In December 2016, the Dar al-Arkam mosque in Montreal hosted Jordanian preacher Muhammad ibn Musa Al Nasr, who, during his sermon, referred to the “disease of the Jews” and quoted a hadith inciting Muslims to kill Jews. Clearly unacceptable.
In July, CIJA sent the letter below to the mosque. They have not responded, nor to our knowledge have they condemned the hateful views of Al Nasr, nor have they apologized for providing a platform to spread antisemitism in Canada. We noticed that after our request they removed the hateful video from their YouTube channel which we view as an acknowledgment that the content is antisemitic and inappropriate.
