Mufti of Jerusalem says remarks about killing Jews taken out of context

Uh huh.  Mufti Mohammed Hussein quoted the hadith in which Muslims are told to kill every Jew, and that the rocks and trees will cry out to let Muslims know there is a Jew hiding behind them.  Here is the complete hadith;

   "The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim). From Sahih  Muslim, 41-6985

This hadith is accepted as strong, and as such carries much weight as to what Muslims are required to do, as opposed to a suggestion.  The Mufti knows this, yet claims that he is not calling for the killing of Jews.  His statement goes against accepted Islamic legal tradition, as such it must be seen as taqiyya, and words for a Western audience only.  

Israels complaint is valid, and should be seen as what it is; a call for genocide.  No one will, of course, and the march towards oblivion continues.

Israeli leader condemns Palestinian Muslim cleric

JERUSALEM (AP) — The Palestinians' top Muslim cleric faced sharp Israeli criticism Sunday for a speech in which he quoted a religious text that includes passages about killing Jews in an end-of-days struggle.
Mufti Mohammed Hussein's comments came at a political gathering of supporters of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. He said his remarks were taken out of context and that he didn't incite people to kill Jews. But by speaking at the venue, Hussein appeared to be linking the battle to the conflict with Israel.
"The hour of resurrection will not come until you fight the Jews," Hussein told the gathering, citing a hadith, or saying attributed to the Prophet Muhammad. "The Jews will hide behind stones and trees. But the trees and the stones will call: oh Muslim, oh servant of God, there is a Jew hiding behind me so come and kill him."
(...)The mufti delivered his three-minute speech on Jan. 7 in an Arab neighborhood of east Jerusalem during celebrations of the 47th anniversary of the Palestinian movement Fatah, said Itamar Marcus of Palestine Media Watch, an Israeli watchdog group that tracks incitement.
Marcus' group posted excerpts of the speech on YouTube last week. The comments drew angry reactions from Israelis on Sunday.
"We're talking about a heinous offense that all nations of the world must condemn," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement sent to reporters by text message. He asked the Israeli attorney general to launch an investigation.
It is unclear what authority Israel would have since Hussein is appointed to his position by the Palestinian president. There was no immediate comment from Abbas' office.
Hussein, who is based in Jerusalem, said his comments were taken out of context.
"I was speaking about the final signs of the day of resurrection," Hussein said. "I did not incite, and I did not call for killing. We are not, at present, at the end of days."
But when those end days arrive, then it will be acceptable to listen to the stones and trees, and kill Jews, right Hussein?
