Italy expels imam for preaching hatred against Jews
by Josephine Mckenna
Italian officials on Tuesday (Aug. 5) moved to expel a Moroccan imam who was caught on video inciting violence against Jews during Israel's military offensive in Gaza.
Interior Minister Angelino Alfano said he had ordered the imam, Raoudi Aldelbar, to be expelled "for seriously disturbing the peace, endangering national security and religious discrimination."
The imam was filmed during a Friday sermon in a mosque near Venice last month calling for Jews to be killed "one by one," according to the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute, which published the video on its website.
