Imam Calls Coronavirus “Soldier of Allah,” Celebrates Non-Muslim Deaths

In a recent sermon (broadcast by Hamas TV) at the White Mosque in Gaza, Muslim Imam Jamil al-Mutawa called Coronavirus a “Soldier of Allah,” and celebrated the deaths of non-Muslims caused by Coronavirus, specifically praising Allah for deaths in California, China, Italy, and Iran. He noted that the streets of Israel are empty, while his mosque in Gaza is full. He went on to claim that Allah is protecting Muslims from Coronavirus, and he noted that there were no confirmed cases of the virus in Gaza. The next day, unfortunately, two cases of Coronavirus were confirmed in Gaza. Should Muslim speakers and scholars continue making claims about Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran based on the spread of a disease? David Wood (Acts 17 Apologetics) has some advice.


Here’s a link to the video on MEMRI TV:
