MEMRI has translated further anti-Semitic comments by Dr. Sallah Sultan, identified as the president of the American Center for Islamic Research, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on March 31. According to the translation:
Dr. Sallah Sultan: I want our brothers, and the whole world, to know what’s going on these days, during Passover. Read Dr. Naghuib Al-Kilani’s book, Blood for the Matzos of Zion. Every year, at this time, the Zionists kidnap several non-Muslims [sic]– Christians and others… By the way, this happened in a Jewish neighborhood in Damascus. They killed the French doctor, Toma, who used to treat the Jews and others for free, in order to spread Christianity. Even though he was their friend and they benefited from him the most, they took him on one of these holidays and slaughtered him, along with the nurse. Then they kneaded the matzos with the blood of Dr. Toma and his nurse. They do this every year.
The world must know these facts about the Zionist entity and its terrible corrupt creed. The world should know this.
The statement about using Christian blood for Matzoh (substitute for bread used during the Jewish holiday of Passover) is an example of what is called “blood libel”, the accusations that Jews use human blood in religious rituals. Historically these are accusations that the blood of Christian children is especially coveted and date back to the 1st Century.
Dr. Salah Sultan (aka Solah Sultan, Sallah Sultan) had left the U.S. following negative press reports in the U.S. media which led the authorities there to suspend his application for American citizenship and, as discussed in a previous post, relocated to Bahrain in 2007. Dr Sultan’s online resume indicates that he is or was a member of several important U.S. and European Muslim Brotherhood organizations including the European Council for Fatwa and Research, the Fiqh Council of North America, and the Islamic American University, closely associated with the Muslim American Society (MAS).This resume also expresses Dr. Soltan’s vision “To live happily. To die as a martyr.” Another previous post discussed some of Dr. Sultan statements including an appearance on Saudi TV where Dr. Sultan asserted that the US planned the 9/11 attacks as a pretext for terrorizing the world and praising Osama bin Laden confidante Abd Al-Majid Al-Zindani. A recent MEMRI TV report identified previously virulently anti-Semitic and anti-American comments made by Dr. Sultan on Egyptian TV in late December. Another post discussed a seminar featuring Dr. Sultan sponsored by the European Assembly for Imams and Spiritual Guides, closely associated with the Federation of Islamic Organizations In Europe (FIOE).
