MEMRI TV COMPILATION – Dearborn And Detroit Imams And Protests Prior To And Following October 7 Hamas Attack: 


"Dearborn Is 'A City Of Resistance" 

"President Biden Is 'A Cancer In Our Country" 

"October 7 Is 'One Of The Days Of God"

"Dismantl[e] The Terrorist Racist State Of Israel" 

"Start Normalizing Jihad"

'Warmest Congratulations To Our Very Special Leader Imam [Iranian Supreme Leader Ali] Khamenei' For October 7 Attack"

"The Jews 'Control People's Resources Through Tricks And Deception'


Since October 7, 2023, when Hamas invaded southern Israel, murdered over 1,200 people, and took nearly 250 hostage, the MEMRI research team that monitors imams' sermons in mosques in the U.S. as well as speeches and statements by U.S. Muslim leaders and organizations has been finding, and exposing, some very disturbing content emanating from the state of Michigan – particularly from Dearborn and Detroit.


These sermons and statements reflect the sentiment we have found in our broader monitoring of U.S. Sunni and Shi'ite imams from major mosques and leading organizations, as well as by individuals affiliated with universities. They include antisemitic and pro-Hamas statements, expressions of support for the October 7 attacks and calls for further violence, denial of the atrocities perpetrated by Hamas, and anti-Israel and anti-U.S. statements.


It is notable that in our extensive monitoring of sermons and statements from this region, or indeed from across the U.S., our researchers have not found a single sermon denouncing Hamas or the October 7 attacks.
