Egyptian Minister Repeats Claim That Jews Created ISIS


An editorial cartoon featured in the Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm on February 5, 2015, depicts the Jewish menorah as part of the Arabic word for ISIS (Daish).

During a press confess in Cairo welcoming the Mufti of Lebanon on February 5, the Egyptian Minister of Islamic Endowment, Mohamed Mokhtar Gomaa, repeated the conspiratorial claim that ISIS not only serves Israeli interests, but that its leader, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, was raised by Jews and Israelis.

When asked about the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)’s barbaric execution of Jordanian pilot Muaz Kasasbeh, Gomaa said, “There were statements made by Israel that ISIS is protection for Israeli national security because it is the sword that will cut and tear apart the region’s states. Furthermore, reports that Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi was raised by Jews and Israelis confirm the size of the conspiracy against the region [Islam].”

ADL has previously documented the growth of this con­spir­acy, sug­gest­ing that ISIS was cre­ated by the Jews and Zion­ists to tear Islam apart.

“Khaiber” Writer: Now Is The Time to Expose The Jews

An interview with Yusri Al-Jindy, the writer of “Khaiber,” an upcoming television series com­mem­o­rat­ing the geno­cide of Jews in Ara­bia, reveals both the anti-Semitic and political agenda behind the production.

In an interview with Al-Masry Al-Youm, an Egypt-based daily newspaper, on January 16, Al-Jindy said, “The goal of the series is to expose the naked truth about the Jews and stress that they cannot be trusted.”

Commenting on the recent changes in the region, Al-Jindy described the importance of recognizing the parallels between “the era of the Khaiber battle” and “contemporary times.”

Al-Jindy also seemed to suggest that the series will have a global effect. “I think it is time to expose them [the Jews] even in America itself. I am confident that the United States will realize that it paid a high price for supporting them.”

Predicting that he will be accused of anti-Semitism after the series airs, Al-Jindy added, “The charge of anti-Semitism is an outdated trend, and in fact it is a lie that Jews use against anyone who tries to expose their naked truth and their conspiracies.”

“They have already accused me of anti-Semitism when I presented The Wandering Jew,” Al-Jindy added. “Therefore, I don’t care for the accusation.” Al-Jindy’s play, The Wandering Jew about the 1967 war, was banned in Egypt in the 1980s. 

Various Arab media has reported the names of Syrian and Egyptian actors selected to for the series, which is set to start film­ing next month. Media reports also indicate that the show will be marketed to Turkey, Spain, France, Malaysia and various Arab countries.
