Radical Imam who referred to Jews as “monkeys and pigs” sentenced by Swedish court

A court in Helsingborg, Sweden has sentenced a 39-year-old radical Imam to fines and a conditional prison sentence after he referred to Jews as “the progeny of monkey’s and pigs”.

According to a report by Swedish broadcaster SVT, the radical Islamic leader made the comments during a hate-filled address he gave at a demonstration organized by the Swedish-Palestinian center in July of 2017.

The radical Imam acknowledged that his speech, which was delivered in Arabic, was full of vitriolic and hateful language directed against Jews and Israel. Despite the admission, he claimed that his orations were not directed at all Jews but were instead directed at the Jewish state of Israel.

 In a press release concerning the incident, the Swedish court wrote: “We think that the speech in its entirety states that the statement was about Jews with a view to their religion, not the regime or the military power.”

Following sentencing, Attorney Ylva Norling Jönsson told reporters, “The conditional sentence has a probation period of two years. If he commits new crimes during that time, the conditional sentence can be replaced by another sentence.”’
