A local CBS station in Sacramento reports:
DAVIS (CBS13) — The Islamic Center of Davis is under fire after a translation of a sermon posted online said it called for the annihilation of Jews.

The Davis Imam’s two-hour long sermon is mostly in Arabic. According to a translation from the Middle East Media Research Institute, Ammar Shahin calls for the annihilation of Jews, and asks his higher power to liberate the Al Asqa mosque from their filth.

He’s referring to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem where tensions are high after the Israeli government installed metal detectors when a terrorist shot and killed two Israeli soldiers earlier this month. In English, the Imam is clear - praying for a day of judgment between Muslims and Jews.
To my knowledge, the CBS News network did not pick up this interesting story nor did it broadcast it on any national news outlet. Not one of the other MSM outlets did either.

Okay, it is a local story, so that might be the right call.

But for just a moment consider what would have happened if a Rabbi (anywhere) gave a 2-hour sermon suggesting that Israel "annihilate" Muslims. I'd bet dollars to donuts that the main steam media would jump on that story and push it hard.

"Islamophobia!" they'd scream.
"Incitement to violence," they'd proclaim.

Leftists would use the Rabbi's utterances as clear proof that their anti-Semitic and despicable BDS movement is justified. Because, of course, 1.6 billion Muslims are somehow oppressed by the 18 million Jews that inhabit this planet.

Funny how the double standard would work so predictably.
