An imam in Berlin has been filmed praying for the annihilation of the Jews, asking Allah "not to spare a single one of them" during a sermon at a mosque.

MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, released the video of Sheik Abu Bilal Ismail giving his Friday sermon at the Al-Nur Mosque on Friday on it MEMRI TV channel. MEMRI provided subtitles for the sermon in Arabic.

After accusing Arab leaders of conspiring against the people of Gaza, which he praised as "the land of Jihad (holy war)," he said the Gazans were facing "the strongest war machine, the Zionist Jews, these criminals, these slayers of prophets, those who shed blood, those who kill children, those who turn women into widows."

The film clip then jumps to another part of his sermon. "Oh Allah, destroy the Zionist Jews. They are no challenge for you," the subtitles read. "Count them and kill them to the very last one. Don't spare a single one of them. Shake the ground beneath their feet. Make them suffer terribly."
