The Learned Islamic Professor said at some point, there were no Jews left in Jerusalem because Powerful King Nebuchadnezzar burned them. He said the "Crusadors burned, and even Hitler and Nzism burned them."
The Crusadors burned the Jews, he said. They rounded them up and killed them. He said they treated them this way because they believed the Jews harmed and killed Jesus.
The host Dr. Muhammad Khaled said to him "The history of the Jews has been black since down of time - Nebuchadnezzar burned them, the Crusaders burned them, and even Hitler and Nazism burned them. Is burning the only solution for the Jews?"
To which the Prof replied, "so it seems, so it seems".
