Swiss public television SRF has obtained more footage of Swiss-based 'hate preacher' Abu Ramadan delivering controversial sermons – this time in Libya. Ramadan faces deportation, having claimed CHF600,000 ($620,000) in Swiss welfare payments whilst preaching such messages.
SRF and the Tages Anzeiger newspaper first reported on Ramadan's sermons in August, having seen video footage of his preaching at the Ar'Rahman mosque in canton Bern. "Oh Allah, I beg you to destroy the enemies of our religion. Destroy the Jews, Christians, Hindus, Russians and the Shia," he is heard saying.
Now, the same media have uncovered other sermons delivered in Tripoli in November 2016 in which he calls on God to "destroy" the enemies of Islam. "O God, grant your oppressed servants...victory in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Palestine, Egypt, Libya," he goes on to say.
