Muslim Brotherhood Marks Nakba Day With Contemptuous Anti-Israel Statements


Mohammad Badie’s article

As Palestinian supporters across the Middle East were demonstrating in commemoration of the nakba, the Arabic term meaning ‘catastrophe’ used to refer to Israel’s establishment in 1948, the Muslim Brotherhood and its General Guide Mohammad Badie issued statements to their followers laced with contempt for Israel and Jews.

In a commemorative statement on its English-language website, Israel is described by the Brotherhood as a “hostile terrorist racist expansionist monstrosity” that “constantly and actively works to Judaize Jerusalem and other Palestinian territories,” with assistance from the U.S. and West.

Mohammad Badie wrote in his weekly Arabic-language newsletter a piece titled, “Palestine … the Soul of the Islamic Nation.” In the article, Badie warns “Zionists to stop playing with fire by insulting the Al Aqsa by defiling and entering the mosque to sing and play in its courtyard.”

Badie also described the nakba not as an event that only affects Palestinians, but one that has been felt across the Arab and Muslim worlds. Badie characterized Israel’s creation as “the memory of confiscating land and property, and insulting Muslim and Christian holy places in the Holy City [Jerusalem]; in short, it is the memory of the invasion, rape and occupation of a sacred and blessed place in the Muslim and Arab abode.”

He went on to urge believers to “liberate the homeland from the filth of the brutal Zionist occupation, which is backed by the Western forces that claim freedom and human rights.”

Muslim Brotherhood Expresses Support For Hamas In Gaza


Meeting between Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas and Yusuf Qaradawi in Gaza

A senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Bureau in Egypt expressed support for Hamas during a visit to Gaza on Wednesday.

Abderrahman Al-Bar, who is visiting Gaza with a delegation headed by radical Muslim Brotherhood cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi and representatives of the International Union of Muslim Scholars (IUMS), delivered the greetings of Mohammad Badie, the General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, to Hamas leaders.

“I report to you the greetings of the General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood and all of his brothers and our brothers in Egypt,” Al-Bar said. “They are all yearning to be in this meeting and they are behind you with food and supply.”

Al-Bar also expressed his “overwhelming happiness to be in the company of the Mujahid Imam, Dr. Yusuf al-Qaradawi,” and to “meet our brothers and beloved ones and the symbol of Jihad in this time.” 

Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh described Qaradawi as “The Sheik of the Arab spring” and suggested that his visit a step toward the liberating all Palestinian land from the Israelis. The visit is “a first step towards Al-Quds, a first step towards Al-Aqsa, a first step towards Palestine – all Palestine,” he said.  

During the meeting with Hamas, Dr. Salah Sultan, an anti-Semitic media per­son­al­ity and head of the Jerusalem com­mit­tee of the IUMS, said, “We hope, with the Will of God almighty, that this significant visit announces the inauguration of a project to liberate al-Quds [Jerusalem] and Palestine.”

Qaradawi, who recently boycotted an interfaith conference in Doha because he refuses to dialogue with Jews, reportedly said yesterday, “This land has never once been a Jewish land. Palestine is for the Arab Islamic nation.”
