmony. Muslims must exemplify the true image of Islam in their interaction with other communities.”
– “John Ware: Sheikh Sudais is a leading Imam from the great mosque in Mecca, Islam’s holiest city.”
– “He had one voice for his Western audience – another for his followers in Saudi. Sheikh Abdur-Rahman Al-Sudais: The worst … of the enemies of Islam are those… whom he… made monkeys and pigs, the aggressive Jews and oppressive Zionists and those that follow them: the callers of the trinity and the cross worshippers… those influenced by the rottenness of their ideas, and the poison of their cultures the followers of secularism… How can we talk sweetly when the Hindus and the idol worshippers indulge in their overwhelming hatred against our brothers… in Muslim Kashmir…”
– “John Ware: The East London mosque received $1m from the Saudis towards their new centre. The mosque’s links to Saudi go back many years.”
