Egyptian Prime Minister Attends Anti-Semitic Sermon

Dr. Alaa Abdulaziz, Egypt’s Minister of Culture, speaks at anti-Semitic rally

Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil and other members of his cabinet attended an anti-Semitic sermon today at Rabiaa al-Adawia Mosque in Cairo. Dr. Salah Sultan, a member of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, delivered the sermon, which called the Jews “the enemies of God… The cursed ones.”

Sultan asked Muslims to be ready to fight the “sons of Israel” and called upon Christians to remember that Jews conspired to kill Jesus and accused his mother of adultery.

Sultan also made the preposterous claim that in the Talmud teaches that God created Jews from human sperm and the non-Jews from animal sperm” so that the non-Jews serve as animals to the Jews. He also criticized the culture in Egypt before the revolution because it recognized Israel and called for a correction in education about Palestine.

After the sermon, Egypt’s Minister of Culture, Dr. Alaa Abdulaziz, delivered a short speech to reiterate Egypt’s commitment to consider “Jerusalem a capital for Palestine.”

The sermon was part of Egypt’s commemoration of the memory of the Isra and Mi’raj, the night journey of Prophet Mohammed to Jerusalem. Other rallies also took place in Cairo to commemorate what many in Arab world consider the 46th anniversary of the occupation of eastern Jerusalem by Israeli forces.

In October of last year, ADL expressed concern after President Morsi attended a sermon, which featured similar anti-Semitism.

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.”

Egypt-Based Group Shows Children Preparing To Fight Zionists And Jews

An Egypt-based group affiliated with radical Muslim Brotherhood ideologue, Sheik Yusuf al-Qaradawi, has released a new video showing children being taught to fight and kill Israelis.

The video, released yesterday by Al-Aqsa Trustees Movement, an organization that describes its mission as “raising new generations to liberate Jerusalem,” was created to show the types of activities organized by the group’s Aqsa Child Committee.

The video depicts what appear to be kindergarten-aged children in Egypt angrily cursing, attacking and beheading cardboard cutouts of Israeli soldiers with Stars of David on their heads.

The Al-Aqsa Trustees Movement is headed by anti-Semite Salah Sultan, the head the of the Jerusalem com­mit­tee of the Inter­na­tional Union of Mus­lim Schol­ars, which was founded by al-Qaradawi. The Trustees Movement was founded, according Sultan, “to create a new generation who will carry the trust of Al-Aqsa in the face of Jews…We hope that the young men and young women of this Ummah will join us.”

The video starts with a written introduction stating: “After the children learned about Al-Aqsa Mosque and what the Jews did to it, they went to kill the Zionists and liberate the Mosque.” The children are then shown engaging in a game where they attack human shaped cardboard cutouts of Israeli soldiers with Stars of David on their heads.

At the end of the video, one child is shown carrying the head of one of the cardboard Israeli soldier and saying, “Look how the Zionist soldier ended.” A teacher then tells the children, “play kids, play,” and says “look how he tramples him,” referring to one child who steps on one of the cardboard soldiers. Another teacher is heard saying “hit him, hit.”

Those interested in joining the Al-Aqsa Trustees Movement are required to fill out an application form and pledge allegiance to the group’s programs, according to its Facebook page. 200 applicants have apparently already been accepted, according to the page.

According to Hager Al-Oshary, a member of the group’s Executive Committee, the group has previously organized activities at Cairo University, including a rally to “remind the Arab Youth about their duty towards the Palestinian cause.”
