Al Aqsa mosque in North Philly has apologized for a series of anti-Semitic sermons delivered by a guest imam in recent months

In a reference to the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre, which resulted in hundreds of mostly Palestinians and Lebanese Shiites being killed at two Beirut-area refugee camps, Abouhatab said that Begin “would stand next to a pregnant woman, and would make bets whether it is a boy or a girl. He would make bets, while the woman was still alive! Then he would slit her belly open, while she was still alive, to see whether it is a boy or a girl. Just like that.” The Israeli Defense Forces had invaded Lebanon earlier that year and allied themselves with the Lebanese Christian Phalangist militia, which carried out the massacre.
