Do Justin Trudeau and Melanie Joly think that although he rails at Zionists and America, Shafiq Hudda is a loyal citizen of the Canadian state, and teaches his followers to be also? They may be in for a surprise.
“Toronto Quds Day Rally – Sheikh Shafiq Hudda: Israel and the American Empire Will Be Eradicated,” MEMRI, June 9, 2018:
Speaking at the Toronto Quds Day rally, held on June 9, Sheikh Shafiq Hudda, director of the Islamic Humanitarian Service in Kitchener, Ontario, said that a day will come when we will see “the eradication of the unjust powers, such as the American empire, such as the Israeli Zionists.” He challenged the Israeli army to enter Gaza and “fight like men, not cowards,” saying: “You will leave in body bags.”
Sheikh Shafiq Hudda: …”I am praying for a day to come in our lifetime, where we won’t need the Al-Quds rally because Palestine will be free. Oppression will be eradicated, injustice will end, that’s the day we pray for. So we don’t have to meet every Saturday in the holy month of Ramadan. This is our prayer to the almighty creator, whether you call him God or Allah. You call him Jehovah or whatever name you want to call him. We pray to the creator and to the almighty, a day will come when we see justice throughout the world. The eradication of the unjust powers such as the American empire, such as the Israeli Zionists. And the same way that we saw the British Empire wither away, the sun never set on it… the sun sets on it. We will see a day coming inshallah, God willing in our lifetime, where this empire, the Zionist empire, the American empire will be down in the dustbins of history inshallah God willing.”
