Time to make tabula rasa:
- Adulterous woman should be punished byÂ getting “whipped to death.”
- “The moneyÂ of the faithfulÂ should not beÂ placedÂ in banks, since that would benefit theÂ Jews.”
MohamedÂ Hammami, a Tunisian imam,Â is accusedÂ of giving anti-semitic sermons and advocating the killing of adulterous women.Â The French Interior Minister, ClaudeÂ Gueant, initiated eviction charges against Hammami for “violent anti-semitic utterances.”Â A “deportation committee” will deliver its verdict on Hammami’s deporatation on February 7th.
Hammami is the imam of Tabligh Omar mosque on Jean-Pierre Timbaud Street, located in the 11thÂ district of Paris, France.
Hammami is believed to have delivered an anti-semitic sermon in which he said, “The moneyÂ of those who are faithfulÂ should not beÂ placedÂ in banks, since that would benefit theÂ Jews.” He is also believed to have said that adulterous woman should be punished byÂ getting “whipped to death.”
The Tabligh OmarÂ mosque was founded by Hammami and belongs to theÂ Tabligh Jamaat movement â€“ a MuslimÂ missionary movement that aims to revive the faith of Muslims through a literal interpretation of the Qur’an. TheÂ movement is accused of promoting terrorism. Several French jihadists are thought to attend Hammami’s mosque.
Hammami was born in 1935Â andÂ moved to FranceÂ in the 1960s. He may soon becomeÂ theÂ 35thÂ imam toÂ get expelled from French territories in the last 10 years.Â Since September 11, 2001, French authorities have put imams’ sermons under closer surveillance.
