Imams in Houston and NJ call on Muslims to “kill all the Jews”– and the media says nothing

Last Friday, an imam in Texas called on Muslims to “kill all the Jews.”

Have you heard about this?  Of course not.  But why not?  Isn’t it newsworthy that U.S.-based Muslim leaders explicitly preach terrorism against Jews?  Doesn’t that deserve attention?  Of course it does.

So why is no one is covering it?

Sheikh Raed Saleh Al-Rousan,  the founder of the Tajweed Institute’s Houston branch, first proclaimed that the Jews “killed the Prophets and the Messengers of Allah,” and then quoted from a Quranic hadith calling for the murder of all Jews.  He then encouraged Muslims to kill Jews in Israel, saying “The hour (Judgment Day) will not start until Muslims fight the Jews there, in Palestine.”

You can listen to this hate-filled screed here:

And, the same day, Imam Aymen Elkasaby, of the Islamic Center of Jersey City in New Jersey, denounced Jews as “apes and pigs” and prayed for “Allah [to] Count them [Jews] one by one, and kill them down to the very last one. Do not leave a single one on the face of the Earth.”  Excerpts of the transcript of this sermon can be found here.

Why have American Islamic groups failed to condemn this hate speech?  And why have the media been silent?
