Imam Curses Christians and Jews at Trump Interfaith Event |: Source: Allah, Keep us From the Path Taken by Christians and Jews! | Gates of Vienna
During every Friday prayer service in every mosque, Sura 1 of the Koran is recited. The meaning of what is said — that Jews incurred the wrath of Allah, and that Christians went astray — is supported by all authoritative tafsirs on the Koran. And every Muslim who pays any attention to his religion understands what it means.
Last Saturday, at a National Prayer Service in Washington D.C. attended by President Donald Trump , an imam named Mohamed Magid recited Sura 1, calling on his god to show special disfavor to Jews and Christians. As it happens, Mr. Magid is a known Muslim Brotherhood operative.
The man who recited Sura 1 was not Mohamed Magid, who spoke just before him.
