After an asylum seeker was caught preaching to mosque-goers to “burn” infidels alive for insulting Islam, he stood before the court and invoked his religious right to preach the message. However, as soon as a patriotic judge heard his demand, he issued 2 brilliant words that turned the imam’s grin into a look of sheer horror.

Since liberals have forced European nations to resettle millions of mostly Muslim migrants, the fundamentals of Islam are spreading across the West, threatening to eradicate our exceptional liberties, benevolent values, and progressive culture. Islam’s aggressive growth is paving the way for Sharia law, which denies religious minorities basic human rights.

In October 2016, Swiss authorities arrested an Ethiopian Muslim cleric at the An’Nur mosque in Winterthur for repeatedly preaching sermons encouraging followers to obey the violent verses of the Quran. While distributing images of gory Sharia executions of infidels, the unnamed asylum-seeking imam, who had only been in Switzerland for a few months, urged congregants to kill the unbelievers — namely, those who refuse to obey the Quran.

During his trial, the imam hoped he could invoke his civil right to preach the violent commands, which are found verbatim in the Quran, using Switzerland’s freedoms and laws against his gracious host country. Unfortunately, he learned an appropriately brutal lesson in Western law.

According to Swiss Info, the judge for the district court in Zurich informed the immigrant cleric that he would absolutely have the right to invoke violence against non-Muslims — after serving an 18-month suspended prison sentence and being deported to Ethiopia. With two words, “prison” and “deportation,” the honorable judge sided with the prosecution, ruling that the Muslim cleric can spout the verses of the Quran from a pulpit in his own country, where the authorities may deal with him under their nation’s laws.

“His religious views represent a danger to the public,” the prosecution told the court. But the defendent’s lawyer painted a different picture, saying: “He was merely an unsuspecting asylum seeker who had only been in Switzerland for three months. He is no fanatical Muslim.”

Incredibly, along with the judge, the prosecution bucked political correctness to acknowledge that the imam is not a “fanatical Muslim” extremist but a scholarly imam who is merely calling for fellow Muslims to practice Islam as Allah commands. The main point of contention revolved around the cleric’s urging of congregants to burn self-proclaimed Muslims who are not devoutly immersing themselves into worship.

The cleric’s sermons were reported as containing controversial messages and calls to violence. However, the specific invocation of burning those who disobey the Quran’s mandates is not only justified in Islamic texts but was sanctioned by the prophet Muhammad himself.

Sahih Bukhari (11:626) – “The Prophet said, ‘No prayer is harder for the hypocrites than the Fajr and the ‘Isha’ prayers and if they knew the reward for these prayers at their respective times, they would certainly present themselves (in the mosques) even if they had to crawl.’ The Prophet added, ‘Certainly I decided to order the Mu’adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses.‘”

Similarly, in 627 A.D., Muhammad ordered his followers to set fire to all the domiciles of the al-Mustalaq tribe while the men, women, and children were still inside. The following year, the bloodthirsty prophet told one of his soldiers to build a fire on a Jewish captive’s chest in order to torture the man into revealing where he had hidden his tribe’s treasure. In 630, Muhammad had his men torch a building in Tabuk in which a group of Byzantines had gathered.

Although Muhammad preferred arson while conquering his non-Muslim foes, who were often peaceful tribes that refused to convert, the “Messenger of Allah” also used the threat of a fiery death to force lukewarm Muslims to obey the Quran, just like the Ethiopian cleric suggested.

Sunan Ibn Majah (No. 791) – It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said: “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘I was thinking of commanding that the call to prayer be given, then I would tell a man to lead the people in prayer, then I would go out with some other men carrying bundles of wood, and go to people who do not attend the prayer, and burn their houses down around them.’”

The Swiss judge should be applauded, but it will take many more responses like his to save Europe from decades of liberal policy. Hopefully, judicial officials across the West will continue to rise up against the destruction of their culture before it’s too late.
