Israel Condemns Hate Speech in Stuttgart

YERUSHALAYIM -

An Israeli diplomat in Germany has denounced the anti-Semitic speech of a Pakistani Moslem leader who is visiting the city of Stuttgart, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Israel’s deputy chief envoy in Germany, Avraham Nir-Feldklein, condemned on Monday Muhammad Raza Saqib Mustafai’s call for the annihilation of the Jewish people, in the city’s Al-Madina Mosque.

Nir-Feldklein told the Stuttgarter Nachrichten daily, “We hope that public funds do not in the future benefit organizations that provide a place that calls for hate not only against Jews and Israel, but also against other sections of the population.”

The Pakistan Welfare Society Stuttgart e.V. sponsored Mustafai’s visit. The Society receives tax breaks from the city because of its non-profit status and has control over the Al-Madina mosque.
