October 14, 2019 Ron Banerj posted a video featuring Haashim Atangana Kamena preaching on the same day at Toronto’s Dundas Square. Here are excerpts from from Kamena’s statements:
Islam is the truth, because the media is controlled by the Jews. The Jews, the very least, they control the media and they [the Jews] are doing everything possible to demonize Islam, right? So because they are doing everything possible to demonize Islam, they [the Jews] want to make people think that Islam is all about terrorism and things like that… [See] what’s is going on with the media. The media is controlled by the Jews, right? Thus, we don’t have any problems with the Jews, because at one time the Jews were the chosen people, and even the Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is prophesied in the Torah and the Jews they know this. The Jews they knew that the Prophet Mohammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is prophesied in the Torah… The Europeans cannot live with that. Palestine, they [European Jews] are coming here to Palestine, they’re kicking out the people who are originally there for centuries… They take their right of the Palestinians. They don’t want the Palestinians to live a good life so they kicked them off their land, which is sad… So you know I’m staying here to support my brothers in Palestine and my brothers who are being oppressed in places like Burma, because there’s so much oppression in the world, Muslims are being prosecuted… Islam is going to win, so you need to understand that Islam is the solution for all the problems that America has.
Here are excerpts from Haashim Atangana Kamena’s statements in a video that was posted on YouTube a few years ago:
People [have] to be open-minded and not to believe what you hear in the media about Islam… Here in Toronto we have newspapers like Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, 24 Hours, all these newspapers that just designed to contaminate the minds of people… and brainwash the minds of people. And don’t believe what you hear… anything that is good is going to be somehow slandered… [In] the same way, the Jews, they slandered Mary, the mother of Jesus, by saying that she committed fornication… [In] the same way Islam is being slandered… Because it always gonna be a tyrannical system in every generation… that going to be set up in order to enslave people… Today we have the same thing. Anything that is contradiction of monotheism the their eyes, they don’t want us [inaudible] nothing good. So as Muslims we have to be able to handle these obstacles, because Satanic ideas and Satanic principles are becoming normal in our society. We have to be able to show the people that Satanic ideas and Satanic principles have no place in our society by calling people to monotheism, calling people to the oneness of God, because this is the solution. Islam is the solution for everything, to all the problem I can think of… We need to convey the message of Islam all over the world and we have to be ready to sacrifice ourselves even if it means to die for this deen [religion of Islam], because this is what the companions [of Mohammad] did… We have to do the same, because we have to remember that this life is temporary and we have to focus more on the hereafter.
