#Myjihad:TUNISIA: Imam calls for the sterilization of all Jewish women

BNI//

As soon as the radical Islamists took control of Tunisia last year, they attacked the one remaining synagogue in Tunis. Now this. During a televised broadcast of Islamic Jummah prayers at the end of November, a prominent Tunisian imam called for the “sterilization” of Jewish women because, according to him, “God wants to destroy this sprinkling of Jews.”

The Blaze (h/t liz) What’s more, his anti-Semitic sermon was delivered on a channel eerily dubbed “Hannibal TV.”

Now, the minority rights group, The Tunisian Association to Support Minorities, is suing Sheikh Ahmad Al-Suhayli for incitement.

Qais El-Beltagi, a lawyer representing the prosecution, maintains that the imam violated Tunisia’s 2011 decree which criminalizes “calls to hatred between races and religions, and the population.” He added that article 52 of the decree calls for “a prison term of between one and three years and a fine ranging from 500 to 1,000 euros” for hate-filled rhetoric. According to the attorney, Hannibal TV is exempt from prosecution because the sermon was broadcast live, thus the content was not able to be edited.

 Since the Arab Spring and subsequent overthrow of Tunisian president Zine el Abidine ben Ali, this is the fourth reported incitement against the country’s 2,000-member Jewish community.

The Jewish Community of Tunisia recently expressed its outrage over anti-Semitic comments made by Islamist groups that have emerged in the North African country in the wake of the revolution that toppled long-time dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali. During a visit to Tunisia, Ismail Haniyeh, the Gaza-based leader of Hamas, the Palestinian militant group, was greeted at the airport by a crowd that chanted such slogans as “kick the Jews — it’s our religious duty,” “expel the Jews — it’s our religious duty,” and “kill the Jews — it’s our religious duty.”
