Florida dentist and imam sparks horror with sermon calling Jews ‘brothers of apes,’ begging Allah to ‘annihilate’ them

A Florida dentist is facing urgent calls to have his license suspended after going viral with a vile sermon calling Israel’s military “worse than the Nazis” — and begging Allah to “annihilate” the Jews.

Dr. Fadi Kablawi, who is also a Miami imam, sparked horror with the sermon in which he called on Allah to “annihilate the brothers of apes and pigs,” according to a translation by MEMRI TV, the media arm of the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“I apologized to the Nazis last week, because these people have been proven to be worse than the Nazis,” Kablawi said in English of Israel’s army.

Kablawi, who owns a dental practice in Florida, then bizarrely accuses Israel of stealing organs and “skin” off people, including in Haiti.

“All that because there is no God for these people,” he said in the video shared Monday — adding, apparently without irony: “We don’t spread propaganda.”

Kablawi then makes his most antisemitic slurs in a prayer, according to the translation by MEMRI TV.

“Oh Allah, support our oppressed brothers in Palestine. Oh Allah, annihilate the tyrannical Jews. Oh Allah, annihilate them, for they are no match for you,” Kablawi says, according to the translation.

“Oh Allah, annihilate the brothers of apes and pigs. Oh Allah, demonstrate upon them the wonders of your might. … Oh Allah, disperse them and rend them asunder.”

The footage quickly sparked outrage, with calls for a criminal investigation as well as for the dentist to be barred from working on unsuspecting patients.

“Muslim terrorists are in our midst and one is practicing dentistry,” Florida state Rep. Randy Fine seethed in a letter Monday to Florida’s board of dentistry, according to Fox News.

“North Miami, where dentist Kablawi practices, contains many Jewish residents, none of whom could be considered safe in Imam Kablawi’s dental chair, where he could personally implement what he is asking Allah to do,” Fine wrote.

“I call on you to immediately suspend Dr. Kablawi’s license and commence a thorough investigation into his practice. The lives of some of Florida’s Jews could hang in the balance.”

Fine cited other instances of Kablawi’s antisemitism in the letter, noting that during a March 8 sermon, Kablawi said, “Oh Allah, bring annihilation upon the accursed Zionists.”

“I call on you to immediately suspend Dr. Kablawi’s license and commence a thorough investigation into his practice. The lives of some of Florida’s Jews could hang in the balance.”

A month after the Oct. 7 attack on the Jewish state, Kablawi stated in a sermon, “Oh Allah, show us the black days that you inflict upon the Jews,” Fine noted.

In a statement to NBC 6, the dentist repeated some of his comments — while defending them as prayer and not a call for violence.

“Suddenly they’re so offended that I’m making a prayer, this is how low it is,” Kablawi said.

“It was a prayer, I was asking God to deal not with the Jews, to deal with the atrocities of the tyrannical Jews,” he said.

“I wasn’t calling for anyone to harm anybody, I was making a pure prayer against tyrannical criminals who are killing my people,” he claimed.

“To target my license that I worked hard for and kept in good standing for 20 years, it’s an under-the-belt shot and it’s unethical.”
