During Friday prayer in the Al Nusra mosque in Berlin on July 11, Danish imam Abu Bilal Ismail urged listeners to kill Zionist Jews, Die Welt reports.

In a Youtube video clip of the sermon to which English subtitles have been added, the imam is filmed lashing out at Israelis and eventually saying that all Jews should be killed.

"Count them and kill them to the very last one. Don't spare a single one of them. Make them suffer terribily," the subtitles read.

Imam denies
When BT asked Ismail, he rejected that he had encouraged killing all Jews.

"I don't think all Jews must die. Only the Jews that have killed people in Gaza. I have asked God to destroy the Jews that kill us. It's not all Jews, because I know Jews that are good to us. I never meant all Jews."

Ismail is a regular speaker at the Grimhøj Mosque in Aarhus. He has previously been accused of encouraging young Muslims to travel to Syria and fight in the civil war.
