Peace accords are "useless garbage," Canadian imam Sharif Mady insisted earlier this month - even with rival Muslim nations. 

"The Prophet Muhammad said that there would be a peace agreement between the Muslims and the Byzantines, which would be respected, and that the [Muslims] would fight another enemy," he began, in a sermon given in Alberta. His comments were translated into English by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

"Who is this other enemy? It is Iran and its filthy lackeys and dogs, like Russia, China, and those who support them, as well as the secular dogs in the Arab world, like the children of [UAE ruler] Zayed, and that Jewish Zionist Al-Sisi, as well as that secular traitor [Libyan leader Khalifa] Haftar, together with all these traitors."

"They will all come to an end," he continued. "Thanks to this peace agreement, they will all vanish from the face of the Earth. When? Hopefully, this will happen soon."

The imam continued with a vow to regain Jerusalem "through blood." 

"Our Jerusalem, the place of our Prophet's nocturnal journey, will only be regained through blood," he said. "Peace accords, Sykes-Picot, and all these sort of things are useless garbage."

"How can you make peace while the other side uses weapons?" he added. "You are talking about peace, while he is killing?! You are talking about peace, while he has F-16s, tanks, and rockets. So what kind of peace is this?"
