Sweden: You Muslims may need our support, but we need your Jihad

Ahmed Rami, a Morrocan who gained political asylum in Sweden, has already served six months in prison for incitement against Jews. His website is host to anti-Jewish rhetoric, though Swedish prosecutors could not prove his responsibility for the site.

In a recent interview on Al-Manar, Rami quotes Jan Myrdal, a Swedish author, as saying: 'You Muslims may need our support, but we need your Jihad. Otherwise, whom will we support?'

Rami was interviewed by the European Jewish Press, and in that interview Rami expressed support for Ahmadinejad, who had called to "wipe Israel off the map".

Rami said he supports the Iranian leader’s ideas but would have formulated it in “a more diplomatic way”.

"I do not have problems with the Swedish justice but rather with the Jews," he said. "I think Judaism is criminal and racist. You are the new Nazis.”

Rami also said that he supported Osama Bin Laden adding that, "Bin Laden made a big mistake by attacking America. I would have personally attacked Tel Aviv because the American people are innocent, they are just victims of the Jews."

His words echo similar comments made in an interview broadcast on 30 September on the Hezbollah TV station Al-Manar.

In the interview he stated that "Judaism is not a religion and that it is a criminal and dangerous mafia."

He also said that he is “fighting for freedom of speech for everybody in Sweden”.

“The Koran says that our battle is with the Jews. Zionism is not mentioned in the Koran. Our war is against the Jews,” he added.
