France has expelled a Tunisian imam accused of anti-Semitism and of calling his followers to “violent jihad” and violence against women, the interior ministry said.

Mohamed Hammami was subject to “expu

lsion from French territory. He has been deported to Tunisia, where he is a citizen,” the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

“In his sermons,” Hammami “encouraged violent jihad, made anti-Semitic remarks and justified the use of violence and corporal punishment against women,” added the ministry.

“These unacceptable, deliberate, repeated provocations and discrimination constitute a threat to French society and security.”

The imam’s son Hamadi Hammami told the AFP news agency he believed France’s DCRI domestic intelligence service had arrested his 77-year-old father in the streets before taking him to the airport.
