A French Muslim cleric said in a recent sermon that Muslims can hold allegiance only to the Koran, likening it to a constitution superior to the French Constitution and an anthem greater than national anthem of France.
“The book of Allah is our anthem, our identity. It has been said that the Quran is our constitution,” French Imam Mohamed Khattabi said in a Jan. 1 sermon, excerpts of which were translated this week by the Middle East Media Research Institute.
The same cleric previously said he dreamed Muslims would one day rule France, Britain, Germany and Belgium. That sermon was delivered just hours before the November Islamic State-linked Paris attacks, where 130 people were killed.
In his New Year’s Day sermon, Khattabi tried to answer those in France who have criticized Muslim immigrants who never learned the words of the French national anthem, “La Marseillaise.”
“The Muslims would like to recite the first verse of the Koran. … ‘La Marseillaise’ was composed by a mere mortal, whereas the Koran was composed by God — sorry conveyed, not composed, by God,” he told the Montpellier congregation.
