A imam in Italy named Abd al-Barr al-Rawdhi, made a speech inciting violence against Jews, and the Italian government determined that he was a danger to society and that he will be deported. His remarks can be heard in a film of his speech:
The imam said:
What is happening in Gaza indicates that it is a delusion to think that Palestine can contain the Jews as well as its people. Palestine cannot contain theMuslims and the Jews…The Jews should not be in Palestine and they will not remain there. Any Jew living in Palestine is an illegitimate occupier… He is a target of Jihad, and will end up in the garbage bin of history. … The Jews will not thrive and will not live in safety because they are the slayers of the prophets…Wherever the Jews thrive, corruption abounds.
Interior Minister Angelino Alfano wrote:
It’s unacceptable to deliver a speech of clear anti-Semitic tenor, containing explicit incitement to religious violence and hate… For this reason, I have ordered his immediate expulsion from [Italian] national territory. My decision serves as a warning to all those who think that Italy is a place to preach hatred.
