Barry says:

Exterminate Islam, before Islam exterminates you.

When Baruch Goldstein shot up a mosque every American Jewish organization immediately and explicitly condemned him.

Every Muslim who does not directly condemn this act of shariyya and the vile Palestinian people for the atmosphere of Islam which they have created, is personally responsible for every crime of Jihad.
