A Brooklyn imam blasts Islamic leaders, saying they have turned religious Muslims into ticking time bombs who hate Christians, Jews, atheists and everyone else.

This is a remarkable speech given by Tarek Yousef al-Masri, a Brooklyn imam, on January 9, 2015, in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.

He explains that “Muslims of the religious sector” have become ticking time bombs, and he blasts the Islamic leaders who teach hate and violence.

“When a sinner repents, the first thing he does is make a bomb,” he states.

According to al-Masri, prominent religious figures in the Muslim world have distorted the Koran and instilled profound hatred in its followers. The result is that Muslims are contributing “nothing to human civilization,” he asserts with passion.

This video, presented by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), is 10 minutes long but well worth the time. If more imams would speak like this, perhaps they could set the foundation for peace.
