JEWISH GROUPS DISAPPOINTED CHARGES WERE NOT LAID AGAINST TWO IMAMS

Summary: 

Jewish groups are disappointed that the Crown will not bring charges against two imams who made anti-Semitic statements, including a call for the death of Jews, in a Montreal mosque, due to the amount of time that’s passed. The men gave the contentious sermons at the Al-Andalous Islamic Centre in the St-Laurent borough of Montreal in 2014. Both the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA) and B’nai Brith Canada filed complaints against the men with Montreal police, charging that they had incited hatred and violence against Jews.

The sermons came to the public’s attention in February of this year, when YouTube videos of the talks were brought to light by some Toronto-based investigative journalists who translated them.
