The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has again taken to task an Islamic preacher in Florida who recently advocated numerous antisemitic conspiracy theories during a religious service.

Imam Fadi Kablawi gave a Friday sermon on Jan. 26 at Masjid As-Sunna An-Nabawiyyah in North Miami, Fla., that was streamed online. He proclaimed that “Hamas is going to finish Israel, and they are going to start going to Europe and America. It is going to take a long time, digging a tunnel under the Atlantic Ocean, dude.”

“Zionism is the problem of the world. Take it from me. Go back and read their history, learn their history,” said Kablawi, according to MEMRI. “Who did assassinations all over the world? Who blew up buildings all over the world? Who blew up American ships? Who did? Hamas or the Mossad? Who blew up [the World Trade Center] on 9/11?”

The imam also described Israel as “enemies of human beings,” warning: “If they do it to the Palestinians in Gaza, they will do it to you, if they need to.”

At the same time, Kablawi insulted Americans in general, calling them “naive”—that they “have no clue.”

“All they are worried about is the Super Bowl,” he said mockingly.
