Egypt Prayer for Destruction of Jews?

By Matthew Clark1351005096000

Dangers continue to increase for Christians and Jews in Egypt. News reports are saying that the former head of the Muslim Brotherhood, now President of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi “participated in prayers over the weekend in which the preacher urged Allah to ‘destroy the Jews and their supporters.’”

This prayer service was broadcast on state-run television in Egypt on Friday. The Anti-Defamation League confirmed that Morsi himself could be plainly seen “mouthing ‘amen.’”

The anti-Semitic prayer included implicit attacks on Christians, Americans, and other “supporters” of Israel. The Cleric stated:

Oh Allah, absolve us of our sins, strengthen us, and grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord.

It has also been reported that an early draft of Egypt’s new constitution provides that “the principles of Islamic Shari’a are the main source of legislation” – a stated goal of the new political head of the Muslim Brotherhood. This only further stokes growing fears of the rise of a new radical Islamic power in the Middle East.

We will continue to follow the situation in Egypt and defend the plight of Jews and Christians alike against this increasingly radical regime. Join our call for the U.S. to stop sending the Muslim Brotherhood-led regime our tax dollars by signing our petition.

Now we know why apocalyptic jihadists rule vast stretches of the Middle East, beheading and burning alive all who oppose them. Because it’s too hard to start a business in Syria. At least that’s the verdict of State Department spokesperson Marie Harf, who declared earlier this week that fighting...

War on ISIS Is Still Ineffectual

As Andrew noted , last night State Department spokesperson Marie Harf declared that we “cannot kill our way out of this war.” Instead, she supports — of course — dealing with “root causes,” like — you know — insufficient young entrepreneurs in the Middle East. Facing intense criticism, she took to...
